Secrets of the sea have never been sexier than this.
Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.
But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He wont tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway and discovers that Christian has secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm.
Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.
This sounds like a contemporary read at first, but I hope there are mermaids! It says “sea witch.” It reminds me of The Little Mermaid..haha Ursuala. Anyway this looks like a cute read. That cover is hot don’t you think?
