Synopsis:
An overnight fishing trip on the Atlantic Ocean…

It was Stella Gullaksen’s final break before starting her freshman year at college. Joining her best friend, Jill, and Jill's family aboard the STARKISSED, Stella wakes to a violent storm that capsizes the boat over a hundred miles off the New Jersey shore.

As the waves haul her under Stella knows that she is going to die. Instead, an unusual current drags her deep into the underwater canyons of the Atlantic Ocean. Powerless against the raging waters, she is suddenly sucked into a ventilated cave. One by one, Jill and her family also emerge in the sunken cavern.

With only a faulty diving flashlight to keep oblivion at bay Stella and her best friend's brother, Colin, search the cave in hope of finding a way back to the surface. What they discover, however, is that they are not alone. There are other survivors in this subterranean grotto–survivors spanning decades of maritime disasters.

Will this discovery prove salvation, or have they all been condemned to the same fate? A grim finale at the bottom of the sea?

On an alliance forged by friendship and attraction, Stella and Colin battle to escape the danger that lies beneath.

Review:

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

When I thought of words to describe the book the first words that came to my mind were weird, unique and something that I haven't read before. My genre is romance and this book is closer to fantasy than romance. Fantasy is not my genre because there is something about it that doesn't click for me. I did enjoy the book though. I plan to read the next one since the story doesn't end in this book and it will continue for at least one more. Maybe I will be able to dive into this world and actually understand what is going on in book two. The underwater world Stella, our heroine, finds herself in is still a mystery to me (and to her). Since I am not familiar with this author, I can only hope that the answers we will get will be satisfying. I will also be looking forward to some character development and some heat of the romance department.  Colin and Stella have a thing going on between them, but sometimes I felt like they were just two friends who were exploring. The book created more questions than it answered and I have high hopes for the second book. Beath felt like the first chapter in a long story.  I am not saying that in a bad way.

About Maureen A. Miller:

USA TODAY bestselling author, Maureen A. Miller worked in the software industry for fifteen years. She crawled around plant floors in a hard hat and safety glasses hooking up computers to behemoth manufacturing machines. The job required extensive travel. The best form of escapism during those lengthy airport layovers became writing. 

Maureen’s first novel, WIDOW'S TALE, earned her a Golden Heart nomination in Romantic Suspense. After that she became hooked to the genre. In fact, she was so hooked she is the founder of the JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE website. 

Recently, Maureen branched out into the Young Adult Science Fiction market with the popular BEYOND Series. To her it was still Romantic Suspense…just on another planet!
