Contemporary Fantasy Paranormal Romance

Alice O’Brien has been cheated on yet again and no longer believes she’ll find a Prince Charming. She decides she is just going to enjoy men and not risk her heart again.

Suddenly she leaves her familiar home in San Francisco when she literally falls down a rabbit hole. She lands in a world that is both strange and beautiful. She also meets shapeshifting brothers, that are all fierce and irresistible. Jarronn, though is that and also powerful and dominant.

Jarronn has deliberately lured Alice to his realm because of the draw of a card foretelling his kingdom’s future. He hopes by doing so he will avert a danger that is threatening his people. His intention to save his kingdom is with his and Alice’s bond of passion.  Nothing will stop him from making Alice his Queen of Hearts.

This takes Alice in Wonderland and turns it on it head and inside out.  It also makes for a book that is very hard to put down once readers start it. The world building is fun and full of wonder that makes for an amazing read.  The characters are relatable and move the story along very well. Watching Alice start out in one place and ending up in another makes for an intriguing story. Readers will want to read the other books in the series just to see how everything turns out. This is also one book that having a glass of ice water nearby would be a very good idea.

I give this one 5 red roses
