Book Description

***The first book in an enchanting trilogy by a USA Today Bestselling author*** 
.
***Gold Medal Winner of the 2013 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards Contest***
.
American doctor Tara Moore wants to disappear. On the run from an abusive husband, she seeks shelter on a windswept Irish island and dismisses the villagers' speculation that she is descended from a selkie--a magical creature who is bewitching the island. But when a ghostly woman appears to her with a warning, Tara realizes it was more than chance that brought her to this island. Desperate to escape a dark and dangerous past, she struggles against a passionate attraction to handsome islander, Dominic O'Sullivan. But the enchantment of the island soon overpowers her and she falls helpless under its spell. Caught between magic and reality, Tara must find a way to wield both when a dangerous stranger from her past arrives, threatening to destroy the lives of everyone on the island.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sophie Moss' sweet rendering of relationships are reminiscent of Nora Roberts. If you've enjoyed Nora Roberts' Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy or Three Sisters Island Trilogy, I definitely recommend Sophie Moss' paranormal romance series, The Seal Island Trilogy." ~ TopList-BestFictionBooks.com

"Moss is an exceptional writer and she demonstrates this with a silky smooth plotline that flows effortlessly from page to page..." ~ BestChickLit.com

"...a hauntingly beautiful mythological adaptation." ~ Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite

5.0 out of 5 stars An Enthralling Read! February 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this book! The story was captivating and the characters interesting. The writing is superb. I thought the author handled the delicate issue of domestic abuse very well. It was nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat reading that last quarter of the book. This is one author whose future books I will look forward to reading. Highly recommend! If you like a good romance with some otherworld magic thrown into the mix, then this book will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! December 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a great first novel for Ms. Sophie Moss. Get swept away to Ireland for a fun story full of romance, adventure, happy endings and myths. I couldn't put it down once I started. The imagery was delightful and the characters full and realistic. Hope there is a series and that other characters in the book like Caitlin and Glenna have their own romances told!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Irish folk legend come to life March 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not included in description, sexual situations. This was a really neat combination of modern (sometimes harsh) reality/romance mixed with fantasy/folk legend. I just wish I had read all of the reviews thoroughly since someone did mention it, there is more sensual (well, descriptive sex) content than I am comfortable with. I've deleted it and am disappointed because it would have been a pretty good story without that. This is not a criticism of those who don't mind, just a word to those who like clean reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars This tale captivates March 13, 2012
By H.Sue
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sophie Moss has written a story that captures the magic of Ireland and the charm of the sparsely-populated, remote islands off its west coast. This is a contemporary tale, complete with a mythical selkie, a woman fleeing an abusive, deranged husband and, of course, a handsome pub owner who just happens to be the single father of a charming daughter. Although it's not difficult to guess the story's outcome, Moss keeps the suspense high and throws in some surprising twists. She also brings her secondary characters to life and I won't be surprised to find them the focus of the next book in her Seal Island trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars, great, quick read April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tara's running away from her past and she decides to go to Seal Island, hoping to find a quiet place to stay for a couple of weeks to gather her thoughts and plan her next move. Of course, she finds more than she bargained for there...legend, friendship...romance...enough to make her reconsider her path, enough to make her want to stay.

I found this book to be quite well-written. The plot made sense, the twists and turns didn't seem too far-fetched. The book was a little shorter than I would've liked and I think the author could've fleshed out some of the characters and parts of the story a little more. The book moved quickly and unlike some books, I didn't find any part of it that really dragged on. In many books I've found myself skipping page after page because they don't really add anything extra to the story and don't hold any important information. In other words, they're material that a good editor would probably have cut out. This book didn't have any of that. Like I said, parts of it could've used a little MORE detail that would only have added to the story but overall I found it to be quite an easy, fast-paced read.

Reading some of the lower ratings I was surprised that people thought this was overly graphic. There were a couple of sex scenes but they weren't out of place and, for me, added to the relationship and therefore, the story. I have certainly read books where sex scenes happened often enough that I would start skipping them so the story could continue, this wasn't like that. The couple of scenes that did occur were done well and didn't drag on, nor were they any more graphic (actually, I think they were less graphic) than any other similar scene in other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrical Irish Romance with Haunting Ambience February 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Selkie Spell is a lovely and lyrical Irish romance with a haunting ambience that clings to your heart long after you finish the last page, making you feel as though you've just taken a trip to an enchanted island! Ms. Moss' prose is carefully wrought and often stunning in its poetic beauty, and she creates characters who you can't help but feel for. However, it is her ghostly figure from the past, a Selkie woman who haunts the island and seeks to be freed from her dark curse, that most tugged at my heartstrings. Tara/Sydney, her descendent, gets caught up in the web of this legend that unknowingly impacts her life as well, and Moss weaves their stories intricately together so that their fates become inseperable and riveting. Part romance, part mystery, part fairy tale, this is a novel that takes several genres and gently threads them together for an overall satisfying read. Hopefully, Moss will continue her enchantment with the beguiling character of Glenna, whose timely "visions" and ability to charm strangers makes her a character that readers can't help but adore. A lovely debut!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful read that will captivate you from the start! December 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once you start The Selkie Spell, be prepared to clear your calendar because you won't be able to put it down! From the first chapter the author had my attention, and her ability to keep me engrossed did not waver. Sophie Moss has a way with words. Her vidid descriptions -- ranging from scenery, to thoughts and perspectives, to the legend of the selkie -- truly brings the writing and characters to life. Additionally, the plot itself is fascinating. The way she is able to weave multiple offshoots of the plot, yet still make sure everything connects, only enhanced my interest and made my need to finish grow! If you are looking for a truly enjoyable read, you cannot go wrong with this book!
