Halona Jacobs lives in the town of Blansett, North Carolina, better known to visitors as “Magicville.” An only child, she has spent her entire life in this magical coastal town, but with three best friends, three cousins at that, she was never lonely, until the day of a tragic accident. Her world shattered that day she lost the love of her life, leaving her emotionally scarred.
Now a decade later, she remains tethered to grief and guilt, feeling the swirls of emotions around others but numb to her own. Still, she goes through the motions of her life. She owns and operates The Beachcombers, a nautical antique shop. Coming from a long line of salvage operators, who each possess an incredible, magical gift that enables quite a lucrative business, she has a successful livelihood, but she is missing that swell of emotion that brings meaning to life.
Drake Adams comes into her world like a tsunami. He floods her with feelings she hasn’t known in a very long time. In town for a festival production, he has no plans to stay in this small, restrictive town, that is until he is charmed by its locals, or one in particular. He now must convince Halona, as well as her protective cousins, that he is the man for her.
Things have not always been easy for Halona and her three equally beautiful cousins, but together, they can ward off anything. And they intend to keep their town safe, come hell or high water.
Jenn Skyler is a constant if nothing else, an air witch who values her independence. She is a thoughtful analyst of life and sees things as straightforward while intellectually weighing all that comes before her.
Nevlin Rowe enjoys life and all its forms. He loves everyone, and no one. As a Druid scholar, he’s had lifetimes of lessons and experiences and devoted many, many years to caring for, protecting, and being part of the Earth.
When Nevlin comes to the town of Blansett, he does so with a prophecy, as well as a curse. When the sea turns green, that is not all that changes. Jenn is suspicious of him and his intentions, and seeking answers, she discovers not only has Nevlin enjoyed lifetimes of journeys, he has spent centuries seeking answers of his own. Now there are signs all around if only they can interpret them.
As Air meets Earth, a whirlwind of emotion erupts and Nevlin becomes determined to bring Jenn down to Earth. Will their connection be limitless like the Sky itself or grounded like the Earth? Or do all signs point another way?
