Summary

New York Times best-selling author Suzanne Enoch spins a Regency-era tale at Nimway Hall, in a book series centered on an estate where love and magic entwine to bring romance to all who dwell there.

A passionate, determined young lady trying to prove herself worthy of a magic-touched legacy and a steadfast gentleman looking for his own place in the world join forces to restore an abandoned estate to its former glory.

The moment Isabel de Rossi turns 18, she takes charge of Nimway Hall, which has stood empty for the past 10 years. Well-aware that all her female forebears found true love at Nimway, she can’t wait to discover her own destined match. Instead she’s faced with Adam Driscoll, the infuriatingly practical estate manager whose presence is a constant reminder that her own grandmother thinks she has no idea what she’s doing. 

Adam thought the recent offer of a position at Nimway Hall a godsend. After spending six years managing his elderly uncle’s estate he is facing either a dreary career in the army or the church. At Nimway his feet are on the ground, his hands in the earth, his mind on practical matters. 

The last complication he needs is a foreign-raised heiress intent on finding a magical orb, but Adam can’t help noticing that his strangely derailed repairs are suddenly on track, and that the clever, amusing mistress of the Hall is genuinely interested in improving her estate and the lives of her tenants. And he is beginning to find it hard to resist his simmering attraction....

Isabel though wonders if she isn’t worthy of becoming the property’s guardian. The famous orb - the artifact reputedly responsible for every love match made at Nimway Hall is nowhere to be found...until dreamy Lord Alton arrives and starts to pursue Isabel. The pesky orb suddenly appears, though it seems to have a preference for the strong and loyal Adam. 

For an unsophisticated young lady, the choice between a charming viscount and an interfering employee should be a simple one, but magic is a stubborn thing - and the heart is even more headstrong.

Not worth keeping

Silly story that is highly improbable plus a narrator with the most annoying drawl equals a disappointment.
