This immortal might be out of his depth…

After two centuries as an immortal pirate, Duke Proctor figures he’s experienced pretty much everything. Which is exactly when he finds himself held at gunpoint…by a mermaid. But the exquisitely lush blonde—whose eyes are deeper than the sea—is here for a reason. Someone has stolen from her and she’s certain Duke is behind it.

Annika Mare knows for a fact that the Sea Dog’s crew has her comb. In the wrong hands, it places Annika under the control of whoever wields it. But the comb has been taken—and working with this unbelievably sexy human pirate to recover it poses an entirely different kind of threat.

Now these two immortals must find the thief, and fast. But there are other forces at work, bigger than Duke or Annika could possibly know. And a powerful artifact in the hands of evil isn’t nearly as dangerous as the sizzlingly-hot attraction that could engulf them both…


I’ve never read a book involving mermaids before. So I was really excited to dive into this story. I was a little nervous about jumping in on the seventh book of a series. However, I never felt lost or confused. The author did a really good job on catching the reader up, without it feeling like an information dump.

This story has a lot going on. Between Annika showing up, demanding her comb, to an old enemy popping up, and more twists and turns than I thought one book could hold. Let’s just say there was never really a dull moment. I never quite knew when the other shoe would fall and more chaos would ensue. It seemed like just about everything that could go wrong for this group of immortals, went wrong… and some.

I think my favorite thing about the story was, of course, Annika. I’ve just never read a story with a mermaid before and I was fascinated to see how the author developed her. Let’s just say, I was not disappointed. I loved the back story that Annika had of being the protector for her people. She’s a warrior and knows how to handle herself. So, needless to say, she was no meek bystander in this story.

Between the immortal pirates, mermaids, secret government sections, and just all the unknown out there in this story, I was an easy read to fall into. I enjoyed the authors take on mermaids and found all the supernatural unknown aspects very interesting.
