Ceannas, a selkie warrior, must protect his clan during the Migration, a rite of passage that occurs every 50 years. When he discovers a runaway selkie, the daughter of his Prince, he must figure out a way to divide his duties, especially when keeping her alive demands all his attention.

And what will it cost each of them to do so?

Guest Review by Sal

Taking place in 1861 in the Hebrides Islands off the coast of Scotland, ‘Saving the Selkie’s Heart,’ is an adventurous romance with a paranormal twist.  

Lyall is a young woman who has just received an inheritance that she was not expecting. That inheritance? The knowledge that her parents, whom she previously thought were just a normal, hard-working couple, are actually selkies. Selkies are mythological creatures who have the ability to transform into seals simply by putting on their seal skin.  

Taken aback by this discovery, Lyall soon realizes that she must be a selkie herself, but when she fails to transform into a seal on her first try, she worries that she is a failure, unable to carry on her family’s important legacy.  

Compounding this worry is the revelation that her father, Lord Prion, a banished former prince in their selkie kingdom, has developed a fatal sickness. Determined to find a way to cure him, Lyall decides to travel to visit the Great Elder, the most honored and wise of the selkie clan who may just know how to help her father.  

However, in order to get to the Great Elder, Lyall will have to enlist the help of one of her father’s most trusted soldiers, Ceannas. After getting off to a rough start, Lyall will have to deal with Ceannas’s brash attitude and sarcastic nicknames for her if she wishes to get close to the Great Elder. But, through working together, the two come to notice an attraction so strong that it just might be the foundation for something much, much more.  

Having read the first book in Ella Rose’s ‘The Selkie Seas’ series, I knew I was going to love this one, and I was not disappointed! This is one that I think any reader will enjoy, regardless of their familiarity with the series. Five stars!
