thirteen relicsjewels that the sorcerer Merlin crafted, each holding
a different spell of powerconnect these fantasy romance novels. In
author Kathryne Kennedy's alternate Victorian reality, titles are
held by the inheritance of magical powers, with the higher title
possessing the more powerful magic. The only power greater than a
royals' is one of Merlin's thirteen relics, and their location is as
mysterious as the spell each relic contains.
The first novel, ENCHANTING THE LADY, is Felicity and Terence's story:
In a world where magic ruled everything, Felicity Seymour couldn't
perform even the simplest spell. If she didn't pass her testing,
she'd lose her duchyand any hope of marriage. But one man didn't
seem to mind her lack of dowry: a darkly delicious baronet who had
managed to scare away the rest of London's Society misses.
Sir Terence Blackwell knew the enchanting woman before him wasn't
entirely without magic. Not only could she completely disarm him
with her gorgeous lavender eyes and frank candor, but his were-lion
senses could smell a dark power on herthe same kind of relic-magic
that had killed his brother. Was she using it herself, or was it
being used against her?
One needed a husband, and the other needed answers. But only
together could they find the strongest magic of all: true love.
Subsequent novels include DOUBLE ENCHANTMENT (releasing September
2008) and ENCHANTING THE BEAST (releasing early in 2009). Each novel
revolves around a different relic that draws two new lovers together
in this magical Victorian era.
