A smoldering debut novel.
From the time she was a child, Mona Lisa knew she was different--but she never knew how different until a man of otherworldly beauty entered her life.
Once readers get past the silly premise of Sunny's sizzling debut--a humanoid race called the Monère came to Earth from the moon 4,000 years ago--they'll find much to like in this intrigue-filled erotic paranormal. The "children of the moon" are ruled by "Queens," rare females whose ability to pull down the moon's rays allows them to heal rapidly and live 300 years. Gorgeous, shape-changing males protect, serve and have sex with the often ruthless Queens, who sometimes cruelly abuse them. After treating one of these males, Gryphon, at Manhattan's St. Vincent's Hospital one night, 21-year-old ER nurse Lisa discovers she's not only a part-human Monère herself but also the first "Mixed Blood" Queen, Mona Lisa. Her human blood makes her impervious to sunlight and silver--the banes of the Monère--and her latent powers pose a threat to the nastier Queens, who want to destroy her. Mona Lisa shares many traits with Laurell K. Hamilton's heroines, including having lots of hot sex for good causes, but mercifully without their kvetching and self-doubt. (Sept.)

1 . Sexy, Provacative!
Posted September 02, 2010 by Audrey , DelmarIt wasn't what I expected at first but I did enjoy the read. Very erotic but I had a hard time getting into the characters.
2 . A Must Read
Posted September 20, 2009 by Lori , Marfathis book is a must read. I bought all 4 books in the series and couldn't put them down until i finished the last book. There are some very graphic sex scenes so beware. I loved this book and recomend it, especially if you liked the black jewles trilogy by ann bishop.
