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.
Author note: This novella was originally published elsewhere and is an updated and lightly re-edited version.
Oh my gosh, Enemy Mine is the Romeo and Juliet of the PNR world. He’s a vampire, she’s a werewolf. Her brother killed his brother. They have a super HOT one night stand without really knowing who they are. Kiernan discovers her identity and decides to pursue her. She is having NONE of it. Then the danger starts! Someone is trying to kidnap Melina and use her healing ability (and kill her in the process). Kiernan is not about to let that happen. Swoon!
So, Enemy Mine is short and to the point. There is no ‘world building’ or anything like that. Its Vampire meets Werewolf enemy but falls in love anyway. The writing is great-descriptive without being pedantic, filled with action, and the characters are believable even though the story is so short!
