Book Description

When a car accident takes Leah Sunderland’s life, she finds herself in dire need of divine assistance. Her fairy godmother comes to the rescue, but her help comes with conditions. As a fairy godmother, the only assistance she can offer deals with (you guessed it) fairy tales. To win a second chance at life, Leah must play out the tale of The Little Mermaid.

Armed with a mermaid tail and nothing else (not even a voice), she has one month to make a nobleman fall in love with her, or else she’ll die permanently. But the nobleman she must seduce is a hard, fierce warlord who thinks she’s a spy and the mistress of his enemy.

Can she win him over before the thirty days are up? Or is she in danger of losing her heart as well as her life?

I have always HATED the fact that the Little Mermaid turned into sea foam at the end. This is a brand new twist on a classic. I really enjoyed that the heroin starts out in Seattle (my hometown) so there is some time travel in this and there is a sassy fairy godmother helping her out. I think if you love classic fairy tales this one will pull at your heart strings and make you laugh all in one book. Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute! October 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this was a really cute story, witty and well-written. It was a hip and fresh take on The Little Mermaid. Our heroine has a month to get a man to fall in love with her, or she'll turn into sea foam. I thought the fairy godmother was funny, and the romance was a nice touch. It was kind of silly (as some reviewers mentioned) but I think that was the point! It's definitely a fun little farce.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thought it was the author's first book... September 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No, really, right after I finished it, I looked it up and was surprised to find that she has other books.
And with that inauspicious beginning, I think you can see where this review is going.

** There may be spoilers after this point! **

I love mermaid tales, and am always looking for a different spin to it. The premise of a fairy god mother giving her charge another chance at life by making her, a modern day woman, live in a fairy tale, in 15th century England no less, tickled my fancy. Looking at the only comment, which was quite positive, I figured I would be in a for an awesome ride.

Nope, negative. I was super disappointed to find a heroine who CRIED her way through the book. For someone whose limbs transformed into a tail when wet, you'd think the heroine would be a little more careful about how much tears spilled on herself. Kidding aside, she was terribly one dimensional.

The hero failed to deliver as well. He was even more one dimensional than the heroine. Not to mention that he was apparently unable to form any sort of dialogue without repeating her name. (Major pet peeve here, btw.)

Story development felt a bit ham fisted. It was like paint by numbers but in literature form; nothing there was a surprise in the end.

So in conclusion, please save your 99 cents. Like the other commenter, I finished the book in one sitting, but that was due to a lot of skimming.

3.0 out of 5 stars It needed to be shorter November 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the 5 th once upon a time travel story I've read by this author. This one is the longest of them all too and probably my least favorite. The heroine was a complainer and a cryer and had no backbone. The hero, on the other hand was gentle and although he shouldn't be even trusting. My heart melted at the way he defended her from Matilda. Some of Leah's actions as well had me frustrated and how convenient that that everyone else didn't think to give her something to write with in order to communicate. And how convenient that he seems to understand her gestures yet doesn't when she later bravely tries to warn him! His reaction near the end was expected but of course Leah as usual goes to crying and giving up. One of the few saving graces is Muffin who always has me laughing whenever she pops up. Overall it was an okay read but I was disappointed more than anything since thus far I've really been enjoying the series. Maybe things could have been cut out to make this a shorter and more enjoyable read like the last ones I've read. Still will look out for anymore once upon a time travel stories, I'm addicted to Muffin! Lol

So glad I discovered Jill Myles's books. I can't quit reading them. They're all amazing, but the time travel books are my favorites. Loved Leah and Royce and hope they have millions of mermaid babies!

More About the Author

Jill Myles is a pen name for New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Jessica Clare. As Jessica Clare, she writes erotic contemporary romance. As Jessica Sims, she writes fun, sexy shifter paranormals. She also has a third pen name, because three is more fun than two.

As Jill Myles, she writes a little bit of everything, from sexy, comedic urban fantasy to fairy tales gone wrong. Basically, the Jill Myles books are a melting pot of silliness, sexiness, and fun. Which is awesome.

Jill/Jessica (Jillessica!) lives in a teeny tiny town in North Texas that has no Starbucks, which is a cruel and unusual punishment. She spends her time with her husband, pets, and Keurig. Because, coffee = love.
