Description

In Debbie Herbert's debut novel, there are two secrets, each one with a deadly consequence...
Shelly Connors's worlds--on land and in the sea--are turned upside down when an evening swim turns into a nightmare. On a sweltering night deep in the bayou, the mystical mermaid witnesses a horrifying act. With a monstrous killer now hot on her trail, her life and the lives of her kin are in jeopardy.
Terrified of becoming the next victim, Shelly has no choice but to turn to Sheriff Tillman Angier. Tillman has had his intense gray eyes on the sultry honey-haired beauty for a while. The feelings are mutual...and impossible to ignore. But he's determined to solve the murders, and he knows Shelly's hiding something. Can she trust him with her deepest secret?

The first book in the new Dark Seas series is a mesmerizing paranormal romance that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. Shelly is half â??mermaid, half â?? human and witnesses a serial killer disposing of the body of his latest victim. With her life and the life of her family in danger, Shelly tries to help the local sheriff, Tillman solve the murders without revealing her secret. Despite his attraction to Shelly, his trust in her is beginning to waver with his growing suspicion that sheâ??s hiding something. This steady to fast paced plot keeps the anticipation building throughout the story with the danger to Shelly and her cousins escalating. The author brings this intriguing story to life with vivid imagery and details that capture the imagination. The strong enchanting characters are easily related to and draw the reader deeper into the story and the teasing peeks of their personalities that have the reader wanting to know more. The attraction between Tillman and Shelly starts off with lots of sizzling passion and quickly escalates to hot and steamy, but the relationship has some serious issues. Of course, Shelly has the obvious secret, but that fact that she is being stalked by a serial killer puts quite a damper on things, also her family tends to get the way. Tillman can sense that Shellyâ??s hiding something and this makes it hard for him because of his job. The serial killer knowing the cousinâ??s secret spices things up a bit as well by adding more intrigue and danger to the story because now he wants to add a mermaid to his collection. I was thoroughly engrossed in the story from the very beginning and I found the characters to be captivating and believable. The author has created a wonderful story of mermaids with lots of suspense and drama and her own surprising twists and elements that keep things interesting. Debbie Herbertâ??s debut novel is a success and I canâ??t wait to read the next book in the Dark Seas series.show more
