Kismet's Kiss : A Fantasy Romance (Alaia Chronicles)
"So much sexual tension that the pages are likely to burn your fingers as you eagerly beg for more." -Coffee Time Romance
In a realm of burning sand and scorching sun...
Relentless warrior Sultan Kuramos has never faced a battle he couldn't win-until now. His famed skills with a scimitar can't defend his realm against a deadly epidemic. Not even his best physicians can defeat the scourge. To save his people, he'll do something he's never done before-bend his pride and seek aid from the magical Royal Healer of his greatest enemy.
Healer Varene has heard many tales about the Sultan. The enmity between his realm and hers is the stuff of legend. And, despite his people's fierce condemnation of magic, she doesn't hesitate to aid them. She is prepared for the sultan's well-known arrogance-but not for his courage, his subtle kindnesses, nor his selfless care of the ill. But many in his realm are displeased with her presence. The arrival of the "heathen sorceress" ignites a ruthless plot to overthrow him and nearly gets her burned at the stake.
As they work side by side to find the cure, Kuramos's fierce protection of Varene gains her trust, then her respect, and then an emotion neither dares to admit-love. Kuramos would do anything to keep the one woman who speaks to his soul, whatever the cost to himself. But how can either relinquish their homeland and their principles to be together? Especially since he already has a harem... and his family may be cursed.
