For centuries the shape-shifting mermen of the Morvann Islands have lived incognito among humans. But one of them, Yann, has developed some bad habits. Like rescuing humans, even when doing so risks revealing his true nature. When he fishes Alex out of the sea, he doesn’t expect her to reappear eight months later, and turn his life upside down by asking him to be her guide.
Alex is determined to fulfil a promise to her dying grandmother, by gathering pictures and stories of the Morvanns. But she soon discovers that, on these remote Welsh islands, legends have a habit of becoming true!
Over the course of a few days, Yann and Alex grow close. But some mermen hate humans. Their hostility, and Yann’s secret, threaten to tear the couple apart just as they are discovering that they are soul mates. Can Yann overcome the obstacles in his path and make the right choice?

Yann Benetynn is a merman who is always breaking clan rules. Yann refuses to allow a human to drown if he can save them and when he saves Alex Williams he has no idea how that simple act will change his life.

It has been eight months since Alex nearly drowned and eight months of nightmares.In spite of her fear of water she is returning to the Morvann Islands to fulfill her grandmother’s dream of writing a book about them. Alex is determined to overcome her fear and take photos for her grandmother’s book even though she is returning to where she nearly drowned.

It turns out that the boat she hired is captained by none other than Yann and he immediately recognizes her. He also agrees to be her guide another no no in the clan book of rules. It doesn’t take long before the attraction between them becomes too much to deal with and they both give into their feelings. Of course Yann who will one day be the head of the Benetynn clan knows that there is no future for them since marriage between mermen and humans is also forbidden.

This was not a long book and I don’t want to give too much away in this review but I will say that this is a beautiful forbidden love story and not lacking in some clan rivalry and danger. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
