    Actual Rating: 4+1/2 The best thing about Nora Roberts’s books is that all the sweet and magical romance makes you forget all your tensions. Well atleast they do this for me! I liked this one a lot because it was different, firstly the lead male-witch, Liam, was a shape-shifter and second the female lead, Rowan, was also a witch, coming from a family of a long-forgotten but a real one!

I liked this one a lot because it was different, firstly the lead male-witch, Liam, was a shape-shifter and second the female lead, Rowan, was also a witch, coming from a family of a long-forgotten but a real one! Rowan as a character was brilliant and successfully flaunted the stuff women go through atleast once in a lifetime like confused, vulnerable, burdened and on the tricky edge to make a life-changing decision. On the other hand, Liam is a typical egoistic and arrogant male character with “I-take-all-the-f***ing-decisions” attitude. He behaves snobbishly and keeps throwing the excuse-ball of responsibility on everyone’s face. I guess I’ve made it quite clear that I really didn’t like Liam but trust me it didn’t ruin my reading experience because at the end Rowan had the nerves to ask Liam to literally beg and confess his love. That douche-bag really deserved it! That little moment literally made up for everything! I liked the angle of a Rowan’s grandmother’s forgotten legacy. After reading Captivated, Entranced and Charmed, loosely based on the same concept, except for all the different styles of love-making ;) , this one was totally different. The writing was simple and the plot was interesting. If you’ve read the other books from the series then you’ll be happy to know that in this book we get to meet Morgana’s, Ana’s and Sebastian’s families as well. It really felt good to read about all the cousins again, as over the first three reads, one really develops a relation with the leads. You can read the original review at The Reading Bud.

She instantly falls in love with the nature around her, finally experiencing peace and serenity, and finds an unexpected friend in a wild wolf with shining eyes. Little does she know, that the wolf is none other than Liam Donovan, a witch and her brooding neighbor. Their journey to togetherness is sweet, sensual and enchanting all at once, and not only does Rowan end up finding love, but also discovers the hidden magic within. Beautiful story which would have been perfect if only the hero was not as secretive. Ms Roberts has this inane ability to make me fall in love with her characters and surroundings so much that I crave to be where they are.. the way the nature and Ireland were described..*le sigh* Safe 4/5

    "Enchanted" is an older, very sweet, mystical, sensual romance. All the elements you expect from a Nora Roberts Romance. I see elements of other NR romances here, but the story is unique and I really liked it. The setting is on the Oregon coast and Liam is a Donovan cousin. As a wrap to the series, I loved seeing the others, about five years in the future, but the story is all Liam and Rowan.

    Rowan Murray needs to think about her life, what she wants out of it, and how to get it. Her parents have been making her decisions for her all this time, and it is just not what she wants. They are both brilliant academics, and want her to be a teacher as well, going for her doctorate, and marrying Alan. But she doesn’t want to be a teacher, she knows she is not good enough and her heart is not in it. Even though she loves to learn. So she has come to this lovely little cottage in the middle of Rowan Murray needs to think about her life, what she wants out of it, and how to get it. Her parents have been making her decisions for her all this time, and it is just not what she wants. They are both brilliant academics, and want her to be a teacher as well, going for her doctorate, and marrying Alan. But she doesn’t want to be a teacher, she knows she is not good enough and her heart is not in it. Even though she loves to learn. So she has come to this lovely little cottage in the middle of the woods on the Oregon Coast to think. To just enjoy herself, without pressure from anyone else. Who would have thought she would find a handsome stranger there, who makes her heart beat faster? And that beautiful black wolf who keeps appearing whenever she is out for a walk, and who seems to be keeping her company? Her neighbour is Liam Donovan, a powerful witch, and slated to be his father’s successor as head of the family, and counsellor in magical disputes. He doesn’t know if he wants the position or not, and if he wants it, he needs to be married to a woman with elvin blood. So this attraction to Rowan Murray is very dangerous. He doesn’t want to be led by destiny; he wants to makes his own choices. Staying with her in wolf form is much safer, or else he would ravish her. She has such a low self esteem; she doesn’t know how lovely she is. And as wolf, he can share her bed with her, and take care of her when she falls asleep as usual: sitting upright, reading. He can share her dreams if he wants to, make love with her that way. Both Liam’s parents want him to hurry. To look inside of her, and see for himself. But Liam is stubborn, and doesn’t want to do that. He does encourage Rowan to make a profession of her drawings. She only sees it as a little hobby, but she is very good. Liam is designing a new computer game, and her drawings would be perfect to complement it. And so her new career begins, and the difficult job of telling her parents that she won’t be coming back to the city, she wants to stay here in Oregon, and buy herself a little cottage and start a garden. Time is running out for Liam though, he has to tell Rowan who and what he is, and to show her her own heritage, teach her. Can she accept it all, and him? And can he choose for her out of love instead of obligation, or reject her because of the same thing? Another little gem of a book by Nora Roberts. I liked Rowan a lot. It took courage to decide to go away for a few months, when she has always been pressured and persuaded by her parents to do the sensible thing, which is what they want for her. But she doesn’t want to go for her doctorate, and she doesn’t want to marry Alan. She is not in love with him, and neither is he with her. I loved how she discovered herself, and to enjoy herself, just doing nothing. Lying on her stomach and watching the ocean, and the fishing boats, and the birds. And discovering the big black wolf, and to tame it with cookies. She wanted to be able to do everything herself, so she bought books on plumbing, on car maintenance, how to work a generator. Everything so she wound not be depended on a stranger if something happened. She did not deny her attraction to Liam, but she was very naïf when she met his parents in their animal form. How can you not know that something was not right, that something magical was happening? Liam was a great brooding hero. Wanting to make all the decisions in his life for himself, and not guided by fate or destiny. But by not telling Rowan the truth, he denied her to make her own choices for herself. And in the end, that really bit him in the backside. I loved how Rowan stood up to him, and just walked out. But my favourite scene is the afternoon spend with his cousins and their families. I loved that little peek in their lives a few years later from their HEA’s. I do recommend this series to all lovers of sweet romances with just that touch of magic in them. I want to find me a Donovan all for myself! 8 stars. © 2013 Reviews by Aurian Full review on my blog, www.boeklogboek.blogspot.com

