DREAM ISLAND

Lady Joanna Hawkforte spent her childhood reading about the wondrous beauty of Akora. But now the country of her dreams has become a symbol of her worst nightmare. Nine months ago her brother embarked on a dangerous journey to find the mythic land-and Joanna never heard from him again. Believing he is being held captive in Akora, she is compelled to devise a desperate plan to find him….

The son of an English lord and an Akoran princess, Lord Alex Darcourt has spent months in England on a secret mission. Now he has set sail back to the land of his youth-and to an unknown fate in a nation fraught with unrest. But Alex’s discovery of a secret stowaway has thrown his voyage into turmoil. A bold, honey-haired beauty, Joanna has no idea of the danger she’s placed herself in. As Alex’s ship enters its home port, he hopes he can protect her in a world where she is unwelcome. But his greatest challenge proves to be protecting Joanna from his own smoldering desire-a forbidden passion that could put both their lives in jeopardy.

Why Dream Island?

This is a delightful story that worked for me in every way. It has a mix of magical elements and set in a historical settings. I would say Regency era since there is some moments in England, but much of the book focuses on a hidden society on a island and I was drawn into this world.
