CharmedHer legacy had been as much a curse as a blessing so Anastasia Donovan had learned to keep it hidden But when single dad Boone Sawyer swept into her heart she I don t usually read Nora Roberts novels nor in her genre However I found this book and it looked striking at first so I thought it might open me up to her Instead it validated what I had originally thoughtI only was able to get through Charmed and I thought it was awfully convenient The characters didn t have a lot of layering and they always appeared in the correct places in order for an interaction to occur I understand wanting the plot to move uickly but the pace was far too fast and unrealistic The characters had no depth and their emotions were merely convenient to the plotFor me Roberts writing style is boring I couldn t see any distinction between the objective and subjective and there was nothing thought provoking to consider Instead every scene every emotion every character trait seemed polished with perfect romanticism in order to portray a shiny world Unfortunately shiny isn t interesting Also what is up with so many scenes in which the characters literally rip each other s clothes off I d be angry if somebody ruined my clothesHowever I thought the plot was potentially interesting and if the characters had been embellished with intriguing characteristics rather than suitable ones or if the language was advanced and appealing it could have been a good read But I do indeed understand why romantics would rave for her and why skeptics like me don t receive much satisfaction from undeveloped fluffy words

CharmedEnchanted

N with a power she'd never imagined possible But before Liam could give Rowan his love he first had to trust her with the incredible truth about himselfand his famil I ve read a lot of Nora Roberts over the years I think she was the author of my first romance novel You know what you get when you read a Nora Roberts book no real surprises same destination it s just the journey that varies That can be said for this double edition of the Donovan Saga This is really of a guilty pleasure than any kind of advanced reading I read so much that romances really just fill the time and are entertaining This book was just that entertainment Charmed is the story of Ana and Boone Ana Donovan comes from a long lineage of very powerful witches Yeah that s right She s a witch She and all of her cousins see other Donovan novels practice witchcraft in varying ways Ana is an empath She is sensitive to other s feelings their aches and pains and can link psychically to their minds She works as an herbalist making lotions and potions for her cousin s shop Wicca and specialized treatments for her clients She lives alone and has resigned herself to helping others without getting close or letting them know her true self This changes when her new neighbors move in next door Boone Sawyer father of spunky 6 year old Jessie has moved to escape the pressures of his extended family and give him and his daughter a fresh start After Boone s wife passed away four years ago pressures to find a mother for his child were becoming increasingly stressful after constant badgering from his mother and mother in law Boone falls for the lovely lady next door who picks flowers in the moonlight takes long walks on the beach and is enad with his daughter Yet Ana is reluctant to give over her heart and afraid to reveal her true heritage having been burned before Boone a moderately successful children s book author seems to have walked right into his own fairytale and found that the witch isn t so wicked Seeing as I ve read so many of Robert s books this one tilted me the wrong way It s no surprise at the end that the main characters are going to be together That s kind of the mandate of romance novels What I take issue with is the common belief of these types of novels that all women want is to get married and have kids I m not sure when this particular female fantasy died for me I just know that it did And I tire of reading the epilogues of these kinds of books where they end up married and have like 10 children I get it It s one of those things that is to be assumed all women want Maybe in life But reading allows a type of fantasy free from normal life Especially in a novel about witches Let s be honest Are you reading a Nora Robert s novel for the happily ever after ending No You aren t You re reading it for the crazy love fest that s going to be happening once the main characters stop fighting and realize how bad they want each other So why the tagged on ending where everyone is married and pregnant I m so tired of reading this ending that it makes me roll my eyes and gag with all the sappy sweetness Maybe I should stop reading the epilogues Clearly I m over them Another issue with Robert s work is the archetypal female lead who is controlled by her main man Often during a fight the woman gets lifted up and tossed over the man s shoulder as he drags her away to a place where she will be forced to listen to him While the woman doesn t always take this graciously I think this is one of the most offensive things a man can do to them Picking someone up and carrying them away by force is degrading praying on the weak willed female who needs a man to set her straight Sorry but if someone lifted me up and whisked me away so that I would stop screaming at them they are likely to get a booted kick right to the man parts As wonderfully romantic as it seems to be swept off your feet this is directly the opposite being controlled by man used to getting his way As long as we are complaining why is every female lead a virgin Ok I get it Ana was burned by her former boyfriend who spurned her after she told him she was a witch They didn t make it to the fun part Is it fear of labeling a woman as a slut because she s slept with someone else and not the very handsome stranger that happens to appear and romance her Boone slept with other women Several actually He admits to having lots of female companions after his wife died So that s ok then But Ana having one boyfriend isn t Let s ditch this sorry story and get real Why label every female as virgin Just once I d like to read a story about a woman who isn t innocent as white fallen snow to her rough and tumble male counterpart That s all I m asking If you ve put up this far with my ranting you d probably assume that I didn t like this novel On the contrary Aside from the niggling issues of most romance novels this story was pretty enjoyable Ana s magical practices are nifty and homegrown She s an avid gardener and the whole naturalist witch appealed to me Making poultices potions lotions seemed like a reasonable way to make a living especially in our organic crazed world And unlike some novels ahem Among Others by Jo Walton Ana actually did magic Lots of it too Not just weaving spells and crafting thunderstorms but healing and comforting magic As with most of Robert s saga novels the whole family comes together once or twice and jumbles the story into a mash of names and inside references Robert s mostly does a good job of keeping everyone straight and giving a first time reader a background story if they missed the first or even second installment I felt a little lost when the extended family showed up but Robert s clearly knows her stuff and didn t make it about them This was Ana s story in the Donovan history books In all Charmed was an enjoyable read It also spurred some research on the productive Mrs Roberts and I realized that though Goodreads doesn t reflect it I ve read a boat load of her books Next up Enchanted It took me a long time to get through this book and I m not sure why Time and lack of interest I suppose Rowan Murray is tired of having her life planned for her by her well meaning but safe parents and her well meaning but boring boyfriend In desperation to escape she flees to a friend s cottage in Oregon to find herself again and get some space There she can relax spend her days enjoying herself and renew long buried passions like drawing while in the wilderness Rowan finds comfort in a wandering lone wolf who appears skulking in the woods around her cottage She doesn t fear him and even lets him in during lonely nights for company Then there is her neighbor on the other side of the forest Liam Donovan Difficult stubborn and unfriendly Liam just wants to be left alone for the most part Nursing his own life changing decision Liam has left his family to make up his mind about his heritage and accepting his birthright He didn t want to get involved with Rowan but seeing as she is around and willing he might make an exception about sleeping with her It s not until her own heritage becomes apparent that Liam may have fallen in love with the perfect girl To be honest Enchanted was a bit hokey Whereas Charmed was cute and vaguely Wiccan Enchanted is just bordering on silly White robes and glass orbs glowing white lights and shape shifting spirit animals it sort of read something like one of those knick knack stores that sells incense and wizard figurines The magic was unimpressive and the psychic mind sex felt sort of wrong not thrilling Liam has so many talents in magic that it was almost irritating how many things he could just DO without trying His attitude fell short of being attractive either and I found myself wondering why Rowan even liked the guy Rowan s character was fine if a little predictable I know we aren t inventing the wheel here but her only character flaw is liking a jerk While Liam was encouraging of her talents he was also using her most of the book to his own ends The best part of the book is when Rowan tells him off and stands up for herself Mostly she spends her time eating cookies for breakfast and taking long trips into the woods I was glad to be finished this one Don t go looking for anything special Some of the sex scenes are intense but otherwise there are better Harleuins than this one
