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.

Little does he know, his new bride has a mind of her own, and a heart to serve the “women of the night” that their narrow-minded community have deemed too tainted to associate with. Charlotte’s efforts to redeem them invokes the anger of their patroness, who threatens William’s clergy position if he cannot convince Charlotte to end her scandalous connection.

Their marriage, hanging by the threads of a fragile love, is pushed to the limit as Charlotte refuses to abandon her cause for the sake of comfort and security.

But worse still are the schemes of the wicked brothel owner, who will stop at nothing to keep the source of his profits- the harlots- under his control.

In a small town beset by prejudice, hypocrisy, and vice, it will take compassion, love, and the power of faith to rescue Charlotte’s friends from the clutches of evil and restore happiness to Charlotte and William.
