At the beginning of the novel, the reader finds Narice Jordan who is the principal of an exclusive school grieving, after her father, a prominent doctor was murdered in an arson attack at his home. She is kidnapped by a man who interogates her about the whereabouts of an african diamond. This is the motive for her father's murder as Narice finds out that her father was the 'keeper' for a mystical green diamond which was fabled to have been given to the Queen of Sheba by King Solomon. 'The Majesty' the female ruler of an african country, cannot be recognised as the true leader of her country without the stone; and her opponents want to steal the stone in order to take over her country.
Narice is rescued by the mysterious green eyed 'Saint' who keeps her safe amidst a hail of bullets as federal agents and all manner of bad guys pursue them to get their hands on the stone. Narice's only clue is a quilt made in the style of slave quilts which acts as a map to the location of the diamond. She's not sure if she can trust Saint or the Majesty who put her to the task of finding the diamond and her father's murderer.

Who in his right mind would do such a thing???? You'll feel cooked, no romance there and on top it is irresponsibly waste of money. Who today can even think of such a thing??? I was deeply disappointed by the end. It seemed like there was a hurry to get the story resolved. Which was a pity, too. I'll stick with Beverly Hills Historicals, I am afraid.
The mysterious Galen Anthony "Saint" St Martin, a self proclaimed mercenary finds himself pitted against an old enemy in his quest to find the Eye of Sheba. Teamed with the beautiful Narice Jordan, founder and CEO of Jordan Academy a school for children of the elite and daughter of the Eyes Keeper. Saint never suspected this assignment would not only have his life in danger but his heart as well.
Narice is kidnapped not once but twice after burying her father who died in a suspicious house fire. Saint discovers the hard way there is alot more to the headmistress than her file indicates as he chases the former track star through the streets of Detroit. Trying to convince Narice her safety is his priority as they prepare to meet The Majesty is the cause of some very funny moments between the pair.
Using the quilt her father left as their road map to find the treasured Eye. Saint and Narice become one anothers salvation against armed helicopters, car chases, laced darts and syringes as their lives are constantly endangered and they get closer to finding the Eye. As well as closer to realizing the full depth of their attraction.
Narice is no screaming female waiting for her galant hero to rescue her. But, she can't ignore her need for the handsome, shaded cheetah. Saint's admiration and reverence for the fearless strength of this classy woman who's not afraid to admit her faults grows along with his emotions he trys to protect.
Great secondary characters, Uncle Willie and Arnold don't play, Jesse and James really don't play. Portia is a force alone and Aunt Camille takes no prisoners. Although Mykel and Sarita played a small part I missed not seeing Hizzoner. I loved everything about this book and did not think Saint was literally blind only in the sense of bad vision the way many of us who wear vision enhancements are. I recommend for those who have not read the prequel, Edge Of Midnight is a must read.
book after book. She's that good. Started with her historical romance and loved them. They were well written. I will continue to read her books consecutively until I've read the last one that she's written up until now. Then only after I read Destiny's Captive which is one of her historical romances in the Destiny series. If you haven't read those, READ THEM. They are the best. You won't be able to put those down.
