Sealing the Deal : Evil sea witch or slave to her namesake?
Deals go wrong all the time, it’s an occupational hazard. But one lovesick princess later and you’re left living in an uninhabitable sea with nothing but the dead to fill the void.
Uschi wasn’t what one could call the luckiest witch in the sea, but settling into a life of banishment and starting over from scratch is what she did best. It was the tentacle that she’d been dealt and she made it work.
But, when her shot at revenge and clearing her name all but falls into her lap in the form of four sexy selkie brothers on a mission, how can she possibly resist? Both the chance and the men.
Pantheons of gods and bitter lost loves, a raging madness consuming the seas. All things an evil sea witch should be able to handle… Right?
The peril and chaos pillaging the seas – and her heart – Uschi is prepared for, but love is more than she bargained for.
“The salt content was so high that nothing could live here, which was why it was called the Dead Sea. My beautiful tentacles would have shriveled up in the water if I didn’t have magic.
I used my tentacles to propel us through the water, headed towards the passage I’d made beneath the land to connect the Dead Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. There were a couple islands that had a few supernatural creatures living on them, and beyond that was several countries of humans.
I preferred to avoid humans, but sometimes they were necessary, since they had the best trade.
I swam through the narrow tunnel I’d made, glad I had smeared bioluminescent goo along the walls to allow me to see a little bit. As I swam, I determined I should add more because it was still a bit claustrophobic for me.
Not that I cared if anyone else could use it, actually I preferred if no one entered this tunnel at all. But I wanted to be comfortable.
Once on the other side, I swam to the island Cyprus.
“Stay nearby and behave,” I ordered Barny and Crusty.
They bobbed, brushed their scales against my face, and then zipped away to play.
I surfaced slowly, letting my eyes breach the water first, and then surveyed the shore.”
