Once upon a time, an evil faerie queen traveled through the looking-glass with the cruelest of intentions…to curse a baby.

When Alora meets her prince at a masquerade and shares a moonlight dance, her life is forever changed. As her heart longs for his promised return, she can't get his amber gaze far from her mind.

The Faerie Prince of the White Kingdom doesn't remember the night he fell in love with his true mate. Debauchery and unrest are twisting the subjects of Wonderland into sinister faeries, and the prince is suffering right alongside his people. With time ticking down to preserve the wonder of his land, he’ll need to battle his greatest foe and regain his lost memories or risk sacrificing everything.

With the help of the Resistance and a tutor with style and sass, Alora is destined to save the two kingdoms, but she’ll need to embrace the darkness in order to fulfill the prophecy. What Wonderland needs most is a savior. But she’s only ever been a simple English girl. No pressure there.

This is book two in a Regency fairytale re-telling mash-up series Courts & Curses with guaranteed happily ever afters and surprising twists to the tales you thought you knew. Adventure through the six Courts of Faerie in this shared universe as they battle the darkness that seeks to destroy their existence. Each book is written as a standalone with interconnecting characters and themes.


I received A Court of Broken Promises & Nightmares in return for an honest review from Hidden Hollow Book Tours. 

I knew the moment I saw the cover for this one I had to read it because it's just stunning. Toss in that it has Alice in Wonderland elements it was a must because it's my favorite retelling. I love Alora as a character she's a sweetheart and I really felt like I was able to connect with her. I loved Phillip too but Alora was my favorite. They have this sweet romance that isn't easy but she never gives up in him. 

I ended up devouring this chunky book in just two days it was hard to put down and I had to know how it was going to play out as war was coming for our fated lovers. A Court of Broken Promises & Nightmares doesn't disappoint it kept me hooked from start to finish I was obsessed on Alora and Phillips story.

This is the 2nd in the series but each one is a standalone so it works out perfectly. I didn't feel like I missed anything diving right in. I loved every moment of the story it was beautifully written from start to finish. This is my first book by the author and I'm a fan, her writing style is just so captivating it's easy to lose all track of time drawn into the story. I'm not a huge regency fan but I love how it mixed into the story and look forward to more stories from the author. Highly recommend checking her out!
