All she wanted was a vacation … but Dumnos offered a new life Lilith Evergreen has always lived in the California desert, but when she receives an antique ring as a gift, she dreams of a magnificent tree at cliff's edge, a castle by the sea, and a mysterious woman who bids Lilith to come to Dumnos, a land of mist and rain. Cade Bausiney is the future Earl of Dumnos, but at present he just wants to bolster the local economy with a scheme to increase tourism. When Cade and Lilith meet, they're overwhelmed with longing for each other - but their desire might be magically induced. Long ago a witch's spell ended in disaster that left two souls to haunt Dumnos to this day. Lilith and Cade must find a way to make things right - or be forever possessed by the spirits who've waited a millennium to consummate their love.
I really wanted to enjoy this book as the description really apealed. Lilith and Cade are likeable characters, but there was so much switching between this couple and Diantha and Galen that I got really confused. The magical fairyland of Dumnos worked better, but I found the intricacies all too much. I think this story would work better over two books, with the back story of Galen and Diantha, Elyse, Idris, Lourdes, Igdrasil and Aubrey being the first.
