Riptide by Susan Hayes + Giveaway





Genre: Paranormal Romance/Erotica

Rory Frazier is destined to be the next leader of Kismet Cove, a secret colony of seal shape-shifters known as selkies. The catch? Rory can only claim his birthright if he and his blood brother Evan Sinclair find a suitable mate.

Jessica Jones has come to Tofino to reclaim her life and move on from the grief of her mother’s death. Jess just wants time alone and space to heal, but kismet has something else in store. After a rogue wave sweeps her out into the frigid Pacific Ocean, Jess is rescued by two handsome men who heat her blood and help to heal her wounded heart.

Time’s running out for Rory and Evan. They need to present the colony with their chosen mate and tell Jess the truth about who they really are. When their secrets are finally revealed, will their newfound love survive, or will the emotional riptide tear the three of them apart forever?





So I'm a sucker for anything shifty.  When I saw this book was about selkies I knew I had to read it.  I've read about werewolves, bears, coyotes, leopards, even dragons, but never selkies.   Plus, the premise of the book sounded promising.  Basically what you've got is Jessica, an independent, successful female.  She heads to her family's cabin, which she has not been to since she was a child, to grieve the loss of her mother and figure out what she wants to do with her life.  Things don't go exactly as planned and soon she finds herself face to face with quite possibly the two sexiest guys alive – Rory and Evan. 

Jessica is a fun lead character.  I especially liked her because she was not some virginal priss who didn't know what was what in the bedroom.  She knew what she wanted and she was not afraid to go after it.  Of course she had reservations and hang-ups, and that is what made her character seem real.  Rory and Evan…holy hotness.  All I can say is where can I find a pair?

Worth mentioning is Jessica's fabulous best friend, Vivian, who we never actually get to meet during the course of the story, but we get a glimpse into her personality through Jessica's phone calls with her.  And then of course Tucker and Byron, selkie bar owners extraordinaire.  The reason I mention them is because they are full of incredibly sexy yumminess and the focus of book two in this series.  I can't wait!

So along with the great characters, there was a lot of fun and teasing in the story, and some very hot and sexy scenes with Jessica, Rory, and Evan.  I will say I knew very early on where the story was headed, but it didn't detract from the overall telling of the story, and it was a very enjoyable read.
