Ashes on the waves

By Mary Lindsey

“A sexy gothic romance based on Edgar Allan Poe’s “Annabel Lee” ”

I first read about this book some time back and marked it as one to watch out for. I discovered the trailer for it which is only a few weeks old and it only makes me want to read the book more even more now.

It really has a haunting, Gothic atmosphere with impressive sound effects.  The cover is  superb.  I love the colours and even the font used in the title. There is a strong sense of movement and tragedy all exposed to the reader.


Thanks to Penguin for this blurb who explain it far better than I could.

“Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever.

With Anna, Liam finally finds the happiness he has always been denied, but the violent, mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it, have other plans. They make a wager on the couple’s love, testing its strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in danger of being destroyed.”
So excited about this one!
