Publisher's Summary

In Debbie Herbert's debut novel, there are two secrets, each one with a deadly consequence…Shelly Connors's worlds - on land and in the sea - are turned upside down when an evening swim turns into a nightmare. On a sweltering night deep in the bayou, the mystical mermaid witnesses a horrifying act. With a monstrous killer now hot on her trail, her life and the lives of her kin are in jeopardy.

Terrified of becoming the next victim, Shelly has no choice but to turn to Sheriff Tillman Angier. Tillman has had his intense gray eyes on the sultry honey-haired beauty for a while. The feelings are mutual…and impossible to ignore. But he's determined to solve the murders, and he knows Shelly's hiding something. Can she trust him with her deepest secret?

    Story
    "Serial Killer with a side of Sea Creature"
    If you could sum up Siren's Secret in three words, what would they be?

    Mermaid witnesses murder


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Siren's Secret?

    Definitely when the Serial Killer breaks into Shelley's house and leaves behind the panties and broken mermaid figurine.


    What three words best describe Stephanie Bentley’s performance?

    Slightly annoying tones


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the Serial Killer remembers that one good memory with his mother.


    Any additional comments?

    Siren's Secret by Debbie Herbert is part of Harlequin's Nocturne line - which is described as dark, sensuous and dangerous - where paranormal and normal collide.

    This book definitely does that.

    First, how gorgeous is this cover? I'm sure you realize by now that I love a good cover and this one was beautiful.

    When I picked up Siren's Secret - actually I got it for free from someone who won it from Debbie herself but already had their own copy - I thought this was going to be a fun, light read. Its about mermaids! I love mermaids but I find it rare that you see someone go truly into their dark side. Actually, I have a hard time finding books about mermaids for adults period.

    Needless to say I was excited and when I opened it up, a fun light read was not what I got. It was better.

    Debbie Herbert not only brings out the darker drives of mermaids but she takes you deep into the mind of a serial killer. Its easy to have a villain to hate but she actually makes you feel a little bit sorry for this guy. Not enough that I thought he shouldn't be punished but you kind of understood where he was coming from.

    She captures life in the Alabama Bayou wonderfully. I have to say that I'm really hoping Jet gets her own book soon because she was probably my favorite character in the book.

    This is a great debut novel and definitely wets my appetite for more which is why its under appetizers. I was very excited to find out that this is, in fact, the beginning of a series produced with Harlequin called Dark Seas. So be on the look out for book two, Siren's Treasure which is still in the works. It sounds like its going to be Jet's book. I'm really, really hoping it is. ;)

    If you're looking for something a dark, something with mermaids, and something set in a small Bayou town, this is the book for you. Check it out. I enjoyed it.

    I did enjoy READING it more this time as I found the narrators voice slightly annoying, without a wide rang so it kept bringing me out of the story.

    "Mermaids"
    Any additional comments?

    So. Mermaids. Yes, I am shallow enough that a story having mermaids is enough to entice me to want to read the book (or listen in this case). But it was so worth it. This is a fairly engaging story.

    I didn't particularly care for the bad guy in this book. Or the type of dog he had (which hits my max height requirement for calling them yappy ankle biters). But regardless of my feelings towards the dog, I still didn't like the whole near end of having to rescue the dog.

    I ADORED Eddie and how well Shelly and Tillman interacted with him.

    Eddie wasn't shown as being the bad guy just because his brain works differently than the 'norm'. Which is fantastic to see. Seeing positive or neutral relatable characters in media makes you feel a little less alone in the world. Or at least it does for me and most of the autistic people I know.

    I also like the growth from Tillman and Eddie's mother. How she goes from useless jerk to learning and growing up and being a responsible adult.

    Overall, this was a pretty good story and if you like mermaids and portrayals of mermaids as things other than just pretty half human half fish people, you'll probably enjoy this story.

    "Great read..Terrible narrator.."
    Any additional comments?

    Great read. Exciting from the beginning. Nice sexual tension and, eventually, sex. Nice love story. Nice suspense story.
    Really liked Tillman and Shelly. I thought Jet was a little brash but I liked her, and Lily. Melkie definitely had some problems!!
    I would definitely recommend this book and read this author again.

    As to the narrator: She did most of the voices OK but I have to tell you it sounded like she was gasping before almost every new sentence she took such a noisy breath. I finished the book but I could never listen to her again. And I had to cringe every time she did Tia's voice, it was sooo bad. Ms. Bentley needs to do someting about her loud intakes of breath while reading or find a new line of work. Sorry!
