In Compulsion, we travel to the underwater world where it all began, where Miranda and Marko found their love. We see how history began for the mermaids.
Dive in deep to where it all began… a Submerged Sun Series prequel.
Nada is seventeen and hungry for adventure when handsome, blue eyed stranger Frano Tollin arrives on the shores of the Adriatic island paradise Nada calls home.
After a short courtship he whisks her away to a glittering underwater city, promising Nada a lifetime of adventure, excitement and most important of all, love.
At first, Nada feels as though she is living a dream, but when Frano's hunger for power takes a dark, obsessive turn, Nada begins to seek comfort in the arms of the one boy he forbids her to know, his mute younger brother, Lukas.
Will Nada return to her husband’s side, in hopes to break him free from his dark obsessions, or will she choose the forbidden Lukas, in hopes of finding the love she so desperately seeks…
Don’t be frightened,’ he said, his deep voice softening. ‘I always wear this knife. For safety. While I’m exploring.’
‘Yes.’ His full lips curved into a smile. A sexy smile. I had to look away. None of the boys from the village, and certainly not that big brute Jani, had ever made my stomach flutter like this.
‘Exploring the sea?’
He raised his brows.
‘What if I told you that my exploring days were over? That I have found what I’ve been looking for?’
My face flushed with heat when I met his intense gaze. Oh yes, he looked a lot like my favourite movie star. Better.
‘What exactly have you found?’ I asked rather boldly.
‘A living mermaid.’
I laughed. ‘My father believed in mermaids.’
Frano’s face became serious. ‘Of course he did, for he has a mermaid for a daughter.’
My face burned with heat.
‘Follow me. My mother will assist with finding you a place to stay. Somebody can give you a lift into town.’
‘Is your mother a beautiful mermaid also?’
I laughed, picturing my mother’s angry face when she saw that I had brought unannounced company with me.
‘Wait and see for yourself.’
‘I have money. Accounts with banks all over the world,’ he said.
‘I can tell by your lack of shirt.’
He laughed, deep and rich. The sound went straight to my heart like an arrow from Cupid. ‘You’ll see.’
I glanced over my shoulder and met his twinkling gaze. ‘I’ll see what?’
‘After we’re married, you’ll see what I’m made of.’
I stopped to lean against a stone wall and laugh.
‘We’re getting married, now? I don’t even know you. I’m only seventeen!’
