What are Selkies? In long ago Scotland, seals were a very common sight across the Ornkey islands. These shape-shifters had the ability to transform from seals into beautiful, lithe humans.
Our story is about the life of a tiny infant found abandoned on the church steps of a small fishing town in the Ornkey islands. The townsfolk knew her father well, a very successful fisherman, who was killed in a boating accident at sea. The townsfolk cannot understand how her beautiful mother, a stranger to the town, could just abandon her lovely daughter. No one saw the woman place her daughter on the church steps and then sneak to the ocean, the night after her husband's death, carrying a small bundle of seal fur.
When a mysterious Russian Prince happened to view the beautiful Cassandra standing at the railing of the ship, he falls in love with her on first sight. Determined to protect her, Dmitri foils the horrendous plans her father has and takes the young woman under his protection.
Cassandra cannot help but notice that something is not quite normal in Dmitri's castle. Even with the mystery surrounding her, she begins to fall for the handsome man who is now her guardian.
After a nearly fatal accident, Dmitri has no choice but to reveal his dark secret. Now, Cassandra must decide if she is willing to give up her soul for the man who has already staked a claim on her heart!
I am still working on the synopsis - it should be available soon.
