When Coast Guard rescue swimmer Kaleb Theldon sees what he's sure is a mermaid pulling his partner into the murky depths of the Bering Sea, his superiors call it PTSD. In order to save his career, Kaleb agrees to a week at an island spa off the coast of Maine. But the spa is nothing like he expected, and he isn't prepared for the sexy Siren that crosses his path. But will her passion be more than one mere human can take?
Serena has a problem, and after four previous visits to the Wiccan Haus, she'd expected things to get easier. But on the mermaid's fifth visit, Kaleb walks in, and everything in her life becomes complicated. Never has she wanted to mate with a human man before. But can she keep her true self secret while she loves a man who has a chip on his shoulder a league long when it comes to mermaids?
And will loving him prove deadly?
This time, the staff has more than healing on their agenda. The siblings, Myron, and Rekkus must prove to these two lovers that things aren't always how they appear on the surface. Or Kaleb's demise might be found in his Siren's Serenade.
Welcome back to the Wiccan Haus.

Was this a short story? It sure didn’t feel like a short story. Are you sure? The mermaids are living under a curse. To procreate they must steal the soul of a man at the time of conception. Serena has no desire to follow in her sister’s steps and refuses to kill innocent men. Unfortunately her mother is the queen and has given her a year to secure the line of succession or she will be forced to mate. Time is running out and she turns to the Rowan siblings and The Wiccan Haus Resort and Spa for help. Kaleb knows he is not crazy. Yes, he may have PTSD, but he knows what he saw; a mermaid drag his diving partner down into the depths, never to be seen again. He just made the mistake to telling the truth and now is taking forced R&R at the resort. The required classes and instruction are driving him nuts, but when he meets a beautiful woman that sets him on fire, his little trip just got a lot more interesting. What will happen when he discovers that she is the same type of creature that killed his best friend and has possibly ruined his career? Can he look past the hurt of the past and forge ahead to the future? Siren’s Serenade is such a smooth read. The plot is solid and exciting, the sex is hot and the characters are to die for. In regards to the characters, I know personally that I want to get to know them and call them friends. The contributing authors are doing a spectacular job transporting me into the Wiccan Haus universe and Ms. Eastwick has written my favorite addition to date. I enjoyed this story from the very first page. Even though it was about Serena and Kaleb, I also got to revisit the siblings and other wonderful characters from previous books. That aspect made this story all the more special. They blended well with the main couple and didn’t intrude on their story. They only enhanced it. I’m still shocked that this was a short story. While I enjoy short stories to fill in the little windows of time I may have that won’t warrant a full novel, I can’t recall a short story being more fulfilling than Siren’s Serenade. I was left giddy and the epilogue was the icing on the cake! Don’t miss this beautiful sea glass gem. Siren’s Serenade is richly colored and spellbinding. I hope you will be as drawn in as I was. I would suggest that you read the prior books in the series first though. Without them you will not understand why I enjoyed this book so much. While it is not completely necessary, you minus well dive right in and get caught up in the storm. The Wiccan Haus series is a treasure that needs to be enjoyed to its fullest!
My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review This is the fourth book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content. This series is written by several authors. This is Dominique’s 2nd book in the series. She also wrote book 1. I love Dominique’s writing style, and I always feel like I have the whole story and nothing was rushed. I also love that you have a bit of after the happily ever after to know what happens to them, and it doesn’t leave you wondering what happened to them. I love Serena’s sense of right and wrong and that she will not back down from what she feels is right. Kaleb has things to work through and a lot to learn. They make a great pair, and I love having more of Rekkus and Dana in this book. I can’t wait to see what happens next at Wiccan Haus. I highly recommend this story to any paranormal fans of mermaids, shifters, and this series!
When a Siren’s call is naught but love After reading the first three books in this series I had some expectations before I ever cracked the spine of this one… umm can you crack a spine on an ebook? Ah well, I’m sure you all know what I mean. I’ve come to expect great secondary characters that stay true to their original type casting no matter the author. I expect the healing magic of an enchanted island beyond the realm of the mundane. I expect a magically healing love between two great leads. Of course, I say two but sometimes you get more than you bargained for. In the case of a Siren’s Serenade you get the siren princess, Serena and a coast guard rescuer, Kaleb Theldon. Serena has been foretold to be the heir apparent to her mother’s Mer kingdom, something she would rather do without, especially if it entails luring human men to a watery grave with her siren’s song. To make matters worse her mother has given her a year to become pregnant or she will be forced. When pregnancy comes at the cost of a human’s sole, it’s one curse she would rather avoid. Wiccan Haus promises a possible cure from the curse. Unfortunately, the cure continues to elude her. Then temptation and perhaps salvation is put in her path in the form of Kaleb. This one human male tempts her as no paranormal man ever has. Even as tempting as he is she knows that each time she is with him is a risk of a very deadly nature for Kaleb. Sometimes though you learn you can love enough to walk away and sometimes, love transcends the need to. Kaleb has been sent to Wiccan Haus to recover from PTSD at seeing his partner dragged to the watery depths of the Bering Sea by a mermaid. Obviously, his superiors are questioning his sanity and ability to return to work. After witnessing a few of the inhabitants of the island he has to ask himself if it isn’t actually a sanitarium he’s been sent to. I mean come on witches and fortune tellers?… give him a break already. Luckily, for Kaleb, Serena seems to be just what the doctor ordered. This is one woman he can easily fall for. Just one problem… she refuses to swim with him. Having swam with her when they rescued one of the island guests, he knows it’s not because she can’t swim. She just won’t swim with him. Imagine however, what will happen if he should ever find out she’s one of the murderous Mer people. Perhaps predictable in the main challenges these two encounter, the story still provided a few twists along the way. Siren’s Serenade manages to be endearing as you watch these two struggle past their issues and find their way back to each other past all obstacles. I also really enjoyed watching the progression in Rekkus and Dana’s lives. The tales of Wiccan Haus just keep getting better and I can’t wait to see where they take us next. If you like stories of magic, shifters, mermaids, vampires and the like you can’t fail in picking up any in the series. Siren’s Serenade is particularly good and don’t worry if you happen to pick it up first. All of the books are standalones. But, don’t be surprised if you find yourself heading back to the bookseller for the others. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
