Hot mermen are coming! These tattooed shifters are climbing out of the secret depths to claim their soul mates and save their race.
Determined warlord Torun cannot wait to claim lush captain Lucy, who mistook him for a shipwreck survivor and pulled his injured body from the ocean. All his instincts tell him she is his soul mate. Now she must join with him and give him a child.
Lucy can’t believe the words coming out of this dominant male. He insists her destiny is to become a mermaid queen and mother to his future children. The one thing “destiny” forgot to mention was that Lucy’s a broke divorcee who can’t even have a child. It’s really too bad, because his gorgeous lips are all too kissable, and she’d love to see his iridescent gold tattoos moving as he flexed those broad, hard pectorals under the water...
But Torun’s in more immediate danger than a bad bump to the head, and Lucy is the only one who can save him. Their choices will either save the entire race of mermen, or destroy it forever.
This is a complete novel with a happy ending. Also, it features steamy mer shifter love scenes, underwater gun fights, and a giant female octopus named Mr. Huggles. For mature readers only, please.
I tried to get into this book. It was real good in the beginning but then it stalled out for me. It almost seemed as if the author was just getting lazy as the story went on and tried to tie up the loose ends without the detail that was used in the first half. It was rushed and unpolished.
Also, there were some disprecancies in the timeline. When they came back to the surface and her ex said she had been declared dead and they had her funeral last week.? Come on, everyone knows its takes years to be legally declared dead. The timeline was inconsistent in that. I can suspend my belief but that was asking too much even from me.
Her character was too self-decrecating for my tastes and I got tired of it when she didn’t grow. He had to constantly assure her and I don’t mind that in a character. As long as it’s not overused and the character grows out of it. But she didn’t.
