Entranced Beloved from author Ann Marie Ruby is the fifth book in the Kasteel Vrederic series, and I just finished reading it.
“Time passes by without any notice yet it leaves behind memories. Those memories written within the pages of a diary become immortal even beyond human lives which are sadly mortal.”Ann Marie Ruby, Entranced Beloved
This has been a series I have enjoyed immensely, and one that drew me in quickly. There is a sixth book being released soon, and I’m looking very forward to it.

About Entranced Beloved
The passionate love story of Margriete “Rietje” Jacobus Peters and the honorable knight Sir Alexander van der Bijl is being erased like an enchanted diary. Dr. Jacobus Vrederic van Phillip, the reincarnated form of the original diarist Jacobus van Vrederic, discovers the pages of his ancestor’s diary disappearing. With the empty pages, he knows all of the inhabitants of Vows From The Beyond too will be erased.
The twenty-first-century descendants of Rietje and Sir Alexander must now find a way to travel time to save their ancestors. They must travel back in time to the Dutch Eighty Years’ War.
Find out how the paranormal family of Kasteel Vrederic must find a way to travel time, even though they may have to face death to travel time. Their only saving grace are the paranormal spirits of Kasteel Vrederic, the tunnel of light, and the dream psychic who will be their only guide.
Another paranormal, magical, historical story, the romantic diary of Rietje and Sir Alexander will be written if only the inhabitants of Vows From The Beyond can travel time to save the inhabitants of I Shall Never Let You Go. All takes place in the paranormal home, Kasteel Vrederic.
Thoughts on Entranced Beloved
As I read each and every book in this series so far, I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve been inspired and hopeful, I’ve reflected on my own experiences and relationships. My favorite recurring themes in Ann Marie’s books are faith, love, and persistence. To never give up on dreams or love. Both will always find a way.
Love Never Dies
Love is found
Love only grows
From inward to outward.
No, you can’t touch it,
Yet you can feel it.
You can’t hear it,
Unless you hear
The breathing of
The one you love.
Yet even when the heartbeats
Of the one you love
Are no more,
You heart does not stop beating
For your one true beloved,
For it is true,
Even when your heart beats no more,
Love lives on eternally and evermore as dear,
All lovers know this today and forever,
Love Never DiesAnn Marie Ruby, Entranced Beloved
Final Thoughts on Entranced Beloved
The entire Kasteel Vrederic series has been simply amazing. Because it isn’t your typical romance story. It is a series that shows us love isn’t just a lover. Love is family, love is memories, love doesn’t fade when someone dies.
Sweet Darling Riejte
Falling in love
Means you invite sorrows.
This game of love
Is made out of tears.
When you fall in love, you are there.
Yet when we become separated,
Love still lives
Through pain and sorrow
Of being separated.
Love only grows old.
Even though humans
Depart this Earth,
Love lives on eternally.
Through the bond
Of a beloved child
And her beloved family members,
The bond becomes immortal
Just like your love and our love
In union has created our family,
The family of Kasteel Vrederic,
Where you and all of us
Live within the same walls,
Yet in different time periods.
Yet remember my sweet child,
Just feel us over there
As we feel you over here.
Through our home,
Our Kasteel Vrederic,
We shall always be there for you, our
Sweet Darling Rietje.Ann Marie Ruby, Entranced Beloved
There is a sixth book in this series being released soon, and I am anxiously awaiting it so I can order it immediately and read it. Until then, I will continue to read Ann Marie’s other books and catch up on all of her writing.
Reading everything Ann Marie Ruby has written has become a goal of mine, because her writing leaves an impression, not just on my mind, but on my soul.
Over the last few years I’ve returned to read Ann Marie’s books over again, and this is a series that I will certainly return to as well. Whenever I feel discouraged or even just grumpy, I know I can go and visit Kasteel Vrederic and enjoy love, family, and good people. Her books inspire me and lift my mood every single time I pick one up.

the book sounds very fun and entertaining and it totally fits the ‘profile’ I use for my running books. I will start on the series as soon as I am cleared to run again (hopefully there is an audiobook for this series)
