I bought this because I love mermaid stories. I didn't know it was a romance novel when I bought it. There were some spots I really didn't care for because they involved a female character refusing intimate attentions from a male character, and he just did what he wanted anyway and the female character went along with it. No means no.
The plot was fast-paced and more imaginative than some, and character development was good for the most part. I did not like the ending- it felt stilted and rushed, like the writer was trying to cram in a lot of material into a limited number of pages. And I didn't really understand the whole "locket" and "lost souls" device... I really enjoyed the first two stories but the last one just didn't ring true for me.
