Whether the chase is for savage boar, political prize, or beautiful heiress, a knight worth his spurs throws himself into it once his blood is up. And if Adam Quintin is to succeed at the secret task given him by the king, he must pursue all three. But never does he imagine he might become the quarry himself. As daughter to the keeper of the hounds, Joan Swan is no stranger to the hunt. Like the legendary Diana, she slips through the moonlit woods with her dogs, her loveliness as irresistible to Adam as the goddess herself. Hunter and hunted, lover and beloved, they will come together in a moment as impossible to escape as it is full of ecstasy.
