Publisher's Summary

When it comes to finding a mate, should something so important be left to technology?

Bound by duty and a contract between Trilyn and Earth, even a prince has to learn his place. But when it comes to matters of the heart, sometimes there are no rules.

There’s nothing romantic about choosing your mate with the help of technology, and there’s nothing Prince Darbnix's less interested in than using a scanner to find his true love. But he’s also tired of fighting with his older brother about them. A human plot almost tricked the eldest Trilyn prince into marrying the wrong woman, but Darbnix has other plans. He’ll go through the motions of the grand parties, to please his brother, but his heart won’t be in it. 

When the pact between the Trilyn and Earth was solidified, Dr. Rose Rand decided that the future of her veterinary career lay in exo-livestock, and the care and healing of alien creatures fascinated her. But when she was called upon to examine a royal pet, she never imagined that she would be falling in love with a Trilyn prince intent on giving up his search for a compatible bride. 

When Prince Darbnix’s match is found in a Southern beauty queen, someone he never would have chosen for his bride, his suspicions flare. Can he and Rose discover the truth behind the manipulation of the compatibility scanners and reach their own happily-ever-after? Or will Darbnix have to turn aside his love for Rose and follow his brother’s command?

Alien Prince's Mermaid is the second book in the Trilyn Alien Fairy Tales series. This is a science-fiction romance story featuring a compassionate human female and a dominant alien prince in search of his true love. Each book in this pause-resisting science-fiction series has no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed happy ending!

Fun Listen!

This is the second book in the Trilyn Alien Fairy Tales Series, a sweet Sci-Fi Aliens Romance. I loved the story of Darbnix and Rose and I loved their HEA and the Epilogue. The narration is well done. Chase Ripley has a great voice, easy to understand. This was a fun listen.

I LIKED IT!

I enjoyed it! The narration was good. It will keep you entertained. This author did a good job with the characters. This was not my first book by this author, I read the first book (Alien Prince Charming) and enjoyed it as well. I look forward to reading more of her books.

Drivel

I won’t be buying anymore in this series probably not from this author either there is no sublitlity. The only thing missing is an actual guy in a cape twirling his mustache. It is totally campy and therefore boring

No Mermaids?

This is the second book in the series but can be listened to as a standalone. I listened to the first one, so I was already familiar with the world. I don't understand why it is called the Prince's Mermaid, there are no mermaids anywhere; so, the title is misleading. The characters were interesting and likeable, I could relate to the Prince's love for his pet. I liked this story too, however, the plot was very similar to the first one so it is missing some originality that the first one had. Plus I was looking forward to the mermaids. The author does a good job of developing these characters and wrapping things up nicely.

I thought the narrator did a good job on this seemingly repeat performance. I would have liked a little bit more voice differentiation between the characters; otherwise, I have no complaints.

Good once it gets going

Coming into this book without having read Book 1, I was initially a little confused about who the characters were in the alien prince line, but luckily that was short lived. The author does a good job of reintroducing the characters and their importance to the story so you aren't guessing very long. Darbnix and Rose are likable and interesting. Slith, a pet lizard, is probably the most entertaining character in the book. Like many other reviewers have mentioned, the mermaid thing is confusing as there is no mermaid. It was enjoyable listen. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Mermaid?

What an interesting story. Not sure about the mermaid, maybe she got cut out or perhaps it was a play on words. Like all love stories there are ups and downs. This is the third time I am trying to place this review. I enjoyed it very much. I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest review.

A fun continuation of the series...........

Alien Prince's Mermaid is the second book in this fantasy romance series, and I read the first book in the series, but I think the author does a good job of making this book a standalone. The basic premise of the series is that humanoid aliens traveled to Earth and made a pact with the Earth governments to find eligible mates for their princes. There is a lack of females on the princes' planets, the reproduction rates are low, and the princes must mate with their biological ideal in order for the union to produce children. The more scientifically advanced aliens have come up with a scanner that scans women to determine their compatibility with each prince. Unfortunately, sneaky humans and aliens can always find a way to mess with science, and that is what happens in this story.

The Alien Prince's Mermaid follows Prince Darbnix's attempt to find his perfect mate. He adamantly protests the use of the scanner and wants to find his true match without the use of the scanner but by just falling in love the old fashioned way. He is very shy and introverted and prefers the company of animals over people, so the entire process of socializing to find a mate is excruciating for him. When his favorite pet (and best friend) falls ill, Darbnix hires the veternary services of Dr. Rose Rand, and these two form an instant connection. Thus begins their adventure towards falling in love, overcoming the machinations of a scheming, greedy woman bent on marrying an alien prince, and being allowed to be each other's mates regardless of any scanner readings.

Chase Ripley does a good job with the narration. My only complaint is that he doesn't differentiate at all between Darbnix and Rose. This story is told as a duel narration with alternating points of view for each chapter. Without any differentiation in voice for each, I kept getting lost as to whether Rose or Darbnix was speaking.

Alien Princes Must Find Human Brides, Genetic Matches

The second story in a series, I missed the first book but it wasn’t a problem understanding the story. The second prince is in a floating ship over Topeka Kansas..he reigns over a agricultural continent on his planet and has ab affinity for animals.
A favored pet becomes ill, he meets a veterinarian, Rose, and falls...however he must marry a females who sets off a genetic matching device....well people have been messing with these devices and he is matched with someone else.
The story is ok, entertaining and some lines a bit over the top, but light entertainment..also some action, evil people (what happens to one in particular was interesting).
The narrator did a nice job..kept the story going along well.

I don’t think that word means what you think it means...

Well...although this is s cute story and I liked the first book But I am unclear as to whether this book was actually edited...by someone who understands the English language. There are lots of words the author uses that aren’t really used correctly, lots of repeat descriptor words and a general issue with just basic grammar. I’m not super picky about grammar but it got to the point that I was just guessing as to the context of conversations and descriptions of events. There were grammar errors in pretty much every sentence so I kinda just gave up on the book. Will be asking for a refund, I just can’t take it any more.

The story is also pretty slow and goes nowhere fast. If I could manage to listen to more of this I would like to know what happens in the story, but honestly, it’s like reading a high school essay all marked up with red pen in need of serious editing and the use of a dictionary.
