It had been two months since Janaan Latimer’s mother had committed suicide, and now she had the opportunity to travel to Damhoor and learn about the other half of her heritage. Only her father too was dead, and her half-siblings wanted nothing to do with Jay. Not wanting to leave Damhoor without learning more about the culture, Jay joined the GAO (Global Aid Organization) as a field doctor to the impoverished desert tribes. Sheikh Malek Aal Hamdaan thought he was dreaming the first moment he set ...more

I really dont't know how to express how overwhelmingly fabulous this book is!!!!! From the first page to the last the adventure of healing, of working, of love, of duty just kept getting better and better.
Such a touching, poignant and all-enveloping story. Such intensity, it had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Such insight into so many different worlds that can exist in one place. Such searing, scorching, intense love and devotion.
Olivia Gates, I salute you !
Readers, do yourselves a favour
This was my first ever sheikh book, and I only read it because it was written by Olivia Gates. And Oh. My. God. It was beyond fantastic. Malek the man, the surgeon and the sheikh was unbelievable and his love for Jay (Janaan) was one of the most beautiful emotions I've ever read. Jay was strong and fearless and the only woman who deserved that god of a man. The medical scenarios are incredibly detailed and move the story along so well. All in all a book that left me panting for more sheikhs. But ...more
Amazing book! No, more than amazing! I am speechless and breathless after reading Malek's and Janaan's heart-wrenching love story. What those two go through to be together will leave you gasping for breath. The medical details and situations are the most detaield and authentic I've ever read. I'm really wondering how this book has been so neglected I could only find a copy in some offshore second-hand bookstore. What is the publisher thinking not reprinting this gem and putting it out as ebook a ...more
A poignant, passionate drama and romance that has almost everything I don't enjoy (a sheikh, a medical setting, a trite title) and in the hands of a masterful author I realized I can not only enjoy those things, but LOVE them. An incredible book through and through, and I'm only sorry I had to buy it used, and can't even find an ebook of it to download to my permanent Kindle library.

I can't believe how fantastic this book was!!! This has to be the most beautiful, poignant love story ever. I cried my eyes out with both Malek and Janaan and really feared their impossible love won't come to pass. Amazing medical content, too. I really have no words to describe how moved I was by this book!
This was my first 'medical romance' novella and I found it quite good. However, all the medical jargon could be confusing for a non-medical person. Then again, a dictionary while reading would always come in handy.

I loved both characters and the degree to which they carry their duties and responsibilities as doctors. The hero was a favorite - alpha male without being an arse.
I moved this book to the top of my tbr pile because its so rare that s series romance scores high with relatively big group of reviewers.

This would have scored much higher for the H, who was totally H worthy, so rare in series romances. Would have scored higher for storyline which kept me reading but I struggled with the prose. Maybe for some it may have been pitched right but I found myself struggling with it. Over the top, flowery and plain ridiculous. That was what I was left with at the end
2nd time I read this and I loved it.
