Bound by a curse, two mermen find the greatest love of their lives, but can they keep it?
Justin is a merman who has been raised on land. He hates his fins and wants nothing to do with his heritage.
Lucas is an ambitious merman who has lived his whole life in Atlantis. He has spent his adulthood hiding his sexuality because homosexual relationships are forbidden in the underwater city. Now he has been sent on a mission by King Nereus to locate his oldest son and bring him back to Atlantis to take his place as the heir to the throne.
Although his mission seems impossible, Lucas finds help from the Atlantean Goddess of Love, little knowing that she has her own reasons for bringing Lucas and Justin together.
Justin is no stranger to immortals, having been raised by two of them, but he has no idea of the consequences of angering the Goddess of Love. When he insults her, she curses him to find love only to lose it forever shortly after. As the love ‘em and leave ‘em type, Justin isn't overly concerned, at least until Lucas enters his life and he sees how the curse will end.
Together they could have the greatest love of their lives, but only if they can appease the furious goddess before their time runs out.

He wants nothing to do with his heritage but now Justin has to make a choice--save the merman he's attracted to or lose his soulmate to the curse of an angry goddess in this spellbinding paranormal romance.
Lucas is an ambitious merman who hides his homosexuality because it is forbidden and the reader can't help but get drawn into the story as Lucas is sent on a mission to find the heir, only for them both to be faced with an impossible situation. The chemistry is mind-blowingly hot and the sex scenes could boil the seas but the relationship is in a hot bed of trouble full of emotional turbulence as Lucas and Justine manage to anger a goddess who has plans of her own for them both. Strong compelling characters grab the reader's attention from the very beginning and refuse to let go while the fast paced, smooth flowing plot captivates readers with lots of suspense, turmoil, excitement and romance.
Anticipation builds throughout the story as Justin fights his destiny and expectation and passion builds as Lucas tries to change his mind. There's also a lot of spine tingling excitement building when the Goddess of Love places a curse on the two mermen that leaves them little choice and a deadly time frame with the situation continuing to grow more intense and emotional as they arrive in the Sunken City. The well written scenes and details paint vivid images that bring the story to life and make it easy for the reader to become absorbed in the story while the intriguing events ensure that there is never a dull moment.
This fascinating series continues to captivate and entertain with a world full of magic, passion and sexy mermen so there was no way I could put this book down once I started reading it. I was completely enthralled with Justin and Lucas' story and I can't wait for another visit to the Sunken City.
