When Coast Guard rescue swimmer Kaleb Theldon sees what he's sure is a mermaid pulling his partner into the murky depths of the Bering Sea, his superiors call it PTSD. In order to save his career, Kaleb agrees to a week at an island spa off the coast of Maine. But the spa is nothing like he expected, and he isn't prepared for the sexy Siren that crosses his path. But will her passion be more than one mere human can take?
Serena has a problem, and after four previous visits to the Wiccan Haus, she'd expected things to get easier. But on the mermaid’s fifth visit, Kaleb walks in, and everything in her life becomes complicated. Never has she wanted to mate with a human man before. But can she keep her true self secret while she loves a man who has a chip on his shoulder a league long when it comes to mermaids?
And will loving him prove deadly?
This time, the staff has more than healing on their agenda. The siblings, Myron, and Rekkus must prove to these two lovers that things aren't always how they appear on the surface. Or Kaleb's demise might be found in his Siren's Serenade.
Welcome back to the Wiccan Haus.
They had come to the cliffs over the ocean. The moonlight lit a runway across the rippling waters below. He couldn’t face her, didn’t want to see her laugh—or worse, agree he was crazy. “I tried rescuing a friend from the waters off the coast of Alaska. That area isn’t kind on the best of days, and this was a Poseidon-releasing-his-wrath kind of day. A fishing vessel made a distress call. The ship had taken on water, and they had abandoned ship as it sank. I had already been in the water, getting a few men out of a raft. But we had a man in a survival suit still in the water. He’d been out there for an hour and didn’t have much time, so my buddy Jim jumped in to help. I don’t know what happened. He gave the thumbs up, and the mechanic brought up the rigging. But Jim wasn’t with it. We lowered the wire to bring Jim up. Just then, a huge wave lifted the water within feet of the helo Jim reached out to grab hold, and a woman swam up beside him…and then he slipped under the water, staring up at me for a second before I lost him completely.”
Serena laughed. “That’s ridiculous.”
Kaleb gritted his teeth so hard he might’ve crack one.
“Mermaids don’t live in Alaska. It’s too cold.”
“Excuse me?” His breath escaped on a gasp.
“Why would any mermaid want to live in those waters? It’s cold enough here.”
Kaleb shook his head to clear it and turned to look at her. No one in all the times he’d told the story had reacted like she had. “Let me get this straight. You aren’t arguing with me that mermaids exist…only that they don’t live in the Bering Sea?”
“Well, I suppose they could live there, but I can’t imagine wanting to. I mean there—” She stopped, her mouth forming an O.
“You were saying?”
“Nothing.” She fiddled with her skirt. “I don’t think you’re any crazier than anyone else here on the island.”
He laughed. “You’re not very reassuring.”
