Leanna Colbert, dedicated to her work and aging mother, desired love. But not just any love--most of all she wanted love in the sea. And so she travels to Mermaid Point, a high rocky outcrop and favourite childhood camping area, to dream of her Sea Lover. There she meets Noah, but a merman couldn't be standing up there in the searing sun talking to her..or could he?
How am I ever going to find the perfect seaside lover if I only get here once every two months or so?
She knew the prospect of a move anytime soon, due to her aging mother, remained out of the question. With her mom in a nursing home, despite the fact she seemed quite spry, Leanna had to stay put. Guilt surfaced now and again.
There's no other choice with my work, she told herself yet again.
Finding it increasingly difficult to convince herself, Leanna sighed aloud. Where her mother lived went against the grain. If only she could have her at home. Looking around her favorite spot, Leanna prayed out loud for him to come save her.
"Where are you my lover? I need you."
Mermaid Point, a three hour, easy going hike from the nearest camp-site, jutted out sharply from the rugged coastline. Leanna came here often as a young girl, the family camped once a year. Her mom had brought her out to this spot, Mermaid Point, once. Leanna had loved it ever since but could never get her mom to walk out with her again.
Many stories of mermaid sightings went back through history. The wind blew wildly from the west and today proved no exception. Her hair tousled around her face, she loved the feeling of freedom it had. The possibility of danger excited her. Legend had it that sightings of playful merfolk were quite common, right here.
Imagine that, my very own summer sea lover. Mmmmmmm.
Sure that she had heard a voice, Leanna shook her head. No, now that's just too far-fetched. Standing precariously on the outermost edge of the rock, Leanna strained her ears, but it was impossible to hear against the roar of the waves. The noise chipped away at her remaining calm.
"I must be mad. Who the hell would be out here anyway?"
A deep, rich voice came from behind her. "I always said that if I was silly enough to be somewhere, chances are someone else would be there, too!"
Leanna jumped around, stepping backwards, to avoid falling. Perspiration trickled the long track of her neck mixing now with the tiny hairs, now erect. "What the hell! You trying to scare me to death or something? What are you doing sneaking around here like that?" Her heart was like a jack-hammer at her ribcage.
Man! He's hot! Possibly hotter than this searing sun, she considered. Something rang familiar about him, like she knew him. Her body sure did and wasted no time reacting to the raw sexuality exuding from him. The sight of his sky blue eyes teamed with tangled, blond hair caused wetness between her legs. Pushing the nagging feeling away, and trying to take control of her arousal, Leanna told herself they were only dreams. On tiptoes, she tried to make eye contact with him, hoping that would help her recognition.
"I do beg your pardon for startling you, I couldn't resist." Greedy eyes traveled all the way down her body and back up. His presence sent shivers through her despite the summer heat. Leanna was glad she'd worn her black bikini, coupled with the cool ocean spray, it made her golden tan glow. Her nipples strained against the thin, stretchy fabric, eager for his attention. She made no attempt to hide them. How could she as large as they were? His gaze lingered there for a moment which sent her body into sexual overdrive.
"My name is Noah, pleased to meet you." Offering his large hand to her, he took a small step forward.
"Leanna…pleased to meet you…Noah." Electricity seemed to surge between them as their hands met. His taut skin wet, she looked questioningly at him and noticed his hair dripping as well.
"You're wet…how? I mean, where were you swimming?"
He took a step towards her, Leanna couldn't move back, already dangerously close to the jagged edge. His shaggy head inclined toward the boiling waters below.
"In there," he said, calmly.
Looking down, Leanna felt a little vertigo, strange. That had never happened before.
"But how? It's too dangerous, and how would you get up here anyway?" Leanna began to think she may be sexually attracted to a psycho, lying to her so he could take her off and chop her up! So close to her now, Noah held her back from toppling off the rock. Leanna felt a little scared.
"Please, I'll fall. Why are you doing this?"
Gentle lips brushed her sensitive earlobe as he spoke softly. "Perhaps I'm making a wish come true."
His hand deliberately grazed across her nipple. It almost jumped out of the bikini top at him. Confusion addled Leanna's brain.
How could he know? This is madness! He can't know my innermost desire…impossible! Nuzzling into her neck, he nibbled at her skin.
"Isn't this what you want? To be made love to? In the sea?" Long fingers clasped at her butt cheeks. He pulled her close. It felt as if she knew him, her body knew him. Any reservations she had crumbled. Her body screamed to be touched by him.
"Who told you that?" Leanna gasped out. Her chest heaved against Noah's muscular body. He has no top on? He'd had one on earlier, she'd thought so anyway. His explanation penetrated her very fiber.
"You told me, Leanna, just now, standing here showing off your perfect body. I have to fulfill that wish for you. I have to have you." His voice whispered like the rustling leaves.
"Come with me. Leanna…come with me."
Suddenly, they hurtled towards the sea. She should be screaming, but Leanna remained mesmerized while Noah held her and looked deep into her eyes. Time and motion stood still. Leanna felt as if they were floating slowly like a bubble, not plummeting downwards in a free fall. He kissed her. His mouth tasted like the sea, salty and cool. Slowly entwining his tongue around hers, he fanned her inner flames into a rage. The merciless sun paled in comparison
Leanna felt lost in him as if, somehow, they had become conjoined in that moment. The water must be coming soon! Shit! It'll be freezing. How will I breathe? That's if I even survive the two-hundred-foot drop! Panicked thoughts threatened, but his protective embrace consumed her and she opened her mouth, devouring even more saltiness.
"Do not worry, Leanna. I will not allow you to be harmed. I only wish to fulfill you."
Now, this is freaky! How can he speak if he's kissing me?
A deep throaty, sexy laugh invaded her mind. "My dear, sweet, sexy human. We are communicating with our thoughts, which is how I heard your desire. It is the way of the merfolk."
