Arabella Angarrick leaned on the ship’s rail gazing at the spot on the horizon where the tip of Cornwall was lost from sight hours ago. She searched for the strains of the selkie’s song under the hiss of the sea against the ship, the rumble of engines, and the wind whining in the superstructure. Common sense told her she had far outdistanced the pod of selkies who gathered to wish her farewell, but she was reluctant to give up the tenuous grip on her homeland.
“Oh, Vear,” she whispered. “How am I going to live without you?” Her hands dropped to caress the still flat stomach beneath her coat. “I never had the chance to tell you about the baby. Maybe that’s for the best…” Her voice was lost in the wind and tears ran cold down her cheeks. The deck pitched underfoot forcing Arabella to clutch the rail.

4 **** An unusual fantasy romance
This was not the first book by Nancy Bell that I read so I knew I was in for something unconventional and she didn’t disappoint.
I haven’t read book 1 in the Arabella Secret’s series so that was probably why it took me a while to connect with the characters and their story. I also needed some time to adjust to the dream sequences. However, once I was on board with the story, I had a ball.
Like I said, it’s far from your normal, run-of-the-mill kind of romance novel. I mean, besides the obvious fantasy elements, the author’s approach to the love triangle plot and its resolution was quite refreshing. I’m sorry if I sound extremely cryptic but I honestly can’t say much about it without revealing spoilers, which I do not do so please forgive me.
I recommend this book for fans of fantasy romance with an open mind for unusual stories.
