For on the day when she must yield all that was dear to her, a time when she must denounce her heritage, she would have preferred gloomy overcast weather. A narrow lane between the galleries and. field of combat permitted a few peasants a view of the tourney, while most of them gathered on the hills outside the newly erected palisades or climbed atop those village houses that had slate roofs. Several spectators had even occupied the cathedral’s bell tower. If she had hoped no one would turn out for the jousting, she had erred.

Rita-lou randall was back! Back with a vengeance, and Silver City, New Mexico, might never be the same. Dominique de Bar, proclaimed by some a seductress, by others a sorceress, was the chatelaine of Montlimoux, its mistress of moonlit spires and sunlit meadows, a chatelaine of a peaceful, contented land that time had left behind. Paxton of Wychchester was a leader of men, a conqueror who knew more of war than love. He commanded Dominique’s surrender, taking first her lush holdings and then her vulnerable virgin’s body. But in the sweet ecstasy of their union lay an unexpected twist.

Chatelaine: To some she seemed a seductress, to some a sorceress, but to the people of Montlimoux, she was chatelaine, mistress of moonlit spires and sunlit meadows, of a sleepy contented land that time had left behind. The bewitching Countess Dominique de Bar had devoted her life to making Montlimoux a place of peace and harmony; now all her efforts were threatened by a single stranger disguised in beggar's garb. Paxton of Wynchester: Was a leader of men, a conqueror who knew more of war than love. He demanded Dominique's surrender, taking first her lush holdings and then her vulnerable virgin's body. But in the sweet ecstasy of their union lay an unexpected twist. Which of them had been seduced, and which truly conquered? As he fell deeper under Dominique's silken spell, Paxton realized her had seriously underestimated the power of a woman's love . . . http://historicalromancewriters.com/bookinfo.cfm?bookID=8379

Parris Afton Bonds is a master when it comes to writing historical fiction! And her novel, “Sweet Enchantress,” is a book to be savored for its ability to take hold of the reader! First of all, her vivid descriptions transported me back in time, into those medieval ages that were so dark and oppressive. I was quickly caught up in the binding rules and regulations of the period. They were rigid and unmerciful, especially for women. But the heroine in this novel isn’t an ordinary woman. Unlike many, Countess Dominique’s educated background included familiarity with the healing arts and a well-developed sense of self. Unfortunately, such gifts were not welcomed by the church or those in charge. When a man named Paxton takes over Dominique’s lands, she must decide how to proceed. When Paxton tries to humiliate her into submission, her choices are few, but she isn’t the type to simply give into her circumstances. The interaction between Paxton and Dominique is portrayed in a way that’s believable and complex. The author has thoughtfully and beautifully depicted not only the different sides of love and hate, but how both can be part of a dynamic relationship. Highly recommended!

Sweet Enchantress is a thoroughly researched, lyrically written romance set in the France of several hundred years ago. Full of action and mysticism, it features well-drawn characters, vibrant settings, and a solid grounding in historical fact. Bonds has been writing strong female characters and exploring the powers of mind and spirit for decades. This story was developed well before today's blockbuster tales like Game of Thrones, Vikings and others that feature heroines as strong and central as male heroes, and that explore spiritualism, visions and alternative means of healing. Sweet Enchantress was ahead of its time in this way. It's also a good read in any time.

The characters are poorly developed and not likable. The infidelity of the "Hero" both before and after his marriage is a complete turn off. The authors greatest mistake is the focus of the story on alchemy to the point that it's not just distracting but downright boring. The tedious details of the "Heroine's" spiritual and alchemical studies and practices IS the story. This is not a romance, it's a rambling account of disjointed, overly descriptive scenes of the aforementioned spiritual and alchemical "studies" that leaves a reader completely dissatisfied. Don't waste your money or your time. The author shows promise as a writer but needs a good editor and some Beta readers to help her craft her story into something worth reading.

This is a great medieval historical read from Parris Afton Bonds. The main characters Dominique and Paxton are rich and strong and both prideful and stubborn. I also liked The secondary characters, her 'grandparents', the Jewish steward and Templar Knight with leprosy, who loved her with such devotion. It was hard to understand Paxton's infidelity and rejection of her love. Dominique pours all of herself and love into him to save him, almost to the point of death. A page turner, hard to put down.

Parris Afton Bonds is a master storyteller who makes history come alive in Sweet Enchantress. Not only does the reader feel as though she has been transported to the Middle Ages through the characters' dialogue but you find yourself believing that even the narrator speaks to you from the past. Bonds research into the events, customs, dress, and language of the time makes the story seem to have been scripted during the period of Edward III. Highly recommended.

I found this book strangly appealing. It's definitely not your typical historical romance but I enjoyed it. I found myself unable to put it down. Paxton is a soldier scarred both inside and out who only believes what he can see and touch. Dominique is a student of the spiritual and mystical arts. Neither want to give up who they are but they can't be happy with the other representing the exact opposite of what they stand for and believe. Neither can be happy without the other though so happiness begets sadness, joy begets sorrow, and love begets hate unless the two can find a middle ground to accept and nourish.

As this author did not disclose a time period, I googled Pope Benedict X11. He reined pope in 1334 and died in 1342. This book was most depressing. I know it was a warring time for the English and the French but it was too ruthless for my taste. And the infidelity of Paxton did not make him a hero. He was just disgusting. Vile. I never really understood Dominique either. I prefer books from the Victorian or Recency era but I made this one to the end.
Okay first thing is I like the fluidity of the writing. I was taken back in time and could picture what was going on. I even liked the main characters in the beginning. Though the book does start off slow and I almost gave up on reading it but once it picked up I was able to stick with it. I will rate it a 3 star because I hate an unfaithful man in a romance novel and I loved the female but she seriously started acting like a love sick puppy instead of a strong standing independent woman she was first meant to be. Also she gave it up to him way to easy a girl needs to be able to hold out a little longer. This wasn't a terrible read but it wasn't a worth it read either. There are way better romance novels out there.
