15830812It Isn’t every day that an impoverished young gentleman inherits a sizable fortune and an estate. Nickolas Pritchard, not only mpoverished and young but a gentleman as well, felt his luck acutely the day just such a remarkable inheritance fell upon him.

The future has never looked brighter for once penniless Nickolas Pritchard. Now in ┬ápossession of an unforeseen legacy from a distant cousin, he can finally woo the exquisite Miss Castleton, belle of the London Season. What better setting for matchmaking that Ty Mynydd, his ancestral home nestled in the untamed hills of Wales? Ideal indeed… Except for the ghost…

She took a quick assessing look around the bed chamber Just enough chaos to seize the attention necessary without doing lasting damage. Perfect. Now to bring her unlooked for guest to an awareness of the situation. Rolling her eyes at the absurdity of it all, Gwen floated high enough to hover just above the foot of the bed. The mattress had, of course, been replaced countless times since she had slept in it. Considering ghosts aren’t able to do such mundane things as lie down and relax into a feather bed, it had seemed a rather pointless endeavor by the countless masters and mistresses of the house. Still, Gwen found herself sometimes wondering if it was a comfortable bed. She longed to know for herself, to feel the softness of a down-filled Mattress, the warmth a blanket pulled up to one’s neck on a chill night. But ghosts don’t feel things. Not physically. She still felt emotions: frustration, amusement, loneliness. Mostly loneliness. Hers was a rather lopsided situation. She couldn’t lie down on her own bed, but she could empty her bedchamber. And so what came next was absolutely imperative even if Gwen disliked doing it.

It was a shriek worthy of any Gothic heroine from the overactive imaginations of the Minerva Press authors. Nicolas was out of bed and on his feet before the echo of it had begun to fade.

Nickolas invites the Castleton family to come visit his new estate, not believing the stories told him of the resident ghost Gwen. When Miss Castleton is give Gwen’s bedroom, Gwen is determined to drive her out. Miss Castleton sees her and believes, but Nickolas still doesn’t believe she is real until she shows herself to him later that day in the drawing room. Thus begins an unlikely friendship between a four hundred year old ghost and a gentleman.

I guess I’m just a sucker for impossible love stories. I loved this book. It is one of the best I’ve read for along time in this genre. Sarah M. Eden is and amazingSarah+Eden+series Author. Everything I’ve read of hers is really good. I would recommend all her books to the Romantic at heart. Here are a few titles of hers that I like, Kiss of a Stranger, Courting Miss Lancaster, Seeking Persephone, Drops of Gold, and Longing for Home. She has more books I haven’t read yet but plan too. Her books are clean, profound, and heart warming.historical romanceCover_FRONT_Kiss-of-a-Stranger1870-london-season-cartoon
