Isola Dei Sogni. The Island where dreams and fantasies become reality…

That’s what the brochure promised, but Meryl wasn’t born yesterday. A whole lot of balderdash, if you ask her. Still, as far as holidays go, a few days in the sun are not to be sniffed at.

Seeing his mate on the Island had not been in this shifter’s plan. However, this gives him the perfect opportunity to prove his love to Meryl. He is just the man to make all of her fantasies come true.

If only she’ll accept both man and beast, they can have the future they both crave.

Meryl is tempted when her friend gives her a brochure for a holiday resort promising to cater to every dream and fantasy. A busy career woman, Meryl knew she and her closest friends could all use a bit of R and R. Meryl knew it was crazy to shift her world around because she saw a certain man in the brochure – a man who had broken her heart in the past – but she just can’t help herself. Will this time end differently for them both?

This is an interesting paranormal story with a large host of characters. It took me a short while to get a good feel for the shifter world, but I enjoyed getting to know Meryl and Marloth and learning about their checkered past and watching them come together once again. I feel many readers will enjoy the back-and-forth banter between Meryl and Marloth, each wanting the other badly but neither willing to give an inch. It certainly made the story realistic and intriguing to my mind. I also loved the idea of a fantasy island – just some warm beach with your every whim catered to. It seemed so lush and decadent.

I believed in the chemistry between Meryl and Marloth, but was a little surprised at a few of the twists the author pulled out as Meryl and Marloth worked out why it had taken them so long to reconnect. That whole section of plot felt a little convoluted to me and while I completely believed in their attraction and mutual feelings, their separation and the reasons behind it never really resonated with me.

That said, I found the sex and intimacy between Meryl and Marloth lovely to read and really enjoyed the back-and-forth of them coming together. They were spicy and clearly passionate about each other, so that made this section of the story feel fresh and interesting to me. Readers looking for a spicy paranormal romance with a few twists in the plot should definitely give this one a try.
