Intuition: A Fantasy Austen Retelling

A man does not recover from such a devotion to such a woman. He ought not; he does not.

As a spinster daughter of a wealthy landowner, Evaine Elloch is a disappointment to her family. She has weak magic, little beauty, and no romantic prospects. When her father’s spend-thrift ways force the family to rent out their home and move to Bath, it opens a door to both possibility and dread, for the man Evaine loved seven years ago steps back into her life. 

Now a wealthy mage captain, Balan Wynterval believes he has no interest in the quiet and plain Evaine who refused his marriage proposal when he was but a poor lieutenant.  Yet, as they are thrown together by circumstance, he struggles to ignore the attraction he feels for her. 

When an evil mage threatens the Elloch family, Evaine turns to Balan for help. Will he be able to overcome his pride, or will he also fall prey to the Mage’s magical influence and lose Evaine forever?

This magical retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion will delight and thrill fans of Jane Austen and fantasy alike. All books in the Magical Regency series are stand-alone novels and can be read in any order.

Meet Grace J Croy

Grace was born, raised, and now settled in Salt Lake City, Utah. She lives with her sweet cats in a little house at the bottom of a little mountain, where the snow piles high in the winter.

She graduated with a BA in English from Utah State University, and then went on to study Library and Information Science from Emporia State University. When she’s not writing, she works as a librarian. It’s the second-best job in the world–she gets paid to buy books, plan awesome community events, and advise readers on what books to try next. Creating stories is, of course, the best job in the world.
