In 1810 Shoreham, England, the ancient gypsy families have become respectable gentry, after years of giving up their nomadic ways. Cole Strangford is the last male heir of his Romany clan and must marry and produce an heir to satisfy the entailment on the estate. Years ago, Cole's ancestor cursed the St. Germain family to become Sea People, after the St. Germaines stole the Sea Opal from the Strangfords and murdered most of the clan. The curse stipulates that it will end when the two clans blood is mingled. Naturally, the Strangfords are determined that none of their men are seduced by one of the shape-shifting sea maidens. Cole is not sure he believes in the curse, but his family certainly does. The beautiful Juliana St. Germain is just as determined to end the curse that has kept her family less than human for all these years, and bound to the sea. Masquerading as a good Romany bride, Juliana meets and falls in love with Cole. She never meant to fall in love with her family's longtime enemy, and now she is terrified that when he learns her identity, their future will be destroyed.
