The waves of fate tossed him up on the shores of my solitude, and for the first time since the collision, I feel safe.
A man who swims in the ocean depths, fearing nothing. Mentally and physically fit. He wants me to talk again. Why would he understand that I’ve stayed protected from the heartlessness of humans only by remaining here on the abandoned shore of the Pacific Ocean? Hiding. Silent.
He’s rough. Bold. And insists that I call him “daddy”. But how can I when a horrible incident took my words away forever?
Beneath the steely surface lies a devoted and gentle heart that I don’t want to disappoint – one that needs to claim me as his.
No way am I going back to village with him so he can spoil me like he says I deserve. Even though his firm hand and punishments make me squirm, in a good way, this won’t work.
I’m an unusual girl, twenty years his junior, who earns her living selling shellfish. The laughingstock of Briarville. Eric doesn’t know about the deal I sealed for my aunt’s silence – an arrangement I’d ruin by showing my face in town.
His kisses set off a sharp, wild need in me, and I hope that mine tell him without speech that I love him.
He demands that I’m his. But I realize this desire burning between us won’t survive the ugly that flourishes where the people are.
