"Fine adult fairy tale romance"
Ironic as it seems Air Force Staff Sergeant Christine "CC"
Canady hates to fly. So her current assignment taking her
from Tinker AFB, Oklahoma on a ninety-day tour in Riyadh is
not one she looks forward too. However, her fears prove
accurate this time as the plane crashes into the water.
Instead of drowning, Undine a mermaid saves her life. When
they kiss, they switch places.
Undine's brother Sarpedon tries to rape her, but CC
escapes. She meets another merman Dylan who is kind to
her. Soon Undine's mother Gaia helps CC by allowing her to
become human, but every three days she must return to the
sea until she finds true love. Sir Andras saves Undine
from the sea and takes her to Calder Monastery on Calder
Island where Abbot William looks suspiciously upon her
amnesia claim and her insistence she is a princess. Andras
tries to court her, but turns nasty and dangerous as
Sarpedon takes control of his body. CC soon realizes that
she loves Dylan and he reciprocates the feeling, but fears
what Sarpedon will do to her beloved.
GODDESS OF THE SEA is a solid retelling of Undine's tale
that readers of adult fairy tale romances will appreciate.
The story line is loaded with action on land and at sea.
CC as a human soldier or as a mermaid is a strong
character; the audience will cherish her, as she serves as
the center of this enjoyable adult version of Ariel the
