Their families are sworn enemies…
When Kiernan and Melina spent one passionate night together a year ago, they never thought that it would change their lives forever. While the attraction was undeniable, wolf shifter Melina Rodriguez knows it takes more than passion to combat a century of family animosity—even if she can’t manage to get dark, handsome Kiernan out of her head.
But he won’t let her go.
After a year of relentlessly pursuing the one woman he shouldn’t want, vampire Kiernan has finally convinced sweet, passionate Melina to give him one more chance. When their hot Miami night of flirtation is violently interrupted, he has to convince her to put her life in his hands. With an unknown enemy targeting her and their own families against their union, he knows he’ll have to show her that he’ll do anything to keep her safe. And he doesn’t care who gets in his way.

What’s not to like about a hot, sassy, fun read about a vampire and the sexy she-wolf who grabs his attention and ultimately his heart. Enemy Mine is the perfect late night read to carry you into dreamland wishing for your very own hot-as-hell vampire to keep you on your toes. I really enjoyed reading Melina and Kiernan’s story and seeing them find a way to get past centuries of family drama and prejudice to find a way to share their true love. Kiernan was definitely a sexy male that had his heart set on the she-wolf that ran from his bed after a hot night almost a year ago. Once he discovered her identity it wasn’t hard for him to understand why she ran, but he was just as determined to prove to her that he was the male for her. His tenacity and willingness to do whatever it takes to keep his woman and make her happy made him the best kind of hero in my opinion. I also enjoyed seeing him in action kicking butt and taking names when needed. Melina knows there are a lot of reasons not to take Kiernan back to her bed, and certainly even more not to lose her heart to him, but there is just no stopping the love between them. She has a strong will and can stand up for the important things in life, even if it means making her family accept that times are changing and they need to let go of the past difficulties they’ve had with Kiernan’s Clan. The chemistry between Melina and Kiernan is off the chart of course, but the fun they obviously have together and the way they bring each other out of the sometimes dark lives a vampire and shifter can find themselves in is what made their story great. I am hoping to maybe have other stories about this group of Vampires and wolves because there were certainly some interesting characters. Overall a great standalone novella with hints of favorite characters from the Darkness series and I hopefully we get more about these folks soon.
