Cast adrift on the Indian Ocean, eighteen-year-old Maria is saved by the crew of the steamship Trevessa.
She can’t tell them her tragic tale, so the superstitious sailors make up their own stories – and some would sacrifice her to the seas to save themselves from the coming storm.
Scottish engineer William McGregor boarded the Trevessa in search of adventure. He finds a crew convinced their ship is cursed, as he fights to protect the mysterious girl and bring her safely to shore.
When the sharks start circling and the storm closes in, are sirens more than just a myth?
Lee Ann’s Review
I’ve received this book from the author for an honest review.
“My defiance was futile. What did it get me? A small raft drifting across the Indian Ocean, with nothing but the sound of waves and the smell of salt and coal smoke.
Smoke meat a ship. I was saved.
I squinted into the sunlight, but the waves hid the vessel from me. Maybe I was looking the wrong way. I didn’t have the strength to sit up and see. Rough hands seized me. I struggles, but my weakness won. Blue eyes drifted above, the same color as the ocean below. A tangle of wiry seaweed obscured the rest of the man’s face. “It’s all right, lass. I’ll take care of you.” Darkness too me first.”
This is a great book to begin the series! Demelza Carlton leaves you wanting more, in fact if I had the next book I would read it next. Can love reunite even over oceans? Can you fall in love with someone within a weeks time? 4 stars a must read!
