"Steamy romance filled with fantasy"
The year is 1872 on the New England Coast. Joshua Harding
has made a promise to his dying grandfather. It is a
promise that will change his life forever.
How hard could it be to spend a month tending to the
lighthouse that had been his grandfather's life? When
Josh's time is up he can return to marry his sweetheart
Alexandria and see if she is as passionate in bed as he
hoped. After only a few days Josh begins to feel the
loneliness and isolation that must have haunted his
grandfather for all those long years. The stories the old
man told Josh as a youngster start to play heavy in his
mind. Still Josh is determined not to believe that things
like sea monsters exist.
Merleau is a willfully playful mermaid determined to
seduce the new lighthouse keeper. She uses all of her
sexy charms to try and get Josh into bed with her. When
she is unable to seduce him in his world she whisks him
off to her world of Cerkania. Merleau knows that bringing
a land dweller to the kingdom of the Sea Lords will have
serious repercussions for both her and Josh. Her only
hope is that Lord Neckarian will not find out.
Shapeshifer Anen vows revenge when Merleau refuses her
request to share Josh. With her ability to become
anything at will she goes to Lord Neckarian in a form she
knows will catch his eye. The Sea Lord soon learns of
Merleau's deceptions. The ensuing conflict and final
outcome are best left to the reader so as to not spoil the
With THE MERMAID SEDUCTION, Aurora Rose Lynn has crafted a
wonderful story of romance seasoned with strong elements
of paranormal fantasy. I found the book a delight to read
and one that I could not put down. I fell in love with
her characters, especially the mermaid Merleau. She has
spunk and a heart that just won't quit. The story could
have been rather dark had it not been for the light
hearted humor that Aurora interjects along the way. Not
to give too much away but Tiny, the dolphin, is a hoot.
The love scenes are HOT and STEAMY yet done in a fashion
that feels right. They are definitely plot driven which
is a must for this reader.
I hope Aurora Rose Lynn will favor us with a sequel so
that I can see more of Merleau. I think readers who like
paranormal romance will love this book. I give it my
highest recommendation. It is a real keeper.
