"Great romantic suspense"
In 1811, Lady Joanna Hawkforte pleads with Lord Alex
Darcourt to help her find her brother Royce missing for
over six months. Joanna believes her sibling is being held
prisoner on the fortress island of Akora. Since Alex is
half Akoran and half English and is half-brother to Atreus,
the Vanax ruler of the island, she believes he can rescue
Royce. Alex insists no stranger has come to Akora because
he would know.
When Alex sets sail for his home, a desperate Joanna
sneaks on board the ship. With dissension even among the
Akoran Council over Atreus' efforts to reform society,
Joanna is an unwelcome stranger. As Alex struggles to keep
the female Xenos safe, they fall in love. However, before
exploring a relationship between them, they must deal with
an insidious plot to depose the Vanax using the
incarceration of Royce to further their cause.
In a short time, Josie Litton has become a fan favorite
and her tale will embellish her reputation. Ms. Litton's
latest trilogy opens with an exciting Regency romance that
takes the two stars refreshingly away from the Ton to an
enchanting Shangri-La. The exciting story line enables the
audience to taste a culture that is more isolated than
most; though insightful, the description paints a place too
enlightening and Utopian. Still, DREAM ISLAND is a
wonderful tale that fans will enjoy while anxiously
awaiting the next story, KINGDOM OF MOONLIGHT, starring
Royce and Kassandra (Alex's Akoran sister).
