GENRE: Paranormal Erotic Romance
With his throne on the line, Brodie Murdock needs to secure his kingdom by taking a bride. When the only woman he’s ever wanted steps right into his path, he knows the legends are true. She is his destiny. The feisty female isn’t hard to seduce into his bed for the night, but she’s proving difficult to convince they are meant for forever. And then there’s the secret that could destroy any chance of their future—a secret he’s not ready to confess. Not until his stubborn soul mate admits she needs him for more than sex.
She pulled away from him. “You don’t understand what I’m talking about, do you?”
He needed to grasp what the mermaid meant to her. Was it just to be different from the other girls, or did she really want a life as a mermaid? “Why don’t you tell me what it means to you?”
“The story goes, a mermaid sees a prince on a ship and falls in love with him. The problem is he’s human. They can never be together. Then the wicked sea witch offers to make her human if she gives up her voice. She decides he’s worth the sacrifice. She becomes a mute human with legs, and they live happily ever after.”
“That’s quite a story.” He needed her to tell him more. “Do you believe in happily ever after?”
“That’s fiction.” The mermaid on her shoulder appeared to judge him.
Brodie touched the mermaid on her shoulder. “Well, I believe in happily ever after, and I think you do, too.”
She brushed his hand from her shoulder, as if it were an annoying fly. “That’s for romantics. I live in the real world.”
He bent and kissed her shoulder. “How about we compromise on happily for now?”
