Publisher's Summary

Raef, a lonely merman, spends his days watching the dashing Lord Haverford from afar and dreaming of love. When Haverford is robbed by a pirate, Raef vows to reclaim the stolen goods, hoping his victory will buy him the happiness he yearns for with Haverford.

But Jon Kemp does not match what Raef knows about pirates, and the simple quest Raef anticipated turns out to be an epic journey. For while Jon might be a nobler man than Raef believed, he's still a pirate. Love and loyalty are not on Jon's agenda, and he certainly has no plans to love someone not entirely human....

Outstanding Surprise

I bought this book as a bit of brain candy with fairly low expectations. What I got was a fantastic swashbuckler with a wonderful story. The characters are easy to love and, despite it being a romance for two men, Berrisford doesn't leave the ladies out. The women in this book are just as enchanting as our leading men and I'd love to read a book just about them!

There are points when the wording seems a little goofy, but when you consider it's from Raef's point of view, it makes it actually very endearing. Overall, there were no boring parts. Each resolution had a new twist that kept my interest. It was romantic and sexy without being too overloaded with smut. I'd consider this book a very pleasant surprise.

Uuuugh

A really good narrator could have probably brought my overall rating up one star. Unfortunately, this book doesn’t have a good narrator. The rhythm of his reading is weird and choppy, and he keeps gulping every now and then. The story itself had some potential, but then the main character turned out to be an idiot, and every time we get to anything romantic or sexual, I have to fight the urge to roll my eyes. Don’t bother with this one.

underwhelming

Bless the voice actor's heart he really gets into those sex scenes. I had to force my way through most of this. The minor characters were much more interesting than the main ones and I just wish the book had been about them.
