Tabitha Lock's mundane life changes when her future walks out of the sea into her arms.
Attorney Tabitha Lock has put her career before everything, including her love life. Exhausted from too many late nights, early mornings, and endless days spent in court, Tabitha is at the end of her rope. Add to that the sensual dreams and voices that haunt her sleep, and she's driven to the edge of her sanity.
Jax Aquila, Mer prince and son of Poseidon, is ordered to locate a mortal female in the twenty-first century. Although this woman is unaware of it, she has vampire heritage, but her immortality was forsaken to her due to the sins of her ancestor. Old hatred and prejudice toward vampires push Jax toward pursing his own agenda and avoiding his assigned task.
When Jax meets Tabitha, he has no idea this enticing woman is the one he was sent to find. The magic of their attraction drives him to pursue the beautiful woman. When he discovers the truth, can he accept Tabitha for what she is? And can Tabitha accept herself? As they struggle with the issues at hand, an ancient evil stirs, waiting in the darkness to reclaim their lost position among the immortals. When the evil ones make their move and Tabitha's life hangs in the balance can Jax find her in time, or will she be lost to him forever?

Attorney Tabitha Lock's life is suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of Jax Aquilla, a man who came straight from the sea and she'll have to have a crash course in a whole new world if they hope to survive when evil makes it move in this enchanting paranormal romance.
There is never a dull moment in this fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of suspense, excitement and romance. Tabitha is struggling with issues of her own when she is suddenly thrust into a world full of magic, gods and evil, and the reader can't help but get caught up in all the excitement of this courtship. Jax has issues with…well everything, even things he doesn't think he has issues with but his desire for Tabitha burns hot and the chemistry that flows from this couple scorches the readers with fiery intensity. Both are strong compelling characters that really grab the reader's attention and ensure that the readers want to know all about them. The author introduces more captivating characters as well.
Lots of excitement draws the reader into the story as the well written scenes and details bring the story to life and make the reader feels as if they are part of the story. There is a couple of different sources for the evil that stalks Jax and Tabitha which keeps the adrenaline pumping. The magical worlds that Ciara Lake has created ensure that the readers enjoy their visit to each of the realms that this story encompasses.
Along with a fascinating world full of bewitching characters and a fondness for enchanting weddings, the author spices her stories with interesting elements, quite a mix of mythology, a mysterious prophecy and adds an additional sense of adventure to the stories with the time travel element that keeps readers on their toes. I was completely enthralled with this one from the very beginning and I can't wait to see what happens next.
