This was a short story from an anthology called Secret Volume 27 given to me for review by Debra from

I'm reviewing this because I might not finish the book, but if I do I might add the stories to this post!

Lieutenant Byron Burke lost his family to a merciless killer that slaughtered them one night when he was not home three years ago. He caught sight of the killer but couldn't catch him.. The killer with black eyes, soulless like a shark's!
When one day he goes surfing and gets caught in a storm Serenia rescues him. Serenia is a mermaid on a mission but when she saw Byron in trouble she had to make a detour to save his life.
When he wakes and finds a beauty checking him out he thinks he is in a dream!
Then trouble finds them and it's a fight for their lives as well as their love.

I liked the story although I'm not into mermaids.. all I know of mermaid land is The Little Mermaid and Splash :)

Quotes I enjoyed from this book :

Relief sluiced over him, the muscles in his shoulders unknotting. Perhaps he would not need to engage the land-walker after all.

The hormones that rendered a mermaid’s body supple enough to enjoy painless birthing also gentled the way for her to shift comfortably between her two forms unless she became landlocked by her breeding moon. Mermen, on the other hand, enjoyed no such advantages.

“Rennie,” he began, dragging a hand through his mussed hair. “I came out here a lost man, chasing the past.
Swallowing audibly, he turned away and rattled out a sigh. When his gaze captured hers again, she saw that his eyes shone with wetness. “Instead of the past, I found my future,” he rasped, catching a stray tendril of hair between his fingers and tucking it behind her ear. “you have saved me in ways I didn’t know I needed to be saved.”

“Forgive me,” he said, pressing his lips to the crown of her head. “you don’t have to say it. Not now. Not ever. you’re free…”

“I understand now. And I swear to you, when you open your eyes, the sun will be shining and you will be free to love anyone your heart desires.”

Those eyes, so black. Soulless. Like a shark’s.
