School teacher Lucy Hunter tried all her life to be a “good girl” and fit into her dysfunctional family. Oldest brother Dylan left with their mother when he was thirteen, causing her father to find solace in alcohol. Middle brother Caleb raised Lucy but when he left for college, Lucy found herself alone. Recently both Caleb and newly returned Dylan have married and formed new families again leaving Lucy on the outs.

While working in her class’ garden, Lucy looks up and can’t help but be in awe of the strikingly handsome man who is watching her. He introduces himself as a “friend” of Dylan’s. When Lucy takes the stranger to Dylan, once again Lucy finds herself on the outs as her family orders her out of the room so as they can “discuss” the stranger and what he wants from them.

Conn ap Llyr is the prince of the Selkie, an ancient race of powerful sea creatures that keep the peace between their realm and the demons of Hell. Recently the rifts that open allowing the demons through have been too much for Conn and his wardens to control and his people have been attacked, even murdered. Their island home of Sanctuary will soon crumble if the demons are not stopped, so Conn goes in search of the one who can help him save his race. The long ago prophesy says only a daughter of the sea witch Artagatis can help revitalize the Selkie race and defeat the demons. Conn has had visions of Lucy Hunter for months and knows she is the one! Only through his erotic guidance can the Sea Lord bring forth the power deeply buried in Lucy and stop the demons once and for all!

Virginia Kantra writes a fast moving sensuous tale in her third book of the Children of the Sea series, Sea Lord. Quiet loner Lucy Hunter knows that something about the sea and her fear of it can change her, so she suppresses it. Conn ap Llyr can bring forth Lucy’s magic. But it is the simple Lucy with her loving kindness that turns the tables on Conn, and after centuries of solitude gifts to Conn the one thing he has never had, love. Five roses once again go to Virginia Kantra for Sea Lord!
