How many times can you be hurt, before you stop being willing to love?
In this third title in the Mesuline’s Daughters mermaid trilogy, Nerine has lived most of her life on her own terms ñ even though it meant being isolated and not being with the man she loved. As a mermaid/lamia mix and wearer of the Stone of Love, her life is complicated in so many ways that she finds it best to handle everything herself. Especially when it comes to caring for the people who live on Azov, the island she helped create for others of mixed blood who were rejected by their communities.
And then, mortally injured, Fiero comes back into her life. The man who’s always had her heart.
Fiero, known to most as a Sea Dragon because of his mermaid/kelpie heritage, believed everyone he cared for had either abandoned or left him. After a misguided attempt to control the Stones of Power, the one person he thought he could trust committed the ultimate betrayal. Now Fiero is determine to heal so he can have his vengeance.
First, however, he has to figure out who the mysterious and beautiful woman caring for him is.
Although Nerine and Fiero share a connection that cannot be broken, they also have reasons to guard their feelings and not let others help them. But if a threat to the safety of the Oceans is to be conquered they will each have to risk everything ñ and work with those who fear them ñ or the future they want for themselves and others will be destroyed.
