The Azure Kingdom

The Azure Kingdom BT Banner
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.
This book has elements of fairy tales,fantasy, mythical creatures and of course love. Two very different worlds collide and the culture shock is huge. The plot holds your interest well. I was entertained from the start. You are carried into the Azure Kingdom right beside Ali. AlkAli and Luke have seen each other in dreams for years. After Ali's mother passes away her antique business is left in Ali's hands. After finding an unusual box with a key and a very surprising letter inside, Ali steps into a new world. The first person she meets is Luke, literally the man of her dreams. Their life stories are more involved than either guessed. Bring in a group of flying dragons, warring kings, lost relatives and plots to bring down states. Mix in a sexy Prince and princess whose passions grow very quickly, mythical lands and the answers to long held mysteries and this tale delivers it's own fantasy recipe mixed with passionate love. I really enjoyed this book and will be looking out for more in this series. Reviewed for WTMO.
