About the Book:


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24989660-siren-s-call
Mermaid mythology meets Native American lore. 

She was irresistible to every man…except one 

Lily Borsage is the ultimate siren: gorgeous, aloof and irresistible to all the men in Bayou La Siryna. All of them, that is, until Nashoba Bowman comes back to town. The Native American kid whose innocent first kiss Lily remembers fondly is now all grown-up, hot as an Alabama summer—and immune to Lily's charms. What self-respecting mermaid could resist finding out more? 

But Nash has a dark history that puts any woman he loves in grave danger, and a heritage of power he isn't ready to accept. And Lily has a secret that no mortal man can ever know. When a mysterious enemy starts menacing Lily, they will both have to risk everything—and embrace their deepest destinies—if they want to survive.

*This book can be read as a standalone and has no erotic content.

This book is available at Amazon IN, Amazon US, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google Books and Harlequin.

My Review:


A view weeks ago I was invited to read ‘Siren’s Call’. I’ve never read a book about mermaids before, but since this book was prescribed as a romance/ mystery book, I was really intrigued and wanted to check it out. This book is the third one in the Dark Seas series, but can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the previous two books and didn’t feel like I missed out at all.

In ‘Siren’s Call’ we meet Lily Borsage, a siren. Lily is gorgeous and every man she meets is immediately attracted to her. Everything about Lily draws men in. And although Lily definitely likes being beautiful, being a siren isn’t easy. All woman hate her, and all the men think she’s playing with them. What they don’t know is that all that Lily want’s is to find true love. But this isn’t easy when every guy you meet doesn’t seem interested in you, but only in your body and your voice. And that’s not the only thing, she also has a secret she can’t talk to ‘normal’ people about: she is a mermaid.
One day she sees a very handsome man walking around town, soon she realizes he is her old friend Nash, and he is gorgeous. But Nash doesn’t seem interested in Lily at all. Isn’t he affected by her Siren abilities? Nash has secrets of his own, and really doesn’t want the attention of another woman. But Lilly doesn’t give up quickly.

This is the first book I read about mermaids. I always found mermaids fascinating but somehow never read a book about them. So I really enjoyed reading something a little different. This story immediately starts, there’s no slow introduction or getting used to the characters. From the very first page this book starts with Lily and Cash, and I really felt like I was reading this book longer than just for one page. It was a little strange to start a book like this, but it definitely made me interested in reading more.

This book was definitely not what I expected. I somehow thought this book would be kind of a fairytale, but it’s written in the present and it’s about the ‘real world’. Yes, the main character is a mermaid. But most of all, she just lives in a little town, enjoys painting and interacts with people like we all do.
Unfortunately I didn’t really like the main character Lily. She was just so arrogant, and although I know this is because she is a siren and has these powers.. the arrogance bothered me. Fortunately, Debbie Herbert’s writing is good enough that I really did enjoy the story, without liking the main character.

I loved the mystery part in this book, the romance and above all I loved the mermaid stuff. This book is definitely a nice summer read. Nothing too complicated, but just a fun book you can read while lying in the sun.
