Montgomery de Paget has the task of rebuilding the most dilapidated castle in England, what he hadn’t expected was to find ghosts and danger of the magic kind, within the walls. His elder brothers have come to help, but rile him as he looks over the disaster his father has given him. His nephew stays to learn how to be a knight and to help his uncle with what seems to be an insurmountable task.
Pippa Alexander has been invited to England to showcase her costumes at an upscale party. The only problem is her older sister insists on being the Fairy Queen. Pippa is disappointed, as she also finds herself falling in love, with the man her sister is pursuing. Reminding herself she doesn’t believe in fairies or magic, even though the walls of the castle seem to be talking to her.
When the past and present come together Montgomery and Pippa, find there are others in both time zones. As their love blossoms, Cinderella Alexander, the annoying big sister keeps popping up at the wrong moment. This is a great romance with every tiny detail covered, but too much detail detracted from the love story and the plot for this reviewer.
In places it becomes very confusing as you meet relatives in the past and present, and then find your mind has far too many names to put relationships together well. I loved the magical part and the indomitable Montgomery, with his noble knight ways. The dilapidated, medieval castle, filled with holes in walls and large cobwebs, came to life with whispers and images that gave me goose-bumps.
ONE ENCHANTED EVENING is a passionate tale filled with intrigue, danger, magic and an enchanting hero, many readers will fall for.
