Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)

Seduced by the Sea Lord was a unique, refreshing, and different read. I’ve not had the pleasure of read Ms. Night nor have I picked up a merman book before. Both the author and concept where new to me.

Hot Sexy Warrior Mermen. Oh My!!

The start was good, but a little slow. It took some time for me to get into the book. As for the characters they aren’t overly complicated. Ms. Night does a good job of explaining her mermen, throwing in a little about Atlantis and what it once was, and how the counc

Hmm. This was new. Never read a merman before.

While the plot was interesting enough, the writing and the world-building could definitely use some work. It was a little confusing cause I can't decide whether the underwater world is supposed to be all high tech like from Aquaman or like a caveman tribal behind the times version and that's just one of the inconsistencies.

But I also realize that in books like these, the first book is either the strongest-the world building at it's highest from the g

3.5 stars was a little hard to get into and I can't say mermen are my jam. But I enjoyed it's uniqueness.

2.5 stars

Okay so... I don't think Mermen do it for me lol. I knew not to take this book seriously and I didn't. I just wanted some ridiculous fun and I got some of that. It was ridiculous and entertaining that way but after a while, I lost interest. I wish I could have cared for the characters or the plot a bit more but it was alright overall. I enjoyed the silliness. I don't think I'll be reading more from this series but who knows, maybe I'll change my mind when the right challenge task comes

I love paranormal books. It can be witches, vampires, dragons, shifters, merpeople, etc. it doesn't matter what the category is I enjoy paranormal. Whenever I find an author who writes paranormal they automatically get a 2 point star just because it takes a lot of imagination and it takes a lot of focus to write a paranormal romance book.

This book started off really annoying to me. My 2 star rating was slowly turning into a 1 star very quickly. Lucy drove me nuts. From their very first encounte

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

This AMAZINGLY FRESH, UNIQUE, FAIRY-TALE LIKE ROMANCE IS A TRUE WINNER! I am utterly and completely infatuated with these mermen! My favorite Disney movie growing up was The Little Mermaid and to have such a story that puts a unique twist on such a classic perked me right up, but what I got was something even MORE special. To say Torun is one of a kind merman and hero is putting it lightly. He AMAZED me with his loyalty and protectiveness, his caring, and his lo

Down by the Sea......

Lucy has reached rock bottom after her ex-husband cheated her out of everything, she is reduced to operating what used to be a lucrative business to a rinky tink boat that is forever spewing oil. But Lucy hasn't lost her spirit to travel the waters and fish in the hopes of maybe getting lucky again. When she hooks a body on her anchor, her rescuing instincts come to the forefront, not knowing that she is the one that's going to be rescued not from drowning either.

Torun dares

I tried to get into this book. It was real good in the beginning but then it stalled out for me. It almost seemed as if the author was just getting lazy as the story went on and tried to tie up the loose ends without the detail that was used in the first half. It was rushed and unpolished.

Also, there were some disprecancies in the timeline. When they came back to the surface and her ex said she had been declared dead and they had her funeral last week.? Co

by Starla Night 
I received a copy directly from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Seduced by the Sea Lord is a sweet paranormal romance that rides just below the boiling point, focusing more on the mythology and the rebuilding of the heroine's, Lucy, well being and confidence. Lucy is a deep sea diver, a sort of wet suited Lara Croft. After her greatest find, a large Sea Opal, her husband takes off with the Opal. There ar

Fantastic Series - I just cant get enough. After reading these 4 stories, I'm an addicting fan. I look forward to the next installments. It's a given that I love mermaid stories but these stories have a built history behind them from not only the previous books but the author gives a insight to their past that is just heart breaking and in her stories they get redemption in their soul searching truth with their true mates.

Hot Books!

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book. The plot was good the characters were alright. I loved the guardians! They were my favorite part of the whole book. It started out a bit slow and by the end something just didn't sit right. ...more

An okay read, I would say. It started out good but as the story nears the middle, my interest sorts of fizzles out. So I had to reduce my rating to a two.

P.S. The Hero referring to his future baby as a young fry cracks me up every single time.

