Amazing Book! I fell in love within the first few chapters!

I absolutely loved the Authors’ writing style!  She is incredibly talented and writes in such an eloquent way, it makes everything come alive in vivid detail. I felt as if the world she built became real.  Cheryl’s style of writing is what I aspire to achieve!

After the death of her father, seventeen-year-old Marisa’s life is on the verge of imploding.  Her brother and Uncle is all she has left.  She seeks a few minutes peace after attending her father’s funeral and heads out on horseback through the woods of Gold Hill, when a mysterious lightning storm strikes. Marisa finds herself hurled into a different dimension with only the clothes on her back and her horse.

Once she finds herself in the land of Carnelia she is discovered by Darian and his cousin, Arrigo. It’s obvious to them that she needs their help, so they take her under their protection in order to get her back home.

Destiny woke up on an Oregon beach beside a dead man with little memory of who she is or why she is there.  All she knows is that she needs to wait for dawn to perform a ceremony to dispose of his body.  She also knows that she needs to keep moving and needs to get to Maine.

Once Egan’s body is disposed of in the dawn ceremony, Destiny takes off and ends up playing chicken with Trae, who is Egan’s brother. Trae is a thief with a sexy, knowing grin and a secret agenda of his own.

By the second or third chapter it becomes known to Destiny that she is a Sea Dragon who managed to escape from a lab in Scotland who kept her captive for over 10 years with her mother, Egan and a bunch of children.
