That disclaimer out of the way…
This was a beautiful, sweet, sexy, sparkling fairy-tale.
It was really just feast for your visual mind. Piper Vaughn’s painted a tale as captivating as Anne Cain’s cover, which is saying something.
Thoroughly enjoyed every single second.
Piper Vaughn, I want a series! One with a merman of every color of the rainbow, or more. You’ve done red. There’s more to do. Now, hop to it!
He's settled into his small cabin near the ocean, works hard cooking at local inn, has a few friends (an even fewer number of casual lovers), and knows that he should be satisfied with his life. Before arriving at the island his life was full of poverty, hardship and pain. He can't help but dream of "If only...." You see, his bed is awfully lonely at night, and his heart longs for a love to call his own.
So time passes, until one day a most unexpected thing occurs. He finds a merman, unconscious, on the beach and rescues him. Taking care of his guest until the next moonlight night when he releases him back into the ocean. They didn't speak each other's language, could barely communicate at all, but somehow Francis' heart still longed for Wick long after he had returned to the sea.
That's how the man without any secrets finds himself keeping the biggest one of all! He knew it was foolish to hope for more, because everyone knows that loving a mythical creature will only end up breaking your heart. Wick seemed to be different, at least that's what Francis thought at first, but nothing is ever exactly as it seems.
A very short but well written story; Love Rising tells a magical "tail" of a human and a merman who fall in love. How do you solve the problem of a human who can't live under water and a merman who can't live on land? This romantic fairy tale has more than one surprise in store for its readers to enjoy!
A copy of Love Rising was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Isla Sagrario is the perfect society where there is no judgement, no crime. In today’s environment where LGBT rights are constantly a source of debate, the author gives us a glimpse of what could be if we were all so understanding and accepting as the people on Isla Sagrario.
The relationship between Francis and Wick shows us that love can conquer all, if we work at it. If two people want to be together badly enough, they will find a way. Wick says it perfectly when he told Francis “For you, I change.” Wick is the ideal partner. He made the decision to change, not because he was asked, but because he saw the value of a relationship with Francis. In a world where divorce is prevalent, the author shows us what could be if we put forth the effort.
I liked this short read. It was pure fantasy and completely unrealistic, but I believe that was the point. It was well written and, even if the author didn’t mean it, it made a statement. Love is everything. If everyone put love first, then maybe Isla Sangrario could be a reality.
