This book starts out showing the last few moments before Haidar and Roxanne parted ways. The exchanges between Haidar and his twin Jalal & between Haidar and his lover Roxanne are very intense and hint at the relationships up until that point. The current story takes place eight years later. So much of that bad blood between all the parties involved was an indirect, or more often, a direct result of the manipulations and actions by Jalal and Haidar’s evil psycho mother. Years later, her poisonous ways have affected current events and relationships. Haidar, Jalal, and their cousin Rashid are all in town to compete for the title of King. Roxanne is in town to try to help ease the political climate and offer her diplomatic services. When Haidar & Roxanne see each other again, the attraction is still there, except magnified now that they have become a little older and matured. One of the things I liked about this book is that they don’t jump into bed again before doing a lot of talking to each other and a lot of introspection. The intimate moments were very passionate and sexy. I found the interactions between the lovers and other characters interesting as well and was happy that a lot of talking went on in efforts to repair those damaged relationships as well. I am looking forward to Jalal’s book and hoping Rashid gets a book as well.
