Outstanding, Nancy Campbell Allen, Young Adult, Romance, Animals, Magic, Curse
Doctor Isla Cooper is cursed to sleep as though dead from midnight to six in the morning. The curse affects her job, especially since she is supposed to work at night. Unfortunately, time is running out before the curse becomes permanent. She discovers the witch who cursed her is across the sea and must travel there immediately. She meets Captain Daniel Pickett on his ship and there is an undeniable attraction, but she doesn't want to tie him down with her problems. Daniel insists on helping her no matter what, and with the help of four other passengers, he is able to reverse the curse just in time with a kiss of true love.
