Abandon - Okay
Hunter, Jullian

The English island of Abandon, enshrouded in ancient legend, is home to the headstrong Morwenna Halliwell. Determined to fight back when the island is offered to the highest bidder, Morwenna confronts the Earl of Pentargon, Anthony Hartstone. Even though he dismisses Morwenna and her complaints, he finds himself enchanted by her fiery beauty and courageous manner.

It was only okay.
Barbara ★
I loved Morwenna, a seriously snarky female. She knew what she wanted and wasn't going to be derailed. And Anthony was determined to resist her allure and failed miserably. King Arthur's legend filled the backstory. Apparently King Arthur was buried on Abandon Island and the residents regularly went looking for his burial cave. Morgan Le Fey plays an important role in the story too. A fun story with a little danger thrown in.

The setting of this book is where King Author's body is supposedly laid to rest. This was a cute read, well-written, tickled my funny bone several times with the quirky characters. Morwenna has some magical abilities that she hasn't quite learned how to control. There is a wizard training her.

I'd call this a nice gentle read with very wonderfully developed characters.

Cute!

This, of course, does not sit well with the islanders

Anthony Hartstone, Earl of Pentargon, is selling the Abandon, an island where fantasy and magic can still be found, and the residents are not happy. The

Unexpected. It was a sweet book (as always with Jillian) but the King Arthur background was intriguing.

I nearly tossed this book away. Glad I didn't. When I started to read it again I found I couldn't put it down. It's full of magic, ghosts, love and lust
