Product Description

"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.

Katy Regnery has written another truly wonderful story. Don't' Speak (a modern fairytale) is the latest in the fairytale series.
If you haven't read her previous books in this series then you really should do yourself a favour as each book is more than worth your while and you definitely will not regret it.

This story is about Laire and Erik two young people that couldn't be more different. Their love story is beautiful and special only to be brought to a halt with lies and secrets.

I'm a HUGE fan of Katy's stories, especially her Modern Fairytale series and this time she has really outdone herself. There wasn't I thing that I didn't adore about this book!!!

Laire and Erik, god I think they're my favourite couple of Katy's. Their love for one another despite their differences just did me in. I was a goner from the first moment they laid eyes on each other. How could I not? He wanted her and he pursued her, and she could do little to fight the pull she felt toward him.

And sweet and also sexy Erik has definitely pushed past ALL of Katy's other heroes and now has a permanent place in my heart. He did everything right!!! He was sweet, flirty, and he was never once embarrassed of Laire. Did he lie and keep her a secret? Yes! But not because he wasn't bursting at the seams to tell everyone. He had to protect her, and that was the only way he knew how to do it.

I'm going to stop here because I don't want to ruin anything for someone who hasn't read it yet. And if you haven't, I've got to tell you that's a shame because you're really missing out. This has definitely hit my top reads of 2017!!!

And the little homages to The Little Mermaid did not go unnoticed. They were subtle but if you've ever watched the movie you'll catch them. ❤

This was a very heart felt story. My heart was torn apart, smashed and then the pieces put back together. You will need tissues!! Although a little predictable, the story is well worth the read... and the pain. Rich Erik falls for poor Laire and there journey of ups and downs begins. At times I felt like I was reading an historical romance, Laire was so sheltered and knew nothing of the real world and this is why it was not a five star. The beginning let it down a touch for me. But it was still a wonderfully written true love story.

I'm a big fan of fairy tales, especially modern fairy tales, so when I heard that Don't Speak was a modern version of The Little Mermaid, I just had to read it. I wasn't disappointed! It was a unique blend of an old favorite and new twists.

Erik is the son of the governor of North Carolina. Local royalty of sorts. He is finishing college and planning to go to law school. Laire is a fisherman's daughter on a local island that time has forgotten, the tenth generation of Cornishes to live on the island. No tourists. No cell phones. Dial up Internet in limited locations. She dreams of going away to college to study fashion design. They meet when Laire delivers fresh crabs for a party at the governor's island mansion, and there is an instant attraction. But Erik's family would never accept a fisherman's daughter, and Laire's family would disown her for dating a dingbatter (outsider). Can they find a way to be a part of each other's worlds?

The plot was interesting and somewhat suspenseful. Laire's life seemed to be one tragedy after another, and I kept thinking, "Won't she ever get a break?" The characters were well developed and immediately likable, although I was frustrated at how quick they both were to lose faith in each other when their families put obstacles in their way. Erik was sweet, patient, and romantic. Laire was naive but very brave. The secondary character of Judith really warmed my heart.

This was my first book by Kate Regnery. I struggled through the first couple of chapters because they were a bit slow moving and corny feeling, but I'm glad I pushed through. Don't Speak really touched me, and it's one of the few books I've ever felt inclined to re-read. I look forward to looking up other modern fairy tales by Kate Regnery.
