    Seduced by the Sea Lord is a sweet paranormal romance that rides just below the boiling point, focusing more on the mythology and the rebuilding of the heroine's, Lucy, well being and confidence. Lucy is a deep sea diver, a sort of wet suited Lara Croft. After her greatest find, a large Sea Opal, her husband takes off with the Opal. There are other reasons that will be revealed but nary a spoiler will I give!

    Torun is a rebel Mer Warrior on the hunt for his Queen. He is acting against the counsel and perhaps the king as he searches for this women who will be his better half. She will make him complete, revitalize his city and give him the child he desperately wants.

    That's an awful lot to put on a recent divorcee' who has put her very last cent into a leaky boat to try to once again find the source of the Sea Opals. She finds Torun caught on her anchor, and finding that he is alive, drags him on board to save him completely. And so the adventure begins.

    The writing is sweet, almost a beginner's romance novel, with nary a kink or a blind fold to be seen. There are love scenes, not sex scenes. Warm and gentle lovemaking between two meant for each other character.

    Unfortunately, the females characters, from Lucy to all by Aya, can't quite fill the CFC (complete female character) shoes. When they are alone, in a group of just the girls, we have a less graphic Sex in the City gab fest about the male lead instead of anything intellectual. Aya, on the other hand, is all business. I would truly love to see Aya as the next conquest.

    The male characters also seem less than complete, they have two gears fighting and making love, except for the slimy Blake, Lucy's ex-husband. He also has theft and murder in his arsenal.

    My favorite part or is it parts of the story are the guardians. Funny, adorable and wonderful pets with high IQ's. If I lived under the sea, I'd want Mr. Huggles for my own.

    Safe enough for a NA to read but sweet enough for a jaded romance reader to fall for.

    was a unique, refreshing, and different read. I’ve not had the pleasure of read Ms. Night nor have I picked up a merman book before. Both the author and concept where new to me.

    Hot Sexy Warrior Mermen. Oh My!!

    The start was good, but a little slow. It took some time for me to get into the book. As for the characters they aren’t overly complicated. Ms. Night does a good job of explaining her mermen, throwing in a little about Atlantis and what it once was, and how the council is set on their old ways when others can see that that way is killing them and they need to change.

    Torun is a merman and Lucy is a modern day women.

    Torun defies the Council and he has to work on convincing Lucy that she is his. If not the punishment is harsh. As for Lucy she does a lot of protesting in her head, why this or that etc. It got a little old, but not to over powering to make me dislike her. It reminding me of all women. We like to over think things. I really liked that Torun can sense Lucy’s feelings and faces them head on instead of like Lucy’s ex-husband who dropped her as soon as she was a burden. The romance was sweet. The love scenes are warm and gentle, not over powering.

    One of my favorite parts in this story are the guardians. They are just fun, adorable, and wonderful. If I lived under the sea, I’d want one as a friend/pet.

    Their where two things that made me go hmm. One scene was close to the beginning that had me going, oh no are they going to sleep together even though they don’t know each other? Please no, but thankfully the author didn’t do this and gives our hot merman Torun a chance to convince Lucy that she is his destined woman. The other thing that I found strange is that Lucy leaves her Sea Opel with one of her interns on her boat when they go back out sea. This intern is a stranger and well her ex stole the first one, so why trust this person you don’t know? It felt opposite of what her character would have done.

    Wow, this was a fresh spin on a nautical paranormal merman meets human lady romance. This book had mystery, suspense, action, love, romance, and so much more. I can't wait to read more of the series.

    I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book. The plot was good the characters were alright. I loved the guardians! They were my favorite part of the whole book. It started out a bit slow and by the end something just didn't sit right.

    An okay read, I would say. It started out good but as the story nears the middle, my interest sorts of fizzles out. So I had to reduce my rating to a two.

    P.S. The Hero referring to his future baby as a young fry cracks me up every single time.

