“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
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.

Mermen? Never heard of a Merman, but if we have Mermaids then why can’t we have Mermen?
Well written, were the author draws the reader in at the very beginning and holds them in awe.
The characters are passionate, engaging and very likeable. The storyline is unique, intriguing, thought-provoking, and compelling.
I enjoyed the H/H, the chemistry between them and how they come to grips with their circumstances. Can they keep their love or lose everything? The heroine learns a few family secrets along the way, as well. Who really was her mother? Be prepared for some hot, steamy love scenes. Plenty of action with some twists and turns.
Fans of Fantasy are sure to enjoy this book, as well as, romance readers of Folklore, Mythology, and Fairy Tales.
Ms. Mason has done it again with her latest release, “Sins Against the Sea”. A must read! Very enjoyable and satisfying! I look forward to the next tale from Ms. Mason. She never fails to keep her readers engaged, and entranced with her stories. Pick up your copy today, you will be glad you did.
