The Pages of the Mind

Jeffe Kennedy. Kensington, $9.95 trade paper (458p) ISBN 978-1-4967-0424-5
Kennedy spins a new fantasy romance series off the Twelve Kingdoms books (The Talon of the Hawk, etc.) as diffident librarian Dafne Mailloux of the Twelve Kingdoms is sent on a diplomatic mission to King Nakoa KauPo of the wealthy and independent Nahanau islands. Almost immediately after her arrival, Nakoa sweeps Dafne into a clearly magical ritual with unknown implications—except Dafne is reasonably certain they might now be married. Dafne's companions leave her behind with Nakoa in an attempt to salvage their original mission while she tries to resist his appealingly roguish attempts to seduce her mind as well as her body. After facing off with Nakoa's scornful rival, Tane, Dafne must use all of her skills to resolve a conflict that could endanger both her romance with Nakoa and the fate of the islands. New readers will quickly engage with the charming heroine, whose confidence in her research abilities proves satisfyingly well earned. (June)
