RecomMondaytion: Crosscurrents by D.B. Sieders

My weekly Romance Audiobook Recommendation

Welcome back to the RecomMondaytion! This week with absolutely awesome Fantasy Romance.


Crosscurrents by D.B. Sieders

This week’s recomMondaytion is actually an ARC review. D.B. Sieders was so kind to give me a free copy of this audiobook.

I absolutely loved the first part in this series, Lorelei’s Lyric. But I wasn’t quite sure what I could expect from the second part because Ilsa wasn’t the most likable person in book 1. Turns out, I loved this story at least as much as book 1!


Firstly, Stefanie Kay’s narration was absolutely fantastic again. She has a great array of different voices and accents. It’s easy to differentiate between characters and she kept me absolutely captivated.


As for the storyline, I really liked how the events from book 1 had bigger consequences that led to the events in book 2. It was actually quite suspenseful! While this book would work as a stand-alone (everything is well explained), it also has a solid series-feeling to it. And I loved how D.B. Sieders laid the groundwork for many more parts. I’m definitely looking forward to more elemental guardians, especially to more Bruce!

Ilsa became a very likable and enjoyable character in this book and I crushed hard on Paul. He’s so thoroughly great!

This is definitely a credit-worthy series for me and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Fantasy Romance or Paranormal Romance.

Publisher’s Summary

No one believes Ilsa is worthy of ruling the Rhine River Kingdom, including Ilsa.

Sure, she wields plenty of mermaid magic and has a winning personality, but responsibility? Not her thing.

So instead of embracing her role as river royalty, Ilsa opts to extend her holiday in the New World. Frolicking with mortals is her M.O. – until she answers a distress call from an endangered species in the waters near Chattanooga. After her close encounter with a motorboat threatens to expose the world of elemental guardians, Ilsa partners with biologist and
unlikely ally, Paul Pulaski, to cover her tail.  

Worlds collide and sparks ignite between Princess Ilsa and her diamond-in-the-rough mortal, Paul. But can they survive monster hunters, a rival scientist with a grudge, and a dark force that could destroy mortal and elemental alike?

    1. I have a post planned on how to best get started with audiobooks since it’s mostly the same things people struggle with when trying to get into listening. But the ebooks of this series are great too 😉
