Immersed (Adventure One in the Clockwork Siren Series)
WHAT IF LOVE TURNED YOU INTO A MONSTER?
Melusine Doré slays monsters for a living. The grim and gruesome don’t frighten her; she can take on a cyclops or a three-tailed dragon without even breaking a sweat. But falling in love? Falling in love terrifies her. Because love has the power to reveal a secret dark and dangerous enough to completely shatter her world.
Submerged (Adventure Two in the Clockwork Siren Series)
WHAT IF EVERYTHING YOU KNEW ABOUT YOURSELF WAS A LIE?
When Melusine and Levi go hunt a beast down South, Melusine’s deepest fear becomes a reality as she finds herself in exactly the place where all her troubles began: home. There, Melusine must face the dark secrets and lies of her family’s past—and the very real possibility that she is more monster than maiden.

Levi goes missing and Melusine must tap into all her unusual talents to find and rescue her lover. This time though, Melusine won't be the deadliest fish in the sea.

Surfaced (The Clockwork Siren Series #3)
Never once did a sliver of doubt enter my mind; from the very first page of the very first book, I just knew that I was going to love this series. Melusine Doré and Levi Cannon, probably my new favorite literary couple, are faced over and over with fierce monsters and the nefarious villain, Sir Edwin Aldridge. Seriously, I can’t help but envision him twisting his mustache as he works out a new plan to trap Melusine. And when his plans invariably fall apart, I hear a small voice whisper, “Drat! Foiled again!” I halfway expected him to tie her to the railway tracks. Such a classic villain.
Though the stories are not long, they’re the perfect length. The stories never lag, and they’re filled with action and just a pinch of romance. Despite the death, torture, pain, and tears that make an appearance through the pages, never once did the books cross a line. They remained entirely clean. The chemistry between Melusine and Levi is steamy, though never lewd, never graphic. Their ‘swears’ are all outdated and harmless to our modern-day sensibilities.
Now, there’s just one small problem… is this the end? Will I be forced to live out my days without another of Melusine’s adventures? In my eyes, the series is prime for any number of story lines. Please? In the meanwhile, I will just have to make my way through the rest of Katie Hayoz’s books. In me, she has earned a devoted fan.
