Description de l’éditeur
A dark and powerful goddess hunts for three jewels: fallen stars that will give her endless power. To save the world, six friends have joined forces to stop her. Now, on the beautiful island of Capri, their battle continues...
Mermaid Annika is proud to have been chosen for such an important quest. But now that her identity has been revealed, her time is running out. She knows that soon she must return to her people. But she also knows that she is in love with Sawyer King - the brave and loyal adventurer with secrets of his own.
As Annika, Sawyer and their four friends hunt for the mysterious 'star of water', the goddess Nerezza sends a terrifying foe to destroy them. It seems there is no place for love and desire at such a dark time. And so Sawyer tries to protect Annika by pushing her away.
But true love cannot be denied. And in a battle between the dark and the light - it might be the only thing that can save them from a terrible fate.
A mermaid and a time and space traveler fall in love while searching for a magical object off the island of Capri and protecting it from the goddess of lies and her minions in the second Guardians fantasy romance (after Stars of Fortune). Mermaid Annika, nearly childlike about life on land, is not a typical Roberts heroine. Sawyer King is a Renaissance man with good reasons to be reluctant in pursuing his love for her; she, in turn, cannot make certain first moves because she's bound by the sirens' rules. But Annika is well advised on seduction by her fellow female Guardians, a seer and a werewolf and does what she can to convey her interest. The group's good-natured camaraderie is a definite plus, as is the sweetly romantic nature of the couple's possibly doomed courtship. Too bad Annika's na vet is overdone, and though Sawyer's a great hero, he occasionally comes across as a combination of other Roberts leading men.
