What a surprise for a young woman, to find herself suddenly transformed into a mermaid.
Ciel’s first thought – track down the merman who changed her and make him reverse his magic. Unable to find him, survival in her new world becomes paramount. She eagerly accepts help from a dashing pirate captain who takes a fancy to her, lavishing her with finery.
When her merman does show up, he competes for her affection. One look into his eyes makes her life more complex — he is her soul mate.
Which man will she choose – pirate captain or merman? Which life – human or mermaid? Caribbean adventures and dangers chase Ciel as she searches for decisions and the key to her happiness.
Warning: This book contains Haitian vodou, sultry wenches, foul-mouthed scalliwag pirates, overindulgence of fine Caribbean rum, and amorous encounters on deserted beaches.
- What was your first impression of your cover when it arrived in the email? Did you pet the screen for a while? Or did you rush to frame it?
I immediately loved the layers of images. The young woman’s face in the foreground shows concern, the mercouple’s tight embrace behind her shows the strength of their bond, and the background is covered with voodoo and dark magic symbols overtop of a shoreline. So much in one space!
2. What does your book cover say about your book? What special feature does it point to that tells the reader to snatch this up right away to read?
It tells the reader there is both fantasy and romance. I think the intensity of the woman’s face and the mercouple’s clinch shows urgency to solve a problem…which definitely gives a clue to the excitement and pacing of the story.
3. So tell me a little about your cover artist? Do you know if he or she has a webpage? If so, do you have the link?
My cover artist from MuseItUp Publishing is Delilah K. Stephans. I write erotic romance and really appreciate how she takes time to include the genre other than erotica, in my case fantasy or paranormal. The resulting covers are far more tasteful and artistic than those simply showcasing naked body parts. Her webpage is http://www.delilahkstephans.com
4. What feedback have you gotten back from readers?
Readers have commented on liking the edginess of emotion they sense between the mercouple, combined with the concern on the heroine’s face. They also like the soothing, tropical colors.
