The Legend of Nimway Hall 1750: Jacqueline Reviews

  • Leyla Caldwell

    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.

    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

    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.

    The Legend of Nimway Hall 1750: Jacqueline by Stephanie Laurens is the first book in an unusual series. The series is about a place in Great Britain called Nimway Hall. Each book is about a different generation and written by a different author. Luckily I fell into the first one of the series first, so I can read them in order!

    Jacqueline is the lady of Nimway Hall. The land and house are passed down through the female line - unusual for the time. There seems to be legends and old wives tales told about the woods and the land. The hall only prospers when the land is taken care of by the lady of the hall. Jacqueline watches her land with love, however the stream that runs through the property and is depended on by many has slowed to a trickle. They have found another source of water and found an unusual orb while digging.

    Richard Devries was cutting across country heading toward his uncle’s house. He is tired of the fortune hunters mamas out to force him into marriage with their daughters. However, he managed to get lost. He runs across two men who seemed to be discussing how they diverted the stream from the neighbors. Richard follows the stream and finds Nimway Hall.

    Both Jacqueline and Richard end up spending a number of day together and find they have chemistry. Richard has no problem letting Jacqueline take the lead with her people. Jacqueline had no problem with Richard helping her avoid the various suitors vying for her hand. He solves the stream problem and together they resolve the question of the orb (sort of) and the reason behind the stream blockage.

    But there is more at stake. Are Jacqueline and Richard meant to be together? I enjoyed the storyline and did not mind the mystery, magic and romance all woven together. I did download the next book and look forward to continuing the series. The Legend of Nimway Hall 1750: Jacqueline was a good read.

    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.

  • Sharlene

    Both the hero & heroine had been pursued for their wealth and/or property & both were marriage shy and untrusting. The legendary orb worked it's magic to bring them together. Although the romance happened over a short period of time, it was a believable friends to lovers romance. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

    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

    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.

    I found this a likeable read and could have been a bit shorter.
