She was just a child when she was washed ashore on the exotic island of Akora, shipwrecked and orphaned. Now she must make a heartbreaking choice: to reclaim her past--or to face her future with the most powerful man she has ever known. Raised in the fortress kingdom of Akora, Brianna’s memories of life before her parents’ tragic death at sea are blurred and fleeting. Though embraced by Akora’s elite, she longs to know her true identity--and the truth about her haunting fear that she is to blame for her parents’ fate. But while the answers lure her to far-off England, a fiery passion she never knew existed may bind her to Akora forever. Handsome and headstrong, Atreus is a powerful warrior whose clan has ruled Akora for centuries. A secret ritual has made him the chosen ruler of his people--and revealed to him a vision of the lovely Brianna as the woman he is meant to marry. Fearing she will never return from her journey, Atreus sets sail to win her. But a treacherous enemy looms, and it will soon fall to the brave couple to unite their hearts and share even their darkest secrets to save not only their burgeoning love--but their very homeland.… (more)

Atreus is Vanax of Akora, a title similar to King, but not quite. The Vanax is chosen in a mysterious ritual, and it's rumored that the chooser is Akora itself. However, those who seek power and wish to discredit and oust him claim this as a lie. Brianna helped nurse Atreus through a recent convalescence and then returned to England seeking more information about the country she supposes she was from before she washed up a shipwrecked orphan on the shores of Akora. Atreus has determined from a vision he saw during his Vanax-choosing ritual, that she is to be his consort, and goes off to England to "fetch" her. Brianna is not easily fetched, and Atreus is not used to being contradicted. The sparks really fly between these two! I loved them both and the land of Akora as well. ( )
