Lyssa thinks that Mike doesn’t want her since he canceled a date with her to take photographs. Mike is starting to realize his job as an undercover agent for the CIA is making a big problem for him, as far as Lyssa is concerned.

In the third book of the Diablo Blanco Club series, Rite of First Claim takes you on an emotional journey that made me cry at times. Mike is frustrated because he has fallen in love with an older woman that feels she is not lovable because of the abuse she endured growing up. The author did a good job showing some of the problems when an undercover agent for a government agency is trying to woo the person they love.

Lyssa wants a child and uses an invitation Mike sent her to attend a Masquerade Ball at the club. A friend of Mike’s let him know Lyssa is there and Mike invokes his claim on her. What follows is a very realistic view of someone who has trouble believing that people will stay around and support her and while the chemistry between the two is scorching, Lyssa fights her submissive nature. The author threw in some twists that created more problems between Mike and Lyssa, but were resolved realistically. The cast of secondary characters from the first two books show up, but while I recommend you read them first, you can enjoy this book by itself. I am looking forward to reading more from Qwillia Rain.
