Leah Sunderland has been cheated out of the last eight years of her life, thanks to a coma. To make matters even worse, she’s died and can’t quite get to Heaven. Instead, she’s stuck in the middle of nowhere with no company except a fairy godmother named Mabel. Since it’s Mabel’s fault that Leah died, she offers Leah a choice: remain on earth as a ghost forever, or complete a fairy-tale task like the stories of old.
When Leah picks the fairy tale, she has no idea what she’s getting into. In the space of minutes, she’s dumped into the ocean, robbed of her voice, and given a tail. Mabel’s decree: make the handsome prince fall madly in love with her in the next thirty days, or else she’s right back to ghost-world.
The problem is, the man Leah needs to seduce thinks that she is the mistress of his sworn enemy. He wants nothing to do with her.
The second problem? She’s fallen in love with him.
And that’s against all the rules of the mermaid curse.
THE MERMAID CURSE is a 90,000 word paranormal romance.
I'm not sure why I'm seeing all these "can't get into heaven till you perform a trick" books lately but this has to be the tenth at least.
There's nothing here but gimmick. Focus on the story: Leah. Write short declarative sentences. Leave the cute for later. Tell us what she wants and who is standing in her way. Does she WANT to get to heaven? If I was in limbo, the place I'd want to be is back in New York. Damn fast too. And why does she pick the mermaid fairy err...tail?
