Beyond the limits of sight, magical beings live in the Forbidden Realm. The two worlds were once connected, but the desires of man forced their separation. Now, desire may bring them back together…
Aliya is a mermaid with an obsession. Though contact with humans is strictly forbidden, she can't seem to stay away from the incredibly handsome Devin, who visits her lake night after night. Her body and soul have never been drawn to anyone like this before. Deciding that her longing for Devin is worth the risk, she goes to him. As their lust for each other deepens, Aliya grows to need his touch as much as she needs water.
Devin believed Aliya was a perfect fantasy his mind created-until the breathtaking mermaid swims to shore. Courtesy of a magical wish, Aliya is newly human, and she and Devin give in to their passion again and again. But Aliya's mortal form is only temporary. If they don't have the strength to part ways when the time comes, their illicit love could rock the balance between the realms forever . . .
Once upon a time, there existed a veil that separated humans from the creatures that resided in the Forbidden Realm. It kept humans from the knowledge of their existence, but the Forbidden Realm is well aware of humans.
Every night, Aliya is called to the same spot where she hears a man calling out in silent pain. She can feel his desperation and loneliness. But when she glimpses him alone in the moonlight, she knows that she would risk anything to be with him.
Aliya breaks The Great Code and becomes visible to Devin. The chemistry between them cannot be denied so desperately Aliya pleads with her fairy friend, Raea to grant her a wish – a wish to be human for only a day.
“His pain. It cut through the water and begged her attention. Since the first night she had encouraged him, she’d never been able to ignore it. It was pain that consumed him beyond conscious thought. He felt things in a way that most humans she’d encountered did not. Night after night, he’s returned to this same spot while he tried to drown his emptiness. He immersed himself in passion, distracted himself with carnal enjoyment, yet that torturous pain never fully left him.”
Devin Sandstrom feels as if he is drowning in sorrow. Tragedy has made him completely numb to life – until one night he witnesses something that shouldn’t exist – but somehow does. He is willing risk everything to possess the beautiful creature that has touched his soul, but he has no idea how high the price will be.
“I have to go,” she said.
Kissed by the Wave is a fairy tale unlike any other. It’s sultry and sweet with dashes of pure emotion that will completely enthrall you.
Serena’s characters were quirky and endearing – especially Raea and Kyne – and her story was fast-paced and engaging. We can’t wait to see what the Forbidden Realm has in store for the future…

Raea made another pass over the boat. Yes, the human had returned to the lake just as on so many evenings before. The sun shone as a huge, fiery ball resting on the horizon. The man’s wishes filled the air around Raea and she knew he was in the full throes of his lustful fixation.
