    *sighs* Another masterpiece from Stephanie. I'm having a hard time in life and when I realise it was available I went basically running for it. And I had a great time reading it and it helped me for a while so I could recharge my energies a little. Sweet and unstoppable.

    On a side note, I'm having a little trouble with accepting the other won't be written by her and to be honest I don't even know these other authors so you can say that I'm afraid I won't like it that much but I'm also looking forward to knowing them.

    I love Stephanie Laurens. That being said, she is the author of this book, but not the rest of the books in this series on Nimway Hall. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of them.

    Jacqueline Tregarth is the guardian of Nimway Hall. Richard Montague is the second son of a politically and socially powerful marquis. Escaping a rumored kidnap attempt in London, Montague finds himself lost in the woods outside Nimway Hall, and his horse is lame. He is offered rest at The Hall and while his horse is cared for, Montague falls into the daily routine of the Hall and the setup for the big market days. Would be suitors for Jacqueline’s hand make themselves known, some more persistent or more dastardly ( or both) than others.

    This is a Laurens love story. You know how it ends when you start the book. However, as both a stand alone book and as a setup for the future series, I found it thoroughly enjoyable.

    A little on the magic side and not her usual Regency style, this first in a series by multiple authors is endearing and well told. She prorcts the hall and herbpeople and lands A true suitor for ger hand must assist her instead of look for the usual selfish property rights of the time or merely her wealth and beauty. Enter our hero who is reluctant to get permanently involved, but he too comes under the magical spell of Nimway Hall. Delightful cast of characters and a plot with some tense moment

    I love the new series. It reminds me of Richard and Catrinia from Scandal's Bride. Where she is the guardian Lady of Vale.

    Richard was determined to avoid marriage escape London. Only to end up in woods by Nimway Hall the magical woods which snared him to meet Jacqueline the guardian of hall.

    Jacqueline always knew she would find her perfect partner when the time was right. Being the guardian of Hall and woods she knew her partner would have to be someone who understood she was the caretaker of Estate. She and females in line would always inherit the estate.

    Any man who became their spouse would be have to accept their rule of being the defender of guardian and the lands.

    This was beautifully written. A great story that introduces a little bit of the mystical.

    Jacqueline is a proper lady and the guardian of Nimway Hall; a beautiful estate fabled to have been built over Nimue, Merlin’s love and powerful sorceress.

    Richard is a well-to-do younger son escaping London and the eager young ladies interested in his wealth and power, but not necessarily himself.

    Richard and Jaqueline cross paths as he becomes lost in her woods and thus becomes a house guest.

    The storyline evolves providing intrigue, power play, and fleshing out who exactly Richard and Jaqueline are.

    I enjoyed the storyline and following the growth and relationship of the hero and heroin through the story.

    3.5 stars.

    This is a multi-author series penned by some of the most well-known historical romance writers around.

    This first book by Stephanie Laurens introduces Nimway Hall and one of the female guardians of the Hall, the surrounding woods and lands during the mid 1700s. The H/h are SL archetypes, unflappable, devoted to their duty and their sense of noblesse oblige.

The romance and their recognition of their connection to the Hall and each other is a slow-burn one, with a bit of a push by a mysterious orb, the woods and the nasty neighbor.

    All in all, a good start to the series.

    Lord Richard DeVries is fleeing the marriage-minded women of London when he stumbles into a woods on his way to Wells and is lost. Eventually, he and his lame horse make their way to Nimway Hall, the home of Jacqueline Tregarth. She is the guardian of the estate, supposedly the ancestral home of Nimue.

    The story mirrors one of Ms. Laurens other books, Scandal's Bride. Set in Georgian times, the language seemed a bit stilted to me, but the story was okay. The inevitable consummation of their love was somewhat purplish, but Ms. Lauren's books can sometimes flow that way. Not one of my favorites of her books, but still an okay read.

    really seriously?

    i am so very sorry.

    i really love stephanie laurens but come on.........

    1. really a short book

    2. if i'd known that she was not going to write the whole series, i might not have bought this.

    it took just a few hours to read.

    sometimes you have to wonder if it's the editors that are pressuring these writers to put things out faster?

    if your a fan and you have read the cynster and bastion club series and even the black cobra series or the buccaneer series and what QUALITY those books

    i am so very sorry.

    sometimes you have to wonder if it's the editors that are pressuring these writers to put things out faster?

    if your a fan and you have read the cynster and bastion club series and even the black cobra series or the buccaneer series and what QUALITY those books were and then wait 20 years for the next generation cynster books, and be honest they were not the quality and substance of her original books.

    this book kind of falls into that category too, being very short in length and lacking the substance of those other books

    and those other books were mass markets, these latest cynsters, and lady osbalstone's and this book were large paper back. meaning you paid more for them and got less.

    seriously if you have not read the original cynsters, or the bastion club or the new adventures quartet. read those, the quality, the substance, the length and then come back and read this less than 200 pages, and tell me you think this is equal in quality, substance and value as those others.

    i would hope that considering she is such a good author and has a substantial amount of publish works, that her editors are not pressuring her to produce smaller books, which they are charging more.

    i'm sorry, i really want to say how much i love stephanie laurens but to be honest, i am not sure i will be buying any of the other books in this series.

    if i buy another it will be the cavanaugh series.

    oh and another thing,

    what's with the abridged version of the book, in the beginning of the book,?

    a synopsis is one thing, but all those reviews and a complete book summary in the beginning?

    i felt like i read the book twice. sorry........

    but again, i do love stephanie laurens ......... just not as much as i used to.

    Jacqueline Tregarth is the Guardian of Nimway Hall. She is besieged by suitors but all have an eye for her property while having no understanding or interest in the special properties of her role or of Nimway Hall.

    Richard Devries is handsome and rich as Croesus and the natural target of matchmaking mamas and ambitious debutantes. When a particularly unscrupulous plot nearly sees him kidnapped to the altar, his friends assist him to get out of town. On his way to safety he is waylaid by Balesboro

    Jacqueline Tregarth is the Guardian of Nimway Hall. She is besieged by suitors but all have an eye for her property while having no understanding or interest in the special properties of her role or of Nimway Hall.

    Richard Devries is handsome and rich as Croesus and the natural target of matchmaking mamas and ambitious debutantes. When a particularly unscrupulous plot nearly sees him kidnapped to the altar, his friends assist him to get out of town. On his way to safety he is waylaid by Balesboro Wood itself and finds himself accepting Jacqueline's hospitality at Nimway Hall. He immediately feels at home and develops a partnership with Jacqueline who appreciates a man who doesn't think she needs telling!

    But Richard is determined to leave and Jacqueline is unaware that there are dark forces determined to take advantage of her.

    I am a big fan of Stephanie Laurens but I found this disappointing. It seemed to me to be a retelling of Richard and Catriona's story without the excellent interplay of the two main characters. Maybe because Richard is a bit clueless? It was also quite short. It is the first of a series but the rest are written by other authors.
