As the Minstrel of Kaf, the land of the Djinn, Zayne has a critical responsibility to sing harmonious music. However, lately even the beautiful voices of birds irritate Zayne, whose darker moods impact his people and their land. To lighten his mood and learn how to use new magic, he needs his zaniya to blend harmonies, but has not met her though he is older than most of his predecessors when they found their beloved.    He learns her name is Madeline Fairbanks and she resides in New Orleans on Terra. Like a warrior on the hunt, he seeks the enchantment of singing with his soul mate.

When Madeline, who just lost her job due to her fear of public speaking, sees Zayne she thinks he is quite a hunk. However, when he burns toilet paper to forge a protective spell, she believes he is a certifiable hunk. Still the attraction between them is too strong to resist and soon they make love even as they fall in love. However, before they can share a harmonious lifetime together, they must confront her evil stepfather, the warlock who placed the public speaking phobia curse on Madeline.

The fantasy elements make for a good time as readers will believe in magic in the music of this lovin' duo. The romance happens faster than the top sprinters can complete the hundred-yard dash while the characters are a delightful charming group except for the vile cartoonish villain. The romantic fantasy chorus will sing praise to Kathleen Nance for her imaginative tale.
