Is Camellia Saxon really here, as a guest in the castle of the world’s most mysterious royal family? Not too long ago, she was shuffling through a humdrum suburban routine. Now, surrounded by the exotic allure of the Isle of Arcadia, she’s struggling not to pinch herself.
Cam’s excitement turns to dread when she lays eyes on Evrest Cimarron. Beautiful, commanding, and regal, he turns her logic to ash and her blood to fire...making it all too easy to overlook the crown on his head.
As an Arcadian, Evrest is already on Cam’s don’t-even-go-there list, and as the leader of the kingdom, he’s a forbidden fantasy never to be fed...until a mishap lands Cam in Evrest’s most secret chamber.
Surrounded by luxury beyond imagination, she’s seduced by a creature who’s not just a charming host and elegant king - he’s a powerful, passionate man. In Evrest’s arms, Cam learns she has new identities, too. The sensible girl gives way to a woman of illicit needs and sinful desires.

A WONDERFUL MODERN-DAY FAIRYTALE
A true love contemporary creative fairytale.. a beautiful soul-to-soul love story.. a passion and lust filled hot romance.
Oh Angel.. Angel.. Angel.. you’ve hit it out of the park with this very romantic love story. You’ve written a compelling forbidden romance between Everest Cimarron - the devastatingly handsome and charismatic King of the remote island of Arcadia and twenty-four yr old Camellia (aka Cam) Saxon - a sweet and oh so feisty American College graduate. An untouchable King who must choose a wife before he’s thirty - picked from the twelve women of the ‘Distinct’ all vying to be Queen. A down-to-earth Assistant Producer of a film crew - the first people allowed onto the mysterious island. You painted a breathtakingly beautiful longing-filled love story that had me picturing each scene as your descriptive world-building imagery weaved wonders and slowly revealed a true gem of an adult fairytale. You captured their chemistry deliciously.. from the moment their eyes met at the Ball - right through to the Epilogue had sighworthy intensity.. and, even though you’d put rules and a vow in their way forbidding their union, you managed to write some very hot scenes. I loved Cam’s humorous quick-witted thoughts and dialogue, there was a perfect balance of angst and drama and feels.. and I loved the dirty-talking sexy hero who was torn between his duty and his love. Yes, you’ve created a Kingdom like no other.. a make-believe literary Kingdom where I drooled.. and sighed.. and loyally lingered as forbidden soul-mates overcame obstacles and eventually triumphed,
Worth a credit? This seductive passion-filled love story, with its off-the-charts chemistry and tension-filled torment, is told entirely from Cam’s humorous and sometimes heartbreaking POV. Angel Payne’s seductive words lure you in as an insta-lust first meeting spins and spirals.. and broken hearts battle between loyalty and love.. and it’s a “just one more chapter” listen. The narration by Summer Morton brought the whole story to life and YES, she made this audiobook very creditworthy.

It could have been better.<br />
This could have been a lot better with dual narration. The female narrator didn't really work for me. Something was just lacking in her performance. Maybe a male narrator would have helped the female narrator out.
Overall, the story was kind of long and a bit too slow in some chapters. I actually skipped a few chapters .
Wish I could have given a more positive review .
