Sirens don’t fall in love with humans. For centuries it has been so…

But Sirena is different. She lost her first love to sharks and a storm, cursing the islands that stole him from her. 

Times have changed and she must swim ashore once more, to the islands she once cursed. 

Gone are the boats powered by sail and steam – jet boats with GPS are now the order of the day. 

Enter Joe, the deckhand on the Dolphin. A handy man to have around when the lights go out. He’ll fix your generator and have the lights back on in no time, no worries. 

But can he seduce a siren?

Or will she swim away before he can uncover her secret?

A book about lobsters, beer and boobs, on some cursed islands off the coast of Western Australia. At least, that's how Joe tells it. 

For Sirena, it's a very different story. 

You'll never look at mermaids the same way again.
