Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts

Sasha Riggs is a reclusive artist, haunted by vivid dreams and nightmares that she turns into extraordinary paintings. Desperate to understand her visions, she finds herself drawn to the Greek island of Corfu.

She has only just arrived when she encounters Bran Killian, an Irish magician with a warm charisma and secrets dancing in his eyes. Sasha has never met Bran before, but she knows him only too well - because this is the man from her dreams. The man she has painted over and over again. The man she seems fated to be with...if she can find the courage to accept who she really is.

Sasha soon discovers that four other strangers have been lured to the island. Like Bran, they are all desperately searching for a mysterious jewel known as the fire star - before it falls into the wrong hands. Together, they might just succeed. But first they must learn to trust one another, and reveal their deepest secrets.

On the sun-drenched island of Corfu, love and magic are sparked into life. And for Sasha, nothing will ever be the same again.


I would like to thank Clara Diaz for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. 

The story follows six people thrown together on Corfu.  The main two characters are Sasha and Bran, Sasha is easily likeable and through sheer determination she becomes a force to be reckoned with, and uses the help of the others to get where she needs to be.

This story is a wonderful mix of magic, mystery and romance with added mythology thrown in for good measure.  I loved that all the characters had their own unique gifts in the fight against the dark.

Let me talk about the hot hero in this story, as everyone knows I love a hot hero and Bran certainly is that.  He is fabulous with talents that other fantasy heros of mine can only every dream of.

I loved that the story is set around the bonding of the six and the start of their friendships.  Looking forward to reading the second book in this series.
