Dark times shall claim the land.
One woman, a bearer of light, shall lead the way...
Come on, really? Shut up with your crazy talk. I just want to cut loose in Las Vegas and have a good time.
The Numina, the esteemed guardians of the Earth, are alive and well. Their leader, the Keeper of Time and Records, version 5.1.1, knows all the secrets and mysteries, save one—what will happen to the world if the light bearers don't come into their own?
And one potential light bearer holds the key—Marissa Engles.
Hold up. Stop. That's utter nonsense. That's what they'd have me believe. But I have different plans. My sisters told me to stop being so serious while in Las Vegas. I figure I'm going to take them up on the suggestion, especially when an extremely hot male dancer catches my eye.
Tonight, if I'm lucky, I've got a date with destiny--he stands about six-foot-three and he looks like he power-lifts ponies in his spare time. All this talk about magic and power will have to wait. The only destiny I'm interested in is waiting for me backstage. There's no way I'm going to say no to what awaits me, understood? Good. I'm glad we're in agreement--because courting destiny can be a bitch, especially when it takes a sharp left turn.
The Beckoning of Beguiling Things is the start of a one woman and too many delicious men to choose from kind of romantic adventure.
