In the Dragon’s Eye is where I share the books I’ve got my acquisitive eye on: the ones I’m really excited about and hope to read and perhaps add to the hoard. I also link to “Waiting On” Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Cover links take you to Goodreads; all blurbs are also from Goodreads.
Bay of Sighs (Nora Roberts)
To celebrate the rise of their new queen, three goddesses of the moon created three stars, one of fire, one of ice, one of water. But then they fell from the sky, putting the fate of all worlds in danger. And now three women and three men join forces to pick up the pieces…
Mermaid Annika is from the sea, and it is there she must return after her quest to find the stars. New to this world, her purity and beauty are nothing less than breathtaking, along with her graceful athleticism, as her five new friends discovered when they retrieved the fire star.
Now, through space and time, traveler Sawyer King has brought the guardians to the island of Capri, where the water star is hidden. And as he watches Annika in her element, he finds himself drawn to her joyful spirit. But Sawyer knows that if he allows her into his heart, no compass could ever guide him back to solid ground…
And in the darkness, their enemy broods. She lost one star to the guardians, but there is still time for blood to be spilled—the mermaid’s in the water and the traveler’s on the land. For she has forged a dangerous new weapon. Something deadly and unpredictable. Something human.

I’m liking that cover! Hope you enjoy it a spot more than book one when it gets here 🙂

Same here! I liked book one, I just didn’t love it like I have some of her other books. But I think it will get better as it goes on, especially since Annika isn’t hiding her true nature anymore.

I’m looking forward to this one as well though I didn’t love Annika as much as I loved the main character in the first one (can’t remember her name!). I’m curious to see what Roberts does with a mermaid!
I’m looking forward to it, too, although I haven’t yet fallen in love with the series like I did with the Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy.
