On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It’s where I list all the books I desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It’s also an event that you can join in with too – Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own ‘On My Wishlist’ post. If you want to know more click here. (Idea inspired by The Story Siren)
As this is House of Night Week, I thought my wishlist this week would contain books by the same author, P. C. Cast.
Goddess of the Sea (Goddess Summoning #1)
P. C. Cast (Berkley)
Publication Date: 1 June 2006
Paperback: 416 pages
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Home alone on the night of her twenty-fifth birthday, Air Force Sergeant Christine Canady yearned for something to cure her loneliness. After drinking too much champagne, she recited a divine invocation to revive her humdrum life. But how was she to know the spell would actually work?
When her plane crashes into the ocean, CC’s life changes forever. She awakens, bewildered, to find herself in a legendary time and place ruled by magic—and in the body of the mythical mermaid Undine. But danger lurks in the water, ready to swallow CC whole. Taking pity on her, the Goddess Gaea turns CC into a damsel so that she might seek shelter on land. When a dashing knight comes to CC’s rescue, instead of falling for this dream-come-true, she aches for the sea and the darkly sexy merman who’s stolen her heart…
