The Merman’s Kiss


Publisher’s Synopsis:
A sexy, sleek-tailed monster.

Zantu has evaded the mate-bond for thirty-five years, dodging promiscuous mermaids with vile intents. Unlike mermaids, mermen bond for life, and Zantu refuses to accept the heartbreak most mermen die of. That is, until the glint of gold catches his eye, and a simple salvage mission turns to passion. Now he’s bonded to a human.

A woman looking for a reason to live.

Briana thinks her life is over after the loss of her child. Instead, she falls into the arms of a merman who is anything but cold-blooded. He’s wild, seductive, and sets her blood on fire every time he touches her, and soon she begins to need him for more than his magic to breathe underwater. He might just give her a new purpose.

But as dangers encroach from every side, Zantu must choose; keep his new mate at his side or keep her safe.

Either way, he’s sure he’ll end up with a broken heart.

Point of view:
3rd person.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
Note: This is part 1 of a 3 novella series. It’s also been combined into a box set titled Mer Lovers Collection.

I have mixed feelings about this – in some respects it was a sexy & sweet merman romance book. On the other hand there was some pretty heavy/serious topics that were kind of overwhelming and glossed over at the same time. I was hoping for a little more connection between Zantu & Briana beyond a fated mates attraction. I think the author tried to tackle too many plot points in too short of a story. I enjoyed it, but it left me wanting more details.

The author narrates the book herself. She has a pleasant voice and while I would have liked more variation in character voices and emotions, I didn’t have a problem listening to the whole thing.
