When Xanthus cashes in a long-standing favor, Kyros is faced with doing two things he thought he'd never do - protect a mermaid and live on land. Dagonians loathe mermaids and Sara, Xanthus's wife is no exception. Also, a Dagonian standing on human legs? It's just not natural!

As is being around the vile creatures responsible for polluting his home and killing his sister wasn't horrible enough, Kyros has to deal with Sara's troublesome human friend, Gretchen. This beautiful, spunky human tries his patience and makes him feel things he shouldn't be feeling - least of all for a land-walker! When Gretchen's life is threatened, he is forced to become her protector. But, there are two problems. First, how can he fight his attraction to her when he must keep her close. And second, when a mermaid wants you dead, no one can be trusted. Not even the ones you love.

About the Author

I'm a mom who writes books in her spare time: translation--I hide in the bathroom with my laptop and lock the door while the kids destroy the house and smear peanut butter on the walls. I was born in Utah but moved around a bit, living in Kansas, Texas, and Hawaii where I studied marine biology. I'm now back in Utah--happy valley. I'm married to a wonderful husband, James, and we are currently raising 6 rambunctious children. My interests are reading, writing (or course), martial arts, visual arts, creating Halloween props, and spending time with family.
