Homeland Security Special Agent Eliana Solomon is on a mission to prevent terrorist attacks. Hard enough to do when the threats are human, almost impossible when it's an evil, shape shifting jinni. Eliana needs help so she calls the sexy and beguiling psychiatrist, Arta Shahani. However, no matter how good he is at his job, the man is on her blacklist. On their last case together, the guy left her for dead.
Arta is stunned when he receives Eliana’s call. Forced to abandon the woman he loves, he now fears she won’t accept his shape-shifting skills as a Persian Lion. Eliana, in the meantime discovers she is a direct descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba with special powers of her own. But will her skill and Arta's be enough to defeat the jinni, or will they lose the love history decreed for them as well as their lives in this battle of good versus evil?

What is your name? Do you have a nickname?
My name is Makeda. I am the Queen of Sheba, the country you now know as Ethiopia.
What is your hair color? Eye color?
My hair is black and curly, like my father’s. My eyes are green like my mother’s.

I was born in 985 B.C.E. I ascended the throne of Sheba at the age of 15 and travelled to find wisdom and meet King Solomon at the age of 18.
Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you currently call home?
I was born in Aksum, Sheba (Ethiopia). I lived in Jerusalem for a year and am now back at home in Aksum.
Who are the people you are closest to?
My uncle is my closest older relative. My best friend since childhood is Tamrin. He is a wealthy merchant and travels a lot, so I don’t get to see him as often as I did growing up.
What is your most treasured possession?
My son, Menelik, is my most treasured possession—as much as one can own a child. He has his own mind and is growing up fast. He wears me down with questions about his father.
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
There is only one man for me, the wisest ruler king of all, King Solomon. When I met him, all my breath went out of me.

The trip to Jerusalem seeking wisdom and meeting the love of my life. That was my favorite journey. The return home, however, was fraught with betrayals and danger.
What is your greatest regret?
My only regret is that I could not stay with Solomon. I often wonder what life would have been with him at my side. My country and duty called, however. I had to leave him. It broke my heart.
What is the quality you most like in a man/woman?
Wisdom. I longed for wisdom to be a good ruler and found it in my true love.
