    Anthony Hartstone, the Earl of Pentargon is closing out the estate of his recently deceased brother Arthur by selling his beloved island ABANDON to the Marquess of Camelbourne. In exchange for ridding himself of a worthless piece of granite, Anthony expects to gain the Marquess' support on a child labor reform bill.

    The islanders turn to Morwenna Halliwell as the only hope to change Anthony's mind because they fear the changes that Camelbourne will do to their beloved home. When she fails to persuade the noble to change his mind even while casting a spell on him, everyone feels forlorn that Anthony will desert them. However, he knows that without the Marquess' support his bill to make things safe for children will fail. There is also a dark sorcerer causing trouble and animals and mythical people doing strange things that make no sense to the practical minded Anthony. Only love for Morwenna seems right in this upside down ABANDON.

    ABANDON is a wonderful tale that satirizes the Arthurian legend with a powerful historical romance that never slows down on the action or the magic. The story line is filled with weird characters that make for an enchanting tale that proves Jillian Hunter is clearly a descendent of Merlin by magically transporting readers to a world of enchantment.
