The Price of Freedom by Jennie Schwartz

The Price of Freedom by Jenny Schwartz
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Duty will bring them together-and tear them apart!

As a guardian angel, Mischa must protect the one man who may be able to bring about lasting peace to the Middle East. As a djinni, Rafe must fulfill the wishes of a terrorist leader. Their duties colliding, Mischa and Rafe become foes, but the heat between them is undeniable.

When the terrorist learns that a guardian angel stands between him and his greatest wish, he orders his djinni to remove her. Taking creative license, Rafe spirits her away to his private oasis, where she will be unable to protect the peacemaker.

Beyond their mutual desire, they find common ground in honor and loneliness. Passion quickly grows into love. But it’s soon clear to Rafe that love cannot be bound, and Mischa must be true to her life’s purpose. Even if Rafe must sacrifice his own taste of freedom to grant hers…

I reviewed The Price of Freedom for NetGalley.  It’s a story about the choices we make and the consequences of free will.  Mischa is a guardian angel who is charged with protecting human kind.  Rafe is a djinni commanded to kill Mischa because she kept him from killing Ilias, the one man that can bring peace to the Middle East.

Rafe has been alone all his life, tied to his bottle.  He has served hundreds of “masters” but over the years he has learned how to manipulate his masters so the consequences of their actions are diminished.  He is commanded to kill Mischa but instead he whisks her away to his desert oasis to keep her for himself.  He is tired of being alone and wants someone to love him, for who he is, not what wishes he can grant. 

During their time in the Oasis he realizes that even though Mischa loves him and enjoys being with him, something in her life is missing.  He uses his talent as a Djinni to get her to make him a promise that will let her go about her guardian duties but still keep he safe.  What she doesn’t realize is that promise will cost her Rafe.

Rafe made the decision to set her free because of his love for her.  He knew what the consequences would be for that decision.  As the story progresses, it is up to Mischa to keep that promise, no matter how hard it is for her.  She cannot interfere in Ilias life, even though he ends up with Rafe’s bottle.

In the end because of the choices they made and the things they gave up because of those choices, true love prevailed.  I give this book 3½ flaming hearts.
