Montgomery finally has a story! I have to admit I am a HUGE Lynn Kurland fan (I have every one of her books) and I have been counting down the days until One Enchanted Evening was available.

I fell in love with Montgomery when he was a teenager in When I Fall In Love and he was firmly convinced that Jennifer was from Faery. Well, Montgomery has finally put all of that behind him, working hard to live up to the reputation of his father and older brothers (and it is alot to live up to).

What a magical story! I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it hard to stop reading when I had to. The characters were well rounded and I appreciate the author's touch with dry humor.

Also, I felt that Pippa's reaction to tumbling back in time to be more realistic in that she kind of freaked out and didn't readily accept the situation and adjust within 3 pages.

One thing - I really think these books should be read in order because when Pippa and Montgomery met all the relatives and the reader was int

One Enchanted Evening is a time travelling romance for what Lynn Kurland is most well known for and in true style this book does not disappoint.

Our hero is Montgomery De Piaget a Knight who seems to have a lot of responsibilities except the ones he wants the most - such as a wife, children and a home. Instead he has been charged with the daunting task of having to rebuild the fallen castle of Artane to its former glory.
Enter our Modern Washington heroine Pippa Alexander. S

Having waited for years for Montgomery de Piaget's story, I can say it was well worth the wait. Having read all of Lynn Kurland's wonderful books, she has once again taken me to a place few authors have. For a trip to the delightful, amazing time-traveling world of the medieval de Piaget family, re-acquainting myself with so many great characters from her previous books in the series, is a trip I always look forward to taking. Ms. Kurland never fails to "enchant" me with her humor, quick and cle ...more

Not my favorite, but still ok. I thought it drug a little bit. I was, however, happy to finally see one of the boys go after their woman in HER world just to prove that he wanted her.

**After reading the most recent DePiaget novel, I had to go back and read the three sister's (Pippa, Tess and Peaches) stories in order and one right after the other. Because.......they all happen within weeks of each other - in the stories - but were written/published years apart. Slight little comments or facts n

I always enjoy Lynn's books and this one was was true to form. I liked Montgomery, but he wasn't the "alpha male" I have come to expect from Lynn. I found myself wanting him to take charge more. I wanted him to kick out those previous tenants. I wanted him to reveal his feelings for Pippa a lot earlier than he did.

Thoroughly enjoyable, but not my favorite.

3.5 Stars. I was in the mood for a good time travel romance, and this fit the bill nicely! This is not the 1st book in the series but was easy to keep up with nevertheless. I will be going back and reading them in order, however. Even tho this was an older book, nothing dated it.

I love reading the continuing saga of the De Piaget family. This is Montgomery's story and I can't wait to read the rest of his siblings' adventures, especially what happened to his twin brother, John.

My first Lynn Kurland book. I loved it. Great writing, romance and adventure with absolutely NO unnecessary "details" to compromise it. Definitely PG rated. I can't wait to read them all!

Montgomery de Piaget glaubt nicht an Magie. Das sagt er sich zumindest immer wieder, während er die heruntergekommene Burg, die er von seinem Vater geerbt hat, versucht, im Jahre 1241 wieder aufzubauen. Da kommt es eigentlich gar nicht gut, wenn ausgerechnet ihm eine Fee vor die Füße fällt. Das Chaos ist perfekt, als sich herausstellt, dass die Fee Persephone, kurz: Pippa, heißt und aus der Gegenwart stammt!

Herrlich! Der Roman ist sooo schön! Ein Märchen wie es im Buche steht! *h

2.5 starts. I was very excited to try One Enchanted Evening because Kurland writes so many books and it looked fun and quirky but halfway through I keep asking "is this going to go somewhere? Is something going to happen? Are they going to keep doing nothing?" I hate to say it but this is a really boring book. The premise is promising, but in reality it is slow and even the few funny parts are not that funny. There is really no romance and I am halfway through. THey just keep having the same int ...more

Great as always... This one was a little bit weird as far as wording a few parts of the book but I was super happy with it... Raised all kinds of questions about what happened to John and what not... kinda knew what century they'd end up in only because of reading Till There Was You -- Mary says she was going to Montgomery's keep and that there were kids to take care of there...

I could not get beyond the first chapter. It just dragged and took forever to introduce characters and backstory. I don't want to "read more and it gets better". If I don't care about the characters by the middle of the first chapter, I close it. So this book gets a DNF.

By the way, I had not read any of the other books in this series. I have read Kurland before, but could not tell you which books.

I really liked this story with it meddling ghosts and crazy siblings and cousins. The beginning of the book was a little slow for me with all the explainations of hippy parents and crazy Cindi parading around like an evil step-sister. Once she was out of the picture things improved drastically for Montgomery and Pippa. Overall it was a great time-travel romance with a touch of humor.

I was so excited to read Montgomery de Piaget's story! Unfortunately, this one fell a little flat for me. There was one character who annoyed me to no end, and this character really ruined the story for me. Still, I love Lynn Kurland and I'll read anything she writes.

Couldn't finish it. Can't put my finger on it. Guess I couldn't grasp the characters
Similar story line to the Christmas Cat Short story book Kurland has an entry in one but of course this one is more developed.

I love this series & I wish I'd read them all before leaving my home state.

Montgomery de Piaget (Robin's youngest brother) and Pippa, a modern-day seamstress with a flair for adding the medieval to her designs. Fun and cute like the others, a little bit too much on the side of assuming that everyone's dream is a husband/wife, and lots of kids....

An adorable story of a present day seamstress/designer meeting up with the youngest De Paiget men in a cesspit and holey castle. Love the language and adventure with the traveling history romance!!!

Sixth in the De Piaget time-traveling, historical paranormal romance series. Chronologically, it should come after Stardust of Yesterday , 11, which is all about Kendrick's adventures and how his romantic life completes itself. After all, if Kendrick is going to be showing up at contemporary Artane, with 13-year-old triplets…

My Take
The "4" is my compromise between the "3" I wanted to plant on it for Pippa allowing Cindi to be such a bitch and the "5" I felt for the rest of the story. It really

I’m in shock. There hasn’t been a Lynn Kurland book to date that I haven’t totally loved. Until now. I just like this one. It’s still a good book, wonderful characters, great time traveling, and a good storyline. But this time there was a little silliness included and that just didn’t work for me, especially because it took away from the beautiful writing that Ms. Kurland is known for in her books.

Pippa Alexander’s passion is fashion design. She’s just shy of getting her huge break in the busine
