Meg Gillingham is terrified. When her parents died, they left her and her siblings penniless, and she has been trying to figure out how they are to survive without having to sacrifice themselves.
The Earl of Saxon is furious when he realizes that his grandmother has written a letter to inform him of his promise to marry by his twenty-fifth birthday. They have been warring for fifteen years and he refuses to allow her to win this fight.
Meg hates to use the magic statue that has been passed down through the female lineage, but she has no other choice. Wishing for help out of a sticky situation, she is stunned when Sax proposes marriage especially since they do not know each other very well. Meg is afraid that while she is falling in love with her new husband, any feelings he has must be due to the magic and not his true feelings. Can Meg and Sax find the love that has grown between them before someone snuffs it out for good?
Forbidden Magic has elements of romance, danger, and magic weaved into the pages. I like how Ms. Beverley has Meg and Sax finding one another in such a unique way. The added tension that is brought forth due to the war going on between Sax and his grandmother just adds more obstacles into the novel. With all that is already involved in the plot, you then have the added bonus of the cruel and disgusting landlord. What an enjoyable book this was.
