FROM SMOKELESS FIRE SERIES
BOOK ONE: SUMMONED
The wrong jinn at the right time, Zahara’s a force to be reckless with.
Zahara, party girl of the paranormal, floats up out of a lamp in Daniel Goldstein’s apartment ready to trick an evil sorcerer into giving up his soul. But Daniel, whose Moroccan grandmother has reached out from beyond the grave to command him to raise a jinn, wants to do good—by stopping a vengeful fallen angel.
The nymphomaniacal, shopping-obsessed Zahara isn’t the otherworldly ally Daniel had in mind. A do-gooder with a dangerous quest isn’t what Zahara’s looking for, either.
Stuck in a magical contract with each other, the two travel to Morocco, where Zahara’s handsome friend Zaid, a jinn who’s converted to Islam, reluctantly joins their quest. As Daniel and Zaid struggle against jinn-hunting mercenaries and their attraction to one other, Zahara is forced to join forces with the fallen angel’s gorgeous but infuriating brother to stop a cataclysmic war between the human and jinn worlds.
BOOK TWO: SOUL TO STEAL
She’s stolen souls, she’s stolen cars, but is Zahara foolish enough to lose her heart to her former enemy?
Zahara, a jinn who’d rather go shopping than haunting, is back in the human world enjoying cool fashion, hot cars, and hotter men—anything to avoid obsessing over Harut, the fallen angel who saved her life and stole her heart in Morocco. Besides, her usually disapproving mother has given her an important quest: find and protect a half-human cousin who’s gained strange new magical powers.
Jo Bianchi adores fixing cars, country music, and her Iranian-American girlfriend, Parisa. Even after Harut saves her life when she’s attacked by a magical bird from Persian legend, and Zahara pops in to talk her into an out-of-this-world family reunion, Jo doesn’t want to believe she’s been marked for death because of a cursed gift, or that she and her girlfriend’s supernatural relatives are bitter enemies.
As battle lines are drawn between magical tribes, Zahara’s forced to choose between her family and her feelings for Harut, while Jo is stunned to discover she and Parisa are on opposite sides. And while the fighting rages, a far greater threat to them all is waiting to be unleashed…
BOOK THREE: PRICE TO PAY
She’s gone from party girl of the paranormal to the world’s best hope against a deadly fallen angel.
Zahara‘s tired of saving the world from imminent doom, and her enemy to almost-lover Harut’s “no hanky-panky before marriage” rule is driving her crazy. To take the fight to his evil brother Marut, Zahara returns to the land of the jinn to cobble together an alliance between the peoples of the Mountains of Qaf to defeat the fallen angel. Everything that can’t go wrong does anyway, and after dealing with a malfunctioning magic carpet and killer unicorns, Zahara has to steal back an enchanted feather from a feared necromancer and face down the father she’s never known.
As more of the jinn join Marut in his plan to destroy humanity, Zahara needs Harut’s help more than ever—to save the world and her heart. But when the final confrontation comes, defeating one brother may mean Zahara loses the other forever.
