One of Wellington's most respected officers, Jack, Lord Frayne, successfully hides his talent for sorcery from his peers, until a near fatal injury leads him to Abigail Barton, a skilled wizard whose price for saving his life is his hand in marriage. Reprint.
Set in an alternate 18th century where magic is commonplace but class issues are as all-consuming as ever, THE MARRIAGE SPELL follows the tumultuous relationship between Officer Jack Langdon, a well-educated cavalryman, and Abigail Barton, a talented healer with paranormal powers. In a world where wizardry is seen as low-class, Jack has been brought up to despise magic, as befits a person of his rank and station. However, when he suffers a terrible accident and breaks his neck, he finds himself saved by Abigail's supernatural talents. Her price for his life, however, is a high one: his hand in marriage. Predictably, their marriage gets off to a rocky start, but they soon discover things about themselves and each other that they never dreamed possible in this refreshing hybrid of fantasy and Regency-era romance.
