They can steal her skin, but they cannot steal her heart.
Meara the selkie was captured in their fishing net. Gaskon and his three sons each desire to take her for a bride, but they'll have to steal her sealskin from her, the magical article that binds her to marriage with whichever man who owns it—even against her will.
As they fight over ownership of the sealskin, blood is spilled, and only one man may prove worthy of her affection. But how can they be together, when all she wants is to return to the sea?
An alluring dark fairy tale, fraught with menace, and based on the ancient lore of the selkie sealshifters.
