The Sea Witch
The Sea Witch
By Katee Robert
Once upon a time, I met a man who stole my heart.
In my desperation to reunite with him, I have nowhere to turn but the Sea Witch. Ursa is as beautiful as she is dangerous, and the one person my father warned me never to let close. But she’s all crimson lips and pretty lies, and I’m convinced despite my fear.
It’s a simple enough plan, if not for the faint of heart. An auction to sell the one thing I possess of any value—myself. The money will free Alaric and then we can finally be together.
Except nothing is simple at all.
Ursa is playing at games I can only begin to comprehend. And Alaric? The man I thought I loved might be just as much a villain as the woman I can’t help but be drawn to.
When playing in the darkest depths of love and lust, it will be everything I can do not to drown.
I feel like every review I write for a Katee Robert’s book is about how freaking hot and sexy the book is. And that’s 100% true for The Sea Witch. In this spin on The Little Mermaid, Katee Robert gives as a menage between Ursa, Alaric, and Zurielle. This is her first FMF romance and I didn’t realize how much I would especially love the scenes between Ursa and Zurielle. Innocent Zurielle gets caught in Ursa and Alaric’s scheme for revenge against her father. This initially caused me a little discomfort, especially with the virginity auction for Zurielle. However, the revenge plot quickly gives way to the extreme attraction between the three characters. With her blinders removed, Zurielle is forced to take a hard look at her life and decide if she wants to return to her father’s cage or swim free. Ursa, the powerful Sea Witch and territory leader, has to learn to lower her guard and let her lovers in. This leaves Alaric the weakest character and I’ll admit, he wasn’t my favorite. I probably would have been happy with the relationship just being between Ursa and Zurielle but I do see the appeal. Overall, a sexy and steamy read that you’d expect from Katee Robert’s Wicked Villains series.
