Beth is depressed. Her people are safe in Grizzly Cove, but she feels as if she’s losing all her friends as they pair off two-by-two with their bear shifter mates. She’s only just found freedom by running away from her oppressive home. It’s not fair that she’s losing her new family too.
Trevor rappelled into town from a black helicopter, but he’s found welcome here and a new mission to spark his interest. Almost as much as the pretty mermaid he finds sobbing on a boulder near the water’s edge. He can’t just leave her there, but he soon learns that Beth is as prickly as the trident she carries as a huntress for her people.
She’s a warrior in the ocean, but on land, she’s the hunted, and Trevor finds that totally unacceptable. When bounty hunters come to collect the huge price on her head, it’ll be up to Trevor to stop them…and help Beth find her courage, both to face off with her evil stepfather, and accept Trevor as her true mate.
It’s all out war in Grizzly Cove, but which side will win?

Plot holes and character flaws
I found Beth to be a particularly unlikeable character, and her personality didn’t have a redemption arc so much as an about-face. Trevor was just okay, but I just couldn’t handle how many allowances he made for Beth’s behavior (whether she was acting like a b**** or a helpless baby). Significant plot holes with respect to wards around town, and the attempt to resolve them seemed really weak. I felt like the establishment of some of the characters was necessary for future books in the series, but that the protagonists and their actual romance were a throw-away.