    My Rating: Four Delightfully Entertaining Stars****

    This was my first time reading the work of Starla Night but I can truthfully say, it won't be my last! I saw this featured as a recommendation in a newsletter from one of my favorite authors and was immediately drawn to the cover so I decided to check it out. I read the blurb along with the free sample on Amazon and it really piqued my interest. I made my purchase and dove in... and what a delightful surprise! I truly enjoyed it! Seduced by the Sea Lord is a unique and exciting new twist on shifters and paranormal romance featuring hot, swoon-worthy mer-shifter males who are desperately in need of human females to mate and continue their lineage. And when they find the human female whose light shines for them, she will become their queen. You know, like the old expression goes, a man is king of his castle(home)... Well, in mer warrior society, every male's underwater home is his castle and his mate becomes his queen. I love it! I always wanted to be a queen and what better way than to become the mate of a sexy, panty-melting hot merman with a hot body covered in special tattoo markings that will make any woman drool! OMG! They were somewhat similar to cavemen, never having been exposed to modern human society and they were just the cat's meow! The story was romantic, unique, imaginative, fast-paced, easy to follow and well crafted. The narrative was beautifully written in the third person with easily identifiable his and her perspectives from the two protagonists, handsome warlord mer warrior Torum and beautiful divorced treasure seeker and diver Lucy Shaw. I was immediately smitten with both Torum and Lucy. Coming from two very different worlds, their initial meeting and subsequent interaction was nothing short of hilarious but it was also mesmerizing as well as heartbreaking. Although I truly loved the unique premise and overall storyarc for this sexy romp, it's the well-developed cast of fascinating characters who truly stole my heart. But I also loved the dialogue! It was smart, snappy, well-executed, and absolutely hilarious. I always enjoy great dialogue and in this story, I found myself completely captivated, laughing nonstop throughout the entire book. Torum found himself having to adapt to the unfamiliar and very puzzling ways of the human world, trying to understand human society, the customs as well as language, and especially the expressions and idioms used in conversation. But Lucy also found herself struggling to understand Torum and the ways of his underwater world. It was beyond entertaining. But it wasn't all fun and giggles, there's also a mother-load of conflict and heartache liberally laced with action and adventure. This book has it all! If you're in the market for a unique and very imaginative story with engaging characters and beautifully detailed world building and filled to the brim with pulse-pounding danger, heartbreaking drama, spine-tingling action, exhilarating adventure, agonizing angst, dreamy romance and steamy passion, then this book is for you! No spoilers from me but I will say this... Sexy mer warlord warrior from a predominantly male underwater world desperately yearning for his very own queen to give him a small fry (baby...lol...)-check! Beautiful, divorced, very broke and unemployed underwater diver who lost absolutely everything including her home, money, self-confidence along with any hope of ever having a child because of her selfish, unfaithful ex-husband and is once again searching for sea opals-check! Danger, drama, angst, lies, deceit, betrayal and enemies above and below the surface of the ocean-check! Dangerous sea creature guardians (named Mr Huggles and Lassie...lol...)-check! Sweet romance, undeniable passion, steamy sex and a few miracles to boot-You betcha! That and a whole lot more!

    Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! So, if I loved it so much, then why only 4 stars? First, there were a few minor hiccups but nothing that distracted me from the story. But my main criticism is the ending. There's an epilogue to the story that was not included in the book. In order to receive it, you have to sign up for Night's newsletter. I had already planned to subscribe but I don't like being forced to jump through hoops to get something which should have been included as part of the book. An author should feel confident in her work, allowing it to draw in new fans without having to dangle an epilogue as an incentive or enticement. I already paid for the book and took the time to download it. I should not have to spend more of my time downloading another file. Sorry, but that's just my opinion. And sadly, I see more and more writers resorting to this practice. Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain some steamy, dreamy love scenes! Who knew underwater sex could be so hot? Apparently, Starla Night and she expressed it exceptionally well in this story. And fyi, either Night did her homework and research extremely well or she's a diver in real life because her information and terminology were dead-on accurate. Will I read this author again? Abso-freakin-lutely! I can hardly wait to get Sacrificed to the Sea Lord, Book Two of the series, in my hot little hands! Thankfully, I don't have long to wait; it releases June 6, 2017. As a matter of fact, I've already preordered my copy! I'm not sure if Starla Night is a new author or this is just a new pen name but regardless, I'm a fan. After I finished this book, I raced to her web page and signed up for her newsletter so I'll never miss a new release! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Once I started reading, I could not stop! Before I even finished the first chapter, I was hopelessly and completely enthralled, riveted to my ereader, my heart fluttering in my chest while the time flew as quickly as the pages. I started the book late one evening and fell asleep with my Kindle still in my hands. I awakened the next morning still sitting up in bed (my favorite place to read), with my poor ereader dead as a door nail. I was so anxious to see what happened, I couldn't wait for my Kindle to recharge so I just plugged it in and kept reading! lol... Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!

