Marianne Williams weaves a warm tale about challenge, hope and love. Her characters were well thought out and seem to come alive on the paper. The hero has a tendancy to be a bit overbaring at times, manipulating to get his way....but we all love a rougue I suppose. The heroine stands her ground, through all kinds of twists and turns. As you can I tell, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to Marianne's next book.
Very different from your average paranormal romance.
This is the perfect book for someone who loves enchantments, mermaids, and a good love story.
This novel left me pretty torn. This is the first book I've ever read by Marianne Willman and I was deeply impressed with her writing, the lovely and unique setting, and her details. What kept this book from being a keeper for me is...the hero. Hands down. The hero is obsessed with his former love, is far more sexually experienced so the heroine has to put up with an ex-mistress, he lies to the heroine about something major and his own life is so fraught with bullshit when the heroine finally reveals her big secret it seems anti-climactic and silly. I kept wanting the heroine to dump the hero and get with someone without so much baggage. What the hell is the point of reading a romance novel in which the heroine doesn't even come first in the hero's affections for three quarters of the book?
