The Lure of Shapinsay Giveaway!

❤ The delightful Krista Holle, author of all things romance, is offering up a great giveaway package containing swag to promote her historical eBook, The Lure of Shapinsay, which was published in December!

Krista's debut novel is a unique paranormal romance dealing with the very old Scottish mythology of the selkies. Selkies are beautiful seal men and women who live the bulk of their life under the water as seals, but they occasionally shed their skins to come on land as humans. The men are notorious for luring women to their deaths deep beneath the sea. Here's the official blurb:

Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water’s edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant.

Kait is woken unexpectedly by a beautiful selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure.

She obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?
Sound yummy, or what? There are already a bunch of awesome reviews of it on Goodreads, so be sure to check out what those readers have to say. Also take a look at the book trailer, which makes me want to read the book even more!
