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.
All novels Katy Regnery’s ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated.

Being a huge admirer of Ms.Regnery’s work I couldn’t wait to dive into this fairytale! I absolutely loved it!! This was the second book of hers that I’ve read in the modern fairytale series and I have to say that this one is my new favorite. It is such an emotional rollercoaster ride of a story. It brought many tears to my eyes both happy and sad. At times I felt as if I my heart was at a crossroads and I wasn’t sure which way to go. It was nice being inside the hero and heroine’s minds. Their pain, hope, and fears became my own. Laire and Erik’s story hooked me and didn’t let go until the very last page.
Ms.Regnery brought The Little Mermaid to life in such a unique and beautiful way. She has a way of creating stories that show the true power of love as well as pain we deal with in our lives. I’ve always been a fan of fairytales but this story reinstated my love for them. I really enjoyed the realistic aspect of it. I could picture everything so vividly and couldn’t help but get lost in enchanting Outer Banks of North Carolina. Ms.Regnery has stolen my heart once more and blown me away! I can’t wait to read what she comes up with next! 🙂

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.
