An updated book description:
No one has ever questioned Violet Lancaster’s ability to change the world. As a brainy and self-righteous Ph.D. student at the prestigious Georgetown University, Violet is determined to make a name for herself in Washington, D.C. by working hard to pay her dues, but her moral system is turned upside down when she runs into a man in distraught on a lonesome night. Josh Levinson was born into a powerful Philadelphia mainline family in the year 1776, when the 13 colonies declared independence from Britain. Together they break every human and supernatural law to hunt down a mystical Native American bow and arrow to librate an entire species and to keep it from the evil tyrants from the Far East.
Florid Eyes takes you on an intricate adventure intertwined with an epic romance.
I think it better highlights the adventure/historical/political/supernatural elements of the novel.
