This romance placed African culture front and center. I thought it was quite appropriate as many have rediscovered or discovered the richness that is found in the culture. I loved that both, Haji and Chinara, were clearly enjoying and ingrained in Western culture, they didn't lose the importance of their heritage. The author also gives us something a little different from those country boys, we've come to crave from her writing. The characters were well developed as was the storyline. The characters worked individually and as a unit. The story flowed well and moved along at a moderate pace. Now while this was not my favorite in her catalog, it was still a sexy enjoyable read.
