Terminally ill, Cassandra Nevin has come to the ocean to
live out her days on a boat with a bunch of scientists who
donâ€™t even know sheâ€™s sickâ€”or that sheâ€™s not even a
scientist. When something from the depths of the abyss
attacks their boat, leaving her to drown, she knows itâ€™s
her time. But then the unimaginable happensâ€”she lives.
Iason the Hunter doesnâ€™t understand why the woman heâ€™s
trying to save from death seems insistent he save anyone
but her. Duty bound to try and rescue whoever he can; he
takes the woman into Deep Ocean, to his home beneath the
waves. But it would seem a watery grave wasnâ€™t the only
thing threatening his new chargeâ€™s life. To try and save
her from her illness would mean possible disgrace and being
banned from ever swimming in the ocean again. But what else
can he do? From the first moment he saw her, she had
command over his heart.
