?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

A terrible mistake haunts college student Olivia Spencer. To escape the past, she travels to the Mediterranean island of Crete, hoping for the courage to start anew.

By the sea, she meets sexy and enigmatic Kai. But there’s more to Kai than meets the eye – and nobody wants to talk about it. The locals shun him, accusing him of magic. Kai, apparently, belongs to the sea, no matter how crazy that sounds.

Kai isn’t free to be with her or live his own life, and this is how he will stay, unless Olivia can break his curse and save him – in doing so atoning for those she wasn’t able to save in the past.

What is New Adult?

A novel is considered New Adult if it encompasses the transition between adolescence—a life stage often depicted in Young Adult (YA) fiction—and true adulthood. Protagonists generally fall between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six and are often portrayed experiencing college, living away from home for the first time, military deployment, apprenticeships, a first steady job, a first serious relationship, etc.

Where does the story play out?

The story takes place on Crete, an island of Greece, in the Mediterranean:
