Genre: Contemporary Romance
From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.
In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman’s daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of the North Carolina governor at a fancy party she helps to cater.
Laire, who wants more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.
Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.
In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
AUTHOR ‘s LINKS
Oh my… Laire and Erik. I am completely in love with these two. Seriously, I am one smitten momma! Their emotionally, intense story should be added to everyone’s library – it’s a must read romance.
Laire grew up on a small island off the coast of North Carolina. For her entire life she’s upheld all of the expectations from her father, family and her home town. She knows that when she is old enough, that she is to marry one of the local boys, settle down and make babies – all while carrying on the traditions of the island. However, Laire wants so much more. She has hopes and dreams that make her want to see what is beyond the island life she knows.
On the flip side of that is Erik. He is the son of the North Carolina Governor and his family is privileged, wealthy and prestigious. Nothing about his life is sheltered or innocent but Erik also needs to meet his family’s high expectations for him. Laire is everything he never knew he wanted or needed in complicated life.
When they meet, it’s like someone rubs two pieces of flint together creating this untamable fire. They share an incredible connection that’s enticing and addictive. I found myself swooning over their courtship. It’s sweet and charming. I wanted them to conquer every obstacle that they came upon.
I really don’t want to accidentally spoil anything about their story so I’ll just leave you with this. Real life hits them hard and it really knocks them off course. It’s crazy what they need to overcome to get their happily ever after together. However, you will love every moment of their journey.
I love books like Don’t Speak. It was so easy to be caught up in Laire and Erik’s world because I was completely captivated by their love story. It’s an amazing read and definitely worth checking out. Grab your copy now – I promise you’ll thank me later!
