"Even vampires can be lonley!"

When you are all alone, sometimes being immortal is totally over-rated. Arias Del Rio was a vampire, turned after the conquest of the Aztec empire. After spending hundreds of years alone, with no mate in sight, he performed a spell to find his perfect mate; then went into the deep sleep until she was born. Two hundred years later, he wakes, knowing his mate is waiting for him.

Malika Carter Young had been fascinated with famous conquistador Arias Del Rio her entire life. A museum curator, she was ecstatic when one of his descendents donated his belongings to the museum. What she didn't know was that she was about to meet Arias, and her life would never be the same.

Who knew that history could be so sexy! Arias puts a whole new spin on the mental picture I had of the Spanish explorers. I loved how Malika was an independent woman, and very intelligent. It is always nice to see the heroine be more than just decorative. The love scenes between Arias and Malika were very intense, but still had lots of emotion. All in all, this was a very hot and sexy read!

While unpacking antiques belonging to Arias del Rio, a little known explorer, museum curator Malika Carter Young is stunned to discover a Spanish vampire in a sarcophagus. He's arrogant, gorgeous, and his fangs are an exact fit to the birthmarks on her breast.

Shamed by the greed and violence of his mortal life, Arias del Rio has spent his centuries as a vampire atoning for his sins. After years of loneliness, he has finally found his destined mate, but an enemy from his past has returned and intends to destroy everything Arias loves, beginning with Malika.
