by Tara Pammi, author of The Last Prince of Dahaar
I saw a review on Amazon UK that touched my heart so much and I think summarized my April release The Last Prince of Dahaar very well, so I’m going to put it here:
This story is about the passionate yet determined Zohra and Ayaan, a tortured soul who needed her feistiness and tenacity to get through to him to accept her love.
Zohra and Ayaan bring everything that’s missing from each other’s life. Ayaan gives her honor, respect that Zohra’s always lacked as her father’s illegitimate daughter, and Zohra brings the tenacity and love and belief that Ayaan needs to realize he’s deserving of love and happiness.
Harlequin Presents are all about the Alpha heroes whom I do adore. But for me, it’s also the heroines that tug at my heart. And it was the same in case of Zohra too.
I thought she would be a martyr but she surprised me when, half way through, she realized what she had lost by letting her prejudices color her. And then she went for what she wanted. She challenged Ayaan, she told him that she wanted a life with him, that she would stick by him no matter what.
Ayaan Al Sharif, the hero of the book is the most noble hero I’ve ever written. At the beginning of the story, he’s just back in his home country Dahaar after five years of being mad following a terrorist attack that killed his siblings. His belief in himself is low, his is wrecked by nightmares of that horrible day and the worst of all, he’s facing the prospect of ruling his country and taking a bride. But duty means everything to Ayaan, so he will do it.
Do you like a hero who struggles with his belief in himself?
About The Last Prince of Dahaar:
A vow to break?
She’s a bullet point on the list of things he’s agreed to for duty. And as it is the only way to restore order in Dahaar and quash whispers that name him The Mad Prince, Ayaan Al Sharif will marry Zohra Naasar.
Zohra knows something of duty’s destruction—it’s stolen her freedom before, and it won’t happen again. She’ll convince Ayaan not to marry her—by refusing to sleep with him! Even if he does evoke a desire she’s never felt before.
Ayaan may have agreed to her outrageous demand, but is this the one promise the last prince of Dahaar can’t keep?
