Publishers WeeklyVivid sex scenes and an ambitious story arc can't overcome unremarkable prose and derivative story lines in Quinn's mermaid paranormal romance. When despairing widower Kenneth Randall tries to drown himself, mermaid Tessa Lonike saves his life. He returns to Maine's Little Mer Island to try to reconstruct his unlikely survival, and just happens to have the necessary skills to meet Tessa's needs and begins working for her. Soon Kenneth discovers her secret, and they begin an intimate relationship. Meanwhile, Tessa's ex-fiancé wants Tessa and her sisters to help investigate an artifact site in the Mediterranean that he believes will lead to Ishaldi, the land of their mermaid ancestors. However, the sisters have conflicting feelings when it comes to learning more about their heritage. Psychic powers, weapons, and an unusual biological background add some interest to this otherwise uneven romantic fantasy.
