When their relationship is discovered, Kyle is the one to pay the price. Banished from the oceans, he seeks shelter in England and finds a new love with human, Jake Seabrook.
For Jake, Kyle is the chance to move on from the crush he has on his straight best friend. The strange man he found naked on the beach seems to fit into his life with ease. If only Kyle weren't keeping secrets from him, Jake could see them having a future together.
Things are not what they seem for either of the men and when Kyle discovers the truth about Finn, he knows he must return to Atlantis.
Three men, a tangled relationship, and one chance for happiness—if they can trust enough to take it.

About the Character

Name: Kyle
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean
Profession: Bodyguard
Ethnicity/Species (if not human): Merman
Describe his/her body build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars:
Kyle is quite pale since he spends the majority of his time under the water and away from the rays of the sun. He has brown hair which is cropped short. He has found having long hair tends to get in the way when you live underwater. His eyes are a silvery blue and an exact match in colour to his tail and fins. The constant swimming has given him excellent upper body strength. From the waist up he has a typical swimmer's build. On land he is fully human and stands a little under six feet tall, not that measurements mean much in the ocean.
Who is the significant other in your character's life?
Kyle is torn between two different men. Prince Finn, heir to the throne of the sunken city of Atlantis, is a merman like Kyle and Jake Seabrook is a human living in England.
How does your hero dress?
Naked is the preferred mode of dress for Kyle, though he is learning that being out and about in England does require him to be covered up to a certain extent. He dresses under protest.
What is your character's viewpoint on wealth? Not necessary, nice to have, important, obtain at all costs?
Kyle has very little concept of money since it isn't used under the ocean. On land he is actually very wealthy, although he didn't realize it at first. The longer he stays on land, the more he will have to get used to things like money, but thankfully for him the funds he has are enough that he can live comfortably for the rest of his life, even if he never does learn the value of money. I think he will because he's a pretty fast learner.
Is he close to family?
Kyle looks up to his father and hope to follow in his footsteps as the leader of the clan. He is close to his mother and keeps a watchful eye over his younger sister. Making the right choices for his family is of paramount consideration for Kyle, even at the cost of his own happiness.
If someone from your character's past showed up, who would he most want it to be, and why?
Kyle would most like to see his mother, Maurissa. The oceans are dangerous places and although he understands her decision to swim away from the safety of Atlantis, he would like to know she is well.
Can your hero keep a secret? If not, why not? If yes, why?
Kyle isn't generally a secretive person, but there is one secret which he can keep very well, that of being a merman. Of course there are sometimes circumstances where his secret is revealed because Kyle is the sort of person who will do the right thing even if it means revealing what he is.
What is your character's biggest need at the beginning of the story?
After a devastating shark attack on his nomadic community Kyle's biggest need becomes finding a safe haven for his people. Even if it means giving up any chance of love.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
I wish she hadn't told everyone I'm a merman, but thankfully she has done it in a way that it makes me appear as only a character in a work of fiction.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
My writer expected me to sit around pining over Finn when he broke my heart. She definitely didn't expect me to fall for someone else.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
I want her to write my first lover, Dax's story. Although we parted on good terms I want to know that he is well and has found someone to love. Unfortunately she tells me that although she is keeping tabs on Dax, his story isn't the next one.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
Although he scares me by what he can do, I would like to know more about Caspian. I'm just not sure he is the type to get all loved up with someone like the rest of us. He's not exactly sociable.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your writer?
I know my story isn't over yet, but could you at least give me a hint about what is to come?
