This book had the charm of being set on an island called "Abandon" and it seemed to have touches of the supernatural - both in what people did and what happened to the land itself. Fortunately, any hokey pokey was for the good of man and not evil (except for the creepy little man called Pasco). The lead heroine Morwenna was beloved by the island people for all the good that she did for everyone and they were also a little mystified of the "magic" she could perform. Morwenna's magic was more what occurred around her versus what she could conjure up herself - that was the charming part of her mischief.
Our hero Anthony Pentargon took over the island when his brother died. Anthony came to clean up his brother's estate and planned to sell the island and land to a high ranking English lord in parliament for the exchange of help in passing laws to help out the poor and indigent children of London. Morwenna and her fellow countryman would loose out if the land was sold off so, she attempted to intervene and stop the transaction. Needless to say, the hero and heroine become charmed with one another during their interactions of the sale and their relationship developed.
Nice pleasant read... had a fairy tale feel to it.
Love plus intrigue, always a great story with Hunter.
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.
