It's Wednesday -- time for the HUMP DAY HOOK, a weekly blog meme where authors post a tempting portion of their writing.
Follow this link for a complete listing of this week's participants: Hump Day Authors. And you can find links to these posts on twitter using the hashtag #HDH.
This week I offer the legend from Enchanted Skye.

My Hook:
In the Celtic lands, there are tales told of seals who walk the earth as men and women. From the coastal areas of Scotland and Ireland to the Shetland Islands, on to the Hebrides, and up to the northern Faroe Isles, these seal people are known for their dark beauty and lovely brown eyes. Legend has it they are able to doff their waterskins and live as any human might. They are the Selkies and Roans of lore.
Such women are much desirable as wives, as there are none better able to love a man. A man fortunate enough to come upon a Selkie woman sunning on the rocks may take her to wife, provided he hide her seal skin and hide it well. For no matter her love of him and the children she bears him, the call of the sea will take her away the moment she finds her hidden skin. A Selkie man, with his seductive ways, will come and go, and take his fill of any woman who catches his eye. Only if she adds seven tears to the salt of the sea, however, can she capture his wild heart.

 Rose Anderson writes beautifully every time, and Enchanted Skye is no different. She makes me believe in selkies, makes me want to BE a selkie, her descriptions of their legends and lives are so intimate and lovely.
