I read this in one sitting, as my Mother’s Day treat to myself. This is romantic suspense at its best! Charisse is a young queen who has just lost her much older husband. Khalid is the brooding playboy, youngest son of the king of a neighboring country. Charisse’s husband’s dying wish is that she marry Khalid, for the stability of their country. What I liked best about the romance part was that the main things keeping these two from letting each other in were their own insecurities and issues from the past. There were a few misconceptions and misunderstandings at the beginning, but in most romance novels those keep happening throughout the book until I want to shake the couple and bang their heads together. Instead, Ms. MacKenzie switches to the much more realistic issues that tend to keep real-life couples from living happily ever after. I also particularly liked Ms. MacKenzie’s world of made-up countries that were such a realistic blend of old cultures and traditions with modern technology and global connections. Regarding the suspense aspect, there were enough twists and turns and heart-pounding scenes to keep me, a mystery writer, intrigued. There are hints at the end of more stories to come about these characters. I can’t wait! Kassandra Lamb, author of the Kate Huntington mysteries
