ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
The Azure Kingdom was my first trip to a far off land where fantasy is reality and I absolutely adored it. I’m now officially an addict for fantasy romance and seek my next fix. I have added all the other books in the Skeleton Key series to my TBR/Wishlist and can’t wait to tackle them all. The whole concept of this series is brilliant! So many amazing authors writing their own tale that revolves around the elusive, mysterious and magical skeleton key.
After finding a letter from her late mother, Alison Wescot braves the chance at traveling to another realm. Having had magical dreams of a man too beautiful to be real, she ultimately learns that her trip to the Azure Kingdom was fated and Lucas Azure was truly a Prince Charming any girl would be lucky to have.
From the moment they meet, they feel the connection from their dreams and like moths to a flame they stay within each other’s orbit for the calm and safety it brings them. Faced with a possible war between kingdoms and a choice of returning home, Ali is taken on a breathtaking adventure where dragons are as real and domesticated as dogs and the land is more beautiful than anyone could possibly imagine.
This was such a fantastical story and I was whisked away from the moment she walked through that hidden door…much like The Witch and the Wardrobe. This was a stunning and beautifully written story and I can’t wait to find out where that skeleton key will lead to next.
