Homeland Security Special Agent Eliana Solomon is on a mission to prevent terrorist attacks. Hard enough to do when the threats are human, almost impossible when it's an evil, shape shifting jinni. Eliana needs help so she calls the sexy and beguiling psychiatrist, Arta Shahani. However, no matter how good he is at his job, the man is on her blacklist. On their last case together, the guy left her for dead.
Arta is stunned when he receives Eliana’s call. Forced to abandon the woman he loves, he now fears she won’t accept his shape-shifting skills as a Persian Lion. Eliana, in the meantime discovers she is a direct descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba with special powers of her own. But will her skill and Arta's be enough to defeat the jinni, or will they lose the love history decreed for them as well as their lives in this battle of good versus evil?
"Buchbinder weaves two tales into one novel, with chapters alternating between a contemporary American setting and a fictional take on the tale of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba...The queen is so well developed that readers may find themselves wanting to learn more of the actual history behind the Ethiopian dynasty she is said to have begun." ~~Karen Sweeny-Justice, RT Book Reviews, December, 2015, p. 67.
"Readers that enjoy history wrapped in contemporary stories will love "Kiss of the Virgin Queen". They will come back for more of Solomon's and Sheba's story and for Eliana and Arta's budding relationship." ~~Mary-Nancy Smith, InD'tale Magazine, Dec/Jan 2015 issue, page 109.
