Miranda Malone is about to embark on the greatest adventure of her life. While she’s on vacation in San Francisco, a masked man kidnaps her at gunpoint. As she tries desperately to think of a way to escape, Miranda notices a tattoo of the Earth on the man’s palm and remembers her beloved father’s deathbed prophecy: “Your future husband will hold the world in the palm of his hand.”
Her abductor turns out to be a gorgeous Napa Valley winemaker who’s running for his life. Eli Hart has uncovered a plot to destroy the vineyard where he works and suspects a French competitor of the crime. He’s being chased by two Frenchmen bent on eliminating him before he can reveal what he knows.
Miranda and Eli set off on an erotic, magical, and sometimes perilous journey that leads from coast to coast. As they strive to elude their pursuers and bring the criminals to justice, they meet a colorful cast of characters, each of whom represents a card in the Major Arcana of the tarot. Their journey is a tarot deck come to life, full of mystery, romance, and passion.
