On the one hand we have Olivia and James, happily married for twenty-odd years and still hot for each other. On the other hand we have newly-crowned king of the wereseals, Anso, and his life-long friend and fuck-buddy, Ty. Anso and Olivia turn out to be destined blood mates, which could be tricky, or it could be an excuse for some MAJORLY HOT BOY-GIRL, BOY-BOY, BOY-BOY-GIRL, BOY-BOY-BOY-GIRL ACTION. Which it totally is. In addition to all the sexing, Emma Holly is really good at writing non-grunting, not-quite-Alpha males. These guys are smart, handsome, thoughtful and bisexual--and two of them can turn into seals. The story is set in a magical undersea pocket city that is very appealing, and there are some political machinations and cute little dragons and it's all good. Recommended.
