ENCHANTING THE LADY is in bookstores! By Kathryne Kennedy

 The re-release of ENCHANTING THE LADY, the first book in the RELICS OF MERLIN series, is in bookstores August 1st with a fabulous new cover! Since the magical relic in this book is a pearl, I’m celebrating with a new contest on my website, where you can enter to win a gorgeous pearl necklace. All you need to do is sign up for my newsletter. The details can be found here (after August 1st): http://www.kathrynekennedy.com/contest.html

Since this is a re-release, I won’t be doing an official blog tour this month. However, I do have six autographed Advanced Reading Copies up for grabs. You can enter to win two here, just by leaving me a comment (Make sure to check the comments tomorrow to see if you have won, I’ll post the winners at the bottom of the comments section.) I would love to know what you like best about the new cover. For me, my favorite element is Daisy, the little dragonette on Felicity’s shoulder!

As Always,
Wishing You My Magical Best,


In a Victorian England with a rigid hierarchy of magic, lion shape-shifter Sir Terence Blackwell is at the bottom rung of society. Only Lady Felicity Seymour, who has no magic, no inheritance, and no prospects, may be willing to judge the man strictly on his own merits.

When family pressures push Lady Felicity into a terrible fate, she has only Sir Terence to turn to. As the two outcasts are propelled by circumstances beyond their control, they are forced to explore the unseen depths beneath society’s façade. And what they discover about each other is more real and more beautiful than they ever could have imagined…

"Simply delightful, imaginative, historically vigorous, and ripe for further adventures."—Publishers Weekly

"Delightful, refreshing, and unique."—Single Titles, 5 Stars

"Fabulously imaginative setting and charmingly original characters"—Chicago Tribune

Your new covers are gorgeous! Daisy was one of my favorite characters and she looks just like I imagined her (but of course that's because of your descriptions lol).Congrats on your new release(s).

Couple years back I received the original covered copy of Enchanting the Lady from a friend. So I had to pull it out to compare the two. I agree I like the couple with the dragonet (but then I'm a biiiiig dragonfanatic.) The other is nice with the head shot and castle but the new one represents magical.

Hi Gossupgurl! Thanks much!

Hi Theresa! Enchanting is good. ;}

Hi Raonaid! I agree. I loved the old cover...but love this one even more, since it truly captures the fantasy element and readers have a better idea of what they're buying at first glance.
