Review by: Tiger Lily
It's rumored that Twyla Harper is a thief. With a smile and a wink, she seems able to get most anyone to do anything.
Then one day she meets Nicholas Coultrain, a charming Irish rogue. Used to keeping men at arm's length, she isn't prepared for the speed with which he gets under her skin and into her heart. There's only one problem: he's a security consultant whose company is about to be destroyed because of a heist Twyla pulled.
Nicholas is out of his element, out of his area, and nearly out of time. When a good client is robbed, his only hope is to find the thief, and return the millions of dollars worth of gems. An anonymous tip points him at Twyla. But meeting 'the Enchantress' only makes things more complicated: it's hard to set a trap for the woman when he's falling in love with her.
Add one thief, one security specialist, and stolen jewels and what have you got? The Enchantress: Song of the Sirens 2.
Ms. Ashbury writes a great suspenseful novel. The conflicts keep the reader entertained and on the edge of his or her seat. I liked that her characters were strong-willed, down to earth, and willing to bend to meet in the middle. That combination of traits made the characters, Twyla and Nicholas easy to relate to. I also liked Ms. Ashbury’s use of contradictions. A thief shouldn’t work with a securities specialist, but in her novel it works and works well.
I respected Twyla’s need to stay private with her life. When you meet someone, how much do you really want to divulge to them on the first date? I also respected her desire to follow her heart and give Nicholas a try. As for Nicholas as a hero, I respected his desire to clear his name and liked his vigilance when it came to convincing Twyla that they would make a good pair. I like a hero that knows when to stand up and when to stand behind, just as Nicholas did. Very touching.
If you want a novel filled with red-hot love scenes, action, adventure, and precious jewels, then look no further than The Enchantress: Song of the Sirens 2. I give this novel 4 ½ cherries.
