Description

One key, one door, one man, one leap.

Alison Wescot inherited the antique store the day her mother died. It was nothing she wanted, but she couldn’t part with it. The antiques inside were all she had left of her mother. She thought she knew every piece in the store, until one day she discovered a box with a key inside, along with a letter from her mother. A key to a door she never knew existed.

Lucas Azure is the leader of the kingdom’s elite guard, a group of men whose sole purpose was to protect their territory and people. The youngest of the king’s four children, he was also the deadliest. The men in his group followed him faithfully, never questioning his orders. When Alison appeared, he knew he had to protect her at all costs.

The day Alison walked through the door, her recurring dream became a reality. The man who always remained a mystery was standing before her. There were dragons flying overhead and a castle in the distance. She was now in the Azure Kingdom. 

Reviews

  • Potential but poorly executed

    This novel lacks character development and a coherent plot. The main characters are shallow and inconsistent. The heroine comes off like a silly child instead of a mature, recently divorced grown up. The book jumps from one improbable scene to the next often changing tense like a retrospective and then switching to some immediate moment. However, for someone looking for such, the book spends tons of pages on lurid sex that only a 13 year old school girl would think real. The book has potential but the pacing is off and the story just never really gets developed.

    I love the concept of this book, but the characters and storyline are not as developed as much as they could be. Instead of the story unfolding and feeling being created through imagery, the reader is told the feelings. This book has a lot of potential. I hope the author will rework the concept and republish.

    This idea has so much potential but the characters lack the depth needed to immerse me in the novel.
