Daughter of the King of the Assassins, Zahirah was trained to be as deadly as she is beautiful. When she steals into the desert camp of the English army, she has one goal: to banish the crusaders from her homeland by murdering King Richard the Lionheart. Her deceptive strategy delivers her into the hands of the enemy -- and puts her ast the mercy of the dashing Black Lion, Sebastian of Montborne.
Fighting for peace in a dangerous, exotic land, Sebastian never dreamed that the tides of war would bring him a mysterious beauty in need of his protection. Nor could he guess that the lady who ignites his heart is the very enemy he has sworn to destroy on behalf of his king. Caught in a deadly game of passion and deception, their unbidden love could cost them their lives ...
Intelligent second book in Warriors series. Intense affair of the heart between strong honorable Crusader Sebastian and beguiling Muslim beauty Zahariah. The usual twisting road for the lovers, but the backdrop of the Crusades makes it a historical reminder of the horrors of war.
Nicely sets up book three at the end.
Loved the book so much I am going out to buy my own copy to support the author and posting this second-hand book so that others can experience how wonderful this story is! :)
