After becoming paralyzed in a boating accident, Claire Bishop preferred her secluded life at Seaborne rather than the noise and energy of New York. Though she was often lonely with just the housekeeper and a visiting nurse, Claire was resigned to her fate, though she still dreamed of a fulfilling life with a wonderful man. She spent her days sitting on the pier staring out over the water, trying to ignore her bitterness when she compared her present and pathetic self to the vibrant young girl she had been.
Morgan knew contact with humans was forbidden by Atlantean rule yet he was inexplicably drawn to the sad, lonely young woman he saw sitting outside every day, though he had to keep his feelings hidden, especially from his half-brother, Caddoc. Caddoc was insanely jealous of Morgan, crown prince to Poseidon’s throne, and would use this information to discredit Morgan in order to gain the throne himself. Ignoring Caddoc and the rules he had been raised with, Morgan came out of the sea and spoke to Claire, capturing her heart and fueling the desire he already felt for her. Could the Prince of Atlantis dare to take a human bride, flouting every Atlantean convention?
Claire’s determination to live as independently as possible was admirable, even though she was confined to a wheelchair. Morgan was strong and confident, but his attraction to Claire was the one thing that threatened his undoing. Their seemingly impossible love story was beautifully described and easily captured my attention. I look forward to reading more from Katherine Irons.
