This was a good edition to the Elder Races series. It was sweet and the unexpected attraction grew slowly. Khalil was an ancient Djinn that was not experienced with human interaction but strongly attracted to Grace's little niece and nephew that she is raising after her sister and husband were killed in the same accident that injured her. It was touching how his negative judgmental opinion of Grace's parenting skills changed when he realizes the struggles she goes to day to day. Then he becomes protective and her champion as they discover that her misfortune may not be entirely accidental. I've been a little luke warm on the series after the last two, but this one is right up there with the first one that made me love this series.
