About Feyna Blackwell

Feyna Blackwell authors romance designed to warm your heart and stir your soul. She is fascinated by ancient history, particularly the Ancient Near East, and has a soft spot for pre-Columbian North and South America. The only reason she doesn’t write true historical romance is because of the huge amounts of research it would entail, much of which is difficult to find since she has a fondness for civilizations that may or may not have kept written records. When Feyna is not working on a manuscript or researching a story idea, she loves to read and spend time in her garden.

Review by: Toni V. Sweeney on July 22, 2012 : (no rating)
A fairly short but good story about finding the courage to speak the truth. Told from both Amana and Husan’s POVs, their sides of the tale are contrasted to show exactly how much they are faithful to their countries and binding to duty but how each also seeks that elusive factor, love, and wishes to have a mate who is just that and not simply a political tool. Right off, the reader learns that Husan is a man who can be patient and attempt to convince his bride to love him, while Amana responds and wishes she could tell him exactly how she feels. The only other character is Rushad who’s featured only briefly but he’s given very good characterization as a father wanted the best for his child and his country while not really understanding his daughter’s wish for “love.” His response is, more or less, “What’s love got to do with it?” But to both Husan and Amana, it has everything.

Only 25 pages, but definitely enjoyable.

I give it 4 Stars.
