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.


Arabella Dreams

by Nancy M. Bell


GENRE: Fantasy Romance



Arabella Angarrick is heartbroken. Exiled from her beloved Cornwall, she must come to terms with life on the Canadian prairies and her arranged marriage to D’Arcy Rowan. She struggles to reconcile herself to life on a remote ranch with a man she barely knows. He knows he’s getting a two for one deal and Bella is thankful he is happy to welcome her unborn child into his home. D’Arcy is a kind man, but try as she might, Bella just can’t bring herself to love him. Her heart still yearns for Vear Du, the father of her baby. Will she ever stop dreaming of the selkie?




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.

  1. Hey Nancy. I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA on the blog but it’s the last week of classes in the summer course I’m taking and things have been pretty crazy…
    I’m thrilled you like my work. It’s great compliment. 🙂 Thanks.
    Best of luck with the new release and keep them coming!


  2. Hi Becky, I write whenever I can snatch a few minutes. I have done a fair bit of it really late at night and early in the morning when I can be sure nothing else demands my attention. The animals come first in the daytime and other commitments, but I look at writing as a job and so have to give a fairly prominent place in the priority list. It’s certainly a job I love. Thanks for coming by and chatting. ,

  3. Hi, thanks for stopping by. I”m glad you liked the excerpt. This is part of the story of Laurel from Laurel’s Quest grandmother. It set things in motion for what happens in The Cornwall Adventures series.
