Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop




Wow where did this summer go? I can't beleive we are almost half way thru august already. So you have a lot of Blogs to get though and and not a lot of summer left to enjoy so I will make this very quick and simple.


My Hero for the Summer is Rescue Swimmer Kaleb Thaldon from the latest Wiccan Haus Novel Sirens Serenade

The mysterious Mermaid from the first book tells her tale (tee hee) and falls in love with hunky Coast Guard  rescue Swimmer Kaleb in the process. And yes for those of you who have been wondering you will get to catch up with All the Sibs, Myron, Dana, and of course Rekkus. (the islands big ole pussycat)


When Coast Guard rescue swimmer Kaleb Theldon sees what he's sure is a mermaid pulling his partner into the murky depths of the Bering Sea, they call it PTSD. In order to save his career, Kaleb agrees to a week at an island spa off the coast of Maine. But the spa is nothing like he expected, and he isn't prepared for the sexy siren that crosses his path. But will her passion be more than one mere human can take?

Serena has a problem, and after four previous visits to the Wiccan Haus, she'd expected things to get easier. But on the mermaid’s fifth visit, Kaleb walks in and everything in her life becomes complicated. Never has she wanted to mate with a human man before. But can she love a man who has a chip on his shoulder a league long when it comes to mermaids? Can she deal with her own issues all while keeping her true self secret from the man she loves?

And will loving him prove deadly?

This time, the staff have more than healing on their agenda. Can the siblings, Myron, and Rekkus prove to these two lovers that things aren't always how they appear on the surface? Or will Kaleb's demise be found in his Siren's Serenade?

Welcome back to the Wiccan Haus.


Excerpt
They had come to the cliffs looking over the ocean. The moonlight lit a runway across the rippling waters below. He couldn’t look at her, didn’t want to see her laugh—or worse, decide he was crazy. “I was rescuing a friend from the waters off the coast of Alaska. That area isn’t kind on the best of days, and this was a rocky sea kind of day. A fishing vessel made a distress call. The ship was taking on water and they had abandoned ship as it sank. We had a man in the water so numb he couldn’t get into the ring, and my buddy Jim jumped in to help. We brought up the man and I lowered the wire to bring Jim up. Just then a huge wave took the ‘copter within feet of the water. Jim reached out to grab my hand, when a woman swam up beside him…and then he was gone under the water, staring up at me for a second before I lost him completely.”

Serena laughed. “That’s ridiculous.”

Kaleb gritted his teeth so hard he was sure he’d crack a tooth.

“Mermaids don’t live in Alaska. It’s too cold.”

“Excuse me?”

“Why would any mermaid want to live in those waters? It’s cold enough here.”

Kaleb shook his head to clear it, turned to look at her because no one in all the time he was going through this had reacted like this. “Let me get this straight: you aren’t arguing with me that mermaids exist, just that they don’t live in the Bering Sea?”

“Well, I suppose they could live there, but I can’t imagine wanting to. I mean there…” She stopped, her mouth forming an “O.”

“You were saying?”

“Nothing. I just don’t think you’re any crazier than anyone else here on the island.”

Now it was his turn to laugh. “You’re not very reassuring.”

  2. I'd like Shifting Hearts as it's on my TBR list, which is way too long and I'm sure I'm not the only one either! LOL
    My summer hero right now is actually a demon named Shade from Larissa Ione's Demonica series. He's that tough guy we all love, but when a gal catches him and he falls hard, and then the word 'baby' pops up and he becomes an awesome dad....that's what I love!

    Thank you very much for the chance!

  3. A hero is hot when he's got that tender heart on the inside (the one where it's completely obvious to everyone but him that he's in love and wants to be loved in return) but on the outside he's Alpha and strong, kind of a bad ass attitude sort-of look. :)

    Thanks for the chance to win! I'm a GFC follower and FB friend :) I'd love to add Tony's Haven to my collection!

  4. I'd really like to win Shifting Hearts if Siren's Serenade isn't an option. I haven't read a book involving a mermaid before, but I already love the blurb and the excerpt. I've put it on my wishlist/TBR list. As for my summer hero, so far it's Jake Talbert from The Last Warrior by Kristen Kyle. I love the East meets West influence of the hero.

  5. One of my faves this summer is Lysander from Immortalis series by Katie Salidas.

    A hot hero to me is one that is rough around the edges but has a heart of gold (sometimes deeply buried but its there). Also a fierce protectiveness with those he cares about.

  15. A hero gives his all for what he believes in. He is loyal, caring, respectful and loving. He might hide all of that under an attitude but thats the fun of reading a book and finding about the hero. I'd love to read your Shifting Hearts. Thanks for the giveaway.
