New Release In Fantasy Romance: Saunders’ Choice By Gina Briganti – Excerpt #2


Continued from excerpt #1

Cassidy looked exactly the way she wanted to look.  As did Velvet.  As did the club she performed in.  It was the perfection of everything in her life that had developed Velvet’s sense of humor to begin with.  She needed a break from the sameness of perfection.

“Cassidy,” she sang back in answer, turning her bubbles into kissing lips that smacked Cassidy on the cheek when they reached her.  They made a smacking sound for the kiss, and then popped, returning to the water.

“They liked you.” Cassidy leaned back in the purple chair, releasing smoky tendrils from her lungs and her cigarette while she spoke.

“They did like me,” Velvet agreed.  “My new set about the dangers of washing and styling your hair in a whirlpool went over well with the females.”


She lives life below the waves. What will a man sacrifice to discover it’s not a dream?

Mermaid Velvet has always had a special fascination with the World. And studying its two-legged humans has given the aspiring comedian unique skills to make her audiences laugh. But when she saves a human who believes he’s drowning, she’s stunned by the magic that flows between them.

Saunders is trapped between two realities with no memory of his past. Lost in a strange, underwater domain, he comes face-to-face with an alluring goddess of the sea. When he disappears from her realm, he’s desperate to reunite with the entrancing beauty.

As Velvet continues to bring Saunders out of the darkness, her love for him grows along with her fear that his next disappearance might be his last. And as his memories slowly return, Saunders must decide if he’s willing to leave the World permanently for a chance to be with the mermaid he desires.

Can Velvet and Saunders overcome his terrible fate and sink into each other’s perfect arms?

Saunders’ Choice is a standalone novella in the enchanting Natural Gifts fantasy romance series. If you like irresistible attraction, mystery, and love against the odds, then you’ll adore Gina Briganti’s tale of the deep.

Velvet had to smile at Cassidy’s mimicry of 1950’s television where the characters were in black and white, with cigarette in hand, and an evening cocktail on the table in front of them.  She had styled her hair, and colored it, to match Lucy Ricardo’s ravishing red in the I love Lucy show.  Her tail matched.  She was more modest than Velvet, too, because she wore black shells to cover her breasts.

Saunders’ Choice is Available from most online booksellers through this UBL:
