"Lions and dragons and . . . mice?"

Felicity knows that she is plain and of little consequence, but she is also completely unnoticeable to the point that she's constantly being bumped into, even sat upon. Worse, she fails the test of having any semblance of magic and therefore has to cede her title of Lady along with her inheritance of properties in a parallel Regency England where magical ability determines status.

As a shape shifter, Terence Blackwell is retained by the crown to sniff out the dangerous relic magic as only shifters have the ability to do, and destroy any of the forbidden magic and those who wield it. When the lovely Felicity comes to court for her testing, she is reeking of the taint, though whether a spell was cast upon her or she cast it upon herself, Terence must determine. Though he can't credit any purpose for someone so vastly beautiful to want to hide it beneath a dark spell.

Enchanting The Lady is an interesting view of how our world could be with magic and the lengths aristocrats will go to flaunt it. As a shape shifter, Terence is fun and truly heroic with a bit of a vulnerable side. Everything we like in a hero. Felicity, on the other hand, could use a little more spunk, instead of just allowing events to unfold around her. Though her wit and unusual way of looking at things did make her endearing. The secondary characters are delightful, especially the mouse shifting manservant. This book is an enjoyable enchanting read with a light dreamy appeal.

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 duchy-and 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 her-the 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.
