Review - SELKIE'S REVENGE by Rosanna Leo

On the beaches of Orkney, Scotland, an evil entity stalks mortal women. Machar “Mack” Kirk is a selkie man with a haunted past, one that has prompted him to become a hunter. He prowls the beaches at night, his arrows aiming for the finman who took his first love. 

Beth Pedersen also watches the sea. The haunted widow has suffered losses of her own, ones that have crippled her into a state of stony grief. Beth can no longer feel, can no longer see color and life. Until the day Mack Kirk saves her from a mysterious foe, flooding her world with brightness and foreign temptation. 

As Mack and Beth fight their inundating passion, the finman escalates his attacks. Before long, Mack realizes he’s not just playing Good Samaritan. He wants Beth, too, and will do anything to ensure his lover isn’t taken by the finman. But can he protect his mate from a monster with no soul?


This is my first book by Rosanna Leo and it won’t be my last. I love the way she weaved this unique mythical love story full of alpha males. Selkie’s Revenge has a little bit of everything. Love, loss, tragedy, toe curling sex (okay there is a lot of this), suspense and a hint of mystery. 

Machar “Mack” Kirk has suffered the tragic loss of a woman he deeply loved at the hands of the evil Finman. Now he watches over the shores of the sea in hopes to destroying the hideous creature. Mack’s need for revenge however does not outweigh his need for love, but not just any love, everlasting love. His mate is out there somewhere and he longs to find her. Mack jumps (literally) into Beth’s life and beings his journey on the road to love. He must save her life and her heart. 

Mack swept me off my feet and oh how I wished I was in those big strong Selkie arms wrapped in his pelt. *swoon*

Beth Pedersen has been destroyed in the worst imaginable way. My heart went out to her not only as a mother but as a wife. She has lost her desire to live life. She walks through the motions of her day to day life just being, but not living. Mack suddenly appears in her life and not only saves her but turns her reality upside down. He breathes new life into her once again, giving Beth a reason to love, and love in a way she has never loved before. Now Beth must risk the life of the man that fills her heart to save them both. 

Beth may have been a broken woman but she is not weak. Once she has her mind set on something she fights for it even at the cost of herself. 

I am giving Selkie’s Revenge a sexy 4 STARS. It has some serious heat with original well rounded characters and story line. I can’t wait to read more about those sweet, hot, sexy, Selkie men and look forward to hearing more about those alpha brothers.
