Genre: Historical Romance
Twelve years fall away as Johansen picks up where Lion's Bride ended, and a reformed assassin and a former slave girl search for an ancient relic. She uses rapid-fire dialogue and sizzling love scenes to slowly and deliberately tell a tangled tale of intrigue, passion and spellbinding romance.
Kadar is lured back to the assassin stronghold by the power-hungry Nasim. In love with Kadar, Selene boldly follows him and is taken captive. Nasim forces Kadar and Selene to become lovers so that he can steal their child. Caught between their hot desires and freedom, Kadar and Selene embark on an erotic voyage of self-discovery. When Nasim sends them to reclaim a treasure held by the mysterious Tarik, they slowly realize what the treasure is and the danger it represents. They are drawn into the age-old battle between good and evil, and the choice they make will mark their lives and souls forever. (Bantam, Dec., 362 pp., $25.00)
