sinsagainstthesea“If the merfolk were real, imagine how they might feel about the way we humans treat the ocean. That was my premise for Sins Against the Sea, a story deeply steeped in the mythology and folklore of the Scottish isles.”
–Nina Mason, author

Title: Sins Against the Sea
Author: Nina Mason
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Mythology
Heat Level: Moderately steamy
Format: Kindle and Paperback

Cordelia Parker, an oil company spokeswoman, has never believed in magic, despite her late mother’s fanciful stories. Then, during an oil spill in Scotland’s mysterious Minch, her reality is shattered when she stumbles upon a merman in a hidden cave. Even more shocking, she feels the same soul-level connection to him she felt for the ocean before it claimed both her parents.

A fish out of water in his sexist culture, Cuan feels a powerful attraction to Cordelia, but, because she knows what he is, he is duty-bound to kill her. If humankind discovers the Blue Men of the Minch are real, they will destroy them the way they destroy the ocean, whose abundance belongs at once to all and none. Thus, the only way he can have a life with her is to prove she is more than she appears, trust her with his secrets, and give up his undersea world.

With so many obstacles to overcome, they will need a miracle to be together…or maybe just a splash of ancient island magic.







I received an ARC from the AUTHOR NINA MASON in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismoousey’s very honest of her book SINS AGAINST THE SEA.

I never expected to read such a magical and compelling one as I did. The way in which she has created and described in such detail her characters in such depth. They have not only have character but are also in 3D. You are able to picture them right before your eyes. As for the scenes -Ms Mason has described them right down to the smallest detail. As a reader you are able to picture the fin of the merman as if you are standing right next to him.
