If you enjoy stories like The King and I, "Aladdin", and 1,001 Arabian Nights, you'll adore this romance between a strong woman who won't give up on her ideals and a man whose kingly responsibilities have precluded true love...until now.
Kismet's Kiss is a two-time Romance Writers of America Golden Heart finalist and was nominated as Best Fantasy Romance and Best Debut of 2010 by The Romance Reviews.
In the desert realm of Kad, a deadly epidemic strikes the palace of Sultan Kuramos. Only a magical healer from an enemy land has the skill to save his royal household, but Kuramos never imagined the healer would be a woman.
Healer Varene finds her own surprises in Kad. She expects the sultan's arrogance, but not his courage, his selfless care of the ill, or the possibility the epidemic is the hex of a vengeful goddess.
Kuramos's culture condemns Varene's mystical talents. Her presence triggers an insurrection, yet as he and the healer toil for a cure, he loses his heart to her. She falls for him as well, but how can she relinquish her homeland and her principles? He already has a harem...and his family may be cursed.
