Sandra Paul's contribution to A Tale of the Sea series, CAUGHT BY SURPRISE (4) features Saegar, merman brother of Kai, Phoebe, and Thelassia. Imprisoned, Saegar wants nothing more than to return to Pacifica and his family. But when he falls in love with Elizabeth Livingstone, can he give up his life in the sea forever? Though it has fun characters and a very nice romance, CAUGHT BY SURPRISE is missing that extra zing that would make it a keeper.
