"entertaining urban fantasy served up hot and fast"

The peaceful race known as The'Rans were legendary for the healing powers of their beautiful women, but when an ancient covenant was broken The'Ran lands were destroyed along with most of its inhabitants. Now the fate of the powerful Ceyan lies in the hands of four warrior brothers and their The'Ran brides. In a race against time, these four women must come to terms with their legacy and embrace their destiny as healers in this strange new world.

The second installment of DESCENDANTS OF THE LIGHT picks up with the story of Genesis, a beautiful and headstrong doctor in danger of losing her job for breaking hospital protocol. A road trip with her sister Eden starts out as a means for clearing her head, but quickly ends with a kidnapping straight out of "The Twilight Zone." Upon learning she and her sister are to marry a Ceyan warrior, Genesis does not accept her fate without resistance. Prince Kalian has already claimed her for his own, but will Genesis stop fighting him long enough to acknowledge the truth about her own feelings?

Genesis and Kalian's story continues to propel the plot of the overall story arc in this erotic fantasy series. Everyone falls in love with breakneck speed and wastes very little time with formalities. Readers who like their romance hot and fast and their fantasy light and fun will enjoy this series. Though the story is fairly predictable, Eve Vaughn concludes the second novella with a suspenseful lead-in into the third installment, "HOPE'S HEART."
