Overview

A man haunted by the past meets a woman without a future in a tale that spans rugged Greek islands and Regency England society. From bestselling author Katherine Kingsley.

Having grown up wild and carefree on the Greek island of Corfu, Callista Melbourne reluctantly sails to England to honor her father’s dying wish. But before she reaches England, a fierce storm knocks her from the ship to face certain death in the icy grip of the ocean. When she awakes in Stanton Abbey, cared for by a handsome stranger, she doesn’t know where he came from, or who she is.

When Adam Carlyle pulls the unconscious woman from the sea, she is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen. Concerned by her amnesia, he tracks down Callista’s true identity, and becomes determined to save her from marrying a scheming fortune hunter. A widower, his attraction to Callista threatens his vow to never risk his heart again, and leaves him wondering how to protect his new love from the dangers of his past.

    Room 1-1

    A lush green painted room that looks like a forest. Potted plants are everywhere, and green velvet curtains sit beside a large window that opens into a pine forest. A wicker basket with green linen sheets is near the window.

    Greatly absorbing and bound for the Keeper's Shelf!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----Her beloved father dies imploring Callista to return to her homeland of England and marry his best friend¿s son Harold. She sails to England to honor part of her father¿s wishes, but is also determined to defy his final request to marry an unknown person. But near the shore of England, her ship gets caught in a fierce storm and Callista is thrown into the turbulent sea. ...............................................Adam Carlyle, Marquess of Vale, is fed up, absolutely and completely. He goes rowing out into the middle of the stormy sea in order to commit suicide and at the exact moment he¿s about to do it, he sees a girl fall of a ship! His ingrain sense of responsibility forces him to abandon his suicidal ambitions and rescue the girl. ...............................................Adam cannot wait for the girl to get well and go back to wherever she came from, so that he can once again start planning his suicide! The doctor¿s revelation that she¿s suffering from amnesia comes as a rude shock to him. But in looking after Callie, Adam finally finds a reason to live again. Gradually everything about her begins to enchant him. Soon this woman with no memories and this man who badly wishes he could forget his past, begin to heal together. And then Harold comes back to claim Callie and he turns out to be Adam¿s worst enemy. ...............................................The book is highly intriguing despite its typical storyline and this is mainly due to the character of Adam Carlyle. Hilarity shimmers in the initial pages when we find this peer outraged at having to postpone his suicide to rescue a girl who was dumb enough to fall in the sea! Callie also comes across as a very likeable and believable character, who¿s afraid of the void in her memory, and who¿s desperately trying to cope up with the rapidly changing circumstances. The gradual progress of this duo from utter strangers, to acquaintances, to friends and finally to lovers makes fascinating reading, tinged as it with melancholy, love and even a hint of mystery. There are plenty of side characters too such as the endearing servants of the estate, Neil and many others as convincing as the lead pair and who all conspire to play matchmaker with delightful and mischievous results. The story takes place in Adam¿s beautiful country estate rather than the glittering ballrooms of London, as is usual in Regency stories. Especially interesting are the bits of herbal remedies that pepper the narrative. ...................All in all, `Song from the Sea¿ is a beautifully written, absorbing and complex Regency historical that will compel the reader to read it in one go and is bound to leave them with a vast sense of happiness and fulfillment upon turning the very last page. Absolutely charming and captivating!

    Invigorating historical romantic suspense

    In 1818 Lord Adam Carlyle rows his boat in the Channel planning to die as far from England as possible. The distraught aristocrat¿s only pleasure is to thwart his odious cousin by delaying the declaration of inheriting Stanton Abbey. However, his rowboat fails to sink even in a nasty storm and though tired he sees a siren sent overboard from a nearby ship. The siren is knocked unconscious but Adam rescues her....................... Her father sent Callie Melbourne back to England to meet her fiancé Harold Carlyle selected for her by her dad. Now she awakens in a stranger¿s home suffering from amnesia. While Adam helps Callie physically heal, she aids him with his mental healing. As they fall in love, his odious cousin Harold recognizes Callie as his fiancé. Adam, who vowed never to love again, risks his soul because his beloved Callie must never be under the thumb of Harold................... SONG FROM THE SEA is an exciting Regency romance though readers will not accept the hero¿s attempt to commit suicide (sort of like Lethal Weapon I). Adam is too courageous and too contemptible of his cousin to kill himself even though he felt he had nothing to live for when two cherished people recently died. Callie is a delight from the moment Adam sees her as a sea siren while Harold is too nasty to accept as a rival. Still sub-genre fans will appreciate Kaherine Kingsley¿s invigorating historical romantic suspense.................. Harriet Klausner

    Loved it!

    Callista Melbourne was raised by her father and grew up on the Greek island of Corfu. To honor part of her father's dying wish, she set sail for England. She would meet the man her father wanted her to marry. However, she planned to defy his request of matrimony. She had enough money to live independently and was determined to do so. Shortly before her ship was to land, she was swept overboard during a raging storm and woke up with amnesia. .......... Adam Carlyle, Fifth Marquess of Vale, had lost his wife and son in a hunting "accident". The guilty party had never been found. It had been almost two years and Adam had sunk into deep depression. He was ready to end his life by rowing into a storm. Instead he ended up rescuing a lovely young woman from the sea. ........... She called herself Calliope when she came around. Yet she told next to nothing of her past. Somehow these two, with a little help from Nigel, would heal each other. The only real problem was the scheming fortune hunter that her father had sent her to marry would soon show up. .......... **** Author Katherine Kingsley has written another wonderful tale to enthrall her fans. As always, the heroine is strong-willed instead of threatening to faint at the smallest problem. A smooth flowing romance that I am happy to recommend! ****
