In a realm of burning sand and scorching sun…
Relentless warrior Sultan Kuramos has never faced a battle he couldn’t win—until now. His famed skills with a scimitar can’t defend his realm against a deadly epidemic. Not even his best physicians can defeat the scourge. To save his people, he’ll do something he’s never done before—bend his pride and seek aid from the magical Royal Healer of his greatest enemy.
Healer Varene has heard of the Sultan. Who hasn’t? The enmity between his realm and hers is the stuff of legend. And, despite his people’s fierce condemnation of magic, she doesn’t hesitate to aid them. She is prepared for the sultan’s well-known arrogance—but not for his courage, his subtle kindnesses, nor his selfless care of the ill. But some in his realm are displeased with her presence. The arrival of the “heathen sorceress” ignites a ruthless plot to overthrow him and nearly gets her burned at the stake.
As they work side by side to find the cure, Kuramos’s fierce protection of Varene gains her trust, then her respect, and then an emotion neither dares to admit—love. Kuramos is determined to keep the one woman who speaks to his soul, whatever the cost. But how can either relinquish their homeland and their principles to be together? Especially since the patients Varene has been healing are Kuramos’s wives….
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Once the story started rolling along I was hooked! Strong characters, with good descriptions and back stories. Highly recommend this read, well done Cate Rowan!
This book was extremely well-written. While the subject – multiple wives in a harem setting – was one I find repulsive, Cate Rowan really made this work! The fact that she could do this was really impressive and thought provoking. This was a great book, one not to miss.
Kismet’s Kiss is a fantastic story of foreign, exotic lands, proud cultures, and characters you’ll remember for days to come. And best of all, the romance! Overall, it was one of the most enjoyable and well written books I’ve read. I’m very anxious for the next Cate Rowan book!
Exquisite, enthralling, enchanting, marvelous, tingling, unique, masterpiece. The pages are blazing! They are colorful, vivid and tingling. I don’t want to spoil a thing! It was so unique. It was fun, hot and sparkling!
Incorporating magic, espionage, betrayal, love and family, Kismet’s Kiss is a keeper. I found the heroine likable and believable, the hero deliciously tall, dark and sensual and the whole world well thought out. I will definitely look forward to more titles from this author, and hopefully in this series. I’d love to see more in this setting.

Cate has washed laundry in a crocodile-infested African lake, parasailed over a Mexican beach, swum with dolphins in the Florida Keys and had Costa Rican monkeys poop in her hair, but her favorite adventures are in story worlds. Her lush fantasy romances about magical deeds, kismet and true love in realms near and far have won more than thirty awards.
When Cate’s elementary school teachers assigned creative writing projects, writing became a force in her life. She wrote through high school, particularly when bored in class. (Rumor has it those early pages consisted of fantasies about Duran Duran, but she is silent on the issue and keeps those notebooks from prying eyes.)
She put fiction aside to earn a Ph.D.–but her muse, even while stuffed in a dark closet, never shut up. Now she and her muse and her story people get to play every day. (There might be strawberry mojitos involved, but again, she’s not saying.)
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Cate Rowan and ENT appreciate it.
