Review: Enthrall (Whispers from the Bayou, #4). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Enthrall by Sandra R. Neeley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vampires are often irresistibly sexy, powerful and misunderstood. Enthrall is all of those, and more. Being the leader of Whispers — a community of paranormals hidden deep within the south Louisiana swamps — is a difficult and lonely existence. He’s waited centuries to find his love, his mate. Then finally, when he’s all but given up, she’s there. Intelligent, beautiful and independent, she’s all he ever dreamed she’d be. He’s determined to sway her plans for the future, ensure that he’s the focus. There are just a couple of small problems. She has no idea he’s not human. And she’s dying, but she doesn’t even know it.


Felicity is an attorney at the top of her game. She’s fought her way to the top of a male-dominated profession and is proud to have finally achieved all her dreams. Along with that comes an executorship over Clara’s House — a shelter for women in need. She shares that position with the most alluring man she’s ever met. Despite her attempts to focus on her career, he haunts her dreams, steals her attention from anything other than himself. She’s decided she can have both. Until one evening she watches him from afar as he disappears before her eyes. He’s got secrets, and now she’s determined to find out what they are.


Felicity and Enthrall are undeniably drawn to one another. But still Enthrall hesitates to reveal himself to the tall, blonde beauty that holds his heart in the palm of her hands. His own humanity was stolen from him long ago, and he refuses to subject his mate to the same brutality. He must win her over, be sure that she loves him before he reveals himself to her and offers her forever at his side. The problem is, he’s running out of time. If he doesn’t claim her soon, it may be too late. Little does he know, forces are at work against them. All choices, and any chance at a future may be taken away from them. Can they survive the threats that surface unexpectedly from the shadows? Will forgiveness heal or resentment taint what could be the only thing either of them ever truly needed?

The heroine: Felicity – she is a lawyer in the early 1900’s in Philadelphia. She came from a wealthy family which is why she was able to get her law degree in a time when most women couldn’t. However, being a woman she was stuck working at a law firm and was treated as a glorified assistant despite the fact that she was smarter and knew the law better than anyone else at the firm.

The Hero: Enthrall – a vampire and the leader of the Whispers, a community of supernatural beings hidden deep in the Louisiana bayou that is hidden with magical glamour and is a sanctuary for all kinds of supernatural creatures. He was once an attorney and recently came to Philadelphia with Carolena from Carnage after her father died, to deal with her estate. That is when he met Felicity whom he knew at once was his fated mate that he had been waiting centuries to find.

The Story: Felicity is tasked with helping set up a home for women and children in need in the mansion where Carolena had grown up. She is happy to be working with Enthrall whom she was attracted to at first glance. Little does she know that the persistent cough she has been plagued with for a while is consumption.

I have been loving this series and Enthrall was such a great guy in both the previous two books that I couldn’t wait for his story. Like the Heroes in the first two books, Enthrall had been lonely for a very long time and had nearly given up hope of ever finding a mate. Only to find her and she is dying.

Enthrall was turned vampire against his will and doesn’t want to do that to Felicity since it had made him hate his maker, so he needs time to get to know Felicity, make her fall in love with him and then tell her what he is so she can decide on her own if she wants to be turned.

I like this series because they focus as much on the side storylines as on the romance and there is always so much happening in this world. There is some stuff about the dragon tree and Lily, who is the daughter of Carolena and Carnage but also has some sort of past life and a connection to both Lore and the Dragon. We also find out much more about Enthrall and how he became a vampire.
