In Over Her Head

Mer Book 1, Reel & Erica

Do you like fun, quirky and original characters? Well, I do and In Over Her Head has a multitude of them. So many characters are memorable and each has their own story of life, love and fear under the big blue sea. This series is shaping up to be an undersea adventure that's not to be missed. In Over Her Head is the first book in this fishy new series and two more books have already been planned.
Erica Peck is terrified of the ocean, but has taken over her family’s marina. She will buck it up and face her fears of the ocean, but only so far… no going into the water. While taking out some tourists she decides it's a great time to scatter her grandfathers ashes into the sea, a place that he loved. That leads to big trouble for Erica. Her two timing ex had stashed his diamonds in the urn and now has her at gunpoint. He demands that she dive down to a shipwreck to retrieve them. When she isn't able to find them he shoots her and leaves her for dead. Luckily for Erica…or maybe not…Mer prince Reel finds her. With a kiss he makes her an air and water breather. Reel is a Mer prince and making Erica a water breather is against the law. Reel isn't known for his good deeds. He's more of a do as he pleases type of guy. He's what's called the spare. His older brother Rod has it all. Good looks and the required Mer tail, while Reel has legs. Yep, a Mer without a tail. Reel is looked down on by his kind and rebels because of what life gave him. What he doesn't know is that if he completes a selfless act he too can have a tail and become immortal like the other Mers.
Erica is not thrilled to be living under the sea. She is prohibited from ever returning to land. The Mer council has made it very clear it's the sea or death. What an option for a water hater.
Soon Erica and Reel are searching for the missing diamonds as they are also of interest to the Mers. They find that a female sea monster has them. They have to find some way of either tricking the diamonds out of her or doing an exchange. Well, the monster has her sights on Reel. With a son from him she would have more power. What will Reel do to get out that situation. Men who sleep with the she sea monster never come back.
Through trials and tribulations Erica and Reel find love under the sea. Will Erica ever become comfortable with her new digs? Will Reel earn immortality and a tail? Can Erica accept a fishy mate… tail…legs and all? Well, you will just have to find out. In Over Her Head is a laugh out loud undersea adventure that readers are sure to relish. I'm looking forward to the next book, Wild Blue Under. That story is about Rod Triton. The heir to the Mer throne. Then after that one of Reel's sisters finds her mate on land.

Book Blurb for In Over Her Head

When Erica Peck, one terrified-of-the-ocean marina owner, finds herself at the bottom of the sea conversing with a Mer man named Reel, she thinks she's died and gone to her own version of Hell. When the Oceanic Council demands she and Reel retrieve a lost cache of diamonds from the resident sea monster in return for their lives, she knows she's died and gone to Hell.

When they escape the monster and end up on a deserted island, she amends her opinion - she's died and gone to Heaven.

But when Reel sacrifices himself to allow her to return to her world, she realizes that, Heaven or Hell, with Reel, she's In Over Her Head.
