Exquisite Captive av Heather Demetrios
(Dark Caravan Cycle #1)
Releasedatum: 7 oktober 2014

Forced to obey her master.
Compelled to help her enemy.
Determined to free herself.

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?

  2. Yesss" Gorgeous cover and sounds really unique, I've only seen like two to do with Jinni's this year, so should be good. :)

  3. This was one I'd kind of hoped to get at BEA, but since I didn't, now I'm not so sure if I'm excited about it or not.

  4. It's always up in the air with the "sworn enemy" love. The book could go one way or the other, possibly taking the whole "master" thing a little too far. I'm curious to see where this one goes. My WoW Followed you on Bloglovin
