Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule - desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken.
Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's blessed with a mind link that only Atlanteans have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below....
Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon's stolen trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions - and desires - of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds?

I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
I'm so mad because it is actually a good story, but narration was sub-par. I'm constantly multi-tasking when I'm listening to my audio books and I constantly had to stop and listen carefully on who was talking and I was not a fan of his "female voices"...kinda terrible. I really don't know if I can continue with the series, but I see they change the narration to Xe Sands for the last book. So I might pick it up again....if the other books goes on sale. This book was probably better in print.
I liked the hotness of the man-crew that is the warriors of Poseidon, but the dialogue and writing just isn't natural. I'm happy to suspend my beliefs for fantasy romance, but this guy's voices are so silly. Between that and the crappy dialogue, it just isn't believable. It isn't the worst I've had, but it wasn't for me. I won't be reading the next.
Better voices especially for Conlin and all the bad guys. So goofy.
Typical paranormal romance but I liked the Atlantis setting and the mythology involved.
Lara Adrian (Breed series) Wards (BBD series) Larrisa Ione (Demonica series) group of hot warriors saving the world with a fiesty human female in tow. Good dialogue with humor.
I agree with other reviewers Swanson not a good choice so I decided to not buy the rest of series but about half way through his voice grew on me so I did purchase rest of series.
The narration was dull and awkward. The idea of the story was good and the book wasn't bad but it wasn't great.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book was okay 3.5 overall, I had high hopes for it but I couldn't connect with the story. The story was confusing because the narrator was so bland and then he would overdo it, that my mind would wonder. Then I was wondering what the heck did I miss, but was unwilling to rewind to listen to it again. He does get better the longer you listen. Whenever Conlan was talking in his "formal speech" all I could think of was the movie Coneheads and I just couldn't take Conlan seriously. Half the time I felt the characters were all talking about something different and not on the same subject. I almost feel that the author was trying to introduce too many characters, so much that she missed the main characters personalities, they were only all about tearing each other clothes off. I didn't bond with anybody. I don't know if I am willing to buy another one, I might be willing to give it another shot but it defiantly would have to be on sale.
