Book #1 1750: Jacqueline by Stephanie Laurens, Book #2 1794: Charlotte by Karen Hawkins. The moment Isabel de Rossi turns eighteen, she takes charge of Nimway Hall, which has stood empty for the past ten years. Well-aware that all her female forebears found true love at Nimway, she can't wait to discover her own match. Instead she's faced with Adam Driscoll, the practical estate manager whose presence is a constant reminder that her own grandmother thinks she has no idea what she's doing. Adam thought the offer of a position at Nimway Hall a godsend. After spending six years managing his uncle's estate he was facing either a dreary career in the army or the church. The last complication he needs is a foreign-raised heiress intent on finding a magical orb; but Adam can't help noticing that his strangely derailed repairs are suddenly on track, and that the mistress of the Hall is genuinely interested improving her estate. And he is beginning to find it hard to resist his simmering attraction. Isabel though wonders if she isn't worthy of becoming the property's guardian. The famous orb - the artifact reputedly responsible for every love match made at Nimway Hall is nowhere to be found until Lord Alton arrives and starts to pursue Isabel. The orb suddenly appears, though it seems to have a preference for Adam.
