Publisher Description

In this romantic fantasy of manners from New York Times bestselling author Allison Saft, a magical dressmaker commissioned for a royal wedding finds herself embroiled in scandal when a gossip columnist draws attention to her undeniable chemistry with the groom.

Niamh Ó Conchobhair has never let herself long for more. The magic in her blood that lets her stitch emotions and memories into fabric is the same magic that will eventually kill her. Determined to spend the little time she has left guaranteeing a better life for her family, Niamh jumps at the chance to design the wardrobe for a royal wedding in the neighboring kingdom of Avaland.

But Avaland is far from the fairytale that she imagined. While young nobles attend candlelit balls and elegant garden parties, unrest brews amid the working class. The groom himself, Kit Carmine, is prickly, abrasive, and begrudgingly being dragged to the altar as a political pawn. But when Niamh and Kit grow closer, an unlikely friendship blossoms into something more—until an anonymous gossip columnist starts buzzing about their chemistry, promising to leave them alone only if Niamh helps to uncover the royal family’s secrets. The rot at the heart of Avaland runs deep, but exposing it could risk a future she never let herself dream of, and a love she never thought possible.

Transporting readers to a Regency England-inspired fantasy world, A Fragile Enchantment is a sweeping romance threaded with intrigue, unforgettable characters, and a love story for the ages.

A delightful magical regency romance

This book sang to my inner child that drew fashion designs during school. I loved the universe and the world that Saft created. I was skeptical initially, as I do not normally read regency era works. However, it worked brilliantly for me in "A Fragile Enchantment". I believe this is in part due to the wonderful fantasy world that has been built.
I want Saft to write more books in this world, exploring the universe more in-depth.

I also loved the book because of the lead, Niamh. There is something so special about a protagonist who is not over powered. She has her own strength and power in her ability to wield magic into clothes. She is relatable and lovely. She is protagonist that you do not grow tired of.

I think that this book has something for everyone: a swoon-worthy and forbidden romance, a whimsical fantasy system, a regency setting, queer and chronic-illness representation, and a very engaging plot!
