The Children of the Sun follow their destiny in this wondrous tale of enchantment and passion as two couples meet their fate. Jones allows her sense of comic
timing to meld with blazing sensuality, producing a delightfully original tale
about a realm where magic is reality and love is the prize.
Merin and Bela agree to divorce, but that means being tied together for 22 days and nights, long enough to either kill one another or fall in love. Not only must they battle assassins and follow Bela's talking sword, Kitty, on a dangerous journey into the Forbidden Mountain, they must also stave off the desire that sizzles between them. While they fight for their lives, his brother and Lady Leyla travel a rough and hazardous road to uncover what fate has designed for them. When their lives intersect and magic reigns, will supreme love survive? (Berkley Sensation, Dec., 320 pp., $7.99)
