A spicy, humorous contemporary set in a fictional Middle Eastern country by an author who has lived in the Middle East and has worked as a doula.
She was outrageous—with her ponytail, her jar of semen, and her T-shirt that proclaimed, “Midwife at Your Cervix.”
Layla’s trip to Behruz is meant to be one last adventure before she joins her dreamboat fiance in Texas. But Behruz casts a spell on her. Her knowledge as a midwife is needed there. Serving women’s health in a country where no one talks about “such things” is a challenge.
Majid, an American-trained doctor, is ready to settle down, but because of an old family bias, American women are forbidden to him. That’s no problem until Layla walks into his clinic with a sassy smile, a jar of semen, and a blond fiance back home.
