USA Today bestselling author Linda Needham brings you the fourth story in a series of romances touched by magic as old as time.

A courageous young woman is just managing to keep up with her family's vast, wartime farm when a handsome Lt. Colonel and his staff of officers take command of her home. A private war ensues between them, and the couple soon learns that resistance is futile when it comes to love in the heat of battle.

World War II has come to Nimway Hall, and with it an endless series of wartime challenges that its lady and guardian, Josie Stirling, must overcome. As courageous as each of the guardians who have come before her, Josie is determined to defend her family's ancient estate from all possible threats. But with the recent evacuation of Dunkirk and the bombs of the Blitz raining random terror across Britain, even the manor farm of Nimway has become as dangerous as any battlefield.

To add to her problems, not only has the military requisitioned an entire wing of Nimway Hall, they've sent the most arrogant officer in the entire army to command the unit. A man as arrogant as he is handsome. Not that Josie has time in her life to notice!

The very last post Lt. Colonel Gideon Fletchard ever wanted was to be holed up in the wilds of Somerset, in an old manor house, far from the front line. But he was seriously injured on a secret mission early in the war and has recovered just enough to command of a team of Royal Engineers, commissioned to build operational bases for Churchill's new Secret Army. Once a highly respected intelligence officer, Gideon resents his demotion to the "Home Front" and has little respect for the so-called civilian army he's been assigned to recruit and train. War is waged by soldiers in the field, not by farmers and factory workers. A sentiment the beautiful, contentious lady of Nimway Hall disputes at every turn. She seems to believe that her work for the war effort is as critical as his. Though the woman's opinions are seriously wrong-headed, she is as beautiful as she is devoted to her people and he can't help admiring the firm and resourceful way she manages the estate.

As the war between the sexes heats up, so does the ancient magic of romance. Josie and Gideon may not be looking for love, but at Nimway Hall they'll soon discover that love has come looking for them.

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Medieval, Victorian and Regency historical romances.

Like most authors, I started writing in early grade school the moment I realized I could use my crayons to write my own stories. Now I write full time from my home office near Portland, Oregon. When I'm not writing romance, I've been known to write and direct plays and musicals, garden 'til I drop, tap dance, hunt mushrooms, spoil the grandkids, take extended research treks with my husband and blaze trails through our 5-acre woodland with our Portuguese Water Dog.

One of my favorite professional perks (besides working in my sweats) is hanging out with other writers, attending conferences, meeting readers, and teaching writing workshops.
