~"Your book is beautiful, Katy. It's the perfect balance of sweet and sexy. I love the writing. I love the characters. You have me sighing like a damn teenager." - Leylah Attar, New York Times bestselling author of The Paper Swan
From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.
A fisherman's daughter.
The governor's son.
Two very different worlds.
In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman's daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of North Carolina's governor at a fancy party where she's working.
Laire, who wants so much more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.
Years later, when fate leads them back to one another, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.
