From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale.

In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman's daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of the North Carolina governor at a fancy party she helps to cater. 

Laire, who wants more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.

Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

All novels Katy Regnery’s ~a modern fairytale~ collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated.

I can’t believe that this is my VERY FIRST READ by the amazing Katy Regnery! What the hell was I waiting for? This woman writes my type of romance! She takes the beautiful fairytales that captivated us as children and puts a modern and very sexy twist to them to satisfy us as adults. I mean, what’s not to love about that? DON’T SPEAK is a twist on The Little Mermaid, one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES growing up. In my opinion, she did a DAMN good job with this one. The way she kept it modern, but threw some names of characters in the mix that we no doubt will remember from the cartoon movie. It’s genius if you ask me. It fulfills our lust for romance as adults, and yet, it takes us back to our childhood and helps us keep those wondrous memories intact. I enjoyed it immensely and to tell you the truth, I need more of this in my life. So yes, you need to pick up DON’T SPEAK by Katy Regnery, but don’t let it stop there. She has some amazing modern fairytales that are out in the wild that you have to add to your list. This concept is what made me such an avid romance reader. The beauty of the fairytale and the sizzling romance that is embedded within…it’s just magical…it’s romantic…it’s the happily ever after that you crave.

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. 

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. 

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
