Mermaids. Mating. And a splash of magical fantasy. Surrender to the siren song in Cruel and Splendid Mermaids, a paranormal romance filled with aquatic world-building and underwater suspense. 

Meet Ellara Merme, your not-so-average mermaid with a week left on her clock before she either mates with a human and becomes a coveted Neptune baby-maker, OR she gets a lifetime pass to the ocean's version of becoming an underwater slave. Yeah, not great career choices. (Please note, this is not a story ‘bout the babies, just the baby-making…)

Just when Ellara's desperation levels are hitting a new high tide, she spots a sailor in distress and, when given the chance to mate with a rescued captain, she swoops in to save him. Plot twist: the sailor turns out to be a lady. Crap. Still, Ellara's altruistic actions do find a silver lining. This girl can help her find a mate on land!

Now, Ellara and the sailor-turned-wing-woman hatch a plan to help the mermaid get down to mating. But there's a catch—the guy Ellara seduces can't be Sailor Girl's hunky older brother. Yep, no matter how cute he looks in his gray cotton sweats, that guy is off-limits to the mermaid. Got it?!

With the clock ticking louder than ever, Ellara and her newfound friend navigate the treacherous waters of love, duty, magic, and, let's be real, some serious mermaid shenanigans. This siren has a lot to learn about dry land and human relations. Will Ellara find her prince charming before time runs out? Can she do it with a touch of magic? And will the Sailor Girl's older brother and Ellara be able to resist the siren call of mating, even if it means their dreams are dashed to pieces on the sand?

Cruel and Splendid Mermaids is an enchanting tale of friendship, romance, danger, twists, and mayhem. So grab your snorkel and dive into this enchanting adventure—you won't want to miss a single splash!
