Three hundred years ago, young dragon Darius en Kragin became a Guardian of the Mist, one of two who use deadly force to protect and conceal the cave entrance to Atlantis.

Grace Carlyle wants some adventure, but getting lost in the Amazonian jungle while searching for her missing brother is not what she had in mind. Abandoned by her guide, the only thing Grace has left is the dragon medallion her brother found. When Grace stumbles through a strange mist into a cave, she finds herself face-to-face with a fearsome warrior complete with a deadly sword. Darius is disconcerted to discover that this human woman carries his old tutor's medallion, which makes him hesitant to kill her before discovering how she got it.

Despite her fear, Grace is not about to back down until she finds her missing brother. Still, having to stay with the all too sexy Darius is no real hardship. However, evil forces are planning an attack that may threaten Atlantis.

Showalter pens a bold and exciting new vision of both Atlantis and dragons. Lots of danger and sexy passion give lucky readers a spicy taste of adventure and romance. (Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
