Love can be like the ocean. Deep…and deadly.
Illiana is a half mermaid and has kept that fact hidden from all but a trusted few in her life. She is content to live her life, work her job and to stay far away from the sea she is so drawn to.
Then by accident she meets Karsh a full merman and they are drawn to each other and fall into a strangely instant and intense relationship as a mated pair. But knowing Karsh brings her into danger.
There is a man named Kelby who enjoys killing halfies like her. The minute he meets Illiana, he knows what she is, and sets out to hunt her immediately. Can Karsh protect her? Or will she suffer the fate of dying at the purists hands.
“You say such embarrassing things.” I choked on nervous laughter as his eyes filled with a dark light. He was thinking nefarious things, fun but nefarious. I swallowed watching his face as it filled with the knowledge that I wouldn’t say no. I couldn’t say no to Karsh, part of it bothered me but the majority of me just wanted not to say no to him. I shivered, remembering the pleasure his body had brought me. He cupped my ass in his strong hands and brought me closer to the edge of the rock, my toes tensed at the feel of the cold water and I quickly placed my feet on the bare skin of his back. I could feel his breath, hot on the most intimate parts of me and it made me catch my breath. His fingers dug into me and I made small sounds for him.
“So wet for me,” he said his voice husky and deepening.
“We...” I breathed harshly, “…have just been swimming.”
