Description
From the bestselling author of Twenty Boy Summer, a talented singer loses her ability to speak after a tragic accident, leading her to a postcard-perfect seaside town to find romance.The youngest of six talented sisters, Elyse d&;Abreau was destined for stardom&;until a boating accident took everything from her. Now, the most beautiful singer in Tobago can&;t sing. She can&;t even speak. Seeking quiet solitude, Elyse accepts a friend&;s invitation to Atargatis Cove. Named for the mythical first mermaid, the Oregon seaside town is everything Elyse&;s home in the Caribbean isn&;t: an ocean too cold for swimming, parties too tame for singing, and people too polite to pry&;except for one. Christian Kane is a notorious playboy&;insolent, arrogant, and completely charming. He&;s also the only person in Atargatis Cove who doesn&;t treat Elyse like a glass statue. He challenges her to express herself, and he admires the way she treats his younger brother, Sebastian, who believes Elyse is the legendary mermaid come to life. When Christian needs a first mate for the Cove&;s high-stakes Pirate Regatta, Elyse reluctantly stows her fear of the sea and climbs aboard. The ocean isn&;t the only thing making waves, though&;swept up in Christian&;s seductive tide and entranced by the Cove&;s charms, Elyse begins to wonder if a life of solitude isn&;t what she needs. But changing course again means facing her past. It means finding her inner voice. And scariest of all, it means opening her heart to a boy who&;s best known for breaking them&;
