Love is enchantment without magic...

A mermaid’s instinct...Nissa of the Mer Clan is driven by her instincts to conceive a child, but her undersea cluster does not include males. She must transform into a human-like siren long enough to enchant a mate with her song. Then she can return to the sea. If she fails, she’ll die.

A playboy's desire...Peter McFey, hunky surf bum turned treasure hunter, has never turned down a sexy woman, but the sapphire-eyed siren wants to make him her pet.

In the sensual battle between a mermaid’s instinct and a playboy’s desire, there is no winner. When the siren sings, her mate can hear nothing else.

Enchantment will save her life but leave him...insane.

A beautiful singing voice is known to have many powers over a person. They can easily be enchanted by the haunting, alluring song. Especially the song of a siren. Oh yes, being serenaded by a siren could have long term affects on the mind. But there's a person who is immune to one siren's voice...and she is determined to enchant him. She must!

Nissa only knows the way of her people. And when she and her sisters begin their singing, she is horrifed when one man doesn't fall under her spell. Not that he doesn't want her, because he sure does. But somehow, he can control it, which completely baffles Nissa. What a riot Nissa is! She is so naïve to the ways of the human, and what a wild fun ride it was to read about her helping Peter and learning the ways of the human world. The author does a fantastic job with this paranormal/fantasy, showing the reader how two beings from completely different worlds collide and become one.

Curiosity of why Peter is immune to Nissa's siren charm kept me turning the pages, desperate for answers. When Nissa joins Peter on a treasure hunt, she is lost and afraid, being away from her home world in the waters and learning to do things the human way. She's not used to sleeping in a bed, where fears she will suffocate is one of the things she must overcome. And every chance she gets, she tries to win Peter over, but each time, he gets angrier and more defiant.

With the action and suspense heightened, this book really has the elements of an amazing cross-genre story. Be aware that Siren's Serenade is Book two in the McFey Treasures series. I have yet to read the first one, but after how enjoyable this story was, I will be on the hunt for the other book. Nissa and Peter were hot, hot, hot together!

If you enjoy adventure, sizzling sexual tension, paranormal beings, and a love story that has a shot of being hotter than fireworks, then take a chance, and let this story enchant you with it's song.
