The Selkie Scandal by Rosalie Oaks
(Lady Diviner #1.5)
A royal ransom, a dangerous rescue, and the famous Beresford jam…
England, 1804: the Earl of Beresford has his morning interrupted by naked selkie royalty. The seal-woman in question wants Beresford to find her brother, the High Prince of Skerry, who has been taken hostage for two thousand guineas.
Lord Beresford knows the coast better than he knows his own cravat—but his wits alone may not be enough to stop a war and save a selkie prince from death. Thankfully, he also has a whole case of the famous Beresford Jam.
Who stole the seal prince? How will Beresford find him? And what really happened at the royal birthday party?
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author, for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This is a novella in the Lady Diviner series. I know that it is listed as book 1.5 but it is really a prequal story. This is the story where Beresford meets our favorite Selkie Jaq.
I always enjoy getting a back story because it fills in some information when characters reference things. However, this was not my favoite book. Jaq is one of my favorite character in this series and now I kinda think less of him. I quess it shows how much he has grown since when that books takes place but still, he was a pretty crappy person then.
I can’t wait for book four in this series to come out.
My Rating: /5
