My Rating:
VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 heart book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend.
My Thoughts:
Leo ups the ante in Selkie's Revenge. The story contained a heck of a bite with its subtly dark plot and its majorly sexy overtones.

I very much enjoyed the continuation of the Orkney Sel

Signed, "sealed," delivered. Machar Kirk, I'm yours, you sexy, selkie beast.
I absolutely loved this book! I devoured it in a day. This is a must-read for all fans of adult PNR.
Leo has raised the bar to a new level with the Selkie's Revenge.
Her trademark humour and uniquely satisfying style of writing romance is all there. But with this Orkney tale there's also sadness and grief and the dark, dangerous lure of the sea.
I'd defy anyone not to feel for the heroine, Beth, and everything she's been t

First off, the story is based in Scotland which adds an extra star right off the bat. You've got a hot Scott, Mack, who fits the description of what I consider perfection. In essence, this book for me was the literary version of the Jerry Maguire "you had me at hello" moment.

As to the story, Beth and Mack both have a very sad pasts, filled with loss. The details of their lives were well handled by the author. You are never overloaded but are slowly fed the pertinent information in a way that co

Selkie's Revenge is the second installment in Rosanna Leo`s Orkney Selkies series and with this book she really puts this series on the map as something unique and wonderful in the PNR world.

The world she has built here with the selkie`s and the mystical rules that are here is wonderful combined with her down to earth writing style with people that are real with flaws. That makes her book so much stronger when you read about characters that actually could be you and not a picture perfect flawle

This is the biggest emotional ride Rosanna Leo has brought me on to date! Heartrending. I finished this last night. I normally write my reviews as soon as I finish each book so I don't forget details, but I needed a little distance this time because I was so emotional at the end.

This was a darker story than her previous books. I was heartbroken for Beth and everything she had gone through. A few times, her anguish almost brought me to tears and I wished I could hug her. And I was so sad for Mach

Machar Kirk
Beth Pedersen

This is the second book in Rosanna Leo's Selkie series.
Another great read about the Kirk family of Selkie men, and their individual searches for their mates.
This time it's Machar Kirk's and Beth Pederson's turn to find the path of true love, and a very sexy path it is too!

Rosanna tells a great story, this time a slightly dark side with the finman with the orange eyes having a large part. Lets hope the injuries inflicted on him were enough to end him!
4.5 stars

I'll take a Selkie over a Vampire any day. Of course I'd have to quit my job, never see my family or friends, and buy a ton of undies (Costco anyone?) as my Selkie will be screwing me every which way to Sunday. I'm so glad I own a king-size bed. :)

Rosanna Leo ("Leo") does it again with "Selkie's Revenge," the second installment in the "Orkney Selkies" series. Leo delivers a very hot, and very sexy PNR. Mack and Beth are the couple at the heart of the story. They make a nice couple. The

What can I say, I am a sucker for those sleek, sexy, selkies.

Machar Kirk has to be one of the toughest, yet sweetest characters I have encountered. He has spent centuries protecting the shores of his beloved Orkney coast from those disgusting finmen and yet when he comes upon Beth Pedersen being led to her doom upon the ocean he steps in and tries to help her through a terrible period of mourning with such a gentle, caring nature. I melted.

This second installment in the Orkney Selkies series has many of Rosanna Leo's signature elements. There's a strong heroine who isn't terribly inclined to sit back and wait to be rescued or to let someone else fight her battles, but who also has issues. Also included is a gorgeous, alpha hero who's loving and protective, but isn't an ass about it--at least for the most part. Their story is told with a good deal of sexual tension that leads to some steamy sexy times, but also with a large dose ...more

What a awesome and fun read. I think I smiled though most of the book while I read this story. I love folk lore’s and myths and the author has taken the Selkie and Fin Men lore to a sizzling enticing hot level.

The author does a great job creating characters with electrifying charisma and capturing the hearts of a fantasy come true audience. The author’s writing is smooth and visionary as it introduces more insight into the lore itself leaving the reader captivated till the l

I loved this sequel in the Selkie series! Machar is just as yummy and amazing as Calan, though they are different in personality and background. For one Calan didn't hunt anything but Machar is a self-assigned hunter of Finmen! The Finmen are absolutely nasty and not something you'd wanna meet on the beach or anywhere at any time of the day or night! They truly are monsters.
I loved Beth and really felt for her, she was grieving as she'd had a recent loss, a big loss, her husband and her son. Ma

SELKIE'S REVENGE by ROSANNA LEO is the second book in the ORKNEY SELKIES SERIES. Although this is part of a series, it is a stand-alone novel that can be read on its own. This series is so good, though, that you are going to want to read them both. I'm anxiously awaiting the third in the series.

Rosanna Leo's books take mythology and folklore and make it sexy, The Orkney Selkies series take the selkie legend from Irish and Scottish folklore of people who can shape shift in essence from seal to human. Selkie's Revenge is the second in the series but has been written as a stand alone and can be read as such.

Machar Kirk and Beth Pedersen the hero and heroine of Selkie's Revenge share similar tragic backgrounds with lost loves being taken from them by an evil being known as a finman. Mack

I absolutely loved The Selkie, and Selkie's Revenge was just as wonderful. The only disheartening part of Macks' book...Breannan only spoke like three times. *heavy sigh*

This book is a little darker than The Selkie, with the terrible pasts that both Beth and Mack have had, but there was still humor and a ton of sexy to make up for it.

Beth has lost both her husband and her son, and now a Finman is set on making her his broodmare, but Mack is having non of that. When he first sees the Finman lur

Although I didn't like the main characters in this book as much as the first it was still a good story. I can understand why all the girls are crazy about this book and Machar... he's like an alpha male but sensitive and wanting to settle down with a family. Beth is mourning and although I liked the story and Beth herself I found the book a bit depressing.

The part I really found interesting and why I gave it 4 stars were the finmen. I had never heard of the legend of finmen. I had actually not

Book Two of the Orkney Series is simply outstanding. I'm a huge fan of selkie book and Miss Leo is one of my favorite selkie authors.

This book is filled with emotion, action, and passion.

Our hero Machar 'Mack' is obsessed with his vendetta against a certain finman when our heroine Beth enters his life and turns it upside down.

Beth is overcoming the crippling grief of losing her family. Can Grief stricken woman and a man/selkie that is full of revenge be the prefect fit?

A brilliant second book in the Orkney Selkies series, I can't wait to read more of the Kirk brothers, I'm hoping there will be a book for every brother. Like a sucker for a good romance story this book sucked me in, I just adored Machar Kirk and have great admiration for Beth and everything she has been through. The characters were so well written I bonded with them from the get go.

Selkie's Revenge: Oh man, I loved this book! I found myself not wanting to put it down. I love Macks relationship with his family, and how his brothers tease him. It has everything you would want in a book. It's light in the beginning then as you go along with the story it builds into a nail biting situations. This author is very talented, and I hope she continues the Orkney Selkies series. Delayne out :)

Well, Rosanna has done it again. I really enjoyed Mack and Beth. Even with the whole destined mate thing, it took a bit for them to fall in love which I appreciated. When they did it was hard core. Can I just say that I HATE the Finman? He was icky and evil. This book was an easy read with a few great conflicts and of course warm squishy feelings all over! Can't wait for the next one!!!

Another fantastic book! I loved it and can't wait for more stories about Kirk family. I know it's total fantasy, but the characters and story are written in a way that I felt it very believable. Mack is absolutely amazing! I love how protective he is and how he was driven to settle down. That being said, I'd take ANY selkie, Any day! These books make me want to take a trip to Orkney!
