Book Description

18 Aug 2012
A NEW NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF TROPICAL KISS! Killian knows all about vampires and aliens. They’re not real. But when a handsome swimmer climbs into her storm-tossed boat an hour from her summer destination, the worlds of fantasy and reality suddenly collide… Cuttylea Island has no mall, no social scene, and no action. But it does have a mysterious stone tower, ageless islanders, and a secret as astonishing as a mermaid’s tale… Before the summer is through, Killian will find the truth of her family’s past…and the role she is destined to play in a centuries-old curse. CHAPTER 1 No cell phone service. No cable TV. No mall. No bars. No party scene. No Internet. No Facebook. No traffic to throw yourself in front of. “What,” Killian muttered, “am I getting myself into?” Looking around in every direction from the small motor launch, she could see nothing. Darkness covered the Atlantic like the wing of some enormous black bird. No moon, no stars, no welcoming ray from any lighthouse or passing ship. Only an occasional lightning flash lit the invisible horizon before being instantly snuffed out. The damp wind was cold. Killian pulled her Green Mountain Academy sweatshirt more tightly around her. She’d graduated only two weeks ago, but it felt like forever. She stared up at the silent old man at the wheel of the boat. In the darkness he was little more than a hunched silhouette, a pipe clenched in his teeth. “How long before we reach Cuttylea Island?” she called out to him. Thomas Eliot turned and looked back at her. Killian couldn’t see his eyes, but saw his hand dip into his jacket pocket. He stuffed something into the pipe. With practiced skill he produced a lighter from somewhere. He lit the pipe again, revealing the deep lines of his weathered face. “How long?” he replied finally. The end of the pipe glowed as he puffed. The smell of the tobacco whipped by her, mingling with the briny scent of the sea and fish and old bait. “An hour. Tops.” Everything that Killian feared was conspiring against her to-night. Night. Water. The distant lightning threatening ominously. She stared into the darkness to where ocean and sky ground together, producing those muffled flashes of light. The storm was approaching. She hated electrical storms. The thought of being caught in one—out on the open sea in this ancient floating coffin—held no appeal for her.... Suddenly, the boat rocked as the driver cut the speed. “What’s wrong?” Without a word, the old man swung the wheel and gunned the engine. The boat carved a sharp arc, forcing Killian to grip the side to keep from sliding off the bench. As they came around, Thomas was peering just ahead and then over the side. Killian turned in her seat, looking down into the water. Then he cut the engines. Her great aunt trusted this man. She’d sent him to Hyannis to get her. Or at least this was what Thomas had told Killian on the dock. Her mind now started questioning even that. She peered over the side, following his gaze. Suddenly, a hand shot up from the dark waters. Before she could move, it was gripping the edge. Their fingers touched. Killian gasped and sprang backward. But there was nowhere to go. She tripped over her pack, landing hard against the bench running along the other side. Her heart raced. The hand had been warm. Dead bodies don’t reach up out of the water. The boat rocked sharply. When she straightened and turned around, Killian was astounded to see a young man, a head taller than Thomas, standing in the boat. She sank down onto the bench. The old man had draped a blanket over the swimmer’s shoulders. His eyes were fixed on her. Killian felt her face flush hot under his steady gaze. Then the newcomer ducked down into the cabin space in the bow. Thomas moved back behind the wheel and revved up the engines. The boat leapt forward, cutting through the waves. “Who…who is that?” “That’s Perth.”

5.0 out of 5 stars There's MORE to come! 3 Sep 2012
By Nomi House - Published on
Just finished this today! And let me say "YAAAAAAY!" We are about to have an awesome mini-series on our hands people! The book was intriguing from the beginning, even though it moved a little slow a first, I was hooked. This story line is a lot more complex and enchanting than Tropical Kiss, giving the story alot more depth. I kept thinking they were going to turn into mermaids!(They didn't.) Jan Coffey is an awesome inventor of dreamy, hot, irresistibly charming guys. All of the characters are well developed and in the case of this book sometimes mysterious. Killian(lead female) is NOT annoying, she's smart, intuitive, and doesn't mind being the wall flower. Perth(lead male) is... well, he's just sizzling hot. I can honestly say I'm am thrilled and cannot wait to read the next two books when they come out! Recommended for ages 14 and up :)

5.0 out of 5 stars exhilarating storytelling 7 Sep 2012
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Teenager Killian feels alone as her mom died a few years ago and her dad ignoring her remarried. When she graduates from the Green Mountain Academy in Vermont, her maternal great Aunt Hannah Winthrop invites her to stay at Cuttylea Island with her; she accepts in spite of the isolation with Hyannis being three hours away by boat and limited electronic access.

In a storm, a frightened Killian, who cannot swim, sails in a small boat when the driver picks up Perth, an Olympic Gold medal quality swimmer. Hannah welcomes her niece who will work at the nearby inn. Killian is attracted to Perth, but as a wallflower accepts he is out of her league. When she hears a mother's plea to rescue her children, Killian is confused as the woman is dead. Meanwhile Perth confuses her as he seems to like her before instantly turning into a grouch. However, Killian becomes concerned when Dr. Davenport and a team arrive ostensibly to study wind energy, but asks questions about Perth's wheelchair bound father Walter. Wondering what is going on with elderly Lynx warning her to leave, Dr. Davenport's inquiry and what the birthmark on her lower back has to do with pentagrams inside older abodes. Killian seeks the truth.

Aquarian is an exhilarating young adult paranormal mystery that will have the audience wondering like the heroine what is happening at Cuttylea Island. The storyline starts leisurely as the heroine's personality and the island setting of "no cell phone service; no cable TV; no mall ... and no Facebook" are established. Once done, the plot turns into a fascinating tale as Killian begins to learn the dangerous truth about her ancestry and that of Perth.
