Between desire and love there are some things that can’t stay buried, even in the deep of the ocean. As a woman with a secret, lighthouse keeper Tessa Lonike savors her solitude on the island of Little Mer, off the coast of Maine. During a violent storm, Tessa spots a man thrashing in the ice cold waters and dives in to save him, using her ability as a mermaid to easily pull him to shore. When Kenneth Randall awakens on the beach he is alone, left with the haunting memory of his beautiful, flame-haired savior. But a year later, when Kenneth meets her again, he’s determined not to let Tessa slip away. Just as the desire between them begins to burn, Tessa’s archaeologist ex-lover comes back to town with a tantalizing clue to her murky heritage. The trio travel to the Mediterranean in search of answers, and when Tessa inadvertently opens an underwater portal they find a lost mermaid city. But in the deep, not everything is as it seems, and Tessa must decide if she wants to take her place as the royal heir, or follow the call of her heart…

Disclaimer: ARC copy provided by author for an honest review.
I liked that it wasn't instant love at first finn,Tessa is wary and cautious of Kenneth, not really wanting him around after he returns when he is emotionally healed. I did enjoy the sexual chemistry between them, i love when an author builds such delicious tension between her characters.
With Siren's Call you get a lovely romance, twists and turns with the plot, a different paranormal story to sink your teeth into, characters to love and love to hate.
The author takes you on a fascinating ride through mermaid mythology. I wasn't too sure when the story seemed to take a turn into sci-fi it gave me a HUH moment and i lost concentration a little.
Overall it is a nice tale, something different from all the vampires, werewolves and demons out there. And the second book in the series sees Gwen, Tessa's sister take centre stage, Siren's Surrender is out in February 2011!
I give Siren's Call by Devyn Quinn 3 stars out of 5.
