New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins writes a ravishing addition to an exciting series of romances touched by magic as old as time. A properly raised young lady rebels against the restrictions of both society and family when she meets a dark, dangerous, and wildly passionate man as they both fight to resist their forbidden love ... and the seductive pull of an ancient magic. Miss Charlotte Harrington knows what’s expected of her. Properly raised and newly reminded of her duties after the unexpected death of her far-more-perfect twin sister, Charlotte is resigned to wedding the son of a near neighboring land owner and live a sedate and proper, respectable life. But Charlotte’s high spirits will not be contained and she yearns deeply for a life of adventure, excitement, and love. When wild and untamed Marco di Rossi arrives at Nimway Hall, commissioned to carve a masterpiece for the family home, he finds himself instantly drawn to the far-from-subdued Charlotte. Despite the potential ruin to his own brilliant career, he cannot resist her spirit and beauty, nor the call of the deep, wild magic that resides within a mysterious and magical orb hidden deep in the walls of the ancient house of Nimway... A historical novel of 57,000 words interweaving romance, mystery, and magic. Praise for the works of Karen Hawkins “Sparkling, witty repartee and heart-tugging emotions...pure, unadulterated Hawkins.” RT Book Reviews, 4 1⁄2 star TOP PICK “Completely captivating, wonderfully written, and ripe with romance with a legend so captivating you’ll believe every word!” Romance Junkies “Karen Hawkins delivers warmth, humor, romance, and a touch of heartache...A great story to curl up with on cold winter’s eve.” Joyfully Reviewed

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens brings you the opening story in a series of romances touched by magic as old as time. A gentleman fleeing the bonds of loveless marriage and a lady in desperate need of a champion join forces to defend an ancient legacy. Jacqueline Tregarth, lady and guardian of Nimway Hall, is devoted to protecting her people, the Hall, the estate's wood, and its farms. She yearns for a husband to help her meet the challenges, but all those seeking her hand are interested only in controlling her lands. With the estate's stream running dry and summer looming, she sets men digging to reopen an old spring. Her workers discover a dirt-encrusted ornament buried at the spot; once removed, water flows and fills the old lake-and Jacqueline realizes the ornament is some kind of ancient orb. Meanwhile, Lord Richard Devries, overly-eligible darling of the ton, fights free of kidnappers seeking to force him to offer for some lady's hand. But on escaping into the countryside, he gets lost in Balesboro Wood and stumbles on a covert scheme to divert a stream. Later, he finds his way to Nimway Hall, where the household is celebrating a spring running again. Richard is welcomed and meets the fascinating Miss Tregarth. That his youthful hostess is disinclined to bat her lashes at him piques his interest, yet after his recent experiences, he feels safe in her company-for him, an unusual and comforting experience. Indeed, everything about Nimway Hall is calming and soothing. Then Richard makes the connection between what he saw in the wood and the Hall's recent water shortage and leads Jacqueline and her men to the diversion in the wood. Subsequently, he learns of the various men pursuing Jacqueline, and recognizes the danger to her and to the Hall. Although self-protective instinct presses him to travel on, his lamed horse has yet to recover, and despite all inner warnings, Richard feels compelled to step into the role of a supportive protector. Aided and abetted by the household, the estate community, Balesboro Wood, and the ancient orb, propinquity works its magic, seducing Richard with a role into which he and his talents fit perfectly, and tempting Jacqueline to hope that her champion has finally found his way to her side. If the tales told of those snared by Balesboro Wood and sent to the Hall are true, then... Yet true love never runs smoothly, and both Richard and Jacqueline must search within, embrace their destinies, and find the courage to seize their heart's one true desire-all just in time to foil a dastardly plan that would wreck all they and the Hall's people hold dear. First in series. A historical novel of 73,000 words interweaving romance, mystery, and magic. Praise for the works of Stephanie Laurens "Stephanie Laurens' heroines are marvelous tributes to Georgette Heyer: feisty and strong." Cathy Kelly "Stephanie Laurens never fails to entertain and charm her readers with vibrant plots, snappy dialogue, and unforgettable characters." Historical Romance Reviews "Stephanie Laurens plays into readers' fantasies like a master and claims their hearts time and again." Romantic Times Magazine

#1 New York Times Bestselling author Victoria Alexander takes us back to Nimway Hall, where magic is as old as time and love is where you least expect it. . . She's given up on love and magic. He's going to change her mind. Alexandra Hayden, the current Guardian of Nimway Hall, is having a very bad day. Well, a very bad year. Or two. Her third fiancé swindled her out of Nimway's reserve funds, she's spent her dowry to help her tenants, and everything on the estate is in need of repair. Even Nimway Hall itself is starting to look a bit shabby. Worse, legendary Nimway magic seems to have vanished. All her fault of course: She simply isn't the guardian she should be. Robert Curtis is one of America's wealthiest young captains of industry. Now he finds he's inherited a title and an estate. But Brynmore Manor is long-abandoned and barely standing. It's not at all what Robert hoped to use for business and family holidays and not remotely what he wanted. What's a rich American viscount to do? Buy the estate next door, of course-Nimway. The last thing Alex needs is an arrogant American neighbor. What she needs is money-and fast. To further his acceptance in London society and his business interests, Robert could use a well-connected wife. A marriage of convenience will benefit them both. But marriage is not at all the practical, sensible arrangement they expected. With their annoying attraction and strangely vivid dreams of each other, this marriage is anything but convenient. And with every passing day, and every sleepless night, the terms they agreed to are less and less important. Still, it's going to take a push from Nimway magic to make them finally realize that love is the greatest enchantment of all.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens concludes the tales of the Cavanaugh siblings with the riveting story of the youngest brother and his search for a family of his own. The scion of a noble house brought low by a storm and the lady who nurses him back to health strive to unravel a web of deception that threatens her family and forces them to fight for what they hold most dear—family, each other, and love. Lord Godfrey Cavanaugh has no thoughts of marrying as he drives into North Yorkshire on a plum commission for the National Gallery to authenticate a Renaissance painting the gallery wishes to purchase. Then a snow storm sweeps in, and Godfrey barely manages to haul himself, his groom, and his horses to their destination. Elinor Hinckley, eldest daughter of Hinckley Hall, stalwart defender of the family, right arm to her invalid father, and established spinster knows full well how much her family has riding on the sale of the painting and throws herself into nursing the initially delirious gentleman who holds her family’s future in his hands. But Godfrey proves to be a far from easy patient. Through Ellie’s and her siblings’ efforts to keep him entertained and abed, Godfrey grows to know the family, appreciating and, ultimately, being drawn into family life of a sort he’s never known. Eventually, to everyone’s relief, he recovers sufficiently to assess the painting—only to discover that nothing, but nothing, is as it seems. Someone has plans, someone other than the Hinckleys, but who is pulling the strings is a mystery that Godfrey and Ellie find near-impossible to solve. Every suspect proves to have perfectly understandable, albeit hidden reasons for their behavior, and Godfrey and Ellie remain baffled. Until the villain, panicked by their inquiries, strikes—directly at them—and forces them both to acknowledge what has grown to be the most important thing in their lives. Both are natural defenders of the weak and neither will give up. Together they battle to save not just themselves, not just her family, but their futures. Hers, his, and theirs. A classical historical romance set in North Yorkshire. Fourth and final novel in The Cavanaughs—a full-length historical romance of 90,000 words.