My favorite Disney movie growing up was The Little Mermaid and to have such a story that puts a unique twist on such a classic perked me right up, but what I got was something even MORE special. To say Torun is one of a kind merman and hero is putting it lightly. He AMAZED me with his loyalty and protectiveness, his caring, and his love to Lucy. Every time he comforted her with her "self-injuries" just had me melting and sighing and every well descriptive thing, from the way the mermen looked, to the way the Sea Opals were made for the Mr. Huggles and Lassie and the castle and place where the mermen resided had me captivated in a way I haven't felt. I read many paranormal romances but this one is something extraordinary and special and truly exceptional!

    Starla Night won me over COMPLETELY with this STUNNING series and Seduced By The Sea charmed and delighted me in a way I am having a truly difficult time explaining. I desire SO MANY MORE of these books because Miss Night's writing, characters, amazing imaginative plot is 100% AWESOME and I want to explore MORE Lords Of Atlantis! This book is one I HIGHLY suggest you RUN to get and I am HIGHLY confidant, once you start you will dive into this book and won't want to leave. Seriously, one of the BEST books I have read...EVER!

    Seduced By The Sea gets a STUPENDOUS FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its brilliant and sweet, and charming....god, I SO want my own merman!

    Lucy is divorced, broke, and her now-ex husband stole her major archeological find a few years ago. To redeem herself, she’s searching for more Sea Opals off the coast of Cancun and finds a body instead. After she drags the sexy dark-haired man on her small ship, he wakes up and sets out to seduce her.

    Torun is in search for a human bride but the mer people have very strict rules about what type of woman is appropriate. After two fellow mer warriors leave him for dead, he finds himself on a human’s boat and recognizes Lucy as his intended bride. For him, it’s love at first sight. For Lucy, she’s sexually drawn to him but doesn’t believe they can be together. Though he tells her the truth about himself, she thinks he’s delusional but promises to help him save his native tribe (of humans, she believes) after he promises to take her to the source of the Sea Opals.

    I understood the beginning of the book but I became confused after Torun took Lucy to the underwater cave. When he telepathically spoke to her, she seemed able to understand him even though she hadn’t drank the special elixir yet. Once she finally believed that mermen are real, she totally accepts it without shock or surprise. After they were exiled, they decided to stay on land when they could’ve returned as the rulers of Sireno. Why didn’t they return? Why did so many mer warriors still want to kill them after Lucy proved herself a legitimate queen (wife) to Torun? None of this made sense to me but maybe I missed something.

    I received an ARC of the book through a newsletter subscription and I’m not sure how different the finalized copy is. In my edition, there’s a few missing words and punctuation errors. I hope that’s fixed in the final copy. Other than my confusion with a few plotlines, I thought the H/h were likable characters. Torun was righteous, determined, and devoted to Lucy. She loved him just as much and, through his acceptance of her, she started to believe in her own worth again.

    The story ends on a HEA but the epilogue is only available if you sign up for the author’s newsletter. I don’t understand why some authors do that. Since I’m subscribed, I downloaded the epilogue and it makes the HEA even sweeter.
