Nightfall Island

After being chased from their homeland by mages seeking the power within Rora, and nearly losing their lives in a shipwreck, Rora and her sister Mara had been led by Rora’s “sight” to the secluded island of Nightfall. Not heeding her overprotective twin’s warning to stay put until she returned, Rora began to explore the caverns behind the waterfall and soon is hitching a ride on an enchanted cart deeper into the depths of these fascinating caves. Rora finds herself in a bedchamber and soon is in the arms of a darkly handsome man who awakens Rora to passion!

Rydan the sixth born of the sons of destiny stays away as much as he can from his family. Their emotions are disturbing to Rydan, so he seeks the solace of the dark of night. His well-meaning but meddlesome youngest brother, Morganan, has slipped a drug into his morning juice, and Rydan is compelled to take the slumbering woman in his bed to the heights of passion. The Storm is about to erupt its powers when Rydan awakens the magic inside Rora.

The sixth and most enigmatic brother, Rydan, of the Sons of Destiny has his story told and destiny fulfilled in The Storm. Jean Johnson uses an interesting ploy by having her previous novel The Cat and this book interact from different points of view, but this also is a detriment to the reader at points of the story when you realize that you have read this already. Plod through it to the heart of the romance with Rydan and Rora, and The Storm is sure to be a gratifying read.
