Summary

If Lorelei sings, someone will die. 

Her beautiful voice once cost a life. Still, music is her passion. What's a mermaid to do? Run off and live vicariously through mortal musicians! 

Unfortunately, gorgeous rocker Vance Idol almost succumbs to her siren call after his show in Nashville. Not that Vance cares - not since his girlfriend's fatal overdose left him with a supersized death wish. Lorelei makes it her mission to undo the damage and help this talented and charismatic man on the eve of his band's big break. 

But saving a mortal man is a dangerous proposition. Lorelei could far too easily lose her heart, and quite possibly her immortality, during her American holiday. Bad boy Vance might be worth the risk.  

Can their love survive his attitude, her fins, and an evil pixie with a grudge against them both?  

"Lorelei's Lyric is brilliantly clever with its unique blend of Southern humor and poignant mermaid mythology. Modern-day siren, Lorelei, traveling to The Music City of Nashville? One helluva great premise that hooked me at page one! I fell in love with this shape-shifting siren and her romance with aspiring rocker Vance Idol. One of those rare books that will have you laughing and sighing and crying, touching your heart just as great music touches your soul. A must-read! (Debbie Herbert, USA Today best-selling author of the Dark Seas series - Siren's Secret, Siren's Treasure, and Siren's Call)  

"Lorelei's Lyric made me swoon! A perfect blend of mermaid magic and rock-star grit, Sieders' charming, irresistibly sexy tale gives us a love story to believe in. I can't wait to read more!" (Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of Requiem for the Devil, the WVMP Radio series, and the Shade Trilogy)

Mermaids!

First and foremost, Mermaids! I love books with mermaids in them! This book does have some heavy underlying material, for example, Vance's struggle with addiction. It is laced with a messages of overcoming one's demons, fighting for what you love, and facing your fears (even if they are your mother). Additionally, there is the challenge of the ancient curse that Lorelei must overcome. I loved Vance and Lorelei as characters and I especially enjoyed listening as their love for each other grew. Although, there were a few instances where I actually started to think that this wasn't going to be a happily ever after for Vance and Lorelei. I think the author did a pretty good job keeping the story somewhat realistic outside of the obviously paranormal aspects. The author also did a great developing the characters and had a pretty good plot with some steamy scenes. There were tiny instances where the story dragged a smidge, but not too much. The narrator did a fabulous job on this performance! I think she was able to perfectly depict the gravity of some of the heavier aspects of the novel in the inflection of her voice. She was also able to accentuate the lighter, more exciting, and romantic parts. The narrator made it easy to distinguish between characters via voice association and she kept her voice consistent with each designated character throughout; in addition, she kept the speed of her narration consistent. Overall, I enjoyed this somewhat heavy hearted romance. I look forward to more novels by the author and future performances by this narrator. I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Original Paranormal Romance

This was my first D.B. Sieder's book. This is the first book in the Southern Elemental Guardians Series. This was a good start to the Series. The story was interesting, with great characters, and an intriguing storyline filled with mystery. This paranormal romance was original and emotional. I loved the Epilogue. Stefanie Kay was a new narrator to me. Overall, the narration was well done, but a little distracting to me, maybe because of the intonation for some voices. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Lorelei's Lyric

I'm a reader that loves to read books that step outside of their genre's comfort zone. Lorelei's Lyric is typical in some ways, but in other ways, it is different. Especially having a hero who is a drug addict and emotionally wounded, which gave the story depth and kept me interested in the lives of Lorelei and Vance. It also made me want to read the other books in this series. I did not think the narration was good, but it was not bad. I do not feel that the narrator was able to convey each character's personality in a way that gave them their own uniqueness. Overall, I recommend this audiobook. I feel it will give the reader a mini mental vacation. In other words, it will relax you and cause you to fantasize about Loreli's world.

Love Lorelei’s Lyric!

I very much enjoyed listening to this!!! Vincent seems so lost and alone in the beginning.. I felt bad for him. I was drawn into the story of these two very quickly and had a hard time stopping when I needed to do something else!!! I love the way it all played out and that they loved each other through everything!! Stephanie Kay does a wonderful job with the narration and her voice is so smooth and easy to listen to!

Wonderful story, great narration!

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review :-) This story has real depth, so let’s go bit by bit: #1 The mermaid myths: D.B. Sieders more than did her homework, she’s clearly a total mermaid-fan. I even learned some new things (have you heard of a Melusine before?). And I loved how she used those old myths and fairy tales and wove them into the background stories of her characters. #2 Addiction: As hinted at in the publisher’s summary, Vance, our hero, doesn’t only have vices but an actual problem. D.B. Sieders treats this with a lot of care and doesn’t fall into the trap of just letting love fix such a serious personal problem. I really liked how realistic she made Vance’s struggles and how she made appropriate space for this in a fantasy novel. #3 Complex characters: Both Lorelei and Vance are great protagonists, strong yet vulnerable. Both are very likable and wouldn’t fit into any of the usual cut-outs. Vance is so broken yet so reflected and he makes a real effort, not only for Lorelei but also for himself. And I could truly empathize with Lorelei’s insecurities and struggles. Now, on to the narration! I was surprised to see that this is the first Audible audiobook by Stefanie Kay. I did not expect that because this was a great narration. The production is absolutely professional and top-notch both in regard to her voice acting as well as the sound quality and clarity. I like Stefanie Kay’s voices, she does really well with the males ones and with the accents. Her intonations were interesting and captivating and this will definitely be a re-read for me. Lastly, I want to say that I really digged the magical condom. And I’m looking forward to listening to the rest of the series, especially Bruce’s story!

pretty good start

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This was a pretty cool book. I found I rather quite enjoyed it. I enjoyed the author's world building and characters. I thought they were interesting and the author did a good job of balancing the romance stuff with the paranormal. The narrator did a good job of keeping the story moving and engaging. All in all, this is a series I think I will enjoy.
