Lady Caroline Alton is young, beautiful and in London for her first season. She is excited about her first foray into society, but family secrets seemed to be piling up around Caroline more and more each day. She thought she might discover the great secret in her own life one day, except when she did, she had a feeling that it just might change everything. When she meets Lord Thomas Steele at her home in London, she is immediately intrigued by the handsome, dashing young barrister, who is a friend of her father. Each time she sees him, she becomes more and more aware that he, too, is deeply involved in the secrets that surround her, and she sets out to prove to him that she has the courage to face whatever it is, and to stand beside him as he confronts the evil that threatens him.

If the battle is lost, it will leave Regency England vulnerable to hell on earth. And yet in the middle of the fray, two souls try to find their way both to the light and to each other before the darkness destroys whatever happiness they may find.… Can love truly conquer all, or will evil consume them both?
Enthralled is a debut novel by Elizabeth Jordan. It is a clean and sweet historical regency romance novel of approximately 62,000 words. No cheating, no cliffhangers and a guaranteed happily ever after.
I love paranormal romance books but I am not a huge historical romance fan, I really have to be in the mood to read one. Enthralled combines both paranormal and historical romance and I will be honest, I liked it I just didn’t love it. I had a hard time connecting with the characters but I felt the premise of the book was interesting enough to continue reading. The historical aspect though is what really kept me from really getting into the story between Lady Caroline and Lord Thomas. I do think those who like historical romances will enjoy this a lot more than I did.
“This reader was absolutely enthralled by Elizabeth Jordan’s story! This page-turner reminded me of the Gothic romances my mom and I loved so dearly. Highly recommend!” - Naughty V
“I really loved this story. It was like one of the old classic "Hammer House of Horror" vampire movies. Lots of seductive manipulation from our evil ones, and wooden stakes and crosses flying from our heroes. Put that together with an historical setting and I was totally hooked. I couldn't put it down, and can't wait for the next in the series.” - Petula
