This is the first book I have read by this author and I really liked it. I have always been interested in Atlantis and paranormal romances. This book did a good job of combining the two. This is the first book in The Warriors of Poseidon series. The back of the book explains the storyline as follows:

When she calls...

Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's blessed with a mind link that only Atlantaens have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below...

He will come.

Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon's stolen Trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions-and desires-of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds?

My thoughts: Riley is a strong woman and not the damsel in distress. She has a cool power she does not know how to control. She also has a kick butt twin named Quinn who is featured in the second book in this series. Conlan is your basic alpha male with a bad past experience that haunts him. I wish the book would have better explained some of the minor characters, at times they were just thrown in. I would recommend this book to any paranormal romance fan.
