Eleni Markova has never felt emotion before: no happiness, no sadness, no anger, and no fear. She is one of the Hollow People, a group that came about a hundred years ago when a virus swept over the world, decimating the population and leaving only a fraction of people uncontaminated. Most of the contaminated died, and the few that recovered from the plague were changed forever. Their genes were altered, and they lost their ability to feel emotion.
  Now, a hundred years after the Hollow Virus, the only remaining human civilization thrives under the leadership of the Hollow People, and Eleni, a member of the City Guard, is a prime example of what a Hollow Person should be. But when terrorists attack the city, Eleni begins to experience what she never believed she could: fear. The foreign emotion runs rampant though her, causing her to flee for her life and abandon her post.
  With the city in chaos, Eleni must either trust her newfound emotions and a con artist named Oliver or let her home be destroyed.

That definitely sounds like an interesting concept. I can see why you would find it difficult to write a story like that. After all, emotions are part of what gives us personalities.

I love this already and I haven't even read anything yet! Haha, that's a great talent to have :)
Not feeling emotions to their height--this reminds me of the protagonist in my novel. If you check it out you'll see what I mean at both the very beginning and end of chapter one. Literally just published it.  I'm super into your character already
