There she must learn the tricks of survival in a cruel and exotic court where erotic desire is not the only animal passion.

Myrna still has faith that Veraine will find her. But Veraine, badly injured, has forgotten everything: his past, his lover, even his own identity. As he undertakes a journey through a fevered landscape of lush promise and supernatural danger, he knows only one thing - that he must somehow find the unknown woman who holds the key to his soul."

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of sexual and nonsexual violence.

This novel is the sequel to Divine Torment.

"Ms. Ashbless paints vivid pictures of strange lands. When Veraine stumbles into the sadomasochistic clutches of the revenant Rani Mirabai, I could see, feel, even smell her haunted, decaying palace. The luxurious and colorful city of the Harimau comes alive when viewed through the eyes of desert-reared Myrna. Anyone who enjoys a romantic tale in the paranormal/fantasy genre, with plenty of exotic sex along the way, should appreciate Burning Bright." - Erotica readers and Writers' Association
