Looking for a sizzling f/f mermaid romance read? Here are the top 5 sapphic fantasy books about mermaids!
On an island where dangerous mermaids lure men to their deaths, warrior girls are sent to slay them. The problem: one of the warrior girls falls in love with the mermaid she was sent to kill. Not only is Ice Massacre the first in a trilogy, but it’s also a webcomic/graphic novel!
A romance between a mermaid and a viking princess?! Yes please! Everything about this premise screams to me—it’s like The Little Mermaid meets Norse mythology, and there’s a lesbian romance. Author Julia Ember is 3 for 3 with this one.
What happens when a disgraced princess captures a mermaid? We get an engrossing enemies-to-lovers romance! Sign me up for anything enemies-to-lovers, especially in a fantasy setting. The captor/captive dynamic makes this love story by S.D. Simper especially interesting.
Technically this is a pirate romance, but there are mermaids! This book by Maggie Tokuda-Hall has excellent nonbinary and genderfluid representation, and it’s pretty dark, if you’re into a gritty YA Fantasy!
Consider this Ann Claycomb story The Little Mermaid meets The Phantom of the Opera. Another winning combination. The romance is between opera singers, with the fantasy/mermaid elements unraveling throughout.
