Sheikh Karim al Safir is the next in line to be the King of his country. He has always done what is expected, what is required, and what is needed for him to become a successful ruler one day. Part of his duty was to spare his father from the self-destructive life his late brother had lead. Cleaning up after Rami's worldwide jaunt before his death leads him to Las Vegas and the one place his brother had seemed to set down roots. Instead, he finds Rami had left behind a son.
Rachel Donnelly had spent a lifetime looking after her sister. When her sister, Suki, hooked up with Rami, had his son, then left him with Rachel, Rachel raised him as her own. Having Karim show up and threaten to take him away was more than she could stand.
I enjoyed the story. Two very different people, but with very similar family histories find that opening oneself up to love is sometimes all it takes.
