Ross Galloway is ready for a new life away from Yachats, Oregon. All he needs for his plans to fall into place is a little money and a lot of luck. He gets his break when he discovers something out of this world on one of his dives – a real live mermaid. His plans to cash in on his discovery don’t work out quite the way he plans when Magna, the woman he recognizes as his mermaid, gives him an unexpected gift — a magic shell. Swept overboard by the spell contained within the shell, he surfaces in a strange, bizarre world.

Princess Gem LaBreeze is an Elemental, a powerful species that can control the elements around them. Transformed to stone to protect her from the evil threatening the Isle of the Elementals, she is awakened by a man from another world — a stranger who is as arrogant and uncouth as he is unpredictable.

Gem and Ross, forced together in a desperate race against time, learn that opposites can attract and that sometimes the roughest surface hides the tenderest of hearts. Can an unlikely hero and a lone woman survive the traps created to stop the Sea Witch before the new moon or will the Isle of Elementals fall back to the ocean below and disappear beneath the waves?


Twenty minutes later, Ross was cussing up a storm again, this time very loudly. He was hot, unbearably thirsty, and his thighs and calves were killing him. This cliff was like a Stairmaster from hell. He looked up and released a long wheezing hiss. A low groan slipped from him when he realized he was only about half way up and still had a long way to go before he reached the top.

Maybe I’ll be lucky and there will be a water fountain at the top of the cliff; or better yet, a beer kiosk, he thought with a bitter sigh of frustration. Turning and pressing his back against the rough rock, he gazed out at the ocean again. His eyes widened in trepidation, and he forgot about everything when he suddenly realized that he really wasn’t on Earth – at least not any Earth that he recognized. The evidence was so overwhelming he could barely speak. “Aw hell, Ross. You really are in deep shit this time. The question is – how deep a pile will it be?” he murmured to himself as he studied the edge of this world.

            Sorry to be a real pain, but has it been released. Really looking forward to reading it

          4. S.E. Smith says:

            LOL. You aren’t a pain. Yes, the characters are still talking —- and so is my hubby who I am trying really hard to get to understand that I can’t write and talk at the same time. He asked me the other day how I get anything done with him constantly interrupting me. I told him I have absolutely no idea. Then he gives me this puppy dog look and a grin and says he’ll leave me alone only to be back 30 seconds later. All I can do is shake my head and try to find a corner where he can’t see me for a few hours. On a good note, the story is in edits!

          5. S.E. Smith says:

            Not yet. I’m shooting for a December 10th release. Fingers crossed I can find a woman cave to hide in.

          6. Noel says:

            Released yet

          7. S.E. Smith says:

            Hi Noel!! Yes, today!! It ended up being a lot longer than I was expecting but totally worth it. I hope you enjoy Ross and Gem’s story.

  2. Susan Mort says:

    What is “The Magic Shell” about and who does it feature?

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Susan. The Magic Shell is Ross Galloway’s story. He is the bad-boy fisherman that was under suspicion for Carly, Jenny, and even Mike’s disappearance and saw Magna when she was underwater. He is now up to his eyeballs in a magical realm and is the last person to think of himself as a hero.

  3. Carrie says:

    Can’t wait to see Ross’s story!

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      I’m editing it now and laughing. I love this world!

  4. Stacy says:

    Will there be an audio book for Ruth and Ross’s books??? I’ve been looking but have yet to find them…… Please please please tell me they are just delayed in recording and not that you have decided not to release them in audio!!!???!!! I don’t have time to sit and read anymore and audio books while I drive is my only option for escaping into your world’s (all of which are fantastic! The only reason I don’t have something you wrote is because it isn’t on audio! Lol) so please let me know! Thanks Stacy Lee

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Stacy, both Ruth and Ross have been sent to the narrator! They are in pre-production at the moment. I’m working with a different distributor with them so it is taking a touch longer to organize things, but David should get both books at the same time to do. Saving Runt has finally been completed and her and Rescuing Mattie’s story are being scheduled to be released as I type. I have plans to continue having all of my stories in audiobooks! I tend to write faster than they can produce, LOL, but I get them in for production as soon as possible.
