An Unlikely Match by Sarah M. Eden

The future has never looked brighter for once penniless Nickolas Pritchard. Now in possession of an unforeseen legacy from a distant cousin, he can finally woo the exquisite Miss Castleton, belle of the London Season. What better setting for matchmaking than Ty Mynydd, his ancestral home nestled in the untamed hills of Wales? Ideal, indeed ... except for the ghost.

For nearly four hundred years, Gwen has walked the halls of the home in which she lived—and died a mysterious death. But despite centuries as the reigning force within her ancient residence, nothing prepares her for the charm and unexpected appeal of Englishman Nickolas.

A deep and abiding affection grows between the two, tempered by the unbreakable barrier that separates them. They cannot possibly hope for a happily ever after. there can be no future between a man yet living and a woman long dead.

But how can Nickolas possibly give Gwen up? And how can Gwen face an eternity without Nickolas?

Poor Nickolas. He is poor, he's invited to parties to round out the numbers and he has a crush on a woman whom he can't have. And he's a total playboy.
Until he's distant cousin dies and Nickolas Pritchard becomes heir to an estate and loads of money. Now that young lady and her parents look favorably on him. But the more he gets to know the  Ms. Castleton, the more he finds she's not quite what he wants in a woman. It's probably Gwen's fault his interest has changed. Only, it doesn't matter how much Nickolas falls for Gwen, she's a ghost. The Ghost who haunts the estate Nickolas just inherited. How can a person fall in love with a ghost?
Once again, Ms. Eden delivers on story, wit and character development. Throughout the story, the reader gets to watch the main characters grow. I especially enjoyed watching Nickolas change and deepen.

Love ghost story
Having characters tell us how to say certain names or words

Use of (lots) of unfamiliar words that were only used once and were confusing
