“My bleeding heart, my open vein, a feast for the gulls of this storm born world. I weep openly, for if they read my tears they will know I am real.”
– J. R. Rogue, Le Chant des Sirénes
Rough men in hard times desire one thing, a woman to love. If it turns out she loves him too, he’ll change his life and march for an eternity, even kick down the doors of Hell to find his way back to her arms. This is the story about Derek, a sailor, who exhausts his life trying to get back to Mera, the love of his life. The only complication is Mera being a mermaid.
