For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life - until the unthinkable happens.

I absolutely love this story. Unforgettable. Kya was a very strong girl and turned into an even stronger woman.

When Sophie Turner returns home to the sleepy town of Copper Falls, she imagines the kind of life she's always dreamed of: calm and peaceful. After years of having her steps haunted by a powerful stalker, she is living on land settled by her ancestors. She can feel the magic in her blood and she feels like she finally has the chance to build a life. Until he comes along. Calder Turcotte gives Sophie an ultimatum: break the curse her ancestor set on his family, or lose the very land that's allowing her to heal. And as much as she despises him, she's equally drawn to his icy gaze.

this book was really good until the end. I thought the ending was a little rushed.
