In a world where magical creatures are as rare as a spotty teen at a supermarket checkout, being one quarter Harpy shouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately for Mimosa Black, this is not the case. Combining her failed marriage, inability to fly, and unrequited crush on her childhood friend, Bo Elliot-Mimosa's existence is less than idyllic. Things however, are rarely as they s ...more

I discovered Nicola Sheridan while reading a guest post on a friend's blog, and I'm really glad that I have. I have read both of her novels (Magical Gains, and Magical Creations) as well as her novella (Mimosa Black), and I have found them all to be absolutely amazing. Lately the market has been so incredibly saturated by vampires and werewolves (and more recently faeries) that having books that center around genies and harpies, etc. is so incredibly refreshing. Mimosa Black is set in the world ...more

Another awesome story by Nicola E. Sheridan. This is actually a short novella (only 65 pages). I read it in a single afternoon. This story, unlike the other two I read, is about a Harpy. She is actually 1/4 harpy, but in this world that doesn't mean that her physical characteristics *had* to be diluted. Harpies are only ever born female, so it is required to breed with males of another species in order to create more harpies. Mimosa Black is a rare harpy in that she actually has primarily a huma ...more
I'm not sure if this was a full lenght book or just a short story, it did seem awfully short to me. I likedthe characters and the author's take on harpies was unique. But the main character lacked the sense God gave her andhad no self esteem to speak of, this made it hard for the story to be believable she supposedly has these two guys that want her but her character and actions made me wonder what they saw in her she was a bit of a whiner right from the start. I think the male lead was written ...more
This was a very quick read. It's only a novella, and in my opinion Mimosa and Bo deserved a whole book.

Mimosa is a bit down and out, but Bo, her childhood friend and long-time-secret-crush is great. There is a lot of sexual tension between these two and I was surprised by some of Mimosa's actions.

If you like Nicola E. Sheridan's other stuff - you'll like this one too. Even though it's short, its steamy and completely surprising.
I’d never considered Harpies as romance heroines before, but Mimosa was intriguing and vulnerable.
A good entertaining read.
