LaCroix blends past and present as she weaves an intricate tale of love between supernatural characters. Egyptian artifacts and ancient protectors of the mortal world launch a tale of greed and trickery.

Katina is a protector of innocents, be they animal or human -- so when she hears a cry for help, she is on the move as a beautiful black panther: a sight that puts the fear of death into a rapist and makes a murderer stop in his tracks. She is content in her role as protector, but wishes for more with Seth, her boss at the museum. One night, her wish is fulfilled when they share a kiss. But when an ancient evil god possesses Seth, Katina must fight to win back his soul. (, dl $5.20)
