When an omega werewolf cast himself into the sea, he never expected someone would be there to catch him…
Omega Devon Griffith feels like his life is already over; he’s failed out of school and it’s just a matter of time before his parents arrange a loveless mating for the good of the pack. He wants someone to love him for himself, but it seems like he’s missed his chance. When he gives in to a dark impulse and slips into the sea, he thinks that one moment of surrender will be the end…
Sea god Lir has spent years living only in the present, forgetting his own troubled past and never worrying about the future. Then his father issues an ultimatum: Lir needs to prove he can care for someone else, or he’ll be banished from the sea forever. Lir doesn’t even know where to start, until a werewolf falls into his sea and nearly drowns. This is Lir’s chance to show he can be responsible for a mortal. He may not know anything about werewolves, but how hard can it be?
When Devon’s heat arrives, Lir quickly discovers that caring for him takes more than just food, water, and shelter… and Devon finally feels like he has a future worth looking forward to. Alone together on Lir’s enchanted island with a baby on the way, their love quickly blooms. But Devon can’t quite forget his life on land, no matter how hard Lir tries to keep him happy in their hideaway. Can Lir and Devon’s love survive beyond their magical island, or will too much reality break the sea’s spell?
Surrendered to the Sea is an m/m mpreg romance featuring a lost omega werewolf, a lonely sea god, and a happy ending hot enough to melt icebergs!
Take one depressed werewolf, make him an Omega, and take one creature of the sea and up his status to sea god who can take any shape. Make them fall in love and isolate them on a handmade island and you got one heck of a story.
This story intrigued me and surprised me. I love mermen stories and I love werewolf stories, so I thought, wow, combining them into one story should be awesome. I was not disappointed.
The plot is sweet and romantic and the characters are developed in such a way that we get to know them very well separately and together. Devon is a depressed Omega who feels like a piece of property his parents want to sell to the highest bidder. Lir is given an ultimatum by his father to take care of a mortal and to learn from them. Lir ends up rescuing Devon from the ocean and creates an island for him with the help of his brothers. He then proceeds to take care of him and provide for him. I loved the way that Lir dotes on and takes care of every wish and need that Devon has. Devon’s heat comes on and Lir takes care of him during that time as well. I won’t mention any more of the story because I encourage you to read this book. It is very beautiful and shows how opposites can attract and can be compatible.
I will mention the ending though. It was a fantastic ending and was everything I wanted it to be. I was so happy that the author wrote that ending. I loved it and thank you to the author.
