He is not supposed to love.

The nature of his being makes it nearly impossible.  And the cult of genies he belongs to forbids it.

Opera diva Teresa McMillan has an obsessed fan hot on her trail and he chases her around the world just to get the opportunity to be with her — believing her to be his lost love from many lifetimes ago.

Although Ali Rahman knows that he shouldn’t envelop this woman in his dark world, he can’t stand the thought of losing her, again. Barnes & Noble Google Books Nubian Bookstore MEDU Bookstore


There is a man living among us who is an abomination.

Ali summoned a genie many centuries ago and sold his soul to it, allowing the genie to take over his body in exchange for riches, good looks and an extension on his life. Also, in this exchange, he gave up emotions such as love; but, his cold-heartedness doesn’t really matter since he keeps a low profile. The females he dates dismiss him as a womanizer, but he’s actually masking the fact that he’s a soulless human.

Now, into his life comes this woman that he thinks is the most gorgeous woman he’s ever seen — both physically and spiritually — and he wants her – badly. Guess what? She is unavailable in every way imaginable. One, she’s preoccupied with her career as a celebrity. Two, she’s in a committed relationship. Three, she simply doesn’t give a damn about him.

How does he get this beautiful woman to want him the way he wants her without seeming like a home-wrecking, creepy lunatic? And how does this handsome creature keep her without revealing that he is a heartless, accursed individual on the path to hell?

The Story

Is he an obsessed fan or a jilted ex? Just who is Ali Abdur Rahman?

Brace yourself for a supernatural thriller in which a genie makes its way to  a famous celebrity's doorstep disguised as a gorgeous, irresistible stranger.

Key Characters

Teresa (Zodiac - Libra) is the star of the novel, in terms of her being the main character and literally an opera star. Despite her fame in the world of opera, she has always considered herself a very ordinary woman and her private life is far more simple than anyone would believe a celebrity's life would be. This changes when Ali Abdur Rahman comes into her life.

Ali Abdur Rahman (Zodiac - Pisces) is an Egyptian business tycoon that lives a very lavish lifestyle. He is a ladies' man in every sense of the word and commitment isn't his thing. He's a love 'em and leave 'em type not because he is a low down, dirty scoundrel. He is harboring a dark secret from his past that can't be known to anyone; but, his obsession with Teresa McMillan threatens to let the secret out.

Anwar Mamluk (Zodiac - Scorpio) is a former Turkish mercenary turned business tycoon. Like Ali Rahman he's a ladies' man that enjoys all the pleasures of life and won't compromise that for anyone, especially not for a woman. He and his other co-leader, Chi Khan, find that they have to keep their brother Ali in line with their cult rules more than they should have to. They are on a mission to save him from the base desire of love that is an emotion that none of them should engage in anyway.

Chi Khan
Chi Khan (Zodiac - Sagittarius) is a Mongol spy and fighter turned business tycoon. Like his fellow cult co-leaders, Ali Rahman and Anwar Mamluk, he is also a ladies' man. He's the more fashion conscious of all three of them. He loves the Asian fashion scene and definitely loves western culture. Most of his wealth comes from the fashion industry and electronic commodities. He has a youthful, playful nature but when it comes to his loyalty to the cult, this is no laughing matter.
