Terri Fletcher has never had any trouble meeting men, but keeping them is not her forte.  One night, after a friend ditches her and she ends up attending an embarrassing workshop on meeting men alone, she finds an injured, naked man on the beach near her house.  He’s strange, but undeniably attractive.

Destin MacCodrum is a selkie.  After surviving a shark attack, he loses his cap and ends up on Terri’s beach.  When she helps him, he realizes he wants her.  Can Destin find his cap and still keep Terri? 

Beneath a Midnight Seawas an interesting and action-packed read.  Terri’s experience at the workshop was funny, as were the interactions between her and her very odd family.  Her reactions to Destin, who came across as decidedly strange at first, were also amusing.  Destin was an interesting and multi-faceted hero, alternately arrogant and sweet.  The love scenes are frequent and hot.  The only problem I had with this story is that near the end, it feels like way too much is crammed in.  This is clearly the beginning of what promises to be a fascinating series, and I think it could have benefited from a bit more back-story.  Still, this is definitely a worthwhile read for anyone who likes the sea, magic, and mythology.
