Book Description

Award-winning author Kimberly Llewellyn introduces a sexy new series with a tale of a woman discovering her special aquatic gift and an unsuspecting man whose life is on the line. Two souls whose dangerous attraction could seal the fate of mankind.

Finally...the reason behind the man shortage.

A beautiful soul with a seductive power...

When Serina James, a popular swimwear designer, discovers ruthless mermaids stealing the eligible men in her seaside town, she learns of her own ancient aquatic ties to the sirens. And it’s no coincidence that the sudden carnal changes in her body coincide with the ocean tides. The sea awakens her desire, as does the hunky new man invading her life—the skeptical police detective, Alex Waters.

A jaded cop destined to be the one...

Detective Alex Waters considers Serina the prime suspect in her ex-boyfriend's disappearance. He should take her into custody, but he'd rather take her into his arms. He fights the passion she stirs deep inside him, keeping it on lockdown. Luckily, he has the moral firewall to resist such temptation. But a man can fight the siren's call for just so long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Siren Call October 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Review: I absolutely loved this book. Serina James is such a great heroine. She is fun, strong, and knows what she wants. She wants detective Alex Waters from the first moment he walks into her swimsuit shop. With the help of Binbin and Miko, Serina soon discovers that mermaids are real and that it is her destiny to be the mermaid catcher. Narelle, mermaid and soon to be Sea Queen, needs a Sea King. Alex Waters will make the perfect Sea King. The chemistry between these characters is amazing. This is my first mermaid tale and it was fabulous. A must read if you really like paranormal romance. Kimberly Llewellyn tells an amazing tale. Cannot wait to see what she does next.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so great December 24, 2011
By North
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Serena has been seeing things in the water all her life. Once, long ago, she saw her father kissing a lady just before he mysteriously left town forever.

As a new-business woman, Serena is moaning the lack of good male prospects. Her last boyfriend turned out to be a criminal who stole ten-thousand dollars from her. Things get worse when said ex disappear on a boating trip and Serena's cap stained with Larry-the-ex's blood is found on the boat. Enter Detective Alex.

We soon find out that mermaids are real and that they are the cause of the lack of men. Not the nice kind of mermaids, but ruthless monsters, ready to kill for their ends, charming men to their deaths. Serena, as the mermaid catcher, in the only thing that will save the town from this menace, if only she can keep herself out of jail long enough.

The plot could have been fine but the end product falls really short of expectations. None of the characters ring true. Alex, for sure, deserves to be kicked-out of any respectable police force. I found the animalistic nature of Serena's lust off-putting. The training part of a mermaid-catcher was way too short and unbelievable. And who ever heard of death by breeding ? How does it even work ? Now, that would have been an interesting idea to develop ! But no, we get almost nothing on the nature of mermaids, their lives, their habitat and their reproducing (I've always wondered : it seems to me their fish-tail would be in the way...).

Part of this book wants to be a fantasy novel, but most of it is a sappy romance novel (only they seem to fall in lust more than fall in love). Both parts fight for supremacy and do not work well together. I would suggest to the author that she rewrites the novel, flesh out the mermaids and seriously rethink the pace of Serena's and Alex's relationship. I would also edit the fish sentences at the beginning of each chapter. Some will find them funny, I found them corny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun quick read. January 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After many years and three kids later I'm finally reading again. And this is the first book I chose to read. The pretty cover attracted me. It was easy to get into. Helped wake up my imagination. It took me a weekend to read. I give it 4 stars because I wish it had more meat to it, it left me hungry for more.

This was a good story. I am not into reading mermaid stories. With that being said this book was much better than I had anticipated. This was my first read by this author. I will try some of her other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for the Next Book! February 3, 2012
Format:Paperback
This book had all the tragic romance of Kimberly Llewellyn's other novels, but with a kick. More on the line of the Twilight series, a supernatural situation was threatening the happiness of the main characters. I didn't want to put it down. Now I can't wait for the next book in the Mermaid Catcher series!

2.0 out of 5 stars So dull... January 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had such a hard time trying to read through this. I don't understand the other reviews at all.
The lead lady is so incredibly boring. The romantic interest is so incredibly boring. Even the mermaids are really boring. The 'action' and 'drama' were so watered out, I just couldn't finish it. I read majority of it and didn't have much left to finish it, but I actually gave up on it. I don't give up on books...ever. I'll even finish bad books because at least I'm gawking at how bad something is. But this one was just so bland; it wasn't outright horrible, but it held zero entertainment value for me.
The editing was good (thus my 2 stars), so it didn't seem like I was reading illiterate drivel. The dialogue is lacking emotion. The relationships are cheap. The first intimate scene between the love interest and the girl is just weird. The glimpse into the mermaid life via dream-surfing (or whatever it was) was kind of interesting, but that was the only chapter that held some of my interest.
So if you like heroines that are inept, emotionally unstable, yet remain boring in a barely-there romantic interest and goal to save the town from slutty mermaids...congratulations! You found your treasure.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Im having a hard time getting through this story. The premise is good but there are pages and pages of unnecessary repetitive text. I wanted this to be more about mermaids. Ive read 70% and dont think I will finish it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but... December 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a fun, quick read, with a great plot, but the execution was lacking. The main characters are fun but somewhat flat and didn't really draw me into the story. The supporting characters are very one-dimensional and I felt disappointed that the author didn't take more time to make all the characters into more believable people. I can't recommend it, but reading it wasn't a waste of my time either.

1.0 out of 5 stars CSI not fantasy
Not what I was expecting. If I wanted CSI I would have turned on the TV. I saw a mermaid, expected a fantasy. Should have read the blurb and the reviews.
