When Cassandra Deville learns of the arrival of the English ship on her small pacific island, she fears the worst. Although her father has never fully explained the reason for her family's flight from France during the Reign of Terror, she suspects that something sinister is involved. Cassandra is sure that the Englishman is her father's enemy.

Jared Danemount is searching for the man who caused his family's brutal murder. Jared believes he has found the culprit until Cassandra lures him away.

Despite Cassandra's dreams of breeding her stallion, Kapu, to build a stable of prized horses, she will do anything necessary to save her father's life, even use her body to distract Jared.

Enchanted, Jared seduces Cassandra only to learn that he has been betrayed, lulled by Cassandra's innocent wiles. He will bring her to England and then on to France as he continues his quest for revenge. It is a journey that will end in a brilliant and frightening climax.

DARK RIDER is a stirring and sensual tale of intrigue, adventure and danger sweeping from the beautiful peace of the islands to the treachery and peril of Regency era Europe. By setting the strict rules of the Regency against the carefree culture of the islands, Iris Johansen adds depth and color to another brilliantly crafted, spellbinding romance. Here comes another bestseller from a superb writer. (May, 422 pp., $5.99)
