Alexander MacCodrum belongs to a race of shape-shifting sea creatures living on Scotland’s Isle of Skye. When Jenna MacLeod unknowingly adds seven tears to the salt of the sea, she accidentally unleashes an ancient charm that catches the transformed Selkie unawares. Under this binding spell, Alex must win Jenna’s heart, or the pain of unrequited love will drive him to take his own life. Unfortunately for Alex, Jenna hasn’t come to Skye looking for love and it will take the force of a hurricane to bring them together. But worse, Jenna’s violent ex-boyfriend has found her at last and Carl has made it perfectly clear – if he can’t have her, no one can.
Rose Anderson writes beautifully every time, and Enchanted Skye is no different. She makes me believe in selkies, makes me want to BE a selkie, her descriptions of their legends and lives are so intimate and lovely. The selkie family — Alex, his brothers Lachlan and Gavin, and sister Beatrix are hysterically funny. Their joshing of each other is the kind of sibling chatter we all would have liked growing up and as adults. Jenna comes from America with her grandmother’s ashes and is drawn into this loving, boisterous family. Ms. Anderson’s use of Scottish dialect is wonderful, and it doesn’t interfere with your reading. It adds to the enjoyment. Between her way with words and her sensual love scenes, you are there in the book, in the scene. And speaking of her way with words, here are samples, “…nearly insatiable wonderment of new love.” And, “…the fact that she didn’t reject him filled his heart with unfathomable joy.” With the love and humor, there’s danger which is written so well and culminates in a wonderful, surprise ending. Enchanted Skye is an outstanding book.
