SUMMARY
Coveting the enemy is simply to die for.

Claudia Salizar has given blood, sweat and tears to the tenuous armistice between the factions that inhabit St. Louis. She rules the north side with an iron fist, striving to keep the peace between vampires, werewolves and humans no matter the cost. Stumbling across two mysterious intruders who may jeopardize everything she's worked for is no small inconvenience.

The pair need safe passage out of the vampire quarter and they're willing to negotiate. Claudia is immediately drawn to Silver, a human with an unusually delectable scent whose tantalizing touch brings her to the height of ecstasy. His taciturn companion is harder to crack, but Claudia has met her fair share of werewolves and giving herself to Lucan awakens desires she has too long suppressed.

Justice is soon the furthest thing from Claudia's mind, but colluding with outsiders can have unforeseen ramifications. It's not long before running Silver and Lucan out of town seems like the only sensible option. Time for Claudia to decide what she values more—her hard-won reputation or the two men in her bed?

Publisher's Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Wild After Dark anthology by Totally Bound Publishing.

Claudia Salizar rules the north side with an iron fist striving to keep the peace between vampires, werewolves and humans but two mysterious intruders jeopardize everything she's worked for in this riveting paranormal romance.

Justice is soon the furthest thing from Claudia's mind as she finds herself drawn to Silver and Lucan, and the reader can't help but get drawn into the intrigue when unforeseen ramifications has Claudia thinking running Silver and Lucan out of town might be the only sensible solution. The chemistry sizzles from every page with some red hot sex scenes. The fast paced, smooth flowing plot captures readers with suspense, excitement and romance while the intriguing events draw the reader in and refuse to let go.

For me the story is really too short because it seems like the world the author created had some interesting possibilities and would be something that I could really sink my teeth into but it was over before I could do so, although it was certainly an enjoyable quickie.
