Title: S’mores Siren Song
Author: Virginia Barlow
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Adysson Townsend spends her nights as a siren and days as a human. She owns an ice cream parlor along the waterfront and challenges a big fishing company over their illegal activities. But she’s almost out of time. On her twenty-fifth birthday, she must decide which form she’ll keep. It’s simple until a handsome officer comes to town and steals her heart.
Commander Benjamin Yeates volunteers for the job in Maine. Ever since he spotted a mermaid as a youth, he’s been curious about Mystic Cove. Now a marine biologist, he jumps at the chance to find out if they’re real. He falls hard and fast for Addy before he discovers there’s more to her than meets the eye, depending on the time of day….
Making a beeline for the chest holding her terry robe before any more prying eyes spied her, she stepped from the water, retrieved the garment, slipped her arms through the sleeves, and cinched the belt.
Relieved, she turned and walked right into a human wall adorned with black wavy hair and sultry blue eyes. “Oh! I…uh…didn’t see you there.” Her voice quivered with tension. Damn! Damn! Damn!
“I would say it’s pretty obvious.” His dark gaze roamed over her too hot face to her bare toes and back up. “Nice, uh, robe you’ve got there.”
He glanced up and down the beach. His gaze fell to the waterproof bin at their feet. “I didn’t realize Mystic Cove had a nudist beach.”
Her gaze shot up to his. “We don’t. This beach belongs to me. See the No Trespassing sign?” She pointed at a sign next to them and waited for his reaction.
He stood a head taller and wore a navy shirt open at the neck and navy trousers. A grin crossed his face. “What’s the penalty for skinny dipping here?” His amused expression did a once over her body before gazing into her eyes.
Heat flamed her face. “A thousand bucks and up to six months jail time. Do you plan to turn me in?”
His gaze darkened and dropped to the V in her robe. “No.”
Adysson swallowed and shifted her feet. She’d never been this close to such an attractive man before.
“The fine varies up and down the coast.” He gazed at the water behind her head for a moment and then returned to her face. His voice dropped to a sexy drawl. “Since this is a private beach, I’ll let you off with a verbal warning.”
Confused, she frowned. “What?”
He took a leather billfold from his front shirt pocket and flipped a badge at her. “I’m Coast Guard Commander Benjamin Yeates. My friends call me Ben.”

I love roses, chocolate, and rainy afternoons with a good book. Writing and being an author has been a lifelong dream for me. As my children grew older and left to make their own life, I found time to make my dreams a reality and haven’t stopped since. My dogs, Beethoven and Mozart, keep me company while I write, laying at my feet or guarding the door should a villain jump from my pages and come to life. Creating fantasy worlds for the stories in my head is my happy place, second only to spending time with my family.
