A Thousand Salt Kisses Later + Giveaway

Book Description:The spellbinding sequel to A Thousand Salt Kisses.

Four years ago, Crystal White fell in love with Llyr, a prince of the magical mer colony living off the coast of Starfish Island. For one summer, he enchanted her with stories of jeweled palaces and underwater gardens, but then he left, returning beneath the waves with her heart in tow.

Now, graduated and with no job in sight, Crystal is forced to go back to the island she thought she had left in the past. By the sea again, she realizes she is far from over her first love, and when an opportunity arises to contact the merfolk, Crystal can’t resist.

Once more with the mer, Crystal is forced to come to terms with the fact that Llyr has moved on, and also with her own magical secret that has endangered her life, his throne, and every mer kingdom. Working against all odds, she has to try to save the people she has come to love and—if she can—rekindle the romance of her first summer on Starfish Island.

My Review

After the first book and the way I felt about it I really had no want to read the second one. However, I had committed to reading it. So, you can imagine my surprise when I actually found myself liking this book. I found it to be way better than the first. Sometimes the sequel are better than the first.

Crystal was more grown up, so she did not come off as childish. The writing also helped to support this factor by not repeating the obvious. In addition, the story moved along quicker. There was a nice surprise as well in this story that helped to lend itself to the ending. What I enjoyed the most about this book is that I got to see and experience Llyr's world. Although, he did come off as a jerk. I felt sorry for Crystal. A good improvement from the first book.

Your book is set in the Westcountry, UK.  Have you ever been there?

Yes, I go there nearly every summer. It is a mystical, magical place and many a mermaid is said to have been spotted from its cliffs!

Describe your series in one sentence. Is it going to continue?

The Salt Kisses books are a fast-paced, epic ‘mermance’ about a sweet sensitive young girl and a hot mysterious man – who just so happens to spend an awful lot of time in the sea! Yes, seven books – one for each sea! I’m writing the draft for Book 5 on now and book Three ‘A Thousand Salt Kisses Forever’ will be out in the summer. ‘A Thousand More Salt Kisses’ to follow.

Do you snack while writing? Favourite snack?

Yes, I am extremely in love with sushi and I think this is reflected in the Thousand Salt Kisses books. The mers in the books prepare and eat fish in a way which Crystal - the main human character - says is just like sashimi.

Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?
No, thankfully I’ve never had this. But I do suffer from the opposite which is having so much to write and not enough time!

What is your next project?

I’m going to start the editing process for the third Thousand Salt Kisses book, ‘A Thousand Salt Kisses Forever’, which is out next summer, and a new adult book called Shallot, about a rock n roll couple and a pre-Raphaelite ghost. It’s inspired by the Tennyson poem and I’m working on this now.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?

I always love this question! So many places, but if I had to pick somewhere I’d go back to the Robin Hood days. When I was little I used to try to build a time machine with my Meccano, so I could go back in time and meet Maid Marion and Robin Hood.
