Who doesn't love
Three seductive love stories,
three passionate couples, all linked by one of the most
romantic myths of all...
The Last Mermaid is a
single volume containing three separate romances. No
fretting for sequels! The three different books composing
it span three different time periods, with three different
couples. Myth, magic, and the descendants of a legendary
couple link all three stories.
In other words, this a trilogy
without the wait!
The first book is set in the
Kingdom of the Isles (today part of Scotland) just after
the Romans abandoned what we call Great Britain, where
a fabled king owes his life to the siren who loves him.
Which is better: to rule a kingdom or embrace true love?
Hmmm, if only he could have both....
The second book takes place
in eighteenth-century Scotland. Ronan MacMhuirich is
the Earl of Kell. He's rich and powerful and knows that
someone wants him dead. Too bad the hired assassin turns
out to be both a gifted psychic and the most fascinating
woman he's ever met.
The third book is contemporary,
a big leap for me as a writer (don't worry, it's plenty
historical!), taking place in both Scotland and the
United States. Ruriko Kell is an American who has just
inherited a far-flung Scottish island she's never seen,
from a family she's never known. And just who is this
gorgeous Scotsman so intent to get her thereand
how does he know so much about her?
I love magic, and I love happy
endings. I bet you do, too.

The Best Reviews
"From the first sentence, you know
that The Last Mermaid is going to be an amazing,
mystical read. The stories are all linked by the opening
prologue that sets up the curse, and then the story's
magic takes hold.. There are a lot of exquisite details
to take in. I think it is a perfect book for those rainy
day afternoons where you want to get lost in another
"The Last Mermaid is nothing
short of hauntingly beautiful. Shana Abé has written
three enchanting tales of love and passion, with glimmers
of hope and desire. They each deal with the mystical
connections of the heart, a love so powerful that it
transcends all of time. It's the kind of love we all
"These three interconnected stories
weave a web of magic around the readers, who'll certainly
find themselves enthralled by the seductive tales of
romance through the ages and love immortal. The author
skillfully combines fantasy elements and paranormal
material together with tender romance, scorching passion,
even some suspense and action to create [three] different
sagas [that are] unusual and hence captivating. Abé
sets each story in vastly different time periods and
brings alive the history of that time and place with
palpable dexterity while maintaining a subtle thread
of connection between the tales."
The Road to Romance
