Zara’s fate had been decided thousands of years before her birth. She
is now fighting against time and family to reclaim the decisions that
will ultimately shape her destiny.
Sentenced to live an existence in the Underworld, mated to a man she
despises, Zara must find a way to overcome the Gods and their curses,
with love as her only guide.
Can James, a handsome and rugged sailor, help Zara break the bonds of
magical spells or will she end up mated to Xander, the Son of Satan?
Take a dive Under the Moonlight to see where love can take you.
Zara couldn’t help staring at the vessels that passed by her cove.
Each one contained a different story and a different set of sailors. Her
father had warned her that interacting with the humans, or even simply
studying them, was an addiction, one she would soon have to learn to
overcome. Each mermaid was presented with the same challenge on their
twenty-second birthday. They each had to make a choice to stay in the
waters and live with their families, or to give up everything they had
always known, for love, and join the human race.
For thousands of years, the merpeople had joined the two-legged
humans’ culture, going undetected. And it wasn’t as if mermaids could
never go into the waters again afterwards. Each full moon they had the
opportunity to dive into the salty water of the ocean and join their
fellow merpeople under the moonlight. However, each full moon that
passed made that transition harder and harder for the mermaid to
accomplish. The longer they were out of the ocean and away from their
mer-form, the harder it was on their body to shift back to their
She knew that her decision was about to be due. She hadn’t told
anyone what she was thinking about choosing; she didn’t want the added
pressure from King Triton, her father, and his brother, Poseidon, her
uncle. Humans always got the lineage wrong in their stories. So many of
the gods were intertwined that they all ended up being related to one
another in some way or another, but the rules for joining the human race
were strict. A merperson could only marry once, and it could only be
for love. Any other reason wouldn’t be approved. You had to have King
Triton’s blessing in order to make the final conversion into the human
“What are you looking at, Zara?”
Her head whipped around to the side to look at Sadie, her mother, who
was swimming in the lagoon. “That ship out there. It comes by here
every day around this time, like they are just waiting.”
“They are predators. Always remember that.” Her mother’s tone was adamant.
“You only say that because you don’t know them yet. Everyone is a shark to you,” Zara retorted.
“Men are men, Zara. They will kill to get what they want.”
“Is that what you tell Daddy?” Zara valued her mother and knew that
she would always be there to support her, but she worried that her
mother was constantly trying to sway her against all human men and make
her change her mind about the choices she had spinning around in her
“Your father is different. Gods know how to treat their women,” she said flatly.
“No, they don’t, Mother. You are just blinded by love.” She watched
the curve of her mother’s lips come up and form a smile. It was the
truth. Her mother and father were very much in love, even after all
these years and hundreds of children. Humans talked about having large
families with nine or ten siblings. They should try having two hundred
and fifty nine sisters and twice as many brothers.
“And what a blindness to have. You should be so lucky, young lady.”
“One day, Mother, maybe I will be.”
