Three seductive love stories, three passionate couples, all linked by one of the most romantic myths of all.« less
A collection of 3 stories linked together by a mythicl curse and a locket. Pretty good until the very end and then I think there's a break in the continuity of the story line that makes the ending nonsensical. Disappointing.
This was 3 paranormal stories in one. The first two were very good, the last, not so much. It was disjointed, the heroine not very likeable, and didn't make much sense, to be honest. I think you were supposed to figure out what was going on by the previous two stories. A little more clarity would have helped with the ending. Overall, a good book.
Trio of interrelated stories about love and loss, possession and passion, entertwined with the lives of a siren race and a remote Scottish isle. The final story, which should tie it all up, is a bit obscure, but it's a fine, romantic read anyway.
