Unique and smart paranormal romance
Maine, 1905: historian Frances Schmidt travels north in hopes of reading lawyer Garrett Hathaway’s collection of books about mermen and mermaids. Ready to charm a crotchety old man, she’s surprised to find a handsome young music-lover. But while Garrett seems more than willing to be her friend, he shies from getting any closer.
Garrett is hiding a terrible secret – no one knows that he is a merman. When he touches salt water, he sprouts gills and a blue, scaly tail. Despite his growing love for Frances, he is certain that she will see him as a monster if she ever learns the truth.
Can Frances change his mind? Or is she in over her head?
