Lucia, star ballerina with a passion for the internet, meets Rashid al-Jazari, a brilliant technology innovator and businessman. As her attraction to him grows, so does danger she faces in his company.  An attempted kidnapping results in her being flown to Rashid's home in Morocco. There she discovers that Rashid has created a self-aware AI – and there are enemies who will stop at nothing to gain access to this creature.  Understanding other cultures, compromise, and the shifting boundaries between human and AI are all part of this smart, fast-paced romantic thriller.
