The basic premise of the book is that Kellan, our Quinn, finds Gelsey and saves her. She is running away from the parties and the whole heiress/socialite thing and starts to love Ballykirk.
The best part of this book is the holiday setting in Ireland, who wouldn't want to spend a Christmas like that? Further I really liked Kellan as a character but I didn't care of Gelsey that much. She is sort of immature and stuck in her own head space. She has made mistakes and she just can't get past that to move on, in my opinion. Gelsey as a character is what brought this book down to the three rating instead of up to a four.
The prologue is quite touching and it made a wonderful start to the book. As far as Harlequin Blazes go this one was on the less all inclusive heat Richter scale. I have certainly read books with more chemistry and more passion in this series. Now if this book had come with a Quinn brother it might have hit a whole new level for reviews.
The woman lying unconscious on the Irish shore near Ballykirk can't possibly be a mermaid.can she? Still, architect Kellan Quinn wastes no time saving her life. And soon she's recovering in his home-setting his fantasies ablaze in his bed!
But heiress Gelsey Woods is no mermaid. Instead, she's hiding from the mess she's made of her life so far. And something about Kellan-and Ballykirk-feels like home, especially during the holidays.
Unfortunately, Gelsey's past is catching up with her quickly. And her only Christmas wish is that Kellan will still love his gift from the sea once he learns the truth..
