The Tide of the Mermaid Tears

Ember Taffee lives with her mother and sister in a cottage by the sea. She loves to walk along the ocean, especially in the morning and evening, and search for treasures in the sand. Some of her very favorite treasures are Mermaid Tears, or Sea Glass. Glass that's been in the sea so long, it's smoothed and shaped like a perfect tear. One morning, just as she's about to give up her treasure hunting, she finds five beautiful Mermaid tears, and then she finds a man washed up on the beach. This is no ordinary man, he's extraordinarily handsome, so much so that Ember pretends to herself that he's a present for her from  Neptune himself. The man needs help, so Ember helps him to her cottage so that her mother can care for the man. Ridge West has some secrets that he's not willing to share with the helpful Taffee family, simply to protect them from any harm that they might share for helping him. But soon he falls deeply in love with Ember. Little does he know that she's falling for him as well. But they must face his past and his future together before they are to live happily ever after. I enjoyed this story. This one like most of the others, is a fairly quick read. It's clean, I don't think there were any swear words in this one like there have been in others and the hero is an old fashioned kind of guy.
