It's down to the wire and Carrie Woods is leaving China without the proof she needs for her thesis: Wei Lin's journal. While on a final tour of the monastery, Carrie finally locates the scrolls and attempts to photograph the documents. Caught in a sticky situation, Carrie takes the scrolls, only to notice a mysterious monk watching her - the same monk that she's seen each time she's taken a tour. Unable to return the scrolls, she travels back to California and isn't too thrilled when she notices the monk at the airport.

Maximillian Prescott first came to the monastery as an orphaned teenager when he inherited the Book of Metal from a distant uncle he hardly knew. After spotting a woman stealing from the monastery, he follows her to get back the documents he knows she's stolen. Max is further intrigued when he finds out that the chatty woman is friends with his archrival, Rhys Llewellyn, and he will stop at nothing to get back everything he's lost.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Can't wait for the next in this series...simply great reading. Another winner by this amazing author."--Romance Reviews Magazine
"Get ready to stay up late, Kate Perry has written a fabulous blend of urban fantasy and romance. MARKED BY PASSION is filled with unique mythology, exciting plot twists, and sizzling chemistry between its characters. I will be impatiently waiting for the next Guardians of Destiny novel."--Jeaniene Frost New York Times bestseller of One Foot in the Grave on MARKED BY PASSION
"Monks, monasteries, ancient Chinese secrets and kung fu, along with characters perfectly suited to one another, and plenty of passion make this a book you won't want to miss. Oh yeah, there's danger too (how else would we get kung fu?) as someone besides Max knows Carrie has those scrolls in her possession. Kate Perry shows a deft hand in this book, combining all those diverse elements into a shining, beautiful whole. Her knowledge and research show. I'm happy to say that the deal has been made for the third Guardians book, and I can't wait to read it. In the meantime, I'll be getting a copy of the first book and probably even rereading CHOSEN BY DESIRE."--Lori Ann, Romance Reviews Today
"The Guardians of Destiny urban romantic fantasy (see MARKED BY PASSION) is a fast-paced action thriller from the moment that Carrie questions why she is stealing the scrolls and never slows down as a mutual enemy craves what she took. [It is] fun to watch Max's agony of falling in love with a person he considers a lowlife academic crook. The return of the stars from the previous entry enhances an entertaining often amusing taut thriller."--Harriet Klausner, Harriet Klausner Reviews
"Kate Perry's Chosen by Desire kept me up all night and left me royally satisfied. I just wonder how she will out do herself on her next novel as this one blew me away. Chosen by Desire is now one of my favorite paranormal reads and Kate Perry is on my auto buy list. "--Night Owl Romance.com
"Spellbinding, sensual, and full of nonstop entertainment, this read kept me on edge...Be prepared to fall into a world of ancient Chinese magic and smoldering guardians you won't wish to escape from anytime soon."--romancejunkiesreviews.com
"A sexy hero and action packed . . I thoroughly enjoyed it!"--Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of The Darkest Pleasure on MARKED BY PASSION
"Kate Perry has created a sexy world of kick-ass action! You'll want to immerse yourself in MARKED BY PASSION, the first in a thrilling new series, complete with a smoldering hero and the toughest, sassiest heroine around."--Veronica Wolff, author of Sword of the Highlands on MARKED BY PASSION
"This is exciting and simply terrific. Original and inventive...[the] story is so exceptional that it can only earn the top rating. Looking forward to the sequel!"--Donna Doyle on MARKED BY PASSION, Romancereviews.com
"Perry kicks off a first-person urban fantasy series, the Guardians of Destiny, by introducing readers to Gabrielle Sansouchi Chin. This is a great premise with an interesting but stubborn protagonist. Keep an eye out on this author and series."--Romantic Times BookReviews
"The paranormal world feels real and the plot is action-packed and super-sexy in Kate Perry's Marked by Passion. Told through the voice of Gabrielle Sansouci Chin, a bartender and artist, this romance begins with Gabrielle's discovery that her estranged father has died and left her as guardian of an ancient scroll with special powers. Despite her reluctance to take on the role of the artifact's protector, Gabrielle finds she can't turn away from it, nor from the sexy Brit, Rhys Llewellyn, who seems to know more about her and her situation than is safe. With bad guys shadowing her through the streets of San Francisco, not to mention the spirit of her father and the tantalizing sensuality that Rhys exudes, Gabrielle has her hands full. There are secrets to uncover and danger to confront in this story of a woman learning to accept her new duties and the love of a powerful man."--Bookpage on MARKED BY PASSION
