A Tale of Two Djinns By Mina Khan
Nothing gets the biological clock ticking (and elders lecturing) like almost dying in battle, so Maya, princess of the water djinns, travels to Earth for some no-strings-attached sex to fulfill her duty and produce an heir. But the beautiful and tough warrior gets more than she bargained for when she meets Shay.
Their not-so-simple one-night stand is interrupted by assassins and the world, as they know it, is changed forever. As Maya and Shay pull together to survive, both are determined to have their happily-ever-after and bring peace to their worlds -- warring families, shadow assassins, and nosy busybodies be damned.
This was a fast read, which i enjoyed... It starts and ends with a battle... Which is pretty cool... The influence of culture and myth along with the sexual relationship of Maya and Akshay burns up the pages. What was supposed to be a one night stand on Maya's part turned into something more.Between both hiding their true status and djinn type from the one other, shady family members and distrust... Can love survive when war is constant between two cultures of djinn?
Betrayal, fighting, sex, magic, and redemption this quick read has it all... This was the first book I have read by Mina Khan and I can tell you it won't be the last. I have read this book more than once as i love it and it is a super quick read.
