School teacher Kira Ellison embarks on an archeological vacation to southern Italy in search of the phantom Holy Grail, one last diversion before she settles into the life that is expected of her.
Prior to her arrival, a premonition forewarns her of the dangers that lay in wait. When she comes face to face with Dominic Fioretti, the "man of her dreams," the danger becomes all too real, both physically and emotionally.
"Author Karla Brandenburg presents a romance novel that strives to expand the genre and offer the reader suspense, mystery, mystic wonder and, of course, true romance. . . For anyone who enjoys romance novels, this book will not be a disappointment. It is well written and allows the romance to grow as a natural part of the narrative. Much in the same way that Nora Roberts crafts a good story first and allows the love interest to support but not overwhelm the plot, The Treasure of St. Paul delivers a well told tale that holds suspense until the very end." - A guest reviewer for the Chicago Daily Herald
"Karla Brandenburg weaves a surprising tale of suspense and romance in THE TREASURE OF ST PAUL. The historical value of this book is remarkable. The romance depicted is thrilling and satisfying. The characters are believable and well written. This reviewer can't wait for her next novel." - Tammy Falkner for Road to Romance

About the Author
Raised on the gothic romances of Victoria Holt, I also enjoyed reading Stephen King and Rod Serling, which influences bring supernatural elements into the contemporary romances that I write. I'm a card-carrying cookie-holic and while I don't like coffee as a rule, I do like all those fun flavors you can get in the individual serving pods. When I'm not at home in Illinois (where I've lived all of my life in various of Chicago's suburbs) I enjoy travel, and many of those places creep into my stories.

The author has reworked her previous version of this story (The Treasure of St. Paul) into something magical. Kira's journey to southern Italy in search of the Holy Grail starts out as a lark, but once she gets there, she believes that it might not be so far fetched. Dominic, the dark and brooding "Padrone," is determined to find the person responsible for sabotaging the excavation, and the last thing he wants to deal with is an archeological student that he believes to be his rakish brother's paramour. Historical, magical, satisfying, I would highly recommend this story!
