As PNR/UF lovin' reader, I was thrilled to receive a free copy of this book through Read2Review. I always enjoy a great story with elements of Greek Mythos, Sirens, and Merfolk in general. What I discovered while reading Renee Field's labor of love, is that this book is a diamond in the rough.

In the beginning, the story moved a little slow, but that was due to the fact that the author was laying a foundation for the reader. However, the story did not drag itself along, it sped along nicely tell

Seth, a North Seas Titan Prince, has been banished to the mainland for not following a law of his mardom, is called home. Also banished was his twin brother, Darius, who hasn't been called to return. The boys meet Jamie, a marine biologist, who is working for the company that has captured their sister. During the rescue, per his sister's request, they kidnap Jamie and bring her with them. Unbeknownst to Seth, Darius, and Jamie herself, she is a Siren. Of Royal lineage none the less.

Wow , a merman/aquaman !! This was definitely a likeable and enjoyable read . Although i found it to be really fast-paced at times , i couldnt help but love the intensity of the story growing on you .
Rapture by Renee Field really surprised me . The characters in the book were witty , funny , humourous , a tad believable and exciting to get to know to . What i really enjoyed about it was that there were two plots running simultaneously and are connected to each other . The connection was not pre

I signed up for an ARC because I liked the premise, haven't read a good PNR in a while, and hoped it might be interesting. While the story itself was not too bad, the whole thing just didn't quite live up to what I was looking for.

I find one of the most irritating things in a book is when an author feels the need to spell everything out, and just doesn’t have enough faith that the reader will see what they are getting at. There are many examples in this book, add to that mutterings like "her sec

So...I didn't like this book at all. I would give it one star but it was very well written that it just didn't seem fair. Maybe it was the premise getting in the way, or maybe it was the type of sexual content (not the sex itself, mind you) or maybe I wasn't in the right state of mind to read this book, but it's just not right. I'll be happy to forget this story, and that's something I rarely say. Hell, it took me forever to finish the damn thing!

Anywho, this story is about Titans and Sirens and

I received this book as a part of the Read 2 Review program.

I’ve never read a story about Titans and Sirens. So, most of the story was a real treat. The mythology and the main storyline of the story was really pretty good. What troubled me about the story was the sex. Don’t get me wrong. I’m no prude believe me. But in reading this story, I might have given it a five if not for the sex or reducing the amount of it. I just felt like there were two different stories that were shuffled together. Th

I have never read mermen / siren novels before, so I was very excited about this book. My oh my… what a way to be introduced into this category. I was captivated from the first page to the very last, I could not put this book down.

The two main characters, Jessie and Seth are so awesome! They have so much freaking chemistry and they really don’t disappoint at all – I mean, my glasses were steaming up with the way these two were carrying on.

Jessie is very serious about her education and career a

R2R Review:

I am a paranormal diehard, but this was my first under the sea read. I was excited about the mythology that was mixed in as well. He a Mermen, she is human. He is a prince, and she is a scientist. He kidnaps her and she thinks he is crazy. He needs to go home to under the sea, as a prince with his kind becoming extinct, he need to find a solution, and she wants to stay on dry land, even after she discovers that she is truly home. During this there is good and evil lurking in t
So there is this girl that is being kidnapped (all in good cause) and on the same day (trapped on the island guarded by dogs) she gets hot and heavy on the beach before the house. Logic? None.

On the same beautiful day the kidnapper (of course unnaturally handsome and all) insists on taking her with him (and his twin brother) to save a dolphin. Sweet right? He must be so righteus and kind hearted! I must go with him, why not! WRONG!!! You have been kidnapped, yes? It's night, yes? It's two strang

So I got this as a R2R and it's not my normal choice of book having never read anything with mermen. That being said it was pretty good. It did take me a little while to get into but I have to say that the story kept me interested.

Jaime and Seth had alot of chemistry and even tho it was instant I did enjoy seeing the constant push/pull between them.

