Ophelia’s first love might be her last.

In her wildest dreams, Ophelia Montague never imagined she would leave the city, her friends, her school and move to a seaside village. But when her parents die in an accident, that’s just where she finds herself – ensconced in a rambling house on the beach, with her uncle, Sebastian, his boarder—19-year-old Adam Ferrier, and two Great Dane dogs named after shipwrecks.

By the ocean’s edge she meets Jack Denham who seems to command the sea and the moon—and if he has his way—Ophelia, too.

“This book was amazing. I devoured it up in two sittings although it would have been one if my eye hadn’t been an angry red from staring at a screen for so long and my head hadn’t been hurting from tiredness.” KittyKat, Goodreads

“This captivating story about loss, love, and sacrifice is absolutely gripping. Reminiscent of a siren’s story with a twist and is chock full of history cited with true accounts of the shipwreck the book is themed around, adding a whole new level of goosebumps while reading.”  Britney Robinson

“I loved this book. I loved the characters,the plot and the twists and turns.” Angel, Goodreads

“An amazing story. I am looking forward to reading the next book.” Riddhi, Goodreads
