Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water's edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant.

Kait is woken unexpectedly by a beautiful, naked selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure.

She obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?

About the Author

Krista has been writing since she was nine years old when she first scribbled out her first adolescent work entitled Merish, the completely illogical story of a girl who was part mermaid, part fish. As a young mother, she added to her repertoire some middle-grade readers and picture books.

In 2004, she began an intensive four-year period working part-time as a critical care nurse while homeschooling her four children. During this hectic time, courses of writing were taught and learned, and rules of syntax were scolded to memory. This period of time equipped her with the tools needed to enter the next phase of her writing experience—writing novels.

She has since published two books. Her brand is historical, sometimes magical, with a fast-paced plot and a mandatory love story woven through. Her novel, The Lure of Shapinsay, was a finalist for the Reader’s Favorite Award.

She currently resides in Montpelier, Virginia with her husband in a nearly empty nest. When she’s not writing, she’s babying her very drooly Great Dane, or backpacking sections of the Appalachian Trail.
