The Lure of Shapinsay by Krista Holle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review from the author. Thank you Krista!
This book was great! I was skeptical to read The Lure of Shapinsay, because I typically read more contemporary novels, but I was quickly enveloped into the world that Krista had made. I was blown away at the love that the characters felt for one another, it was very touching. I had never heard of the Selkie (a seal man that can shed his skin and become a very beautiful man), but I'd sure like to be lured by one of them.. maybe not to my death though.
Kait lives with her twin brother on an Island in the North Sea. When a half-selkie infant was killed, Eamon went to seek revenge. He was determined to kill Kait. One night Kait awoke with a gorgeous Selkie man standing over her, inadvertently luring her. He couldn't go through with the deed. Time passes as does their paths, and they fall in love. They have a hard road ahead, especially with her hard headed Selkie-man. The two were drawn together but fate separated them. Can their love conquer all?
If you'd like to read a New Adult book with a fantastic romance, and a mysterious yet hot paranormal aspect, then I'd strongly recommend this book!