    Wow! Never thought I'd see the day when I wouldn't finish a Nora Roberts book and give it a 1 star rating but here it is. Why was this included as a fourth book in the Donovan series?

Her first day there she spots a black wolf and befriends him. Her second day there, she meets Liam who does not endear himself to her but does stir her blood. The first half of the book worried me a little bit because I could not tell where it was going. Liam invaded her privacy and she was a bit of a door mat. As the book moved along the characters learned some lessons and improved. There is a scene in the book where we get to meet the three main cousins in the series and see where they are in their lives to wrap it up.

He understood he had no right to love Rowan, knowing what lay ahead. But the allure of her beguiling innocence overpowered his will until he could resist no longer.

    I’ve read this book so many times over the years, and it remains one of my favorites if only for the magical elements and Irish tales woven into it. Of the four Donovan books in the series, this is my second favorite because I live for broody, cranky magical males. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite storytellers, and rereading this was just what I needed at the moment!

    I picked up the audiobook of Enchanted by Nora Roberts because I like this series, and I like the narrator (Alexander Cendese). Enchanted is about Rowan Murray, a young woman who isn't happy in her current life. She rents a cottage away from her family because she needs some space. There she meets Liam Donovon, who is also needing some space from his family. Liam is from a family of witches, and he's struggling with his responsibilities regarding magic and his family in Ireland.

There she meets Liam Donovon, who is also needing some space from his family. Liam is from a family of witches, and he's struggling with his responsibilities regarding magic and his family in Ireland. Rowan and Liam were really great together. I've read a lot of Nora Roberts' books, and almost always do I feel like her heroes and heroines match well together, and that is definitely the case here. I couldn't help but root for them. I really loved Rowan, and could understand her need to reflect on her life and make some changes, even if it doesn't make her family happy. I also liked Liam, who is a very typical Nora Roberts hero. He's a bit gruff, and cocky, but he is also a nice person. That said, I can't say that Enchanted is really a standout among all of Roberts' novels. I enjoyed it reading it, but once it was over, almost all the details slipped away. If you are a Nora Roberts fan, and if you have liked the other Donovon books, then I definitely think you should read Enchanted. But if haven't read NR because, I think there are better novels to start with.This review was originally posted on Quinn's Book Nook

    Just awful - until a brief section near the end of the book, there is no clue to a tie in to the rest of the Donovan Legacy books. It definitely should have been left as a trilogy and this book not written/published. Liam is an arrogant, condescending, awful man who treats everyone like they are beneath him. Rowan is an extremely weak willed, no self esteem, doormat; and maybe just the way the speaker read the audiobook but Rowan sounded like a simpleton with every word from out of her mouth.

There is just no real story for entertainment - we're just waiting for them to "fall in love" and Liam to reveal himself as a witch. Essentially what the original trilogy was about but those had interesting/good characters to engage you; this book had no good characters or storyline. One book too many in the series.

