Bride Enchanted – Edith Layton

Layton, Edith. Bride Enchanted. (New York: Avon, 2007). 9780061253621.

Main Characters: Eve Faraday and Aubrey Ashford

Description from the book:

Too good to be true . . .

Though Eve Faraday was beautiful and intelligent, she never expected to be wooed by the devastatingly handsome and utterly charming Aubrey Ashord, the most eligible bachelor in all of London. Skeptical of the sudden attention, she tries hard to avoid temptation, but the alluring Aubrey – and his kisses – prove impossible to resist! She accepts his offer of marriage and moves with him to his ancestral home at Fair Isle. But after such a whirlwind courtship and lightning-quick marriage, Eve begins to wonder if she really knows Aubrey at all. There is something mysterious, something magical and primeval about her new husband . . .

Aubrey is not who he appears to be – that much is certain. But his feelings for Eve are true. And only when he reveals his astonishing secret will Eve realize that she and Aubrey might have a chance at a love that will last forever . . .

My Thoughts:

I have to say that I do not care for paranormal or mystical tales – and had I realized that this novel had such elements, I probably would not have purchased it. That being said, I did enjoy the overall story. Admittedly, I enjoyed the first part of the book more than the latter – because the later part of the book centered more around Aubrey and his people. Eve and Aubrey are interesting characters who deal well with each other. However, I still am not overly certain about what Aubrey actually is or what Aubrey, Eve and their son will do – or in what world they live. I could feel Eve’s confusion and uncertainty about how to deal with Aubrey’s life.
