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

Ancient myths brought to life in the Sicilian countryside, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a long history of familial bloodlust prove to Rosa that she can't trust anyone—even her own family. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love . . . or run as far and as fast as she can.
