Sheikh Hakim has finally found a woman to call his Princess. All until he makes a shocking discovery, and one that threatens to tear them apart, as age-old rivalries are rekindled; soon the question of Anita’s true identity can’t be ignored, and the revelation will change her life forever. Could Hakim’s so-called Princess be someone so much more dangerous than a mere waitress? And will they both be willing to give up everything, just to be together?
