Beached by Ros Baxter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Beached is book two of the Aegira Chronicles and picks up where Fish Out Of Water left off. Princess Lecanora has learned that her best friend, Rania, is really her half sister. Lecanora is on a mission to save her world from Manos, an evil sorcerer. She has teamed up with Rania, but they will need the help of some unlikely allies. One of those allies is Doug, a hot, gun-toting mercenary, who Lecanora feels an undeniable connection. Will Lecanora and her allies be able to stop Manos?
It is an interesting take on mermaids that is a fun, action-packed romance. The characters are well developed and make the story come to life. Lecanora is a little naïve. She is also a pacifist which makes the conflict with Manos difficult for her. Lecanora uses her personality and her abilities in unique ways throughout the story. The chemistry between Doug and Lecanora was both playful and steamy. I have enjoyed this series and look forward to the next book.
