Some Enchanted Evening
By Christina Dodd
Read by Elizabeth Sastre
Princess Clarice and
her sister Amy survive on the money they earn selling a beauty cream
of sorts. A revolution chases them from their small kingdom to England
and later Scotland. In Scotland, Clarice takes up with Robert MacKenzie,
the Earl of Hepburn. Soon she and Amy accept the Earl’s invitation
to live with him and his sister. Clarice and Amy continue to speak
various languages and train themselves for their prospective princes.
Robert controls his lands and everyone on them. He wants Clarice
and eventually seduces her, but he doesn’t ask for her hand
in marriage. He does ask her to help him in a vengeful plot, a plot
that puts her and Amy in danger.
Wait a minute, what kind
of hero is this Earl? Can he redeem himself in the eyes of the readers?
Will Clarice demand more from him or continue to wait for her prince
Desirous women vs.
jealous ones, a hero who walks a fine line between good and bad,
not to mention numerous sensual loves scenes; Dodd fans should be
pleased with the Lost Princesses trilogy. The humor is
subtle. The characters’ emotions speak to the readers. And
the historical atmosphere is near flawless. Some Enchanted Evening
is a romantic tale adeptly prepared to take its readers to another
place and time.
