After being chained to a star to burn endlessly as punishment for stealing immortality from the gods, Jaykun has been unshackled to wage war alongside his brothers, in the name of a goddess. But his freedom comes with a price: Each night Jaykun must still suffer--his body burning from the inside out. One early morning, recovering from his torment, he encounters a beautiful stranger on the beach. Naked from her midnight-black hair down to her sandy toes, she approaches him with starry-eyed innocence and the unmistakable full body of a woman.
Soon Jaykun is swept up with the force of a comet, his desire for her hotter than any sun. His brothers fear he is blinded by her radiant beauty, that she has been sent by their enemies to seduce and destroy him. Jileana is indeed from another world--one Jaykun cannot begin to imagine. But will their passion burn brightly enough to light their way through the darkness that threatens to consume all in its path?

As Frank embarks on the third Immortal Brothers novel (after Cursed by Ice), she comes no closer to settling on a genre for the series. The plots, dialogue, and style are decidedly adolescent, but the numerous steamy love scenes are definitely R-rated, with this installment in particular bordering on X. As punishment for crossing Weysa, the goddess of conflict, brothers Garreth, Dethan, Jaykun, and Maxum were sentenced to eternal torment. The brothers are bound to fight in Weysa's wars in exchange for brief reprieves from their curse. Jaykun endures a 24-hour cycle of burning from the inside out and then being restored to perfect health, only to burn again. After one of his nightly ordeals, he encounters a beguiling naked woman named Jileana. The mysterious Jileana entices Jaykun to squeeze every ounce of joy from the hours of each day he isn't burning, but their relationship is all formulaic folderol with smoldering benefits. This unsatisfying story falls sadly flat. (Oct.)
