Seaborne is a memorable debut that I could not put down. It's a different, unique story that was engaging and fast paced. I was charmed and enchanted by Morgan, a sea creature who knows the rules, but his heart is on his sleeve, and he tends to think with it instead of his head.
The heroine, Claire, is a heroine with a tragic past. Because of an accident, she is permanately disabled and has come to Seaborne to heal emotionally and to be left alone. She begins having dreams, and dreams of ...more
Enjoyed a few of the characters (handsome handsome Alex), but mostly liked the lore building stuff. Mermaids and fancy cities and dropping random facts about the other magical races.
Don't think I'll pick up any of the others, but wasn't an awful ...more
Quick & Dirty: Hot Prince. ‘Nuff said.
Opening Sentence: The summer storm swept in without warning.

You see, in a few pages we will be experiencing the underwater world of the “lost” city of ...more
I was really looking forward to reading this book and was disappointed that it wasn't what I had originally anticipated. I liked the author's idea of the hidden world of Atlantis and the people that it inhabits. The story was to "choppy" and awkward to read and didn't have the flow it should have. There were so many subplots which I found unnecessary and took away from the romance.
Morgan is the eldest son of King Poseidon. But rather than a Warrior, like his father, he is a kind and ...more

Shrouded in mist, the hidden shoreline near her family's Maine estate is a place of refuge for Claire Bishop. There, she can forget the physical limitations imposed by a tragic accident and escape judgmental eyes.

Isn't that enough? Couldn't that be enough of a story, romance, trouble, etc.
Apparently the author doesn't think so. She adds:
-A crazy ex-husband who is a sex addict, deals in drugs and a murderer
-A controlling adoptive father (who turns out to be her real father) who won't trust her despite the fact that she is a rich, intelligent, 30 year old woman.
-The king ...more
claire has retreated to her home in maine following an accident that leaves her paralysed from the waiste down. morgan, who is not supposed to have contact with humnas, sees claire and is drawn to her. he takes her under the sea with him.
what i liked: the premise. people of the sea? that's different, count me in!
what i didn't like: the execution. rather than every thing being clear, it felt like you were swimming through mud. it was a struggle for me to finish it. i didn't really care ...more
It was missing some depth because while we learnt a bit about the Atlantean world it didn't go into any detail. There were no emotions engaged. Then add into the mix that the author gave the bad guy had the heroes name as his surname. If the author was trying to be funny well ahh nope not funny.
And I'm not entirely sure I agree with assessments that Poseidon and Richard were 'great' fathers...from what little we are told it seems unlikely.
I would like to read Alex and Orion's story ...more
I loved the setting, how a woman who lost everything still fights for her life and finally finds happiness.
Morgan is so sweet amd romantic. Could have been more of an alpha male, knowing he is Crown Prince but I couldn t hold it against him. The undersea world is beautifully described, as the many characters involved and give a trye personnality and originality to this book. It is sometimes almost like a painting and makes you want to dive with the Atlanteans.
Overall, I'd give this book a 3 1/2 stars. It was a quick read, a bit predictable, but that was what I was looking for.
These two have so many things standing in their way. Claire who can't walk. Morgan who is not allowed to be by humans and a 1/2 brother that is trying to kill him.
It seems these two fight all sides to be together.
Free kindle book- was actually pretty good-twist on the traditional romance novel. Read it while trying to go through all the free books on my kindle and delete some of them. This one actually pulled me in, so that definitely goes in its favor.
(Corny cover picture- ugh!)
