Duty or love? Will a guard make the right choice?
Becky needs a scoop to make her mark in the journalism world and gets her chance when she’s hired as a nurse for a top-secret clinic hidden in the Rockies. What she doesn’t expect is to become one of the patients and kept prisoner.
The doctors are playing God and have found a way to change people. Change them into something else. In her case, she becomes a mermaid. The only one of her kind and about to be sold to the highest bidder unless she can convince the man guarding her to set her free.
Jett ain’t no hero, yet, he finds himself rescuing Becky, over and over. Even starts liking the talkative nurse, which is a bad idea. He knows better than to get involved with a woman. Didn’t his daddy teach him love always hurts? It hurts, alright, especially because he ends up having to make a choice; doing his job or protecting Becky.
Is it even possible for a man to love a mermaid? Might be time to take some scuba diving lessons to find out.

The Guard and the Mermaid
I’m in love with the Chimera Secrets series from Eve Langlais. I love reading romance, rooting for two people to be together and find their happily ever after. I also love creepy horror monsters. She blends both of these things together so perfectly in this series!
In this second installment, we focus on Becky Frederickson, whom we met in the first book. We saw her get surly and rude to her friend Meredith, and in this book we find out why. Becky has a lot going on, and even more after one of her coma patients wakes up and attacks her. Luckily, the mercenary guard, Jett, always seems to be there when she needs saving, and the two of them form an unlikely bond, that sees them through Becky’s transformation into a mermaid! I love the resolution to this book, and can’t wait to see where Langlais takes us in the next one!
