Mark Forsythe knew it was impossible, an illusion--he'd caught a golden-haired mermaid on his fishing line! But Gillian Lockstead was deliciously real, a woman of sweet mystery who filled him with a joy he'd forgotten existed. When Gillian gazed up at her handsome rescuer, she sensed he was a man worth waiting for; when Mark kissed her, she was truly caught, captured by his seductive tenderness--and he was enchanted by the magic in her sea-green eyes. Both had children they were raising alone, both had lost spouses to tragedy--but even at first meeting, Gillian and Mark felt an unspoken kinship...and a potent desire that produced fireworks, and dreams shared. Gillian wanted Mark's love, but was it the shimmering fantasy shed woven that he adored, not the flesh-and-blood woman whose fears made her resist the temptation he offered? Could she trust Mark with the Truth and shed her mermaid's costume for the sanctuary of his arms?
