Review: Double Enchantment - Kathryne Kennedy


When Lady Jasmina accidentally creates a double of herself who knows nothing about Society propriety, the mix-up brings her into a very compromising position with a sexy were-stallion.

My thoughts:
This is book two, but it works perfectly as a stand alone and you can just jump straight in. There is a little prologue at first explaining why and what magic is.

And on to the book. Jasmine is a proper young lady, until a spell backfires on her. Which leads her to meet a shapeshifter, and those are just so beneath her social standing. Too bad Sterling is a total hottie and sparks fly. The book is about Jasmine trying to find a missing magical relic, and the twin she created with magic. Her very naughty twin. Sterling is sent to help her, and he wants her. But he does seem to have a few issues to deal with.

Oh and there is a gnome! At first I did not like him, but he was fun in the end. And annoying! Poor Jasmine. Also loved her aunt Nettie. So glad about a thing that happened *giggles*

A magical story set in an alternate England.

And now on to the spoiler....

Sterling meets the illusion twin first and has sex with her! Wtf? And lusts after her. Then he gets disappointed when he meets the real deal. But oh she is after a while nice too. All while All I can think of is that he had sex with her TWIN! Fail!

Conclusion:
A very different kind of London, and rules will be broken.

  2. LOL. Thats what I was thinking too. Having a "naughty" twin of yourself would be so awkard.

  3. Pass - mostly because of the whole twin thing. I think I was actually going to read the first in the series and haven't gotten around to it yet. I wonder if it's still on my shelf.

  10. Oh yeah, I wouldn't have noticed the gnome if you haven't said anything! :))) I haven't read this one, but I liked the first book - it was such a mish mash of genres. You'd like it, Blodeuedd. Great review, I've enjoyed the wtfkery LOL

      Book 1 was better though, but that is cos I always like the world better first when I am all enchanted with the idea of it

  14. A were-stallion? This is unexpected awesomeness! That cover is pretty funny though. The gnome sounds cool, and it's really great that you can jump right in to book two in the series. But that spoiler!! OMG! I shouldn't have read it, but I did. Yes, fail. Majorly. Still kind of want to read it to see what this were stallion is all about though. :-) Awesome review!

  17. I have read this book, years ago and I remember enjoying this series very much. Wasn't that twin just magical and temporary?
    Perhaps I have to re-read it for the gnome :)

  20. Blod, you are speaking my language. A sexy were-stallion, London and a gnome. I'm adding this to my wishlist immediately.
