Cecil Hargrave lives in a cramped apartment in New York City, hates her job, and has no close friends. She yearns for something more, but what? When Cecil inherits a beachfront house and a thriving business on picturesque Seal Island in Maine, she jumps at the opportunity to kickstart her life, despite her reservations about moving to New England. But even if stereotypes hold true and New Englanders are standoffish, she'll have a new career and a gorgeous home. Much to her delight and surprise, Cecil settles rapidly into small-town life. She makes real friends, plays with the seals who live on the beach outside her house, and meets two very different men. Tom, a darkly sexy novelist, has returned to his hometown to write. He and Cecil hit it off almost immediately, and their chemistry is explosive -- but Cecil can't seem to stay away from the handsome drifter, Ronan, despite his secretive ways. It's like she's under a spell... At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Henry Wood Elliott (1846-1930) was a renowned naturalist and an accomplished artist. In 1872, he was sent to the Alaska territory by the U.S. Treasury department to report on the fur-seal harvest on the Pribilof Islands. He lived on one of the islands and conducted his own study of the animals. Keenly observant and with an artist's eye, he recorded what he saw in both his journals and his artwork. Elliott was appalled by the rapidly declining fur seal population and the wholesale slaughter taking place each summer. The Seal Islands of Alaska is Henry W. Elliott's groundbreaking report as it was published in 1884. He recommended managed hunting to preserve both the species and the industry. He was a tireless wild life advocate and may have saved the fur seal from extinction.
