Blurb: When a man wakes after a plane crash to find himself on a mysterious island where humans and mythical Merfolk live together, is it all just a strange dream? Or does the Bermuda Triangle have more hidden dangers than were ever thought possible?
What’s a guy to do when his world is falling apart? Go on a vacation of a lifetime…
Gabriel “Gabe” Overton has the worst luck. First, he’s caught having an affair with his father’s married business partner and forced to go on an unwanted tropical vacation until the scandal dies down. Then the plane he’s riding in crash lands on a mysterious island in the middle of nowhere.
Saved by a man with fins instead of feet, Gabe must now try to uncover the island’s secrets, all without being killed in the process. Maybe he can figure out just who imbedded a pearl into his forehead and what that has to do with the sea creatures–known as the Merfolk–and discover what the hidden evil on the island has planned for them all before it’s too late.
Review: A great ‘tail’ of sexy mermen, and their land-based lovers.
Poor shy and gangly Gabe is being sent away to a remote island. Little does he know as his plane crashes, that it’s his destiny to be rescued by a drop-dead gorgeous merman, and in this merfolk tale, a mate is denoted by having a pearl pressed into their forehead.
He encounters a cruel and creepy village leader, and uncovers a deadly truth about him. Escaping from that danger leads him to Paxton, his mer mate, who just happens to be king of the sea.
Gabe even gets involved in preventing a war between the human and merfolk races.
All-in-all, this was a very enjoyable ‘tail’, and Paxton and Gabe make a hot, sexy couple. There is reference to abuse and torture, but nothing explicit.
If you like fantasy, merfolk, and happy endings, this is for you.
