A Naiad's Heart (Naiad Romance #2) by Gigi Rivers

A Naiad's Heart promises to work as a standalone and delivers that along with a lot of sweetness.

From the blurb:

An eager human virgin. An experienced naiad with no desire to settle.

An mm fantasy romance.

Gabriel lives a quiet existence as a seaweed farmer in a small seaside village. But his life is turned upside down when a naiad rescues him from drowning during a storm. Now Gabriel returns to his simple life in his village, but he is obsessed with the naiad, whose wild green hair; toned, naked body; and regal features consume his every fantasy. Gabriel must see the naiad again.

The naiad, Alke, is an adventurer with no desire to settle. He is happy to swim wherever the tide takes him and have sex with whomever he meets. Then a human turns up searching for him. A virgin who stares at him with complete adoration and desire in his pretty hazel eyes. Who is Alke to resist?

It starts out as sex. It’s meant to be temporary. Just some fun. But as they get to know each other, feelings grow. Can Alke admit that he wants more? And is Gabriel willing to wait for Alke to figure it out?

Jacquie's Review:

I read A Naiad's Heart as a standalone and found it worked like that. I'm tempted to go back and read the first book now and the teaser of the third sounds great.

A Naiad's Heart is a really cute and sweet tale of first time love.

Gabriel goes looking for Alke after their first chance meeting and reconnects with his eldest brother who is living on Naiad Island.

There's some steam and a whole lot of sweetness as Alke denies his feelings and Gabriel learns to go for what he wants
