The Djinn’s Dilemma
I’m sure that many of you might be aware that Harlequin is slowly phasing out their Nocturne Bites line to replace it with Nocturne Cravings, which has a higher level of sensuality and a slightly longer word count. That said, I’d like to introduce you to the work of one of their newest authors, Mina Khan! The Djinn’s Dilemma releases today and it sounds very hot! I love discovering new authors so I hope ya’ll will check her out!
Here’s the official blurb!
Rukh O’Shay, half-djinn and assassin, is used to taking out the bad guys. But his latest assignment, Texas Journalist Sarah White, is nothing like he expected. A glimpse of her bright aura reveals her gentle spirit, while her beauty makes him long for only one thing—to taste her.
Sarah shares the raw desire to connect with Rukh. He can turn her on with a glance, and satisfies needs she didn’t even know she had.
But Rukh had been hired to kill her—and the only way to save her is to find out who wants her dead before someone else finishes the job….
Excerpt of Djinn’s Dilemma:
“Oh, you want to play,” the larger guy leered. His hands moved to the top button of his jeans. “I’m game. I like to chase pussy.”
Her stomach lurched. Bile, bitter and hot, coated her throat. She jerked the canister of pepper spray out and aimed it at them.
Their eyes widened as jitters rolled off their skin. Drugs? Cold, hard despair coiled in her gut. There’d be no reasoning with junkies. She firmed her stance, ready to fight.
But the two thugs backed away. The knife dropped from Skinny’s shaking hand and landed on the ground with a metallic clunk that reverberated inside her.
Sarah shook the can in what she hoped was a threatening gesture and scowled. “I know how to use it too.” For good measure, she jammed her finger down.
“I thought you said this was gonna be no trouble.” Skinny whipped away from the spray. “Looks like trouble to me.”
His partner shook his head. “We ain’t getting paid enough to take that on,” he said. “Let’s beat it.” The two swiveled around and dashed through the shrubs.
Wow. She was going to buy pepper spray for every female she knew. The disappearance of her would-be assailants flushed away Sarah’s panicked bravado, left her with the shakes. Her shoulders slumped and a long sigh petered out.
“Well, that was easy.” The voice that emerged from behind her was dark and smoky like good rum, flowed soft and hard in unexpected places.
