While visiting her grandmother in the Florida Keys, a jilted and humiliated Maddie Winston finds a tarnished old bottle bobbing in the turquoise waters of the Gulf. After giving it a good polishing to see what it was made of, smoke trailed from the bottle's mouth and out pours an honest-to-goodness Chippendale-dancer-like genie.
And why not? With all the trouble Maddie has had lately, what with her fiancé secretly marrying another woman, her company going down the drain, and her uncle trying to sell her up the river, the distraught CEO could use a few good miracles!
What worked for me:
As much as I love kilted Highland heroes, I have to say that Sultans are good too. Ben was absolutely delicious!
Size-wise Maddie's fiancé was always pressuring her to diet and change her looks, and as a child she'd always lived in awe of her late mother's unparalled beauty. By the time Ben had found her she was rather demoralized where her appearance was concerned. Fortunately for her, he was quite enthralled with her curvy figure just as it was.
What didn't work for me:
It was hard to believe that the thousand-years-old-plus son of a sultan could drop in on modern times and swallow feminism without so much as batting an eyelash. Especially when I consider how many guys born in this era still don't get it.
I'll never again be able to read a book with even the slightest reference to the World Trade Center without being pulled out of the story.
A cute, quick read for fans of paranormals and time-travels alike.
