family secrets lead to a hidden world - Lyla's Song by Jennifer Christiansen

He followed the haunting music through the dense fog. It grew louder and louder, calling him forward. Enticing. Mesmerizing. The tune was vaguely familiar. Melancholy, tragic, and yet somehow majestic and romantic.

Description: 

Release Date: October 9th, 2015

After a traumatic loss, Lyla travels to Ireland to meet her grandmother for the first time in her life, and her discovery of some family secrets leads to a hidden world she thought only existed in fairy tales.

EXCERPT 

He followed the haunting music through the dense fog. It grew louder and louder, calling him forward. Enticing. Mesmerizing. The tune was vaguely familiar. Melancholy, tragic, and yet somehow majestic and romantic.

He reached the water’s edge and peered ahead, straining his eyes in order to find the music’s origin. He saw movement. He heard small splashes as ripples of current surged forward. Her ghostly form appeared. He watched in fascination as the dreamlike creature gracefully shrugged off her cloak. She glided onto the sandy shore of the beach. He couldn’t move. He couldn’t speak. He could only worship her beauty. Her ruby lips curved in a sly, seductive smile. Captivating. Arousing. Aqua eyes held his gaze and beckoned him closer. He didn’t know who she was or where she came from. All he knew was that he must have her.
