Land of Dreams cover

Land of Dreams: Willem was created of magic and trapped in the Land of Dreams by a curse in which he shared his gargoyle form with Eduardo. When Eduardo freed himself from the evil spell his jealous half-brother Erokan cast on him, Willem was given a new life. Now a gargoyle shifter, Willem meets Cicely, daughter of Lord Montrose. Everything he’s ever wanted is within his grasp. But he isn’t the only man who longs to capture her.

Aware Cicely descends from royalty and was hidden away as a child to keep her magical ability a secret, a mysterious stranger intends to bend the powerful fire elemental to his will.

Cicely knows she possesses magical ability. Falling in love with the courageous, self-sacrificing Willem may be the key to awakening…or unleashing…something formidable buried deep inside her.

Felicia’s Review

 Land of Dreams excerpt

 Elemental magic had created his life and destroyed it. And yet, Maris wanted him to help Cicely to awaken her magic. To make it stronger.

 “Willem? Are you all right?” Cicely was starting at him, her expression quizzical. “You look funny.”

 Willem sighed and wiped the crumbs from his fingers. “It’s getting late.”

“You want me to leave?” she asked.

 “No…I…you…” Words failed him. “You don’t have to spend the entire day with me. Isn’t Trevor waiting? Or maybe another young man?”

 “Trevor is out hunting with my father and some others. He’s trying to win Father over, but it won’t work. Father knows I have no interest in him.”

 “Then why bother to entertain him?”

“Protocol, diplomacy…ridiculous things like that. Things that don’t matter,” she said.

Willem rose and went over to join her. “But you are heir to Montrose. It matters. Surely you want a prince or king by your side.”

She laughed. “No, I don’t care about that. You’ve been in love, Willem. Surely you understand that titles aren’t important. I want to be happy, and I want love.”

Love. He’d spent a few years longing for his love. Then after a short while, it was over. No, that was Eduardo. Not him. Not him. “Love is not to be counted on.”

 Cicely reached out to him. “How do you know that for sure? Maybe you counted on the wrong person.”

 Grasping her hand, he kneeled down next to her. “How do I find the right one?” he asked.

“Your heart will tell you.”

 Willem gritted his teeth to keep from shuddering, but it didn’t work. She was so close to him, and he wasn’t sure whether it was the heat from the fire or her proximity that warmed him.

His desire for her was even stronger than his distaste for magic.

When the attacks started, Prince Astar hired an investigator to solve the crimes. When the third investigator went missing he knew he had to try something different. He decided to hire Kyra, a smart and sassy woman, who also happens to be a thief.

Kyra wants the job, it pays well and is far more interesting than sneaking around and copying people’s signatures. But she has no intention of being the fourth dead investigator, so she needs protection.

Kyra turns to the one man even mercenaries fear: Bazur, a solitary mercenary half-orc, infamous for his barroom brawls.
Together they might solve the problem of the mysterious attacks on the prince’s associates, but only if they can ignore the building chemistry between them and survive the attacks on their lives!
