Centuries ago, the great kingdom of Samhia dominated the north of Africa. Tareq Samhizzan, next in line to the throne, was glad to find Jem'ya Okobi, a gifted healer living on the coast, after months of searching for relief from his chronic pain. For a year, the troubled Arab prince hides his identity and suppresses his feelings for the dark-skinned beauty. Jem'ya settles for a friendship with the handsome patient she has fallen for. When Tareq and his warriors fall into an unplanned battle with her tribe in Middle Africa, she learns the disturbing truth: The man she loves is a murderous warrior and the son of an infamous king. The tragic battle spins Jem'ya away from him in a storm of grief and rage, while Tareq is driven toward Jem'ya, desperate for forgiveness from the woman he realizes has total possession of his heart. In this passionate, captivating tale, resentment, loss, pride and obsession threaten to divide the healer and the prince forever, but they will only find peace in each other.
