Overview

An award-winning historical paranormal romance series from New York Times and #1 internationally best-selling author Lara Adrian (originally published under the pen name Tina St. John).

HEART OF THE FLAME -- Book 2

Six months in an enemy's dungeon might have broken a weaker man, but former Templar knight Kenrick of Clairmont has emerged from imprisonment with an unyielding determination, and consumed by a single daunting quest: to find the Dragon Chalice, a mystical treasure said to grant its bearer unlimited power. It is a dangerous chase, one that pits Kenrick against foes skilled in dark, deadly arts. But no obstacle will prove more treacherous--nor more seductively lethal--than the fiery beauty called Haven.

Caught up in the battle for the Chalice, Haven survives a night of terror that leaves her wounded and near death. Her memory scorched by fever, Haven awakens to find herself in the care of the forbidding, handsome Kenrick, who offers his protection in return for her alliance. A tenuous trust is formed between them, which soon ignites into a fierce passion neither can deny. But Haven's memory of her past is slowly beginning to surface, and it will threaten the fragile bond she and Kenrick share--and embroil them in a fight for their very lives. . . .

"A richly imagined, paranormal-tinged historical . . . dark, exquisitely sensual and beautifully written." -Booklist

Paula Myers
"St. John has outdone herself in this latest page-turner, creating charismatic, sympathetic characters, frightening villains and twists and turns to surprise and entertain readers. The passion and heartache between Kenrick and Haven is sumptuous and catching up with Braedon and Ariana is an added treat. The next Dragon Chalice novel can't come soon enough for me!" --Fresh Fiction
