"Fantastic introduction to a new-to-me author!"
Up-and-coming singer, Chloe Karras can mesmerize every man
in the room while she sings. She thinks it's just a
positive side effect of her singing—she doesn't think she
has actual power over the men.
But she does. Though she doesn't know it yet, Chloe is a
siren, the femme fatale from Greek mythology. Only she
isn't a myth.
Navy Captain Alex Shore, a frequent visitor to the bar in
which Chloe sings, is the only man seemingly immune to
Chloe's seductive, mesmerizing, musical hold. He is also a
triton—an ancient sea soldier sworn to protect humans from
a siren's song.
Though Alex knows what he must do, he finds himself drawn
to her. Now Alex needs to make a decision: banish the siren
and protect his city, or give in to the strongest
attraction he has felt in centuries.
I loved this book. Ms. Draven has expertly woven Greek
mythology with contemporary society, staying true to the
myth of the siren while keeping the setting and plot
believable. The characters of Chloe and Alex are
interesting and captivating. The secondary characters round
out the story, and one of them is part of the plot twist at
the end of the book.
I enjoyed Ms. Draven's writing so much, I'm looking into
buying her complete backlist, as well as her new historical
series written under her pen name. Needless to say, I will
be reading more of her books in the future.
