An Unlikely Match by Sarah M. Eden

An Unlikely Match by Sarah M. Eden

Summary from Goodreads:
The future has never looked brighter for once penniless Nickolas Pritchard. Now in possession 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 than Ty Mynydd, his ancestral home nestled in the untamed hills of Wales? Ideal, indeed ... except for the ghost. 

For nearly four hundred years, Gwen has walked the halls of the home in which she lived—and died a mysterious death. But despite centuries as the reigning force within her ancient residence, nothing prepares her for the charm and unexpected appeal of Englishman Nickolas. 

A deep and abiding affection grows between the two, tempered by the unbreakable barrier that separates them. They cannot possibly hope for a happily ever after. there can be no future between a man yet living and a woman long dead. 

But how can Nickolas possibly give Gwen up? And how can Gwen face an eternity without Nickolas?

Clean Regency Romance, Inter-library Loan

My Review:
This was an unusual Regency story for me.  There was a touch of paranormal with a ghost as one half of the main couple.  I had to let my imagination go a little more than I do with Sarah M. Eden's other Regency books.  I also felt the loneliness of the characters in this book.  There was a sad feeling throughout the book, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing.  It was a good story and I loved the writing.  

I really liked the Welch setting of this book.  It gave the story a different element and also there was a lot of humor related to English verses Welch culture.  I am sure I was butchering the words, but it was fun to read something a little different.

Warnings: Black magic 

I would let my 15 year old read this book.
