Siren's Call (Dark Tides Book 1) Kindle Edition
As a woman with a secret, lighthouse keeper Tessa Lonike savors her solitude on the island of Little Mer, off the coast of Maine. During a violent storm, Tessa spots a man thrashing in the ice cold waters and dives in to save him, using her ability as a mermaid to easily pull him to shore. When Kenneth Randall awakens on the beach he is alone, left with the haunting memory of his beautiful, flame-haired savior.
But a year later, when Kenneth meets her again, he’s determined not to let Tessa slip away. Just as the desire between them begins to burn, Tessa’s archaeologist ex-lover comes back to town with a tantalizing clue to her murky heritage. The trio travel to the Mediterranean in search of answers, and when Tessa inadvertently opens an underwater portal they find a lost mermaid city. But in the deep, not everything is as it seems, and Tessa must decide if she wants to take her place as the royal heir, or follow the call of her heart…

I picked up a copy of this book after it was mentioned in an online book group I belong to and, having never read this author before, I wasn't too sure what to expect. This is the first book in a trilogy about a trio of mermaid sisters. From the blurb I thought this was going to be pretty standard paranormal romance, but it actually has a bit of a fantasy angle to it.
The book does start as a romance, but about halfway through a storyline is introduced about how Tessa is searching for her mermaid roots and suddenly the subplot takes over. The setting moves from Maine to the Mediterranean with Tessa and Kenneth teaming up with her ex-fiance Jake to go in search of the lost mer city of Ishaldi. I was a bit disappointed in the book as while I initially liked Tessa, her behaviour once Jake was introduced made her seem very selfish - and also made Kenneth look like a doormat. That said the characters are well written, and I'll probably get on better with the future books as I preferred Tessa's sisters.
The idea of the discovery of Ishaldi was interesting, although it seems every lost city is based in the Mediterranean. I would have loved that aspect of the book to take a greater role, especially as the romance between Tessa and Kenneth didn't really get much page time. The author did a brilliant job creating the city and its mer inhabitants, right down to a quite intricate (although pretty image focused) class system.
All in all, this was an okay read and I'll probably pick up a copy of Siren's Surrender eventually.
