“Swoon. Sigh. Beautiful, gorgeous love story. You renew my faith in true love, Katy Regnery. And a brilliant take off on the little mermaid. People are going to love this one.” –Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author of Archer’s Voice
From New York Times bestselling author 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 where she is working.
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.
Review by Christine:
Don’t Speak by Katy Regnery is a emotionally charged modern day twist on “The Little Mermaid”. Laire, from a fisherman’s family on the outer banks of North Carolina, has dreams bigger than the small community she’s grown up in. When Laire bumps into the handsome governors son, Erik, she can’t help to give in to his charm. With one look Erik fell for the feisty strawberry blond beauty with mesmerizing eyes but winning her over will be a challenge like he’s never experienced before in this love story for the ages.
This was my first read from Katy Regnery and I’m hooked! I want to go back and read her other fairy-tales retold now that I’ve enjoyed this book so much. Even though we know the classic story Katy’s twist on the tale was gripping and fresh I couldn’t put the story down from 45% on. Laire’s evolution from young naive 18 year old to strong, independent woman who reaches for her goals in just a few years. Erik’s emotional reaction to events broke me – I truly loved his character and fell for him hard. How could you not? He’s a prince. These two characters had me from the first moment they met and I enjoyed the slow burn romance with stunningly beautiful sex scenes, so well written with complete care for the characters. I laughed, I cried, I screamed and I fell in love all over again. 5 forever stars for Don’t Speak by Katy Regnery

About the Author:
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.

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.
