Part of the A Midsummer Night's Fling anthology
YA Historical Romance with Fantasy
How do you choose between mere moments and a lifetime?
Aithne was raised on fairytales, spending hours daydreaming about meeting one of the elusive Fae. Little did she know, hidden in the shadows, a Fae Prince stood watching. All it took was one glance and Hadrian became enchanted, unable to stay away. Revealing his presence, Aithne's life was forever changed as her childhood fantasies of magic became a reality.
With each encounter, Aithne fell deeper in love and even though she knew Hadrian couldn't offer her the future she craved, it was enough. That was until William, the local blacksmith's son and friend, stepped forward. Wearing his own heart on his sleeve, and eager to claim Aithne as his wife, there was nothing William wouldn't do for the girl he loved. Even if it meant risking it all at the Midsummer Night's festival.
Three enchanted hearts ... two honorable men ... one important choice.
Enchanted is a great novella filled with magic and love and a girl who to choose between her childhood fantasy and a future any girl would love to have. I was shocked at the choice I made at the beginning of the book for who I wanted her to be with. But I can't tell you.
This is a sweet magical love story. The world Belinda created was beautiful. I love stories placed back in the old days where people still believed in magic.
Aithne has a lot of growing up to do in this book. She is faced with the biggest decision of her life. Both men do love her but there is only one way for it to end. I of coarse loved who she picked. He was the right choice.
If you are looking for a beautiful faery tale with love and magic, then I think you will really enjoy what Enchanted Hearts has to offer.
