Format: Hardcover
As a lad Jack Langdon realized he had some wizard powers. But sorcery is only for the lower classes and shunned by gentry. Upon finding out Jack showed magical talent, his father sent him off to Stonebridge Academy. This is where all the gentry sent their sons to have them (basically) brainwashed into hating all things that deal with magic, especially the wizards "wyrdlings" who use it. On Jack's first full day at the academy, he meets the boys who will grow up to be his best friends. Ransom, Ashby, Kenmore, and Winslow were sent to the academy for the same reason as Jack. The academy did its job extremely well. As the boys grew into strong men, they buried their powers deep within themselves. In Jack's case though, his father took a couple of extra precautions to ensure Jack would hate everything about magic.

Abigail "Abby" Barton is one of the best wizards in her generation. She has coveted Jack, Lord Frayne, for years but was content to worship him from afar. Abby is the area's best healer, except for her father, Sir Andrew Barton. But her father is away on business when Jack's friends knock upon her door. Jack has had an accident and is near death. With no where else to turn, Ransom and Ashby take Jack to Abby. Abby can save Jack's life, but only if she makes a great self-sacrifice to do so. Her price is Jack's hand in marriage.

It is not long before Jack feels an irresistible attraction to his new wife. Her allure is as intense as the reawakening magical abilities that dwell within himself. The two will challenge each other's extraordinary powers and deepest desires for the sake of a love that may cost them all they cherish most.

***** An outstanding story filled with love, magic, and trust. I did not think that I would enjoy this book when I laid eyes upon it.

I loved this book, as I have loved all her books. Abby is a Wizard/healer - a gentle lady who already half loves Jack when she is called upon to perform healing on Jack who amongst other injuries has a broken neck which is generally fatal. Her price for doing this is Marriage if he survives.Jack and his friends do not like Wizards. This is a story of dawning love, magic, and mystery.

I was disappointed with this book. The plot and the characters which were very two dimensional made 'The Marriage Spell' dull and unsatisfying. I have been an avid reader of MJP 's historical romances and rated her absolute tops with regards to historical research, the drawing of complex yet believable characters and brilliant plots eg 'petals in the storm' THis book and others recently rely too much on 'magic' and not enough on drawing the characters out and having a good context and story line
