A slow recognition crept through her. She concentrated hard on the adult form swimming her way and resisted the idea forming in her mind, because it felt outrageous. No. It can't be, she thought even as her perceptions insisted otherwise.

She sensed his death and then ignored the posibility for several days. She couldn't be sure, couldn't know after all this time, could she? More than forty years had passed sinjce she'd last seen him, and they hadn't been bonded, not truly... how could she know?
-Page 1, Breakwater by Errin Stevens
The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.
For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one's around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won't do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation...
The solution doesn't inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights- namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they'll restore orfer, distibute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.