    2020 Rowan and Liam certainly make an interesting couple. I like how Rowan discovers herself and begins to discover things about her family history that she's never previously known. I liked how she became a strong, independent woman who realized that, while her family loved her, they didn't fully understand what it took to make her happy. And I liked that she was willing to include a big wolf into her life as easily as one might a stray kitten (I also would have been inviting said wolf into 2020 Rowan and Liam certainly make an interesting couple.

I thought Liam was a bit selfish (he eventually removed himself from that mindset) through the majority of the story. He cared of Rowan, obviously, but he did consider his choices to be above hers (not intentionally or even consciously). I liked this story well enough, but it didn't capture the Donovan magic like the other three in the series did. I almost wish that Roberts had rewritten the story so that it was a stand alone novel with no connection to the Donovan clan.

Again, who the hell does this? The final straw was when Liam forced a sexual dream upon Rowana. They had barely even spoken yet he feels compelled to force himself on her thru her mind. That's it. I'm done. No idea why this was added on to the series.

He’s the unmentioned cousin of Morgana, Sebastian and Anastasia and somehow manages to fit in with their dynamic just fine. It’s nice that the characters have a chance to get to know each other rather than falling into instalove (well, perhaps in parallel). Warning: Contains sexual content. Who should read it?

    I am a big Nora Roberts fan and I read all her books. This is my second time reading this book. I didn’t think it was a good story the first time I read it but since I was rereading the all the books in the series I reread this one as well. I am sorry but this book is not a book I could recommend. The hero is not a character I could embrace. I find it extremely creepy how he looks in on her while she is sleeping, invades her dreams to have sex with her (which could be considered a type of rape), I am a big Nora Roberts fan and I read all her books.

Watching her getting dressed, bathing, or listening to her share her innermost thoughts and feelings is an invasion.

    The first part of this novel seemed rather so-so, but I loved the ending. There was a lot of angst in the first part concerning Rowan - on Rowan's part and on Liam's. It is frustrating and almost tiresome. NR does her usual bang-up job of making the magical ordinary and the ordinary magical. Once Rowan is introduced to the magical world of Liam, the novel changes and becomes empowering. I like this fun and fast read.

    This was the romance novel I ever read so my opinion may be a little skewed, but the story hasn't lost any of its magic no matter how many times I reread it. Rowan is very much a heroine I can identify with and Liam is a hero that captures the readers interest (both things I find desirable in any book).

    Books that are more than 20 years old are read with different eyes and different thoughts. Enchanted is a nice story about destiny and where your choices may take you. However, what was ok to write about 20 years definitely is not ok in 2020. Scenes where a man slips into a woman's bedroom as a shapeshifter and watches her bathe and be naked are not just laughable by old standards. They are to be held up as voyeurism and question what it means to consent.

These early books are too short to get the real beating heart of a Nora Roberts novel, which is the family and friends that surround her heroines. I did love seeing "video game designer" as the hero's occupation in a romance novel from the nineties!

Rowan Murray leaves her teaching job and family in San Francisco and goes to a friend's cabin on the Oregon coast. She meets Liam Donovan and a tame black wolf. Both attract her. When they turn out to be the same person, she's troubled. Liam is a witch as is his family and he's trying to decide if he'll take over the head job from his father.

    Rowan had to get away from family and boyfriend, she needed a change in her life. She is going to stay at her friend Belinda's cabin in the woods.

    This was my least favorite Donavon Legacy book. I felt that Liam was too controlling in the relationship between him and Rowan. He decided every aspect of their relationship and decided when to reveal about his secrets and secrets that he knew about her. To me that is more unbalanced in the relationship with Liam having all the power in it. The only thing that I liked was seeing the rest of the Donavons again.

    Blech. This one was awful. I only finished because it was short and the last book in the series. The rest of this series hasn't been that great, but it's been oddly compelling and pleasant to read. This one was torturous. The problems: - From the start, this feels unnecessary because Liam Donovan isn't someone the reader knows from the first three books. Towards the end, it's explained that he's a distant cousin to that crew, and they pop down for a visit, but it's too little too late. The book st Blech. This one was awful.

The book steal feels like a lazy add on to what was initially meant to be a trilogy. - Liam really does seem like a massive dick. - Maybe because he comes over in wolf form and watches Rowan change a bunch. - And also gives her mind orgasms in her sleep a bunch????? LITERALLY WHAT THE FUCK HOW IS THIS A REAL THING THAT HAPPENED - Rowan also seems pretty TSTL basically all the time. - They have no chemistry at all. - His parents are pretty creepy and also basically stalking Rowan and just ew. So yeah, would not recommend.

    Normally Nora Roberts are typical romance novels. Slightly smutty reads, but fun for an easy read... like a Hallmark movie in a book. However, this one felt wrong. Touched on nonconsensual sexual situations and all over just creepy things. Too red flags. Not good. Not good at all.
