Review: Double Enchantment - Kathryne Kennedy


When Lady Jasmina accidentally creates a double of herself who knows nothing about Society propriety, the mix-up brings her into a very compromising position with a sexy were-stallion.

My thoughts:
This is book two, but it works perfectly as a stand alone and you can just jump straight in. There is a little prologue at first explaining why and what magic is.

And on to the book. Jasmine is a proper young lady, until a spell backfires on her. Which leads her to meet a shapeshifter, and those are just so beneath her social standing. Too bad Sterling is a total hottie and sparks fly. The book is about Jasmine trying to find a missing magical relic, and the twin she created with magic. Her very naughty twin. Sterling is sent to help her, and he wants her. But he does seem to have a few issues to deal with.

Oh and there is a gnome! At first I did not like him, but he was fun in the end. And annoying! Poor Jasmine. Also loved her aunt Nettie. So glad about a thing that happened *giggles*

A magical story set in an alternate England.

And now on to the spoiler....

Sterling meets the illusion twin first and has sex with her! Wtf? And lusts after her. Then he gets disappointed when he meets the real deal. But oh she is after a while nice too. All while All I can think of is that he had sex with her TWIN! Fail!

Conclusion:
A very different kind of London, and rules will be broken.

A WERE STALLION?! That is all I need to know about this book. SOLD! I haven't read a single book about horse shifters. CANNOT PASS THAT UP!

Jenny N. said...

LOL. Thats what I was thinking too. Having a "naughty" twin of yourself would be so awkard.

Carol said...

Pass - mostly because of the whole twin thing. I think I was actually going to read the first in the series and haven't gotten around to it yet. I wonder if it's still on my shelf.

Melliane said...

it sounds like a nice mix.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Yes, total fail... :( BUT... were stallion? Oh the joke... must. not. say. it. *sigh* I need to read it just because of that.

Carole Rae said...

0.0....poor guy he was sorts of confused I bet.

But sounds like one Hell of a journey. Twins, a were-horse, creepy gnomes, and magic. ^.^

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, and she rides him, ok that sounds dirty but he is a horse

Blodeuedd said...

Very awkward cos she got around

Blodeuedd said...

The twin thing bothered me, especially since it was the twin he wanted

Blodeuedd said...

I like the magic and the strange world

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, I said something in an earlier comment, I could not help it ;)

Blodeuedd said...

The gnomes, oh those gnomes, they were amusing.

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

I love alternate history and I like that you can just jump right in without having read the previous that is always nice for busy bloggers!

Chris said...

Is it Friday yet? *waves weakly*

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

Ok that cover is a little weird and yes I saw the gnome..LOL This sounds strange, but fun!

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Oh yeah, I wouldn't have noticed the gnome if you haven't said anything! :))) I haven't read this one, but I liked the first book - it was such a mish mash of genres. You'd like it, Blodeuedd. Great review, I've enjoyed the wtfkery LOL

Karen said...

I almost missed the little gnome! I read the spoiler and ewww. That would bug me.

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

sounds so good. maybe i should read this series!! the gnome is so cute, I LOVE the cover!

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

The little gnome is totally what sold me on it? What do you mean creepy? Gnomes are da bomb diggety :)

Unknown said...

A were-stallion? This is unexpected awesomeness! That cover is pretty funny though. The gnome sounds cool, and it's really great that you can jump right in to book two in the series. But that spoiler!! OMG! I shouldn't have read it, but I did. Yes, fail. Majorly. Still kind of want to read it to see what this were stallion is all about though. :-) Awesome review!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Ooo, I like the sounds of this. I didn't look at the spoiler. :) And I didn't see the gnome until you pointed it out! Great! :D

Blodeuedd said...

Oh yes, cos in the end I have come to realise that almost every book I read is in a series. And then I am glad some work out of order

Blodeuedd said...

not yet :/

Blodeuedd said...

I did not see him at first and then I was all, what? Why is he there? But he is in the book

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, thanks :)
Book 1 was better though, but that is cos I always like the world better first when I am all enchanted with the idea of it

Blodeuedd said...

Yeah, you get my point

Blodeuedd said...

You think? Lol, I just think it's creepy when he is peaking out, but then he was a creepy guy

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, yes they rock the garden. Peaking out from bushes and rocks

Blodeuedd said...

I know spoiler alerts are evil cos I can never stand away. But then I want to know if there is any major wtfery in a book and here there sure was. I made it through but it was..wow

Blodeuedd said...

Good girl, I can never help myself when it comes to a spoiler, I am wicked

Anachronist said...

Definitely a pass - have a nice day.

Aurian said...

I have read this book, years ago and I remember enjoying this series very much. Wasn't that twin just magical and temporary?
Perhaps I have to re-read it for the gnome :)

Book of Secrets said...

A naughty magical twin and a were-stallion? Very intriguing.

Jenny Girl said...

With this series I would expect nothing less :)

Blodeuedd said...

I thought so

Blodeuedd said...

Well yes but still, they still did things and it was just weird.

Blodeuedd said...

It was quite the mix

Blodeuedd said...

lol

The Bookworm said...

Blod, you are speaking my language. A sexy were-stallion, London and a gnome. I'm adding this to my wishlist immediately.
