Queen of the Cookie Monster ,

a story for a romantic heart

I loved this series, and this book very much. The first couple of chapters I must admit was hard to get past the amount of detail put into the descriptions that some others might love however it is so worth it. The characters are amazing and the story line really pulls you into a world you wouldn’t really have imagined before reading this book. I am all the more better for reading this and I will recommend it to everyone I see!

Mesmerising

The story is sultry and has the essence of Arabia embedded in it. Reading this transports you to a place where you could envision the love of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz. The words of love, the liquid poetry that the author has given us is too much, a great book.
