A chain of tragic deaths across Dubai spanning two decades. Only Valda knows they were not accidents, but murders. Her name is next on that list. Spunky singer Valda ditches her old life in Cape Town for a new start in glittering Dubai. Armed with just her cigarettes and some attitude, she sets about reigniting her career and putting to bed the heartache over her former boyfriend Richard. Valda does indeed find success, and to her astonishment, love, but all is threatened when she is introduced to a billionaire sheikh. Her clandestine liaison with the sheikh propels her into a murky web of deceit, and when newspaper clippings of seemingly accidental deaths across Dubai are posted anonymously to her, it is clear she is rushing headlong into the same fate. No one dares cross the sheikh and she can hardly hardly turn to the law, so with few options open she confides in Larissa. As an astrologer, Larissa predicts that Valda and the sheikh´s destinies were sealed from the moment of their first meeting; however she keeps the dire fate that she reads in the charts a secret. Lara resolves to help Valda flee Dubai and the ever-tightening grip of the sheikh; but should Valda be putting all her faith in her new friend and guru of the grimoires? Together, Valda and Larissa take a gamble in a game of cosmic Russian roulette where the stakes are their lives, and their adversary, Fate itself. A thoroughly modern cocktail of intrigue, passion, and suspense set against the exotic locales of Cape Town and Dubai with an eclectic mix of characters, a perfect beverage if you like a tangy lemon peel in your drink as this one has a twist at the end too, but you´ll have to listen to discover it. 1.

Gianpierre Romano is being dragged back to Italy by the one thing he can’t escape: family. The Romano fortune and name has followed him wherever he goes - but that only made the headstrong Italian more determined to strike out on his own. Now, he’s on the cusp of achieving international fame for an architectural project in the Middle East when he’s roped into reconstructing the foundation of his family’s resort. It’s a project that Gianpierre has the passion for, but not the time - not if he wants to make it to Dubai for the start date of his dream project. That is until he’s paired with a pretty project manager who makes him want to get passionate about more than just medieval foundations. Luciana Vivaldi rushed to Italy to care for her niece after the death of her sister, and then fell in love with the culture and people. Beautiful and whip smart, she’s been recruited to keep the Romano Resort’s hunky structural engineer focused and to take him to task if he doesn’t follow his own directives. She’s got a passion for organizing and no time for romance - that is until a kiss following a falling foundation has her doing the one thing she can’t afford: falling for her boss. Gianpierre and Luciana don’t have time for distractions, but when a twist of fate - and a brisk housing market - leave them living together, their excuses for staying apart fall as fast as the foundation. The spark they have is more blinding than a Sicilian sunset, but when emotions run deep and careers are on the line will playing house be the foundation for a lifelong love? Or will it all fall like a house of cards? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Connor Brown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/116375/bk_acx0_116375_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
