Selkie's Revenge(Orkney Selkies #2) by Rosanna Leo

On the beaches of Orkney, Scotland, an evil entity stalks mortal women. Machar “Mack” Kirk is a selkie man with a haunted past, one that has prompted him to become a hunter. He prowls the beaches at night, his arrows aiming for the finman who took his first love.

Beth Pedersen also watches the sea. The haunted widow has suffered losses of her own, ones that have crippled her into a state of stony grief. Beth can no longer feel, can no longer see color and life. Until the day Mack Kirk saves her from a mysterious foe, flooding her world with brightness and foreign temptation.

As Mack and Beth fight their inundating passion, the finman escalates his attacks. Before long, Mack realizes he’s not just playing Good Samaritan. He wants Beth, too, and will do anything to ensure his lover isn’t taken by the finman. But can he protect his mate from a monster with no soul?

Rosanna Leo's books take mythology and folklore and make it sexy, The Orkney Selkies series take the selkie legend from Irish and Scottish folklore of people who can shape shift in essence from seal to human. Selkie's Revenge is the second in the series but has been written as a stand alone and can be read as such.

Machar Kirk and Beth Pedersen the hero and heroine of Selkie's Revenge share similar tragic backgrounds with lost loves being taken from them by an evil being known as a finman. Mack is ready to find his mate but never thought he would find it in a human woman he saves from the finman. Beth never wants to love again it hurts to much, she has closed herself off to all emotions in an effort to stop the pain.

Ms. Leo masterfully takes a story of tragic loss and new found love and weaves a tale that is poignant at times and other times funny and when Mack and Beth finally get together it is fireworks and heat and spice. I loved we also met Mack's brothers to allow us to get to know them a bit before they may have their own books, they behave just like a large family does and should with ribbing and wrestling and supporting each other when they are in need.

This series is going on my automatic buy list, it's just that good.
