Logan Hardington would like nothing better than to be a responsible and loving father to his six year old son, Michael. After Michael’s mother, Rainbow, abandoned him on his doorstep, Logan is determined to give his son a normal childhood, something he had never had. However, when a beautiful goddess of a woman appeared out of nowhere, naked on his boat, Logan certainly did not expect the turn his life was about to take, and it’s far from ordinary.

Angel Tritone is a mermaid, a Mer, to be exact. As one of the children of the royal family, she is a princess, but unfortunately, Angel is overshadowed by her big sisters. More than anything, she wants to be seen as an independent adult and taken seriously for her scientific research among the Humans. When her brother rejected her for the position as Director of the Mer/Human Coalition and forbid her to interact with Humans, Angel was defiant and chose to continue with her studies anyway. That’s when she swam into Harry the Hammerhead shark, waiting to make a meal out of her. Luck was on her side when a Human child hooked her by the tail while fishing, but if her existence is revealed than the penalty for her indiscretion, if found out, will be severe.

 When Michael persuaded Logan to hire Angel as his babysitter, Logan thought he would be able to keep his sexual appetite for her under control, but with every sensual action, touch and glance that Angel unconsciously made, it drove Logan to the edge of sanity. How was he going to maintain a professional attitude with such a gorgeous, seductive woman? Could his mother’s prophecy about his true love coming from the sea ring true?
