Mere Temptation is Daisy Harris’ first published work and will available this month in e-format with the paperback due next year! I was so excited to get my hands on an e-copy for review! I haven’t seen many mermaid stories being written and no other stories with ocean shifters. The book did not disappoint!

Isa is a mermaid caught between fryhood and adulthood. Too old to be a fry and yet not ready to become an adult. The only way to transition is to give yourself to a mermaid/ocean s

I needed to read a book with a 'water shifter' as part of a book challenge. Noticing 'Ocean Shifters' in the title of this story, I read the synopsis and figured it would fit perfectly.

I enjoyed the mere (mermaid) shifter side of the story and even the dragons, but then vampires were added to the mix and it was all just a bit too much for me. I prefer the shifter stories I read to focus on one type of shifter or two at the most, three or four and I'm a goner.

Not bad reading but I did find a lot of unclear parts. it took me a while to understand the world they lived in and there are still some unknown details. But it is well written and the general sorry line is good

Have you ever looked for an excuse to enable you to do something that you really wanted to do? Maybe you thought it wasn't the best course of action but you really really wanted it anyway. Well, if so then you'll find you have a great deal in common with the heroine in this story.

When I received this title and skimmed the first little bit I was sort of skeptical. The title did not suggest mermaids in any way to me and I wasn't sure what to make of this development, but before long I was totally

Rachel's Review

Just when you think you’ve read everything in Paranormal Romance, along comes a fresh voice. Daisy Harris has captured a world of mere people, dragon shifters, and crazy mad-scientists that will keep you flipping the page to find out what she’s going to throw at you next. With a smooth blend of emotion, heat, and bio-research, the story grips anyone searching for the different.

I loved the raw intensity behind the emotion in the story and the urgency behind the mission

So, apparently the characters are adults now but the way it was juvenilely written seemed like they were still teens. The transitioning was somewhat off as well. A thing would happen and then another thing would happen suddenly, like wasn't this character doing another thing? How'd he or she get there so fast?

A very interesting take on the mermaid sub-genre. There were a few plot things that came across a little predictable, but they didn't bother me in the end.

It is racy, but then, what from Daisy Harris isn't?
