Hunted for my present. Haunted by my past. Loved by a nightmare.

I already died once. Changed twice. After everything, I just want to keep the life I have now.

Not an easy feat by any means for a fugitive mermaid stranded on land, but one made even harder when my former sisters send a private investigator to hunt me down.

Seeing I’m in trouble, my dashing Italian boss at the ice-cream parlor offers me a way to escape the clutches of my past.

All I have to do, is open up.

But revealing the taint of my previous life…

What if that’s precisely the thing that sends him running in the other direction?

Because who I was…

I wasn’t just unlovable.

I was a natural predator—with men like him as my prey.

PARADISE OF SHADOWS AND DEVOTION is a steamy standalone paranormal romance set in Gaja J. Kos's Kolovrat Universe. If you're a fan of mermaids, dragon shifters, mythology, and scorching hot chemistry, you won't want to miss out on this one!
