Blurb: Shot at by drug dealers and left to drown, marine biologist Heidi is rescued by the hottest boat bum she’s ever seen. Tall, dark and handsome, Jake is every girl’s dream. But with her best friend missing or dead and the bad guys still after her, the last thing she has time for is romance.
As a merman, exiled from his colony and under a curse on when to shapeshift, Jake can’t afford to be around humans, especially a marine biologist who might discover his species. But he can’t throw Heidi to the wolves of the drug dealers and possibly corrupt law enforcement. He’ll fight drug lords, pirates and even the gods to protect her. More complications arise when Jake’s family shows up looking for help, but the biggest problem of all is whether Jake and Heidi can resist the massive attraction that grows between them.
What was he going to do with her? He’d planned to drop her at the nearest ER, notify the Coast Guard, and get the hell out of her life. She was pretty banged up, could have any number of internal injuries that he didn’t know about, definitely had a minor concussion. But she’d seemed pretty determined about avoiding the hospital. He told himself it wasn’t any of his business. She was a big girl, and once they docked she’d no longer be Jake’s concern.
Wanting to be sure she was steady enough to walk on her own, he stayed with his ear pressed to the wooden cabin door until he heard her footsteps pass and the door to the head click shut. Fine then. She was up and mobile. It was up to her if she wanted medical attention.
He thought about her sitting there in his bed, mostly naked, and a totally inappropriate bolt of lust shot all the way through him. He wasn’t going to do anything about it of course. She was too vulnerable right now and he wasn’t that big an asshole. But, damn, she was magnificent with her Viking build, and when she’d been thinking, a tiny crease had formed between her white-blonde eyebrows, making him want to smooth the wrinkle out with his thumb—or his lips.
Hell! For all he knew, the man who’d died last night had been her lover—or husband. Even though she’d stayed calm, he’d seen the shock and grief behind her tear-filled blue eyes. Which is why he should turn her over to the cops, get back on his boat, and forget he’d ever met her. Another place, another time, he might have had a good time with her, but the present combination sucked out loud.
“Right, then,” he muttered to himself, climbing the narrow stairs. He’d take her to the cops, give his own statement, then he’d be out of it. He’d refuel the boat, stock up on groceries and head back to sea. He hadn’t been to Hawaii in a while, or Tahiti. Maybe if he found himself a dark-skinned beauty to play with, he’d be able to forget about long blonde hair, haunted blue eyes and the body of a Norse goddess. Maybe.
Cindy Spencer Pape firmly believes in happily-ever-after and brings that to her writing. Award-winning author of 19 novels and more than 30 shorter works, Cindy lives in southeast Michigan with her husband, two sons, granddaughter, and a houseful of pets. When not hard at work writing she can be found dressing up for steampunk parties and Renaissance fairs, or with her nose buried in a book.
