Romance: Two hearts united

Mary Balogh offers another poignant and heart-wrenching story in her Survivors’ Club series in Only Enchanting. Flavian, Viscount Ponsonby, visits a fellow Survivors’ Club member’s home for their annual reunion and meets a young gentlewoman and widow, Agnes Keeping. She is content with her life, and she purposefully avoids impulse and passion. But when she sees the charming, handsome Flavian, she quickly falls for him. War injuries left Flavian with memory gaps that still plague him, but despite his fuzzy past, he’s sure he wants Agnes in his future. Flavian persuades her to marry him, and they travel to London to take up their new life. But they quickly discover that old wounds and uncomfortable history put a wedge between them and their hope for happiness. Although Agnes blames their marital woes on her seemingly too intense feelings for Flavian, he is relieved when she decides to make their marriage work. But there are foes and gossip to defeat, and these two will have to be honest and open-hearted to beat the odds. This introspective, lovely romance will leave readers sighing.

They even manage to make a match for Eli’s single mom, the story of which takes up the first third of the novel. Fast-forward 20 years, and computer genius and government operative Eli Harcourt, who went from geeky kid to gorgeous man, has reached out to his childhood friend Chelsea Hamilton. They lost touch as teens, and now he invites her to visit his home in Virginia—she’s the one who got away and he’s determined to change that. Chelsea, who’s been somewhat aimless in the intervening years, isn’t so sure about this reunion. When she arrives, his changed appearance makes her even more uncertain. But pretty soon, Eli and Chelsea fall into another Robin and Marian-style suspenseful adventure, peopled with helpful and entertaining secondary characters. Will their hearts be resolved when the mystery is solved? Deveraux’s latest is a fast-paced charmer.
