This book moves at a fast pace, allowing the reader to get easily invested in the story. The opening scene takes place at an Alaskan strip club; the crew of the Fishin’ Magician is there to mourn and celebrate the life of the crew mate that had drowned the night before. Capt. Trevain notices a beautiful dancer, who performs a routine that would’ve been more fitting for a ballet instead of a strip club.
Capt. Trevain and the dancer are instantly drawn to one another, though he tries to deny it because he feels their age difference is too great. Then his brother Callder, calls him over and introduces him to Aazuria. He became compelled to purchase a private dance, but uses the time to get to know Aazuria better. When he discovers that her father has recently died and she is trying to take care of her sisters, he invites them to move into his house.
Ultimately, Trevain and Aazuria begin a relationship, but she is called away to take care of family business. Aazuria leaves one of her sisters with the captain, because his brother has just drowned and she can’t stand to leave alone when he’s in such pain. Capt. Trevain works up the courage to discuss his plan to propose to Aazuria with her sister, Elandria. Elandria decides to test the strength of the captain’s love, by divulging that Aazuria actually killed their father. The captain remains steadfast in his devotion to Aazuria, and Elandria gives him her blessing.
In order to remain together Aazuria and Trevain will have to face many obstacles, from the discovery that Trevain’s mom is a mermaid to the impending war that Atargatis has planned to avenge the daughter that was stolen from her.
You’ll want to purchase this book to find out of Callder has indeed perished, or is his mermaid mother able to find her son and save him. Will Queen Aazuria and Capt. Trevain find a way to get over the things in their pasts, and if so, whose world will they choose to live in?
