Myth tells of a magical Dragon Chalice from the fairy realm that was shattered and its four jewels scattered. Whoever can rejoin the jewels will possess a power unlike any known before. Lady Ariana has information about the jewels she wants to use to free her brother. She hires a guide to escort her to France, and when the guide tries to sell her into slavery, she is rescued by Braedon Le Chasser, the Hunter.

Braedon knows the tale of the Dragon Chalice and is aware of Ariana's knowledge of it. Their journey is one of danger and growing love tinged by the realization that if Ariana succeeds in turning over what she knows to their enemy, the world and their love may be doomed.

St. John spins a spellbinding story with freshness, vitality and strong characters whose riveting adventure makes for a nonstop read. This is St. John at the very top of her form. SENSUAL (Jun., 380 pp., $6.99)
