The Heir & The Enchantress

Hello fellow readers,

If you have been here for any length of time, you know that I gush on and on about Paulett Golden’s Enchantress series. Well, I am super excited to be kicking off the blog tour for her newest release The Heir & The Enchantress.

We are finally getting to see Hazel’s story. You might remember we have seen Hazel in her role as mother in The Baron & The Enchantress. Now, we get to rewind time and see her as a young lady maneuvering the difficulties of being a woman in the mid 1700’s.

If you haven’t read the previous books in the series, don’t worry. This book can absolutely be read as a standalone. There is an amazing family tree included in the front of the book to help you see where everyone in the series fits into the timeline. I can’t recommend this one enough! It is such a sweet love story. I really enjoyed the fact that the love story is low angst but there is plenty of drama to carry the story. Grab a copy!

Today, I’m going to take you on a visual interpretation of The Heir & The Enchantress and introduce you to the main characters. I hope you will see this as a fun way to get to know the vibe of the book. Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway!

Some love matches begin with marriage.

Hazel Trethow is infatuated with a notorious rake despite her father’s plans to betroth her to the heir of a wealthy barony. Her scheming to find a love match for her dearest friend and herself turns into a scandal that could ruin them both.

​Harold Hobbs returns home from business in India with a plan to save his family from ruin. He does not anticipate his father’s plot to wed him to Miss Trethow. When he meets his intended, sparks fly.

​This is the love of Hazel and Harold as they find love in the most unlikely of places.

Thank you to Paullett for letting me kick off this blog tour. I hope you will all love this book as much as I do. Each book The Enchantress series has been a delight to read. Take care and happy reading, Melissa

Melissa has been in love with books since she was a child. As a young girl, in her Holly Hobby decorated room, she would sit and tape scraps of paper to her books so that she could organize them by the Dewey Decimal System. She is a huge advocate for helping children learn to love reading. Along with hosting an online Regency based book club and a book club at her home, she started a book club for kids at her son’s school. These days, Melissa can be found at the library writing a book review or tucked in some quiet corner having a love affair with a newly discovered romance novel.
