Doomed by the evil warlock Forwin to wander the ancient seas as a mermaid for all eternity, Perdita longs for the release death would bring. Every ten years she has a chance to break the curse when she emerges from the sea fully human for one month. The catch? She must find a man willing to die for her.
Captain Savion Ryne wants nothing to do with beautiful women. It was one such woman whose betrayal ruined his life and his reputation. After nearly drowning in a storm at sea, he wakes on an island with visions of a dark haired mermaid pulling him from the water. When a woman similar in appearance begs for his protection, he is suspicious.
Perdita has never met anyone as honorable as Savion. Even though he shuns her every advance, she falls for him. But as the end of her time on land approaches, she faces the hardest decision of all, save Savion and remain cursed for all eternity or break the curse and watch the man she loves die.
Mermaids and pirates and warlocks, oh my! MaryLu Tyndall’s newest novel, Tears of the Sea, captures a wonderful bit of fantasy within its pages. I haven’t read anything by Tyndall before (though her books have been sitting amidst many others on my “To Read” list for a while), but I am certainly glad I picked this one up. It’s an enchanting and imaginative tale of love, hope and sacrifice, as Perdita attempts to break the curse put upon her centuries ago. From the start, Tyndall hooked me in her prose and I couldn’t help but turn page after page to find out what the end would look like for Perdita and Savion. With gripping adventure and heartening romance, Tears of the Sea is a most enjoyable read and I would recommend it to readers looking for a good blend of fantasy and romance.
Thanks to MaryLu Tyndall and Pump Up Your Book, I received a copy of Tears of the Sea and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.

About the Author
Best-selling and award-winning author, MaryLu Tyndall dreamt of pirates and sea-faring adventures during her childhood days on Florida’s Coast. After obtaining a degree in math and working as software engineer for 15 years, she decided to test the waters as a writer. With now more than fourteen books published, she makes no excuses for the spiritual themes embedded within her romantic adventures. Her hope is that readers will not only be entertained but will be brought closer to the Creator who loves them beyond measure. In a culture that accepts the occult, wizards, zombies, and vampires without batting an eye, MaryLu hopes to show the awesome present and powerful acts of God in a dying world. MaryLu makes her home with her husband, six children, and several stray cats on the California coast, where her imagination still surges with the sea.
