Homeland Security Special Agent Eliana Solomon is on a mission to prevent terrorist attacks. Hard enough to do when the threats are human, almost impossible when it's an evil, shape shifting jinni. Eliana needs help so she calls the sexy and beguiling psychiatrist, Arta Shahani. However, no matter how good he is at his job, the man is on her blacklist. On their last case together, the guy left her for dead. 

Arta is stunned when he receives Eliana’s call. Forced to abandon the woman he loves, he now fears she won’t accept his shape-shifting skills as a Persian Lion. Eliana, in the meantime discovers she is a direct descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba with special powers of her own. But will her skill and Arta's be enough to defeat the jinni, or will they lose the love history decreed for them as well as their lives in this battle of good versus evil?


This book is two love stories in one.  There is the ancient one of King Solomon and The Queen of Sheba, and the modern day one where the descendant of them has to deal with the repercussions of their actions. 
Our modern heroine is an agent for an obscure government agency.  She investigates when there is talk of werewolves of other supernatural beings.
This particular case she needs to call on a man she has worked with before. 
Our modern hero is dealing with guilt over the way the last mission ended,  and a personal problem he needs to control. 
I must admit to occasionally getting annoyed at the way the story shifts from past to present.  Always at a crucial moment.  But I can't see how else it could have been told. 
A book you will have to concentrate on, but well worth it. 



After working in health care delivery for years, Sharon Buchbinder became an association executive, a health care researcher, and an academic in higher education. She had it all--a terrific, supportive husband, an amazing son and a wonderful job. But that itch to write (some call it an obsession) kept beckoning her to "come on back" to writing fiction. Thanks to the kindness of family, friends, critique partners, and beta readers, she is published in non-fiction, as well as contemporary, erotic, paranormal ,and romantic suspense. When not attempting to make students, colleagues, and babies laugh, she can be found herding cats, waiting on a large gray dog, fishing, dining with good friends, or writing. 


  1. Thank you for your kind words! I'm so happy you enjoyed the book! I am working on my next one in the series (KISS OF THE BURMESE PRINCE) which will be an epistolary novel using diary excerpts from WWII, so this is very helpful feedback for me.


I hope you all enjoy the books I post about here.
