Travel agent Jarrett Joynson won’t let his cheating boyfriend spoil his dream vacation, but being alone in Hawaii is more difficult than he imagined. When his attempts to catch a new lover fail, he turns to his Wiccan faith to ask the moon for guidance.

Shark shape-shifter Kainalu Enakai is in a similar position. His last relationship fell apart because he couldn’t share the truth with his boyfriend. Now Kainalu is on the prowl, looking for a new distraction.

When the moon draws Jarrett and Kainalu together, sparks fly. But the old scars on both their hearts cause trouble between them. If they cannot learn to trust each other, it will put not only their relationship in danger, but possibly Jarrett’s life.

Jarrett just lost his long time boyfriend when he realized he’d been cheating on him for a long time. Determined to keep the vacation he’d booked for them as a couple, he flies to Hawaii and sets off to enjoy himself. He spends time talking to the Goddess Moon, he’s wiccan and being connected to his faith is one of the things he argued about with his ex.

Kainalu is a shark shifter who fears ever finding a mate. His last boyfriend fled when he began to confess his powers and now Kainalu’s gun shy.

When Jarrett and Kainalu meet at a bar, they’re both attracted to one another but unwilling to take a risk on what has to be a temporary fling. But when they run into one another again, this time just as Kainalu has shifted in the water near Jarrett, they realize that the Goddess might be showing them something they both need.


I love unique shifter stories!! This felt like a more aboriginal type tale with shark people having a clear link to early humans but losing their relationship over time. Though the two didn’t get a lot of time with one another, we are left with the feeling that things will definitely work out for them this time.

Very creative and well done.
