John Eagletalon had no idea what the government intended when it assigned him to its latest secret project - an icy blonde beauty with a miraculous ability. All he knew was that he owed Uncle Sam fourteen more months of his life, and if it meant being this woman's partner and bodyguard until he'd paid his dues, he'd find a way to endure the ordeal.

I really enjoyed this story. I really liked that rather than having the mermaid be a mythological magical creature in a paranormal world, she is a regular person with a few developmental differences. The story was very suspenseful with a ton of action. I enjoyed the main characters and their personalities too. All in all, a really good read.

Recommends it for: ppl that like paranormal romance/comedy/mystery
I was able to meet the author which added to my enjoyment of this book. I enjoyed reading how an unlikely couple feel in love and essentially saved each other. If you like paranormal romance I think you will like this book, read about a mermaid that was being exploited by a government agency before she saved herself and found love.

Aequana by Linda Mooney is a modern mermaid story. I loved it. The characters are very strong. It's suspenseful and action packed. The hero is a Native/American navy seal frogman and the two work together on special government missions. I highly reccomend it.

not for me. the story was really far fetched. i guess if you believe in love at 1st sight and like stories with a woman needs to be rescued then this book is for you.

Maja Van der Beek is more commonly known under the code name of Aequana. In her early twenties, she lives a sheltered life and is allowed to indulge herself. However, the one thing Aequana does not have is freedom. She is a mermaid. More specifically – a ‘malformation’ which occurred while she was still in the womb has left her with gills and not-fully-formed toes. Consequently, Aequana can live as easily underwater as on land. There’s a catch though – she ‘belongs’ to the US military. Born and ...more
