"Putney skillfully, cleverly, and beautifully combines the paranormal with the romantic...pure enchantment."
-- 4 1/2 stars Kathe Robin, Romantic Times Book Reviews
One of Wellington’s most respected officers, Jack Langdon, Lord Frayne, takes the honor of his ancient family very seriously. He also hides a shameful secret: a talent for sorcery he has been raised to suppress—and openly reject.
But after a grave injury lands Jack at death’s door, his only chance to live is Abigail Barton, a skilled healer and the daughter of a nearby baronet. Her price: his hand in marriage. However, it isn’t long before Jack feels an irresistible attraction to his forthright new wife, a desire as intense as the reawakening magical abilities he can no longer deny.
A spell powerful enough to save Lord Frayne was a great risk, so Abby had asked a high price in return. Though she is drawn to her reluctant husband’s surprising sensitivity and kindness, Abby knows all too well his distaste for magic. Once she has Jack’s name and the child she has always longed for, she is determined to live apart from him so he can preserve his reputation—and she can stay true to herself and her gifts.
But neither Abby nor Jack reckon on the deep, long-simmering passions between them as they challenge each other’s extraordinary powers and deepest desires for a love that may cost them all they cherish most.

The Marriage Spell
"I savored every word of her beautiful prose and can't wait for the next book in the series. At her best, no one can top Putney when it comes to depicting the emotions her characters feel, and she is at the top of her game here - this is the MJP of the Fallen Angels series and The Rake. I loved this book - simply loved it!"

"Mary Jo Putney is a master storyteller, and once again her talent is set ablaze in this magical, historical romance. You will become enthralled in this wonderful tale as the characters come alive and the plot plays out. Evil, magic, and sorcery turns this historical romance into an entertaining read. Then, adding fast paced adventure and sensual romance, you have a book you cannot put down. Another great read, by another great author."
