amazon-goodreads.jpgHired by a stranger to write his life story, Beth Lambert arrives at a seemingly abandoned house in the hills near her hometown. She knows the rumors, she knows it is dangerous and unwise. But she needs the money. And she needs to prove that it isn’t a mistake to think she can make a career out of a dream.
Inside the house of emptiness and coldness, she finds a man with curt words and haunted eyes. He is eccentric, odd. Brutish, even. He scares her, and he intrigues her. When she learns who he is, she wants to run. But there is the money, and there is the dream, and eventually, there is simply Harrison Caldwell. The haunted man with the black, ugly truth.

My Review:

*Disclaimer: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

Steady As The Snow Falls by Lindy Zart is a beautiful story about finding love and acceptance. Harrison has shut himself away from the world, but when he needs a writer, Beth accepts the job and comes to like the gruff man with a deadly secret. The characters are so real that there were a couple times I had to put the book down because I heard my ex in my head as I was reading something Ozzy said! The descriptions are vivid; I could feel the cold snow under my feet and feel the embrace of the darkness. Zart’s writing never fails to evoke emotion in me, and this story was no exception. Steady As The Snow Falls is as much about loving and accepting oneself as it is about finding love and acceptance from others, which made it all the more beautiful. The premise was one that I’ve never read before and it immediately had my interest. This is a book that I highly recommend reading—just be sure to have some tissues handy.

Blog Tour and Review: Sins Against The Sea by Nina Mason

Sins Against The Sea by Nina Mason

 

*Disclaimer: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

 

“If the merfolk were real, imagine how they might feel about the way we humans treat the ocean. That was my premise for Sins Against the Sea, a story deeply steeped in the mythology and folklore of the Scottish isles.”

–Nina Mason, author

 

Title: Sins Against the Sea

Author: Nina Mason

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Mythology

Heat Level: Moderately steamy

Format: Kindle and Paperback

 

 

Synopsis:

Cordelia Parker, an oil company spokeswoman, has never believed in magic, despite her late mother’s fanciful stories. Then, during an oil spill in Scotland’s mysterious Minch, her reality is shattered when she stumbles upon a merman in a hidden cave. Even more shocking, she feels the same soul-level connection to him she felt for the ocean before it claimed both her parents.

A fish out of water in his sexist culture, Cuan feels a powerful attraction to Cordelia, but, because she knows what he is, he is duty-bound to kill her. If humankind discovers the Blue Men of the Minch are real, they will destroy them the way they destroy the ocean, whose abundance belongs at once to all and none. Thus, the only way he can have a life with her is to prove she is more than she appears, trust her with his secrets, and give up his undersea world.

With so many obstacles to overcome, they will need a miracle to be together…or maybe just a splash of ancient island magic.

 

My Review:

Sins Against The Sea by Nina Mason is a fantastic blend of mythology, romance, and the importance of taking care of the planet. I’m a sucker for mythological creatures, and Mason does not disappoint with the Blue Men of the Minch (mermen). The mermen have a rich mythological history and are devoted to protecting the ocean, but they have their flaws too, which makes them characters I could identify with. Cuan is a sweet, sexy character that made me swoon despite the fact that he has a tail nine months of the year. Corey is orphaned by the sea and works for an oil company, yet manages to remain an environmentally conscious person with a big heart and a love for the sea. The romance between Corey and Cuan is passionate and steamy, a soulmate connection that fit beautifully into the magical setting of the story. I definitely recommend losing yourself in the love and magic of Sins Against The Sea.
