With a new gift burning under my skin, our rag-tag delegation has entered deeper waters.
In the dual courts of Limuria, politics foist unwanted suitors in my path. Their princes line up for a chance to be my consort, but the only option for my heart is a mischievous rogue from the shadowed Dark Court. Capricious in every way, this makara will test my scales.
Then, unknown customs stand in the way of what is mine once we enter the dangerous Dragon’s Triangle. The last sea dragon prince is a familiar face in an unfamiliar world, but are we too late to save him from a fate worse than mine? I’ve been thrown into a contest to win the dragon’s favor.
What’s a siren to do? Luckily—lures are my specialty. I’ll bring in my own catch.
As if braving storms, pirates, and sleazy suitors wasn’t enough, danger stalks my every move from the shadows of the ocean depths across these hidden exotic kingdoms. I’d have everything under control if it weren’t for my siren’s hunger for what I cannot allow. I’m quickly in over my head facing an unknown future and a past that won’t be forgotten. If my mates get too close, they could drown with me.
The Depths are murky, dark, and deep, and I have fated mates to claim and keep.
The second act of Aria & the Seven Seas dives deeper into this siren’s journey. In Deeper Water is a 54+K romance novel set in a fantasy-historical “why choose” world, where magic goes hand in hand with technology and people don’t have to settle for just one lover. Recommended for mature readers.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
IN DEEPER WATER is the second in the Aria and the Seven Seas series and continues where book one left off.
In this one, Aria adds to her Royal Pod but it isn't as easy as you may think. Political machinations, pirates, and leviathans all feature here. Each kingdom is so very different from the previous ones. I love how Aria is herself, no matter what. The other members of her Pod become clear but the road to true love is never smooth, so Aria and her Pod have some work to do before they all get their HEA.
No middle-book-slump for this series, no sirree. Instead, we have a story full of action and adventure, with plenty of steam. The relationships within the Pod make it so much more interesting than 'just' an erotic tale.
A great addition to the series and definitely recommended by me. Can't wait for the finale.

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Gwyneira Blythe is a romance novel junkie with a love of all things witchy, paranormal, and historical, plus the occasional dashes of sci-fi when the mood hits.
She loves stroopwafels with her hot beverages, believes there will never be a thing as too much garlic, lives for ASMR music while writing, and deep down holds tight to the belief that magic is real and in all of us.
When she's not writing, it's a mad world of toddler tantrums, dogs barking, and a cat dashing underfoot all while sneaking kisses from the bemused husband.
