The discovery of her mother's family in Bha'Khar, a desert kingdom far away from the States, fills her with much wonder and anxiety. As she leaves for Bha'Khar, she is surprised to find a royal jet as well as Sheikh Kardahl, second in line to the throne, waiting for her. To Jessica's amazement, he says, "You are my betrothed, chosen by my family. You are my bride."

Before going into this review, I will mention that I read only the first story. I could not bring myself to read the second after that.

The art is not particularly inconsistent, but it is reminiscent of the early 1990s. I dislike this style, but that is of course a matter of taste.

As far as the premise goes, the story had some potential as a shoujo. However, the story feels exceedingly rushed. We know the characters fall in love because we are told they fall in love. There is absolutely nothing that happens between them to show this developing; other than cheesy lines, there's just one read more
