Romance, Aliens and a Fantastic Story Line!
I love how Carol Ann Kauffman writes her stories. Sea Witch is not a part of the Time After Time series, but it sure could be. She wrote the Sea Witch the same way, love, and romance like no others. That feeling of they knew each other before, even though they didn’t. The excitement of finding true love and being together. The way the characters intertwined, the loss of one of them, only to be found again. Awwwwwe! True Love!
Dr. Laura Martin is the Chief Exraterrestrial Life Scientist at The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research. Dr. Martin is looking for a research assistant. She interviewed a few ladies and next was a man. She didn’t want a man, she got along better with women. But her colleague told her to give him a chance.
Dr. Benjamin Scott Conner is up next for the interview and is excited beyond means. He has admired Dr. Martin for a very long time and it’s his dream to work with her, be next to her, love her and just have her in his arms. Well, he didn’t have a chance. She already had him kicked to the curb in her mind, but he talked her into giving him a 2-week chance, unpaid. She basically had no choice. Scott, that’s what everyone calls him, was very over-qualified and she asked to make him something more along the line of his degrees.
Now Dr. Martin has an alien woman in a holding tank for 20 years and has made a friendship with her. But when she sees Scott, the alien goes nuts screaming that he is her mate. He has no idea what she is talking about. Zara, the name given to the alien, becomes very hostile and has to be calmed with medication. Lara and Scott try to figure out what is going on and by talking about Scott’s background, Lara has an idea of how he is connected to Zara. To find out, they have to go to his Mother’s home in France. This is where you hold on to the edge of your seat and hold your breath.
Sea Witch is a Romance with SciFi and mystery added in. What a great combination! I was trying to figure it all out along the way and was surprised, very surprised to say the least in the last few chapters. The ending was all science fiction and wrapped tightly with romance. What a captivating storyline! This author gas amazing talent!
