Architect Kai Murdoch has just returned to Cromer for a little R&R—and for a merman, that means a nice late-night swim. His discovery of another merman, Tyler, and his wife Zoe, rouses more than just his interest: it’s been a long time since he met another like himself. Now, finally, he might have found the right lovers to make himself feel whole.
Zoe loves the idea of being with both Tyler and Kai, and Kai wants it too. Tyler likes to watch but at first is resistant to his attraction to Kai.
Zoe is an archaeologist, half-human and half-Talent, working on an underwater dig off Cromer, which is suddenly attracting all kinds of interest—of the wrong kind. With Zoe and Tyler in danger, Kai calls in the Department 57 team of Talents to find their common enemy. Along the way, as the threesome learn to depend on each other for protection as well as sexually, Tyler learns that Kai is truly meant to be a part of his and Zoe’s life.
Liquid Tides is part of the Department 57 series, but also works as a stand-alone title. The exotic setting—along with the exotic and sexy mermen—makes a great erotic romp as well as adventure story under Connolly’s deft writing.
