No one knows whatâ€™s happening to her, and sheâ€™d like to keep her evolution from
human to mermaid a secret, but the truth is getting harder and harder to hide.
From her adoptive family, from her friends, and especially from theÂ irresistible James Phelps.
Her time in the ocean is spent dodging a possessive merman, while her time onÂ land is split between caring for her special-needs brother and squeezing inÂ every last possible moment of human life. She soon realizes falling for JamesÂ is unavoidable when he constantly comes to Emmaâ€™s rescue and somehow manages toÂ see through her carefully constructed icy facade to the vulnerability she lives
with every day. Everything about James makes Emma yearn for a life on land sheÂ just can’t have.
When Emmaâ€™s brother disappears on her watch, James is the only person she
trusts to help her save him. But even if they can save her brother, nothing can
prevent her return to the sea. Whether she likes it or not, Emma is
changingâ€”unable to breathe without yielding to the tideâ€”and it’s only a matter
of time before she’s forced to surrender forever.
She ran her fingers over the card as Peters strode from the house, closing the
door behind him. Outside, the cops got in their cars, turned off the flashing
lights, and one by one, drove away.
