Marcela is a mermaid who takes her duties as a daughter of Triton seriously. Like all of her siblings, she takes her turn with every duty rotation - including saving the lives of sailors when a ship comes under distress. Never has she been distracted from her responsibilities, never has she stopped to dream a little dream for herself. When Prince Patricio, the angelic Prince of Meropis, is sent careening into the stormy sea, Marcela’s world is turned upside-down - literally.
Patricio is an angel beset by a curse. Charged with a god-given duty to bring sinners to justice, his magic-imbued sword sends his victims to the next life with clean souls - and leaves the sinner’s family struck with a glamour that leaves them falling over themselves to thank their loved ones’ executioner. When his interest in piqued by a mermaid that saves his life, he is disgusted to find her affection for him intense, sudden, and blind - a result of his curse, not true attraction. He’s determined to have nothing more to do with her. Until he finds himself saving the mermaid... from drowning.
With glamour following him around like a cloud, it’s difficult for an angel to be sure what’s real. A mermaid with legs and no voice. A hamadryad with a prophecy. A witch with a chip on her shoulder. The world is full of magic and mayhem and for an angel and a mermaid, it will take more than a kiss to balance... the Divine Scales.
