Arianna always felt like she didn’t belong in the world where she was born. Ever since she was little, she used to hide behind the rocks in the sea, and watch the human family who spent their summers on that island. Over the years, there was nothing she wished more than to be like them, especially so she could get close to Blake, the human boy who she saw turn into a troub ...more

Arianna would do just about anything to have legs and be a part of the human boy's world. Many times she comes to the surface just to catch a glimpse of him and his family. But Arianna must give it all up and marry one of her own. No longer able to ignore her duties, she is forced to marry Bram and live happily ever after.

As if! Arianna already knows that her heart belongs to a boy she has never even spoken to. And when given the opportunity to walk the earth and be with him, Arianna takes it…no

What an intriguing beginning to a wonderful and captivating new series by Daniele Lanzarotta! I was hooked from page 1 and simply couldn't put it down! The original storyline will keep you guessing and mesmerized page by page and sentence by sentence. I can't wait to find out what happens next in this series!

I feel like this took me forever to finish. I liked it though because it was a different take on the mermaid story. AND the ending!! What a really great cliffhanger. Definitely makes me want to read the next book.

Daniele has crossed over into adult paranormal from YA paranormal flawlessly with her first book in her A Mermaid’s Curse trilogy.

Arianna is a mermaid who has always felt like she didn’t belong in her world. She longs to be human and to be with the human boy Blake she has watched all her life. She has watched him turn into an unhappy man and wants nothing more then to make him happy and see his smile. Blake is stuck with a life he doesn’t want. Controlled by his dad in every aspect even down to

Danielle has done it again with this beautiful mermaid story. I fell in love with the whole book from beginning to end, it was romantic and full of suspense, and I never knew what was going to happen next. There were a few twists that I was not expecting especially the ending of the book, I don't want to give it away but let's just say the Queen of cliffhangers has done it again and in a big way!

I loved all 3 of the main characters but the one I really liked the most is Arianna, who gives up h

I was very intrigued with this book just by the cover. I love mermaid stories and can never find enough of them. This book did NOT disappoint! I was emotionally attached to Arianna from the start and felt like I was going through everything right alongside her. The author has a really good writing style that is easy to follow which made the book even harder to put down. This book really makes a person think about their own issues and reminded me of what is really important in my own life. This i ...more

I'm not going to write another synopsis, just my views. First, I must say I wasn't sure about the mermaid thing....but hey, I write about werewolves and they aren't my thing either. Well slap me silly, what a fun read. Mermaid loves human, who is engaged (or almost) to another human...to a sinister brother, a horrible man, a lovely child and pissed off ocean. My kind of angst, romance, imagination, and rainy afternoon read. It didn't rain for me, but rain would have made the mermaid thing that m ...more

A Mermaid's Curse is a wonderful love story about forbidden romance, finding where you belong, and taking chances. Arianna's internal struggle is so vivid you'll feel it, and the external forces driving her and Blake apart will pull at your heart. Blake's issues are as intense as his passion, but the love scenes are tasteful and nothing close to overdone.

The ending kind of threw me for a loop, and left me a bit wanting, but it certainly made me want to read the next one! When's it coming, Daniel

A fairy tale romance meets the real world and a forbidden love is created! Daniele has out done herself this time. I adored her angels, I couldn't get enough of her vampires, and her mermaids pulled me under from page one and wouldn't let me up!
Insatiable is a fitting title because I just can't get enough of these characters. I need to know what happens, and once again Daniele has left us with a major cliff hanger!

At first I wasn't on team Blake, his character was so passive - but in the end h

This book blew me away and left me speechless. I am still in disbelief to what a creative unique, yet sexy and intoxicating story this was!



Arianna was a mermaid who spent the better part of her life wishing she had legs and a certain someone named Blake. Her father was not happy about her pining over a human, so he decided it was time to marry her off to a man named Bram. After the wedding she decided to leave and find her happiness.

This is my first mermaid story, it was recommended by a friend. So I decided to take a chance because I usually don't go for mermaid stories . Well I am glad I did. This was a very fast read for me . I started in the afternoon and was done by the time it was bed time. Arianna is a mermaid that so wants to be on the land with legs and to fall in love with the object of her desire Blake. She has wanted him since she was young , she watched him grow up and her love grew with it . But alas she has p

This was a great read, I've never read a mermaid story before, but Daniele has made me a fan. I like her character's and the world she's created around them. I can say that I am not a fan of cliffhangers, but I will continue to read more in this series no matter how much it pains me!

I won Insatiable: A Mermaid's Curse (audible version) in a giveaway on Facebook. I normally do not like audio books because I generally don't like to be read to. However, I was immediately taken in with the premise of the story so I gave it a try. A Mermaid's Curse was spectacular "read". It was an amazing take on a fairy tale. This story sucked me in from the very beginning and didn't let go. I definitely recommend this book for anyone that enjoys a love story, magic and fairy tales. But be war ...more

I was given the book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I have to say that this ultimately one of the best mermaid books I have read. I love mermaids but coming in contact with a great story is very hard. Daniele did an excellent job of making the characters stand out well.

The love story is perfectly done. It was hard to contain how much Blake and Arianna felt between each other. At the same time, the other characters that affect their relationship is a lot for one relationship to go thro

Arianna is a mermaid who is the next in line to rule. She has never felt she belonged and she loved to go the island where she noticed a boy named Blake. She has always wanted to know what made him have the look in his eyes. She knew that he had a lot on her shoulders. When she is approached one day to have one of her dreams come true, she takes it.

She never knew given in to the guy she loved would cause so many problems. She knows that there is more going on then anyone is telling her. When she

I think Daniele did a wonderful job creating a vivid picture so that the reader could feel for each of the characters in some way. I think Owen is intriguing and can't wait to see what happens in Fated, book 2. Quick read - I like books that start and have a fast enough pace that keep you moving through it until you realize you are at the end. Daniele accomplished this. Great job!

I was enthralled by Daniele Lanzarotta's Insatiable - A Mermaid's Curse. This story will captivate your heart and enchant you. A beautiful fairytale with a twist. Beautiful read.
Suzanna Lynn
So.... I really wanted to like this book. I stuck through it half way but finally just couldn't finish it. Even the whole mystery about what Owen is or why he has this power wasn't enough to keep me committed to reading.

I felt like I was being force-fed information. You know, like you ask someone for pizza but they want to tell you every ingredient and how it's made? The whole thing felt very forced and unbelievable.

Even if you take out the fact that this mermaid is thrust into the human world

Well, nothing like being left hanging lol. Good story. Kinda had the feeling good ole dad was behind Owens "deal" My only issue is that I feel things went a little to fast between Blake and Arianna. Like there should have been more time to get to know one another, before the "I love you's" started flying. No disrespect to the author. I love your books Daniele. Other than that. The whole concept is pretty cool. Certainly has a "little mermaid" ring to it. Can't wait for Fated!

This is my second mermaid story as I decided to break away from the usual vamps and werewolves. Is there a written rule somewhere saying to not develop the characters and their relationship??? My god they jumped in bed and fell in love so quick and the drama was beyond annoying. Someone has to have a backbone. The brother Owen was more intriguing than most of them. The mother just automatically ok with this random girl she's never met stay in their house while they are not home. Even the beginni ...more