Wow, this was a fresh spin on a nautical paranormal merman meets human lady romance. This book had mystery, suspense, action, love, romance, and so much more. I can't wait to read more of the series. ...more

The beginning started off a little rocky for me, and read very rushed for me. Once the story got under the sea and into Torun's world, it started gelling just right for me.

The mer world is incredible! I can't wait to explore it more in the rest of the series.
I’m still on the fence with this series. I’ll have to read the next book to decide how much I really like it.

I had never read or listened to a story about a Merman when I read this book but admit that I have now read the whole series. This one does hold a place in my heart because of Lucy who I found particularly easy to relate to because she like a lot of women has insecurities about her body, particularly as her ex-husband made her feel like a failure because of her inability to have a child.

This story starts with Lucy finding the body of a man tangeled in an anchor's rope whilst she is on a dive, s

Lucy is divorced, broke, and her now-ex husband stole her major archeological find a few years ago. To redeem herself, she’s searching for more Sea Opals off the coast of Cancun and finds a body instead. After she drags the sexy dark-haired man on her small ship, he wakes up and sets out to seduce her.
Torun is in search for a human bride but the mer people have very strict rules about what type of woman is appropriate. After two fellow mer warriors leave him for dead, he finds himself on a human
 B. Sinsational
This is NOT like a dime a dozen book. It felt fresh, intriguing (yes it has a good plot as well), charming and it is most definitely greatly entertaining. It brings to mind tales of the old where there is always a pearl of wisdom and truth that can be drawn from it (it offers a whole collier of them in the most generously caring manner). Inside you even find a witty and fast dialogue (LOVE IT!), hunky mermen (OH-LALALA!!), x-rated scenes , lovable characters, and a tale spun in a very gorgeous m ...more

Lucy Shaw is on a quest to find another Sea Opal. The first one was taken by her now ex-husband, Blake. Torun is a Warlord of Sireno. Lucy found him unconscious under the water thinking he was a dead man. She hauls him up to her boat and discovers he’s alive. The first thing he does after waking is to try and claim Lucy as his bride.

Fun, sweet, steamy romance in human & mer warrior worlds

The world of mer warriors is fascinatingly beautiful and different from the human world on land. Seeing, speaking, hearing, feeling, tasting and moving (swimming) are enhanced to amazing degrees, serving to facilitate their extensive interaction with each other and the ocean's plants and animals.

A Treasure From The Depths!

I wasn't sure I was going to like this angle on a shifter novel, as I feel that the shape shifting genre has gotten a little out of hand and kind of "jumped the shark". (The other day, I saw a blurb for a SNAKE shifter! Ugh!) But, this take on a Mer-shifter (Merman) came off as a completely believable shifter scenario/character. The plot was new, fresh, full of romance and sprinkled with bits of humor throughout.

I especially identified with Lucy, as I have body image

Lucy is at an all time personal low. She is deeply in debt, her husband just divorced her because she can't have children and she has gained a lot of weight. She has one final hope to pull her life out of the toilet. She is going to run another expedition to secure rare Sea Opals. While on the water of the shore of Cancun, she finds the injured body of a man tangled in her anchor chain. She frees him and hauls his body onto the boat. To her surprise, he is still breathing. And what a man he is! ...more

Repetitive, unrealistic and lacking chemistry

Throughout the whole book all we here from Lucy is that she is fat and can’t have children so she can’t be with the merman guy. She tells him she can’t give him what he wants, then he beats his chest and tells her she is his and of course she will have his children. Or “fry”, as he calls them, which was off putting. It just got really old. And nobody makes a big deal of this guy getting pulled out of the water and claiming he is going to make her his

So I started with this one on KU, but I actually grabbed the set of the first 4 books so I'm in the middle of the second, and I'm having a lot of fun with them. :)

So, the basic premise is that mermen have, historically, bargained great big sea opals (see also, droplets of sap from their sacred underwater life trees) for a bride with super secret islanders. Unfortunately, the modern world has these islands ending up abandoned and the mermen are having a population decline.
