Heart of a Hunter by Sylvie Kurtz ~ Harlequin Intrigue April 2004
Heart of the Hunter is the first book in The Seekers series and if
this book is an example of what is to come, The Seekers is going to be

the best stories I've read all year.

was rewarding in itself but the story also captured my heart and mind
as it drew to its delightful conclusion. I whole heartedly recommend
THELAST CHAMPION as a "must read"!
