As crown prince, Cormack is required to take a bride and his place as king. His father’s choice is Princess Nephara of their neighboring ally, the Kingdom of Caraway. But the appearance of Asrai, a fiery mermaid determined to get what she wants, and an heir to her own throne, has Cormack wondering where his heart’s loyalty lies.
Exiled from her underwater kingdom, Asrai is determined to do whatever is necessary to return to her throne, but Cormack, once a means to an end, has enchanted her. Can Asrai get the best of both worlds, or will she sacrifice her heart for her kingdom?
Love of the Sea is a captivating romance, and mermaid fantasy. I haven’t read a ton of mermaid novels, and I very much enjoyed reading something different for me.
I loved the characters. Deep, relatable, realistic. The romance is a large part of this novel, but what I loved was that it wasn’t the only focal point. Also, the romance was very well developed and there was no feeling of rush.
Mermaids, magic, and love. Love At Sea is an enjoyable read that I would recommend.
