Kathryne Kennedy's Enchanting the Beast is an enjoyable book with an imaginative setting and some good characters.
When Lady Philomena, a ghost hunter, is tasked by a werewolf
baron to prove to his brother than he isn't being haunted, she decides to try and help the brother. Sir Nicodemus Wulfson, the werewolf, doesn't believe in ghosts and thinks that Philomena is probably a charlatan, but he also finds her
When Phil arrives at Grimspell Castle, she discovers something strange going on with the ghosts - plus brother Royden is looking seriously ill. Her attempts to investigate are complicated by the mutual interest between her and Nico, and by local suspicion that Nico is a murderer. When another woman dies, and when Phil finds that all clues to the problems with the ghosts lead to the underground tunnels at Grimspell, she must persuade Nico to let her investigate further.
The romance between Phil and Nico is smooth and well-written. Kennedy didn't feel it necessary to put awkward plot devices in to keep them apart, or Big Misunderstandings; they just get on with getting to know each other. It's also unusual to have such a large age gap (Phil is 13 years older than Nico).
The subplot of the murdering wolf is interesting, and I didn't guess at the cause. All in all, this
is a good read set in a semi-magical Regency world.
