Oceanic Snark

I love Marie Sexton’s Saturday Snark. I almost always end up adding something to my TBR list, and I always get a good snicker or four. My snark this week is from Longfellow’s Lovers, a m/f/m menage releasing from Ellora’s Cave on September 5th. Here’s the blurb:

Ariana Longfellow, an Historian whose job it is to record the narratives of the various supernatural species that inhabit the world, retreats to a sunny Australian beach for a summer holiday. But she’s not alone. There on the beach is the most amazingly gorgeous male she’s ever seen. And he has a tail! When another dark ocean god joins him in a cloud of ocean scent and spice, what can Ari do but surrender all she is?

Ky and Jaxon are warriors among the ocean dwellers, mermen dedicated to protecting their species from detection by humanity. When an injured Jaxon washes up on Ari’s beach, he and Ky are stunned when she triggers the mating scent, the signal to all merkin that they’ve found their true mate. The first snag—she’s a human. To add insult to injury—she’s a Longfellow. And all three of them must choose either duty to their own, or the love and passion shared between mates.

In this week’s snark, merman Jaxon has just regained consciousness after a close encounter with a Ski-Doo. Rather than finding his nest-brother Ky anxiously trying to wake him, he finds Ky on the verge of the mother of all hummers at the hands, er, lips of a luscious Longfellow Historian. Instead of giving Ky the chance to tear him a new one for getting too close to the shore, Jax goes on the offensive:

“I know,” he continued. “I was too close to the shore. I need to stay farther away from the humans. I’m going to expose us all, and Dad’ll have a whale.” His words had the sound of an often-repeated argument. “But,” he added, shaking a finger at the dark god who continued to hold her trapped, inches from his gently swaying arousal, “I’m not the one about to shove my…” he sent her an apologetic smile that almost had her coming then and there, “throbbing manhood into the nearest luscious little human mouth I found.”

Longfellow’s Lovers will be available  HERE Wednesday, September 5th. And don’t forget to check out Marie Sexton’s blog for much more snark!



  1. Mermen, huh? Might have to give this one a look see…

    • Hope you’ll like it. Ky and Jax are all kinds of hot. And snarky. And hot… lol.

  2. Oh, I love merfolk! Men especially. And the human complicating things is perfect, because that’s what we humans do best! 😀

  3. Oceanic Snark! Gotta love it!

  4. Thanks so much for joining in!

    • I’m totally geeked to be part of the party. Like I said, Saturday Snark is one of my favorite. Things. Ever.

  5. Just before we wrote it, Sierra read a merman story where the guy kept his, er, *equipment* in a pouch, sorta like a sea-dwelling kangaroo. We immediately were determined to write merman sex *sans* pouch! So *our* mermen just have color coordinated…equipment, lol. It was SO much fun to write. I hope that comes through to the reader.
