A haunted inn. A magical violin. An intriguing innkeeper. Get ready for a smoldering romance you’ll want to devour in one sitting.
Legend tells of a sacred land shrouded by the obscure, where the barrier between worlds is thin, and strange things happen without rhyme or reason. Mila, a budding violinist, is unaware of these myths when she accepts a job at a remote inn called the Dawn.
Awed by the atmospheric location, Mila begins work, only to discover nothing is as it seems. Haunted by unsettling vestiges, mysterious disappearances, and the lure of a magical song, Mila takes it upon herself to unravel the secrets of the inn. And its handsome innkeeper.
Mila knows she should stay away from him, but every time he appears, her resolve weakens.
Fate may have brought them together but just as romance blooms, she discover his ghastly secret.
He’s the harbinger of darkness, and standing by his side is a dangerous choice between life and something much worse than death. . .
Song of the Dawn is a complete, stand-alone novel. Perfect for fans of adult fantasy romance who enjoy gothic suspense, ancient lore, and plenty of steamy romance. This book contains mature scenes. Recommend for 18+.

Song of the Dawn (Autographed)
The gothic haunting, but naturally atmospheric Dawn Inn is the perfect setting for this fantasy romance. Angela J. Ford’s epic fantasy roots find their way into her fantasy romance. I see this mostly in the pace, a slow build and in the inevitability of the conclusion. Neither of which are surprises in a romance, it just feels like epic fantasy.
Mila isn’t my usual favorite heroine, she has an unassuming nature and quiet strength. Once willing to take a chance on love, she is determined to hold on to it.
A wonderful fall read with a gothic inn and things that go bump in the night. This is offset by breathtaking nature and a blurring in natural lines between worlds. Expect some portal magic, old gods and forgotten power.
A sweet, but still steamy, fantasy romance with roots in epic fantasy and a heroine willing to risk her heart and follow her passions.
I received an arc copy of this book.
First I want to say that I love that your main characters are always unique. Mila for example with her purple hair and dreams of being a musician. I love that your characters aren’t copy paste types.
I enjoyed the story although the middle got a little stagnant for me. I would have loved to know more about why she had the visions when she played.
I don’t want to put any spoilers in my review so I will keep it simple. I loved the world building you did and it was easy for me to view the world you were creating. You give enough details to easily see what you are wanting us to see.
Keep up the great work Angela!

I was immediately curious about Ezra's story. Who is the sorceress? What has she taken from Ezra? And why? Most importantly what must he do to get it back?
From the moment we get to read Mila's story, I immediately forgot all the questions I had about Ezra's story. It also didn't matter that I completely forgot because Mila her story, the Inn, the stories of the other characters especially Endia and Giselle's story were very intriguing and kept me wanting to read more.
The book continues to captivate and reads very smoothly. Towards the end I found it unfortunate that the focus started to become more and more on just the main characters alone and the importance of the other characters faded away.
Pros of the book: I found a variety of characters, mentioning breastfeeding without sexualizing it, treating people as people at work and not as slaves who have to work themselves to death (too little attention is given today to employees' mental health, work-life balance, ect. ).
Cons of the book: Open stories at the end of the book. I am left with some questions (what will become of Rachelle? How will the reopening of the Inn go without Ginger? Who really knew the whole truth about Ezra and his story?).
I got a beauty and the beast retelling vibe at times.
Angela J Ford keeps improving her books.
