LaMia Enlil has done some pretty reprehensible things in her long life, including killing Mateo Diaz’s parents and older brother. Exiled by her grandmother for her belief that she should be able to enslave humans, as well as attack and drain them until death if she chooses, Mia, while realistic about her situation, begins having second thoughts after capturing Mateo.

Mateo Diaz is a young architect whose entire family was wiped out by Mia. He hates her with a passion and longs for vengeance. Or does he?

When Mia captures Mateo just before his best friend Alex recruits him into Emsharra’s harvesting program, everything changes for both of them. While Mia would like to remain hard-hearted where Mateo is concerned, she finds herself longing for his forgiveness. Mateo wants to hate her, but as they spend more time together, his gift of empathy kicks in and he begins feeling her emotions. It is not long before their relationship becomes very hot. But someone else has plans for Mia and those plans could mean the destruction of Mia and Mateo’s fragile truce, not to mention their lives.

This is one hot tamale of a good story! At first, I thought it would not be realistic, for how could he love the murderess of his family, but I was pleasantly surprised. The author did an excellent job of portraying Mia in a realistic fashion so that the reader is able to understand and even relate to her motives. The love scenes are scorching, yet sensual and loving at the same time. The world building is creative and easy to grasp, which made the book that much more enjoyable. This is the first book of Ms. McKeever’s I’ve had the pleasure to read; it will certainly not be the last!
