Blogoversary (Review: The Lure of Shapinsay by @KristaHolle)

This Saturday will be my 2 year and a half blogoversary! Can you believe it?
For me this whole experience has been more than great! I've met great authors and bloggers. Also, I've read amazing books and fell in love with more than one character.
I'll be doing a lot of things to celebrate this event.
First: I will taking out the dust of old reviews (specially the first ones).
So here's the first review that was posted in the blog.

The Lure of Shapinsay
Title: The Lure of Shapinsay
Author: Krista Holle
Release Date: December 16th 2011 
Format: Paperback & Ebook
Publisher: Sweet River Romance

Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water’s edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant.
Unexpectedly, Kait is awoken by a beautiful, selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure.
Kait obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?

A simply way to describe this story could be just label it like a "Love story". But it's much more than that. We all adore love stories and that's because love stories are always full with emotions, and those who includes fantastic creatures are even more breathtaking... This story made me hold my breath more than once. I really love this story because it introduces us to a new kind of creature: the selkies!

The selkies are described like beautiful men that lure human women and everything in them is atractive! Their story is very interesting, and I believe that Krista made a wonderful job describing their origins. And particularly, the Selkie man in this story is incredible! it's imposible not to love him and everything that happens to him and Katie feels like a roller coaster.

It's easy to feel related to the love that they share because that's what love is... is like an enchantment that blinds us from the rest of the world. It makes us feel that the only place we can be happy is next to the one we love. And sometimes we feel like we've been lure and even the mere presence of the other person causes us real pain.

That's why this book is so great, they have to deal with a lot of obstacles, some of them very common for most couples and some related to the nature of their species.

A great story recomendable for everyone who likes a great romance involving humans and fantastic creatures.
