Desperately seeking the second of the four ancient Varenski icons that can nullify his family's curse, archaeologist Rurik Wilder, whose supernatural gifts involve shape-changing into a winged predator, is joined on a remote Scottish isle, where his team is excavating the tomb of an ancient warlord, by photojournalist Tasya Hunnicutt, a woman of hidden talents and with whom he shares a past. But when an explosion rigged by thugs destroys the tomb and sends them fleeing across Scotland, Rurik and Tasya soon realize that they are both in the crosshairs of the evil side of the Varenski family, and it will take a near miracle to get them out alive. Sexy, fast paced, and exceptionally creative, this paranormal romance is the second of Texas-based Dodd's "Darkness Chosen" titles (after Scent of Darkness). A sweeping saga of good and evil, the series chronicles the adventures of four siblings who try to redeem their family from a pact an ancestor made with the devil 1000 years earlier. This latest promises to be one of her best to date. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
