Mermaids are different than the tales you hear. They are dangerous, they are untamed, they are wild beasts. To counter the balance of good and evil, sirens strive to protect unsuspecting sailors from these devilish creatures. Lilah knows this, and being a siren with the gift of song, she specializes in luring their ships away from the rocky shores of Shiloh, the mermaid's lair. Her ultimate goal: obtain enough good deeds to join the Sisters of the Air and receive her very own immortal soul.
But one day, something goes wrong, and Lilah doesn't save a ship in time. What she does save is one mortal man: a stubborn, irritating pirate with no regard for her until she sings him to sleep. The bond is set from then on.
Separated by laws beyond their control, Lilah is determined to cross oceans to find her pirate, and save him from the influence of the mer. But will all her efforts grant her the soul she so desires, or ruin her and diminish her to foam?
