Damsel Under Stress book. In Damsel Under Stress, Katie’s beset by a Fairy Godmother. To-do: Stop the bad guys. Shanna Swendson has created characters that I truly care about - I won't give up on them. Katie’s not really sure why Ethelinda chose to come help her now that she finally has her dream boyfriend, and she’s not sure how to make Ethelinda go away because the help is often life-threatening and never romantic.

Author : Shanna Swendson. Now Katie and Owen must work side by side (but alas, not cheek to cheek) to thwart the villains’ plans. But just when it looks like Katie has found her prince, in pops her inept fairy godmother, Ethelinda, to throw a wand into the works. Ethelinda’s timing couldn’t be worse. Braving sorceresses, subway-dwelling dragons, lovelorn frog princes, and even the dreaded trip to meet Owen’s parents at Christmas, Katie and her beau are in a battle to beat Idris at his own sinister game.

Shanna Swendson is an American author of romance novels and chick lit. She has also written under the pseudonym Samantha Carter. Swendson is perhaps best known for the "Katie Chandler" series of novels, beginning with the 2005 publication of Enchanted, Inc. Although Swendson majored in broadcast news at the University of Texas at Austin, she enrolled in a wide variety of courses that she thought could help her become a successful novelist.

To-do: Stop the bad guys. Find the perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve. At last, Owen Palmer, the dreamboat wizard at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, In. has conjured up the courage to get Katie Chandler under the mistletoe at the office holiday party. Keep these Katie Chandler books coming! The characters (even the bad guys) are well written. I loved including the fairy godmother in this book. She gave the story quite a bit of comic relief. The relationship between Katie and Owen developed slowly and kept developing in spite of the interruptions and strange dates. Don't let this book be the end of Katie! 0. Report.

To-do: Stop the bad guys. Rescue the wizard. Find the perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve. At last, Owen Palmer, the dreamboat wizard at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., has conjured up the courage to get Katie Chandler under the mistletoe at the office holiday party. But just when it looks like Katie has found her prince, in pops her inept fairy godmother, Ethelinda, to throw a wand into the works. Ethelinda’s timing couldn’t be worse. A plot hatched by MSI’s rogue ex-employees, Idris and his evil fairy gal pal Ari, threatens to expose the company’s secrets–and the very existence of magic itself. Even worse, it could also mean the end of Katie’s happily-ever-after. Now Katie and Owen must work side by side (but alas, not cheek to cheek) to thwart the villains’ plans. Braving black-magic-wielding sorceresses, subway-dwelling dragons, lovelorn frog princes, and even the dreaded trip to meet Owen’s parents at Christmas, Katie and her beau are in a battle to beat Idris at his own sinister game. All mischief and matters of the heart will come to a head at a big New Year’s Eve gala, when the crystal ball will drop, champagne will pour, and Katie will find herself truly spellbound.Praise for Shanna Swendson’s Once Upon Stilettos“Magical and totally delightful . . . [a] quirky, lighthearted romance.”–freshfiction.com“A fast and funny read. Chicklit meets urban fantasy.”–Mary Jo Putney, author of The Marriage Spell

While like the others this book has its slow moments, it holds your attention to want to keep reading. It took me a little longer to get through this one because it did seem to be falling under the same formula as the previous, just with a fairy godmother added, but by the end I want to continue on again because once again the author shocked me. While some of the things about it seem very "young" written the author has a familiar and friendly voice that makes you want to keep coming back

This was another story where Katie kept everyone in the dark about what was going on and making everything worse. It didn't work before but without this type of story line this author wouldn't be able to give you as long of a story. This type of page filler over and over again is frustrating. The plot was good and the characters have grown quite a bit. If the author could stick to a good story and get rid of the page fill this would be so much better.

This is the third book in this series and it does not fail to disappoint. This time, however, Katie's inept fairy godmother decides she needs to intervene and speed things along (or destroy things entirely) between Katie and her super hot boyfriend Owen, the wizard extraordinaire. Add in one irate fairy who is literally trapped inside Katie's brain, roommates who try to do an intervention on Katie's behalf (thinking she's on drugs) and some dragons who desperately want to play fetch, and you have one really fun story. This is a clean series, with no sex (so far) and minimal cussing. It is a well written series and some lighthearted, tasty brain candy. I can't wait to start on the fourth book tonight...!

These books are really entertaining! This is an easy read and I enjoy the characters. The stories are so fun and how everything is set up in our world. I just love it! Someone in another review mentioned Harry Potter all grown up... Definitely! I couldn't have said it any better than that. And so fun and entertaining! Just love these books and looking forward to more!

I adore this series! Katie and Enchanted Inc. (esp Owen Palmer!) are a hoot! Book four was full of laughs and anticipation. Katie's Fairy god-mother was a stitch as she continued to try to give Katie the Happily Ever After that she claimed to have given to Cinderella, et all. You'll have to read for yourself how it turned out! Oh! ... and those chauffeurs! I knew there was something about the hired drivers in the big cities!!! :o) They were great!!!! I have to admit I was sorely disappointed at this book's ending until I read on the internet that book 4 will be out in January! I just couldn't see Shaunna ending the series like that! Now I am all excited and can't wait to see what will happen next. This series is just as fun to anticipate as Harry Potter! ... but you get many more laughs and alot of romance!! So.... if you haven't read "book 3" yet.... what are you waiting for???? Hurry up and get your copy! It's a really fun read!!!

I've read (and given away) all of Shanna Swendson's books about Katie Chandler, and I keep buying new copies and re-reading them. They are the tales of a young woman from Texas trying to make her way in New York City, without any particular advantage to give her success...or so she thinks, until the day she's recruited to join a VERY UNUSUAL corporation, whose CEO is Merlin. Yes, that Merlin. In her world, there are the magically gifted, the magically susceptible who don't notice magic, and, extremely rarely, the magically immune. Katie is an immune, which means she has the magical equivalent of invulnerability and x-ray eyes. Oh, and did I mention the shy-but-rich-and-hunky research wizard??
These books are fluff, true, but highly imaginative and entertaining fluff. I want to live in Katie's universe! Oh - wait, maybe I do. Darn.

Damsel under Stress picks up with the action right after the ending of Book #2. Idris is still out there threatening MSI ... but what exactly is his plan this time?

Owen and Katie get some "help" in the romance department from their own fairy godmother. Katie also gets to meet Owen's foster parents, which introduces a little mystery there as well, sure to be addressed in later installments of the series.

The series isn't quite as fresh, and the problems here not quite as interesting as in the first 2, but it's still a fun read. I love seeing Katie's friendships with her roommates expand and develop, and how they are getting sucked into Katie's world.

I'm looking forward to Book #4 ... when is it coming out?
I have enjoyed all the books in the Enchanted, Inc. series by Shanna Swendson. This light-hearted, funny series is a refreshing change from so many of the sex-heavy paranormal romances out there. When I want a break from all the sex, this is one of the books I turn to. If all you're looking for is a book/series with a lot of sex and a little bit of plot then this isn't for you. But if you're looking for a sweet, funny story with faeries, wizards and witches not to mention an immune who always saves the day, then this IS the book for you.
