About the Author

Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
The Ocean's Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by the Nightmares trilogy. She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn't leave her alone.

I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review.

I have been reading the other reviews of this book, and I am mystified by some of the comments made on this book. When I first started this book, I was very confused. I did not understand any of the events nor why this woman, Maria, was on a raft floating naked in the middle of the ocean. When William McGregor rescues her, she is confused and cannot understand their language. William and Charlie, a young boy on the ship, try to help her to adjust. Most of the other sailors felt it was bad luck to have a woman on board and wanted to get rid of her.

Very little happens in the first part of the book as William shows Marie around the ship, sleeps in her room to keep her safe and tries to learn more about her. It isn't until more than half-way through that the action starts. And it isn't until the end of the book that I realize who Maria really is. Up until this point, I was actually a little bored waiting for something to happen. I knew that the author was building up to something, but I didn't know what or where. Unfortunately, at the time I was not aware that this was the first part of a series. Thus, I was very disappointed when the book ended with a huge cliffhanger. The worst part: the book had JUST gotten interesting!

Cliffhanger stories have been discussed over and over again on the Amazon forum. Many readers, including me, complain about how authors write books with NO ending so that we will have to buy more of their books to finish the story. In this case, Ocean's Justice is just an introduction for a longer story. I would have appreciated it if the author had continued the story in the SAME book. Part 1 only has 172 pages. Part 2 has 158 pages, Part 3 has 149.

Yippee! Another mermaid story, Ocean’s Justice by Demelza Carlton.

A humorous and sexy introduction to Demelza’s new Ocean’s Justice series. Recommended for adults.

This novella only took me a couple of hours. I was curious, happy, sad and left wanting MORE.

I love a kickass female protagonist, no matter WHAT she is!

A woman on a ship of superstitious men cannot be good. But she has two men that will do whatever they can to see that she is okay and stays that way.

William McGregor pulled her from the sea. He quickly becomes her protector, her hero. Little does he know, she can take care of herself. He is a gentleman and proves that chivalry still exists.

Charlie, the embarrassed young man, whose clothes she wears, has a serious crush on her.

Allchin – what a great name for the cook. Hints at the humor in Demelza’s wonderful tale.

She is in a world where she knows nothing and cannot communicate. Where did she come from?

Her introduction to chocolate is a sensual one.

Her first taste of rum was a doozy.

Demelza Carlton has a way with words. Her descriptions are vivid and place me right in the middle of the action, like a fly on the wall.

I love her blend of savagery and humor. Even during the worst parts, I usually have a smile on my face. I hope that doesn’t tell my badness.

At the end of the novella, Demelza asks, “What is your favorite part of the story?” It’s hard to choose just one.

I smiled through so much, I will have to say, the part that put tears in my eyes. BUT, I cannot tell you that part. You will have to find out for yourself. If you love mermaids, Ocean’s Justice is a MUST READ.

I wanted to be able to say, “Tell me what hurts, you great big baby, so I know what to tend first.”

Set in the past, long before Ms. Carlton's "Ocean's Gift" series begins, "Ocean's Justice" marks the commencement of a mermaid's lifetime of tales.

A beautiful woman is saved by William McGregor after she is victimized by a shipwreck.

Maria is mild-mannered, skittish, and seeing as she has a secret to keep hidden, she doesn't say much. I suppose the fact that a mermaid infiltrating the Trevessa as human would definitely be keeping quiet, huh? With sailors and their superstitions that a woman on board brought them a cursed journey, if I were Maria, I'd be on guard too. Then again, since she's knew at this whole human bit, it becomes quite clear in the beginning of this story that she is unable to express herself properly in order to be understood by the members of the crew that she befriends.

Upset at losing her love, Giuseppe, Maria never expected that William would not only fight for her on multiple occasions, but that they'd develop feelings for one another.

In Ocean's Justice, Carlton manages to capture the reader with a very realistic cast that tugs at your heartstrings, keeps you riveted as you sit on the edge of your seat, and sets you to wonder what will happen next. If you think that you'll see a happy ending in this one, think again because as per her usual, Carlton manages to leave you hanging, although in a very satisfactory fashion. Let's just say that by the time you finish this book, you'll be glad the other one is available and you'll definitely be rushing to read the next one to see what happens next!
