Rising

Contains a newly released scene! In a war between the humans and the inhabitants of the sea—humans will lose. Xanthus Dimitriou—the most lethal Dagonian to rise from the ocean—is on a mission to save mankind from annihilation. There’s just one thing standing in his way: the life of a beautiful young woman…

Descending

When Xanthus cashes in a long-standing favor, Kyros is faced with doing two things he thought he’d never do—protect a mermaid and live on land.


Avenging

Two thousand years ago, King Triton witnessed the slaughter and total annihilation of his merchildren. Devastated by the loss, he vowed to never again father a child. Powerful, handsome, and eternally youthful, Triton was no stranger to seduction—yet his resolve was unwavering…until he met Nicole.

Excerpt:

“I’m not a mermaid,” Sara shouted, turning on her side. Only then did she realize that maybe it would be best for them to think she was a mermaid. Maybe then, they’d think twice about killing her. Of course, they might still kill her, put her in a tank of formaldehyde, and sell her body to the highest bidder. The tabloids would have a field day with her.


“Yeah right. Girl… mermaid… whatever. You just shut up while I think,” Slink said. He seemed to be thinking very hard. His eyes narrowed, and a slow smile spread across his face.



“Ettie, get the van. We’re taking her with us. She has to be worth a fortune. We may have to keep her for a while. We’ll just need to find the right buyers. And I know a guy.”



A low growl snaked through the trees. It grew louder, driving chills down Sara’s spine, and causing the hair on her neck to stand on end.



“What… is… that?” Tane stepped back. Fear was thick in the air. Sara was terrified too, but this time it wasn’t the fear of these men that caused it. If a wild animal were loose around here, she was definitely the most helpless of the group. This was turning out to be a very bad night.



The three men stood unmoving, their eyes searching the foliage around them. Darkness blanketed everything, and out of that darkness, an ominous figure emerged. Sara recognized him at once and nearly fainted with relief. Her three kidnappers didn’t share her relief. In fact, after looking at Xanthus’s fury, they would rather have dealt with a lion than this hulking specter of death.
