Maryna Duile has challenged her sisters to a find-the-mortal contest. She places an ad in the local paper, but when there are no immediate replies she heads for Olympus and an afternoon with her close friend Eros.
River Braddock is a marine mammal biologist and he’s just discovered a new species of dolphin. What he doesn’t know is that this is no ordinary dolphin, but Triton, chaperone to Maryna during her stay on earth.
Maryna’s first meeting with River is anything but stellar, but the more she thinks of him, the more she needs him and the more she blunders her spells. Once she gets into the flow will she win his heart or be all washed up?
If you enjoy classic television from the likes of Bewitched, then this is the tale for you.
With all the dark paranormal romantic fiction out there today, I found this lighthearted and sweetly written book refreshing. This isn’t the dark side of witches, warlocks and werewolves, but instead the fun part with talking dolphins, disappearing clothing and a whole lot of good entertainment. Ms. Covey created a world of witches who wander into the mortal realm for some fun or maybe lunch. This is where we meet Maryna and her sisters. Heads up: look for more stories from this author in her Elementals series. I look forward to them.
Maryna finds herself in a slump and sets up this contest between her sisters and then heads off to find herself a mortal. Enter good looking ‘ist’ as Maryna calls him—otherwise known as a scientist named River. What could be more perfect for a water witch than a marine biologist?? They have a perfect blend of dislike and attraction at first meeting which just keeps you turning the pages and asking for more to see if it will transform into passion.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was a complete delight and just perfect for these late summer afternoons.
