About the Book

Title: An Unlikely Match
Author: Sarah M. Eden
Release Date: October 2012
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Genre: Romantic Paranormal Historical Fiction
Received from the publisher for review.
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?

I just have to say it . . . Sarah M. Eden is probably my most favorite Covenant authors! With her quick-witted, sassy, and flirtatious characters set in the romantic Austen-esque time period, she could write about pretty much anything and I would still love it. And An Unlikely Match definitely lives up to the high standards Sarah has set.

I love that this story combined so many genres: romance, paranormal elements, and historical fiction. It had a sweet (and quite interesting) love story as well as a rich background of Welsh history. Though I already knew what to expect from Sarah's romantic historical fiction, it was fun to see her branching out into the paranormal genre as well.

And the ghost, Gwen, just happened to be my favorite character! It was probably quite a challenge to create a 400 year old character who isn't even human. But of course Sarah is so talented that Gwen turned out to be quite realistic no matter what you believe about ghosts and the afterlife. I especially liked that Gwen was still so strong-willed and feisty even after all the things that she had been through.

An Unlikely Match is everything I have come to expect from Sarah Eden - well written, well researched, romantic, fun, and highly entertaining!
