Book Description: Claire Coulter's brother is dying. To Claire's astonishment, her boss offers to pay for the the risky operation that might save him. The catch? Claire must accompany Tobias Benton on a search for the Fountain of Youth.
Despite believing Tobias is on a wild goose chase, Claire agrees--she'll do anything to save her brother. The trip is a disaster: Tobias doesn't just want Claire's company--he wants Claire. But Claire is drawn to Jack, their mysterious and sexy guide.
Although the strange and beautiful deck of tarot cards she's carrying with her predicts a positive outcome, Claire suspects everyone around her is hiding something. Especially Simeon, an urbane older man who claims to be studying snakes, but whose dark demeanor hints at a terrible past.
Claire's psychic sensitivity alerts her that all is not what it seems, but can she figure out who to trust before it's too late?
