Dr. Clay Grayson believes he may have found his mate, yet the Merman’s entire world comes to a standstill at the knowledge she is human.

Alwen is ecstatic when her father’s doctor, and her fantasies’ leading man, finally asks her out. However while the chemistry between them is undeniable, there is something strange about Clay that she can’t quite put her finger on.

Alone with Alwen, Clay confirms that she is, in fact, his mate. Overcome with the feeling of knowing how lucky he is to have found his mate when so many Merpeople don’t, he takes no chances and claims her, binding them together.

When Alwen learns what Clay is, will she accept him and forgive his rash action of mating her without her permission?


Review:  A Merman of Her Own is the first book in the Merpeople series by Hazel Gower. I chose this book because while I have read tons of books on shifters I have not read a merpeople shifter book. I was fascinated and wanted to know how this book would turn out.

Dr. Clay Grayson is a medical doctor who at the age of forty nine is still looking of his soul mate. Clay is a shifter and shifts into a merman. He lives on the water and swims every chance he can. He is blown away by the thought of having a human mate because of how rare it is.

Alwen is a young woman at the age of twenty just about to turn twenty one. Alwen meets Clay when her father is in the hospital and survives despite the odds against it. Alwen has dreams of opening her own dance studio helping people of all ages. Alwen comes across as a sweet and caring woman who seems older than her years.

The connection between Alwen and Clay is intense. Its apparent from the beginning that both Clay and Alwen are head over heels in love with other. The sex scenes were blistering.

I found this book is very well written with a very unique plot. The main and secondary characters were fascinating and enthralling. At thirty four pages long, this story had a well-defined beginning, middle and end. The ending of the story was a bit predictable but it was more the ride to the end that was more important. Overall, this was a great book.
