Book I Covet: Ripple by Mandy Hubbard

Why I covet this book: I love mermaid stories and have read quite a few. But I haven't read one about a siren or one that sounds as dark and romantic Ripple sounds from the blurb.

I also love the cover--so much drama in the body language in both models and I love the gathering storm in the background. It's a perfect fit to the blurb.

rippleRipple by Mandy Hubbard (out July 21, 2011)
Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. Each day she goes to school like a normal teenager, and each night she must swim, or the pain will be unbearable. She is a siren - a deadly mermaid destined to lure men to their watery deaths. After a terrible tragedy, Lexi shut herself off from the world, vowing to protect the ones she loves. But she soon finds herself caught between a new boy at school who may have the power to melt her icy exterior, and a handsome water spirit who says he can break Lexi's curse if she gives up everything else. Lexi is faced with the hardest decision she’s ever had to make: the life she's always longed for - or the love she can't live without?

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series I am going to be doing here.
It will feature books I am very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is similar to the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. However, some of the books may already be published and others may still be in pre-order. I will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available.
