Duty will bring them together - and tear them apart!
As a guardian angel, Mischa must protect the one man who may be able to bring about lasting peace to the Middle East. As a djinni, Rafe must fulfill the wishes of a terrorist leader. Their duties colliding, Mischa and Rafe become foes, but the heat between them is undeniable.
When the terrorist learns that a guardian angel stands between him and his greatest wish, he orders his djinni to remove her. Taking creative license, Rafe spirits her away to his private oasis, where she will be unable to protect the peacemaker.
Beyond their mutual desire, they find common ground in honor and loneliness. Passion quickly grows into love. But it's soon clear to Rafe that love cannot be bound, and Mischa must be true to her life's purpose. Even if Rafe must sacrifice his own taste of freedom to grant hers....
It could just be me, but the story simply made no sense. For the life of me, I can't figure out how the couple went from lust to love. And the whiny tone of the captive who, all-too-quickly, refuses to acknowledge that she was a captive, was waaayyyy too much. This story was so short, and, yet, it was too long for me. To not pass the need-to-fast-forward test in just a little over 2.5 hours is pitiful. I think the premise was a good one but sooooo poorly executed it's not even worth the small price. In this case, I guess I got what I paid for. Even though I think I still paid too much. I will always get to the end of story in order to have closure, feel like I didn't completely waste my money, and see if my poor assessment improves. And so I got to the end this time too, though I had to fast-forward to lessen my grimacing moments. And it never improved. Boy was I happy when it was over while also tremendously disappointed.
