January Starts Sizzling with Romances by Judi Fennell

The Tritone Trilogy
by Judi Fennell

Let's Start January Sizzling with Romances by Judi Fennell!

Judi Fennell delivers a romp in the ocean with 3 gorgeous guys and 3 fun stories- All part of the Tritone Trilogy! If you'd like to try a little something different, Judi Fennell has got you covered! A Romantic comedy starring men from under the sea, Judi Fennell has created a wonderful world with rich characters. In Over Her Head is the first book in the series. We meet Reel Tritone who is a Mer and "is the rebellious royal second son of the ruler of a vast undersea kingdom (think of Atlantis) , and he's always been fascinated by humans"... and one human in particular- Erica Peck. Beautiful, water weary and his destiny. One sticky issue though- he is Mer and she is human... They eventually embark on a madcap adventure to recover some stolen treasure, after he saves her from a watery grave... Wild Blue Under is the second book in the series. Rod Tritone is gorgeous, going to inherit the Mer Kingdom and needs to fulfill his destiny with a woman who is "terrified of water". Valerie Dumere doesn't know it yet, but she isn't quite all human. She is part Mer due to a discrete love affair between a human and Mer. Now Rod must convince Valerie of who she is to save his world... Catch of a Lifetime is the final book in the series due to be released in February of this year. Meet Angel Tritone, she’s on a mission to save the planet… "Mermaid Angel Tritone has been researching humans from afar, hoping to find a way to convince them to stop polluting. When she jumps into a boat to escape a shark attack, it’s her chance to pursue her mission, but she has to keep her identity a total secret… When he finds out what she really is, they’re both in mortal danger… For Logan Hardington, finding a beautiful woman on his boat is surely not a problem—until he discovers she’s a mermaid, and suddenly his life is on the line…"

I read the first two books in the series and was simple taken by the fun, believable world of the Mer Kingdom. All the excitement doesn't take place in the water though, the Mer are able to "alter" themselves to be able to come above water. Fun, delicious and a great read, the Tritone Trilogy is refreshing and light. Judi Fennell's writing is terrific! If you'd like to try something a little different, dive into Judi Fennell's watery romances! It'll leave a smile on your face! Want to learn more about Judi Fennell? Check out her Website.

Ah, thanks for such a lovely post about my series. I'm so glad you've enjoyed them. I had a blast writing these stories and hope to revisit the world after my next series (about genies) that comes out beginning Jan 2011.

Hope you enjoy Logan and Angel's story!

All the best,

I too was struck by the refreshingly witty tone of Judi Fennell's first two books. And of course, I'm impatiently waiting for the third to be released.

Hoping Logan lives up to Rod and Reel. :)

Judi's books are just an out and out blast! And very sexy! You know, sometimes the perfect time for a beach read book is not in the middle of summer, but in the cold dead of winter when you can really appreciate a good laugh, a hot hero, and those lovely blue waters!
