To Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Maria families and its reputation for intrigue, is just that-exotic, and wholly unknown. But when her life in the States falls apart, she must travel to her family's ancestral home, where centuries of secrets await her. There, Rosa falls head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose looks and savage grace intrigue and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and the Alcantaras believe Alessandro is using Rosa. And when Rosa encounter a tiger one night-a tiger with familiar eyes-she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem.

Hidden caves in the countryside, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a long history of familial bloodlust prove that Rosa can't trust anyone-not even her own family. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardes decision of her life: Stay in Sicily with her new love...or run as far and as fast as she can.
