Cindy Spencer Pape
Blending Science Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure and Romance, One Story at a Time

Author of over fifty books and novellas in paranormal, historical, and erotic romance, Cindy Spencer Pape is an avid reader of romance, fantasy, mystery, and even more romance. According to The Romance Studio, her plots are "full of twist and turns that keep the reader poised at the edge of their seat." Joyfully Reviewed said, her "colorful characters and plot building surprises kept me spellbound," and Romantic Times Magazine says her "characters are appealing, and passionate sex leads to a satisfying romance."

Cindy firmly believes in happily-ever-after. Married for more than thirty years to her own, sometimes-kilted hero, she lives in southern Michigan with him and two spoiled dogs.  Cindy has been, among other things, a banker, a teacher, and an elected politician, but mostly an environmental educator. Now, though, she is lucky enough to write full-time. When she's not busy writing, she can be found renovating her 1870 home, dressing up for Renaissance fairs or steampunk events or with her nose buried in a book.

Dead! Well, not quite. Yet.
Heidi’s day started out well enough, studying dolphins with best friend and research partner, but things took a turn when they got caught in the middle of a drug exchange. Her friend is missing, probably dead, and Heidi was shot at and left to die, too.

Girl meets…guy?
Then the hottest boat bum she’s ever seen rescues her. Tall, dark and handsome, Jake is every girl’s dream. Still, the last thing on her mind is romance. The drug dealers figured out pretty quick she wasn’t dead. Now, they want to finish the job, and her mysterious, drop-dead gorgeous rescuer might not be able to save her-or himself.

Jake’s got a fishy secret of his own-complete with fins. He’s exiled from his colony and cursed to shapeshift with the moon. As a merman, Jake can’t afford to be around humans, especially a marine biologist who might discover his species. But he can’t throw Heidi to the men after her. He’ll fight drug lords, pirates and even the gods to protect her. Piece of cake, right? It’s easier than the other problem, the biggest problem of all: the massive attraction growing between Jake and Heidi, an attraction neither can deny.

A centuries-old merman and an air-breathing, very human scientist might fall in love,  but where would they live? And can that love even survive?
