Can a broken heart find love at the bottom of the ocean?

Destiny calls Jonathan home.

Jonathan Lemke thought spending two weeks alone with his partner in a beachside cottage would help to rekindle the lost passion of their ten-year union. He’d chosen Tybee Island, a quiet seaside community on the Georgia coast east of Historic Savannah. Jonathan had spent his childhood growing up on the pristine shores of the barrier islet which continues to hold a special place in his heart.
The romantic surprise backfires when Paul, Jonathan’s partner, rushes off to Chicago for the chance to woo a high profile client, leaving Jonathan alone and brokenhearted until a chance meeting with a mysterious and seductive stranger linked to a beloved island legend provides a chance at discovering forever love.
But someone with strong familial ties to Tybee Island is desperate to expose its secrets and avenge a grudge decades in the making. An assailant so threatened by the forces of nature that defy explanation, he will stop at nothing to unmask ancient island lore…even if he must kill to prove it.

really good!

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Jonathon plans a romantic break with Paul, only to find Paul not coming. So Jonathon travels alone to the place he grew up in, and immerses himself 
in his memories. When he meets the handsome stranger on the shore, Jonathon is pulled into a world he knew nothing about. A world that 
cannot be exposed. A world that might mean Jonathon never sees his friend again. Darker forces are at work, though; forces that wish harm 
to the stranger's kind.

I haven't read many mer-people books, and its always nice to read something different. And this is different. And it was good!

Its written slightly differently. We get Jonathon, in the third person, and they we get some of those darker forces, and I was hoping we'd get the 
stranger too, which would have rounded it all off nicely, but we don't and this is why I can't stretch to 5 stars. This reason alone.

Its almost clean too, which, strangely for me, I really enjoyed! I do like a bit of sizzle and steam, and there isn't really any here. Passion and 
love, yes, but none of the sex. I really REALLY enjoyed that! Just goes to show, just because you love something in one book, you might not in 
another. And vice versa. 

A very well written, well delivered, different story. I would like to read more by this author, and even better, if there is a follow on to this story. 

I've tried to keep very vague so as not to give too much away. But this is a really good book!

4 stars
