This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A mysterious castaway. A Scottish hero determined to protect her. Can they survive the storm?
Cast adrift on the Indian Ocean, Maria carries a terrible secret. Wherever she goes, death soon follows, and she's powerless to prevent it.
William McGregor boarded the SS Trevessa in search of adventure, but he gets more than he bargained for when he saves the mysterious Maria from the sea. She can't tell them her tragic tale, so the superstitious sailors make up their own stories - and some would sacrifice her to the waves to save themselves from the coming storm.
When the sharks start circling and the storm closes in, are sirens more than just a myth?
A tiny taste of what's in store:
My defiance was futile. What did it get me? A small raft drifting across the Indian Ocean, with nothing but the sound of waves and the smell of salt and coal-smoke.
Smoke meant a ship. I was saved.
I squinted into the sunlight, but the waves hid the vessel from me. Maybe I was looking the wrong way. I didn't have the strength to sit up and see.
Rough hands seized me. I struggled, but my weakness won.
Blue eyes drifted above, the same colour as the ocean below. A tangle of wiry seaweed obscured the rest of the man's face.
"It's all right, lass. I'll take care of you."
Darkness took me first.

I received an ARC from Reading Deals Review Club in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I have read by Demelza Carlton as well as my first Mermaid mythology novella! I was swept up in the magic, mystery and romance of Maria and William's story in this first book of the Ocean's Gift - Turbulence and Triumph Series. A unique and absolutely entertaining adventure that will continue in Book 2! I highly recommend this book!
It was a great read.
This wonderful story wasted no time pulling me in. The emotions of the main character were felt deeply as I read further and further into the book. Of course romance starts to flourish as well as a few evil intentions from others. This writer did an amazing job compelling me through page by page until the conclusion. Was there an H E A? Is there a cliffhanger? All I will tell you is that it does reach a conclusion, and that you will also want to read the next in the series!
