I haven't read the previous eleven sic! I generally enjoy the story and the idea. The whole story is set in fictional African country of Mallaruza. Kess works for the president of this country who is running for re-election. Beside the poverty and other issues usually associated with African countries, Mallaruza straggles with an epidemic of some strange disease that is killing millions of people.
I do like the gener I haven't read the previous eleven sic! I do like the general idea that is not very common for romantic suspense genre. However, I feel like the problems of African countries are presented very stereotypical and a bit too casually. Well, I know this is not a non-fiction book or even the one that focuses of political or social aspects, but still I think that the simplification is not my kind of thing and that's probably because I have a PhD in Political Science.
I'm pleasantly surprised by the characters that are very nice and likeable. Simon has a bit of tortured hero vibe but not too much. I wish I knew more, but I believe with eleven books out there, there is no point in explaining all the details in every instalment. Also, the whole magic thing is a bit too easy for me.
Like, you want something and puff, you get it. Yeah, way too easy. But I can live with it. I like this book enough to read the others in this series.
And I think that reading them in order is not a must. Sep 28, Julie jjmachshev rated it really liked it Recommends it for: hot wizard fans. Shelves: reads. Then once I figured out I needed to suspend reality, I loved it! A really hot read with a really hot wizard. She's also kind of keeping a low profile before her upcoming court case back in the States. With Mallaruza's election and her court case coming up in just a few weeks, she's pretty stressed.
Then there's the whole deadly disease and warring neighbor nation thing going on. Into this steps a sexy, tall, drink-of-water friend of the current President and all of a sudden Kess' hormones are going crazy! Simon is battling some craziness of his own. Recently his magical has been going on the fritz. So when he decides to take a vacation and visit his old college buddy, the current President of Mallaruza, he really hadn't planned on stepping smack dab into a mystery.
When he sets out to discover who and what is behind the mysterious, fatal disease he runs into Kess Now if he can just keep both of them alive. Suspend reality and you'll enjoy it. Look for normalcy and logic and you'll be disappointed. Read it for the hot wizard and the smoking sex and you'll have a lovely couple of hours of escapism! Oct 11, Celeste rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this latest book by Cherry Adair. I feel like her writing is getting better and better and am looking forward to the next in this series.
And is it just me First the camel's back in that other book She's great! I love it! View all 6 comments. Together, they uncover a deadly virus, bad wizard, corruption in the African government and The romance was nice and sweet. Simon was such a romantic. It was hard to put down and when I finished this book, I had a big smile on my face!
Thank you for that! I enjoy this author's writing style: "Her heart took a little Snoopy dance Well, hell. That was like expecting a Barbie camper for Christmas and getting No information from previous books is mentioned in this one and two previous characters have brief mentions: Caleb Edge and Mason Knight.

Of course he was redeemed in the final battle with the villain. I listened to the audio format and I was not happy with the reader when she was in the heroine's thoughts or dialogue - It was supposed to be a southern drawl but it came out as a screeching over the top and distracting voice.
