Summary from the publisher:
Years ago, with the healing abilities afforded by her blend of Aztec and extraterrestrial blood, Liz was free to do as she wished. Now she is trapped in a blood feud, forced to heal one of her clan’s most dangerous rivals so they can exploit his gift of prophecy.
As she drapes her nude body over his, the rush of his returning strength overwhelms her, and his stunningly sensual caress pushes her to her sexual limit.
Zeke Neekoma never expected to hunger for a woman he’s supposed to hate, but now that he’s tasted her, he has no intention of denying himself the pleasure of her body—or of kidnapping his enemy’s most cherished plaything.
Brought to Zeke’s stronghold to heal his brother, Jacob, Liz surrenders her body’s most traitorous needs to the unrestrained desires of two powerful men. And the brothers fill the lonely void she has too long endured.
But her clan doesn’t intend to let her go without a fight…and the ecstasy that binds Liz to her lovers could be the thing that breaks them.
The characters in this book are descendents of two different alien races that visited Earth sometime in the distant past. The aliens bred with Native American women and gifted some of the children with powers. Those from Zeke’s people have the gift of prophecy while Liz’s people have healing powers. The powers are rare and Zeke and Liz are some of the strongest of their respective people.
Carreon, the leader of Liz’s people, has captured Zeke and he is near death. Carreon kidnaps Liz and forces her to heal Zeke because he wants to use Zeke’s ability for himself. This healing requires Zeke to have sex with Liz, so that he can be healed completely.
I am not sure why I did not like this book. The premise had real possibilities and some of the sex scenes were handled very well. However, the emotional responses of all the characters seemed forced and unbelievable.
Liz has suffered abuse and humiliation at Carreon’s hands, but she still desires him. Within minutes of healing Zeke, she is falling in love with him. Jacob, a grown man, only wants her because she belongs to Zeke. The only likable person in the story is Zeke and even with him things happen unbelievably fast.
The scenes involving sexual foreplay were explicit and arousing. However, the scenes involving actual sex were rushed, particularly the ones dealing with anal sex. I got the impression the author was not comfortable describing those.
Finally, I felt the book just stopped. Yes, it is the first book in a series, but there was not any indication of what was to come. Normally, I always finish any series I start. I can’t help myself. I doubt I’ll bother with this one though.
Overall: 3 – It probably really deserves a two, but the plot has real possibilities and some of the sex scenes were very well done.
Sensuality level: 4 – I almost gave this a five because there is discussion of Liz being submissive and being whipped. However, it is nothing like a true BDSM book. The pain is simply mentioned, not described.
