Troubled marine biologist Jed Deveraux and his team of citizen scientists, Australis Island Dolphin Watch, are head-to-head with a bunch of mainland researchers who should be on the same side. If they can't agree on how to protect their precious sea life and ocean, how can they face the real enemy, Pete Balfour from Contour Oil? If his company's proposal for oil drilling goes ahead, sure destruction of marine life habitat will occur, wiping out the pristine oasis of Australis Island's waters.
Meanwhile, researcher Roxie is tired of her boss's wandering hands; Rob wants to hide his face from the world; Leonie wants to protect her traumatized daughter, Angie, from more emotional harm. And desire always plays its part, even when horns are locked in battle.
Will a pod of beached dolphins help Angie find her voice? Can Jed control his temper long enough to make a difference for his island? And is Roxie a traitor to the cause?
