Ella I don’t know what I want to do with my life. My parents have plans for me, but I reject all of them, including the ex-boyfriend they want me to get back with. I want nothing to do with the elitist life my family lives on Capitol Hill or the one they want me to adopt. Feeling worthless and lost, I stumbled upon an opportunity that could change everything and give me purpose. The thing is, it’s on the other side of the world in Amman, Jordan. My parents dismiss the idea, saying it’s a risk and idiotic. All I see is the chance to escape my aimless life in search of one with true meaning and purpose. A chance I’m taking with or without my family’s approval. Before I leave, my older sister demands I attend a party with her. A party packed with the superficial mentality I’m trying to escape, and my ex-boyfriend. Then I see him. Fiery, amber eyes set me ablaze from across the room. Seconds feel like an eternity in his gaze. But as hard and fast he’s entrapped me in it, I’m freed and he’s gone. As gone as I’ll be tomorrow when I escape this place for the Middle East. Raj My royal duties have brought me back to Jordan from the U.S. As my older half-brother continues to make poor decisions, my father has turned to me to take over as heir to the throne. The Syrian refugee occupation in Jordan has brought terror to my country. We’ve built a safe haven for refugees seeking shelter from a war threatening our borders. My half-brother rejects our cause, warning me to end a worthless venture, but I believe in the mission too much to let it go. I shouldn’t have been at the facility the day it was bombed. But if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t have saved the woman with the ocean eyes I drowned in once before at a crowded party in D.C. Eyes I’ll happily drown in a thousand times over for as long as I can. No matter the risk. *Intended for readers 18+ due to explicit language and sexual content. Reader discretion is advised.
