The haunting and usually tragic myth
of the selkie is the launching point for Kantra's exciting new paranormal series, Children of the Sea. With a hero that epitomizes the word and a heroine only just uncovering her humanity, this story is an emotional journey of discovery and an intriguing launch into a compelling new series.

After being wounded in Iraq, being the police chief of a quiet Maine island is just what Caleb Hunter needs. Having been alone for decades following the death of her mate, selkie Margred is desperate for sex. Coming ashore, she meets Caleb, and after acknowledging their mutual attraction, they agree to meet for a date.

Caleb is disappointed when Margred disappears after their rendezvous, and when he discovers her being attacked by a man who seems to disappear into fire, he's alarmed. Devastated that a demon has destroyed her pelt, Margred fears she is now trapped on land. Why did the demon attack her, and can she convince Caleb of the truth of her claims? She must if they are to stop this killer demon. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jul., 273 pp., $7.99)
