Charming Artemis Blog Review and Giveaway

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

Charlie Jonquil is mild-mannered and kind—except when it comes to his one true adversary, Artemis Lancaster. Though Charlie has a brilliant mind for mathematics, Artemis poses a problem he can’t seem to comprehend: how can one be so lovely and so infuriating? A party in London brings him into the company of the maddening young lady, and it is clear that Charlie’s disdain is mutual. But when an unfortunate incident between the pair involving Charlie’s jacket and a glass of raspberry shrub leads to scandal, the sworn enemies are left with only two options: be ruined or be married.

So it is that Artemis finds herself in a most outrageous predicament: she must wed a gentleman she’s hated for years—and she pledges to avoid him at all costs. But it is only when they enter into this mockery of a marriage that Charlie and Artemis learn things are not as simple as they once appeared. As their tentative ceasefire leads to friendship, it seems their marriage born of desperation might lead them to a love that was destined to be.

Charming Artemis is the final book to close off two series by Sarah Eden - the Jonquil Family and Lancaster Family Series. Fans have waited for this book for a long time. The story of Artemis and Charlie ties the two series together well. I enjoyed seeing Artemis and Charlie's story play out and how their romance developed. The romance was sweet and there were tender moments throughout the book.  There were also moments that felt forced as the author tried to also tie the book to a third series. I liked how Charming Artemis echoed the first books of each of the series -  marriage not initially for love like in Seeking Persephone and foes falling in love like in Friends and Foes I thought that was well done and tied the two series together well. Artemis and Charlie are likable characters and it was fun to read their banter and development. It's a quick and entertaining read. If you're a fan of the series, I would suggest reading this to complete the series. The series as a whole was well planned out. The author was able to manage a vast number of characters, their relationships and stories. I felt like both series came together in this final book.
