Marinelli (The Surgeon’s Miracle Baby) sets this insipid contemporary romance in both London and the fictional Middle Eastern country of Zazinia and fills it with the sort of guilty-pleasure fantasy clichés normally associated with the romance novels of previous generations. Felicia is a powerful and talented woman who specializes in advising men on the proper ways to fix their careers and lives. She works for each man in the guise of his assistant, is paid a generous salary, and spends however long it takes extricating her clients from each scandal du jour. Crown Prince Sheikh Kedah of Zazinia is one such powerful man. His foreign education and his father’s seeming preference for his younger brother put his title in jeopardy. At the advice of a friend, he hires Felicia as one of his personal assistants, and of course the sparks fly. Shallow characterization and reliance on tired stereotypes are the final nails in the coffin of this throw-away read. With little to recommend either of the shallow main characters, the only enticement of the story is the occasional brief glimpse at how the ultra-wealthy might live. (Sept.)

Carol Marinelli recently filled in a form asking for her job title. Thrilled to be able to put down her answer, she put writer. Then it asked what Carol did for relaxation and she put down the truth - writing. The third question asked for her hobbies. Well, not wanting to look obsessed she crossed the fingers on her hand and answered swimming but, given that the chlorine in the pool does terrible things to her highlights – I’m sure you can guess the real answer.

Romance and scandal abounds as readers get up close and personal with the ruling family of Zazinia. Marinelli's world development and descriptions allow readers to picture this land and travel there alongside the characters. The plot had an air of formulaic construction yet the romance that develops between the characters is so real that it is an easy focal point. The characters that we meet here are somewhat atypical to what I'd expected. I enjoyed how they were developed and the way in which we get to know them. Their story was easy to see and to follow. They were a little too perfect of a fit at times, but also enjoyable to get to know. As a whole, this was a fun, light read that I think would be great for a crisp fall afternoon curled up on the couch. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars! Ever since Kedah was a young boy, he has been aware of his family’s rigid standards and the precarious nature of him becoming the Crown Prince he is supposed to be. Over the years, he grew into a man who cares deeply for his country but turned into a self-made billionaire playboy to ensure he was in control of his future. Now with his grandfather finally passed, he is the official Crown Prince, and he knows that soon the Accession Council will probably meet to overthrow him to his younger brother. Therefore, he brings in Felicia (a renowned PR representative) to become his London PA. During their time together, they grow closer than they typically do to others and soon the lines are blurring between their personal lives and business relationship. Then just when the Accession Council decides to go forward with their plans to thwart Kedah, Felicia gets a curve ball of her own … will they be able to deal with all the issues being thrown their way and still manage a “working relationship” or will everything come to a head and ruin their best laid plans. Endearing. Spicy. Erotic. With a whole lot of sass. It was easy to enjoy this fast-paced contemporary romance that entices its readers into wanting to find out about Kedah’s parentage as much as he does. Then with it throwing in the elusive Felicia, this novel gets a WHOLE lot hotter! While both Kedah and Felicia are very domineering, I find it intriguing in the way their relationship grew from co-workers to lovers with the possibility of something more. I couldn’t get enough of them as a duo. The heat between them rises off its pages. I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for an erotic contemporary romance! Review By: From Me to You ...
