This is another awesome cover from the talented mouse of Whit Holcomb. The hero of this story is Egyptian-American and the heroine is from the mythical country of Laritrea. I took a few liberties with this cover. For one thing, the hero is wearing a keffiyeh. This is a throw-back to those old eighties “sheikh” romances. North African Arabs don’t typically wear this headdress, but I liked the look and the bit of nostalgia. The mosque in the background is actually in Algeria. As the country of Laritrea doesn’t exist, I don’t think using a photo from another country does any damage, as long as I acknowledge it.
Here’s the blurb:
Exiled from her homeland and fearing for her life, Astaria was forced into a marriage of convenience. Now the political situation in her country has worsened and she returns in an effort to save her family.Kaeden is a Marine who specializes in hostage extraction and now he faces his most difficult mission; rescuing his wife from certain death and even more dangerously, sharing his love for her. Together they face almost insurmountable odds for love and for life.
