Regina Barone wants to experience life
for a change. Feeling a bit low because the only available
man on the island just got married, Regina wishes she could
let go and forget for one minute that she has
responsibilities. While on a break from her duties as
caterer to Caleb Hunter’s wedding reception, Regina grabs
some wine and heads to the beach. A few glasses later, she
runs into Dylan Hunter, Caleb’s older though very young
looking brother. Dylan’s scent calls to Regina and before
she knows it she is experiencing the seduction of a
Dylan is a selkie and as such, he wants
to experience very little as a human. While he has his own
home on an island in which to be human, Dylan is much more
at ease in the sea. When the prince of the selkies sends
him on a mission, Dylan is very reluctant and hesitant but
follows orders. After all, Regina Barone was just a fluke,
right? Dylan could not be more wrong.
It seems as if the demons are back at
World’s End and it is up to Dylan to keep the one they are
after safe. In between his duties to his prince and his
desires as a man, Dylan and Regina’s relationship changes
with the tides. What will happen when the demons are gone?
Will he stay or will he once again head out to sea?
Having read Sea Witch, also by
Virginia Kantra, I couldn’t wait to read Sea Fever.
Dylan nabbed my attention when he was introduced and his
seduction of Regina on the beach made me sweat. I loved how
he was adamant that he was a selkie and as such would NOT
have any human ties and he would NOT become dependent on a
human and he would NOT stay near World’s End. I loved it
because I knew it was a bunch of hogwash. Dylan no more
could have left Regina than a man on the moon. Regina was
just as tough and guarded because she had been burned before
and I couldn’t blame her. I found their relationship
complex and very real.
Sea Fever by Virginia
Kantra is a must read! Dylan’s gruffness and Regina’s
boundaries add up to a wonderful tale of how true love can
defrost even the most frozen of hearts. Add in the teaser
at the end about Sea Lord, the third book of this
wonderful series, and I am totally hooked and looking
forward to the next installment!
