Julian Massey has always been sickly. When the young man’s parents send him to the seaside town of Urchin Cove to recuperate, he finds himself stranded in a tiny cabin with only the quirky local inhabitants for company. Then a storm blows through, and he finds an unexpected discovery washed up on the beach: an unconscious man.
After stealing a treasure, Kit Archer is taken prisoner by a ruthless pirate, Captain Booth. When a storm hits the pirate ship, Kit is able to escape, but not without serious injuries. Jules nurses him back to health, and friendship grows into desire. But Captain Booth is bound to come in search of his treasure and the man who stole it.
In a world with dragons, sprites, and wizards, it’s going to take more than a little magic for Jules and Kit to find lasting happiness together.
Okay, I have to be honest, I didn’t read the blurb. I loved her Brute audio so much, so when this was offered of course YES!
On the flip side of that, that means I was happily listening along, then the cart was being pulled by a dragon, wait, what! LOL. I love you, KIM!
This was such a wonderful happy, surprising tale.
So many, good things happen to so many people, yes, Kit started out being a bad guy in someone’s eyes. But he was never bad to us. So that equals good. The parents are just absent, because Jules is not the healthiest kid/young adult the father has wrote him off. The mother dolts on him, but that can only go so far. So they pack him off to the seashore.
This is where, Jules finds himself for the first time. The man he is supposed to be. And we get to follow along. What an amazing experience that is.
Kit and Jules are just so perfect together, Kit with he’s mad adventures,and Jules with calm but eager that makes Kit want to be a better person. The learning of each other, happiness we felt as they feel it.
The descriptions we are given, from the simple walk to the store or the a meal at the local pub house. To the battle at the end, so well done.
The narrator does a wonderful job capturing everything about this book. From young, shy Jules, to the cheeky sprites. The men and women, all beautiful captured.