Darius was a far more interesting character to me and I had hoped to learn a little more about him,he also needs his Sokhan and HEA maybe in a seco

As I follow the changes in publishing, I’m making more of an effort discover and read independent/hybrid authors. I want to explore the freedom of independent publishing, look at the business of being an author/publisher (or self-pubbed, though that phrase still carries an unsavory connotation to most writers). Plus, I want new stuff to read.

Normally, I prefer fantasy and sci-fi, adult or YA. But since I’m venturing into the romance arena with my group series, Perfect Coven, I thought I’d be mor

A Good Story Spoiled

I was looking to take a bit of a break from Young Adult Fiction yet still wanted to continue researching my never to be published novel and thought that Renee Field's Rapture was going to be just the thing. Sadly, while it was a fairly good story, it could have been better. Let me set the stage for you.

We have two princes exiled from their undersea realm and forced to live with - ugh! - humans for the past 10 years. We also have an Amazon of a graduate student working on her

To see this review and more like it check out my site,

I have to say that this subject matter is not the norm for me, I tend to roam freely in the land of magic, vampires, and werewolves. So when a book comes along that wants to tackle a different group of paranormals, I tend to get pretty excited about it. After all everyone wants fresh take on the genre they like to read, after all it keeps things from getting repetitive.

Generally speaking the book was an enjoyable read. Esp

The first book in the Titans series is a thrilling and action packed read. Used to logic, biologist Jamie Winters is forced to come to terms with a world that defies all logic when a sexy as sin, honest to goodness Siren drowns her and forces her to rapture into a Siren. Before she has time to adjust to those circumstances, she’s finds out he’s is the Prince of the North Seas, she’s overwhelmingly attracted to him and oh wait let’s not forget the underworld diva who wants to rule the roost.

R2R Book Review

So I was given the chance to read Rapture and when I read the synopsis, I was highly intrigued. I have read lots of paranormal, but merpeople just aren't on the list...So, I thought I would give it a try.

As I have finished this book I found that I really did like it, but what holds me back is the fact that the book should have ended yet there were added scenes that just really didn't have to be there. Maybe it was the way they were brought in or introduced, because the scenes them

Titans and Sirens among us.

Renee Field creates a fanciful, tactile world in her book rapture that is written in the tradition of fairytales, but with a modern twist. Her damsel, Jamie has just the right amount of distress and determination to make her relatable. I was drawn in by the rugged sensitivity of Seth, her hero who has more than one desirable talent. He has all the qualities you’d expect from a prince; a high sense of duty and honor with a dose of selfish arrogance that gives him an edg

Thanks R2r for a chance to read this. It was a refreshing change for my reading habits. I found it be an enjoyable, easy read. Nice blend of family conflicts, loyalties and enemies, love, self discovery and being open to change. Kudos to Ms. Field for her use of mythology in the story. It was interesting but not overpowering. I also enjoyed her descriptions of the undersea world and the transformations.
The main characters had great chemistry. It was nice to see Jamie blossom into a stronger wom

Despite being a big Greek Myth fan, this is the first book I've really read that touches on it this much, other than PJ - it's not my usual genre, and I don't usually stray too far away from it. I wouldn't class this as Parnormal. This time, though, I'm glad I did stray. If I didn't, I'd have probably never found this story. It kept me interested, I loved it. I had very few issues with some of the plot holes, and found that I could easily look around them if I tried hard enough.

Very interesting premise.

Very interesting premise.

While this story did not at first keep my attention, I kept reading and finally was captured. The larger than life Titan hero and his love for a "human"while starting slow did peak my interest and the love . scenes while unusual were also erotic. While I might have wished for a bit smoother telling and not such jumps from one scene to another, in the end it had an ending that soothed any rough spots.

Finished it, but...

it took me a while. I was able to put it down and walk away several times. When I am fully engaged in a book, I can read it in two days. This one didn't do it for me. It also didn't make me want to read any of her other works. Maybe Mer-folk just aren't my thing.

The female protagonist is starting to come out as a real Mary Sue and it's painful to watch. I'm not sure about the plot, though. It's kind of engaging, I might stick around to find out, but for now I'm going to stop reading this.
