The Sea King's Lady
A Seven Kingdoms Tale, Book 2
The Sea King joins forces with a fiery young woman to defeat an evil force threatening his kingdom.
“I captured her, so that makes her ours….”
Jenny Ackerly is devastated when her best friend disappears without a trace. She vows to continue looking for Carly until she can bring her friend home once and for all. During her latest search, her determination turns to horror when she finds a young boy alone on the beach. When the boy enters the water, Jenny’s protective instincts ignite and she rushes to save the child from certain death. Caught in a powerful undertow, Jenny resurfaces in a magical, underwater world.
Orion is the powerful ruler of the Isle of the Sea Serpent and protector of the ocean, but time is running out for him. The Eyes of the Sea Serpent that give him power over the oceans has been stolen. If the loss of the magical stones was not enough of a burden, his oldest son’s bargain with the Sea Witch threatens to seal the devastating fate of the Merpeople – and possibly that of the Seven Kingdoms. He has all but given up hope until a fiery female from another world appears.
Can an unlikely alliance between Jenny and Orion save not only the life of a young boy but an entire Kingdom as well? It will take their combined wits and strengths to survive the evil lurking in the depths of the ocean.
Orion could feel Jenny tremble when he grasped her hand and guided her out of his living quarters. It was a crazy plan, one that he wasn’t sure would work. It was possible that Magna discovered that they had located and retrieved the eye she had stolen and demand that he turn over the Trident to her. He would have felt more confident that was the case if she had not also demanded that Dolph be present.
He slowed his pace when he heard Jenny draw in a deep breath. The grip she had on his hand was surprisingly strong. He winced and caressed his thumb across the back of her hand in reassurance. She shot him an apologetic smile and loosened her grip.
“Sorry, another nervous habit, I guess,” she murmured as they walked down one long corridor after another.
“I…,” Orion started to say before he stopped when he saw Kapian with Kelia and the boys by the entrance to the throne room. He paused a few feet away and turned to look down at her. Lifting a hand, he gently brushed it across her pale cheek. “There is a small room to the side when we enter. Wait there. If, and only if, I need you, I will call. I promise to do everything I can to not involve you in my family and my kingdom's troubles, Jenny.”
Jenny smiled up at him with a crooked grin. “No worries. Saving kingdoms are all in a day’s work. Just call Jenny’s Kingdom Savers. We run specials every Monday,” she joked before shaking her head in disgust. “I’ve totally lost my mind. Please, ignore me.”
Orion chuckled and leaned down to brush a tender kiss across her pursed lips. “Now where would the fun be in that?” he replied.
