Raef, a lonely merman, spends his days watching the dashing Lord Haverford from afar and dreaming of love.
When Haverford is robbed by a pirate, Raef vows to reclaim the stolen goods, hoping his victory will buy him the happiness he yearns for with Haverford.
But Jon Kemp does not match what Raef knows about pirates, and the simple quest Raef anticipated turns out to be an epic journey.
For while Jon might be a nobler man than Raef believed, he’s still a pirate. Love and loyalty are not on Jon’s agenda, and he certainly has no plans to love someone not entirely human…
I love Kay's writing so much I wanted her to write for Love Lane!
This is a gorgeous story featuring good guys, bad guys, some delicious language, pirates, soldiers, and most of all merman (and mermaids!).
The way Kay writes the details of the merman just had me smiling – the flip of the tail, the pain when they change from mermaid to human, the complicated timing of changing. She has created a stunning world that I loved. And the dreaded pirate Kemp is just so well written. A lovely romance with a naive merman and a worldly pirate is just fun and romantic and hot and very special.
