The Sheikh, The Shamrock & The Golden Triangle

Sheikhs of the Golden Triangle SeriesBy Gemma Juliana

The Sheikh's SpyIn The Sheikh’s Spy, you’ll meet Sheikh Adnan bin al Ramayad, the passionate, duty-bound ruler of Zahiria. His royal palace rests high on a hill, overlooking the city and the jewel-like blue of the Mediterranean Sea.Most of his land is desert, its golden sands warmed by solar rays as they blaze down all day. At night the sands release their warmth. A chill breeze, infused with the scents of flowers and the sea, blows across the land.

At the eastern edge of his kingdom lies Oasis Alb, or, Oasis of the Heart. Beyond stretch the sands of the magical Golden Triangle, in magnificent shades of pink, red and intense gold.

The Golden Triangle is home to a powerful fire spirit, and is shared by all four kingdoms of the region. It represents unity amid enmity.

So what do shamrocks have to do with all this?

Sheikh Adnan’s ancient bloodline includes the blood of foreign brides who married into Zahiria over the centuries. His inheritance includes homes in many faraway lands.

One such exotic jewel in the Zahirian crown is the mysterious estate known as Winterthorne Castle, not far from the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Ireland.

Christmas SpiritsAdnan’s ancestor, Anna O’Cleary, brought this magnificent estate into the family when she fell in love with Sheikh Khazan. Their undying love affair transcends death, a story that will surely touch your heart, in Christmas Spirits.

Shamrocks and four-leaf clovers abound in the ancient oak forest, the fields, and even within the stone circle.

But Anna’s blood is not the only Irish blood that runs through Adnan’s veins. There is a deeper, darker Irish blood blended with it, one that harbors secrets and pain.

Sheikh Adnan is also descended from Oonagh, the powerful Celtic witch who created the enchanted sapphire amulet that lies at the root of the treachery plaguing the region.

You’ll read about Oonagh, and the wars, greed and deceptions triggered by the magical amulet sapphire, in The Amulet.

    I think it’s really clever to mix Sheiks and Ireland. I downloaded your book Christmas Spirits from Amazon Prime. I just love stories like that! That was an awesome twist at the end and I was blown away to go back and read the story again to realize just how many clues I missed. I hope you write more like this one!

    • Satchmo says:

      I wanted to say this as well. When I saw “Sheikh Adnan is also descended from Oonagh, the powerful Celtic witch”, I thought it was something I never encountered before.

    • Gemma Juliana says:

      Hi Faith,

      Thanks so much for your comment on Christmas Spirits, it made my day!
      I have another story with a similar idea in mind, so thanks for the encouragement. More stories coming soon!
      Enjoy the blog hopping, and good luck!

    I love how you tied the theme of this blog into your stories. The Arabianesque/Irish connection is completely convincing. Thank you! I love blog hops, but if I have to answer another question about whether or not I’m “lucky in love,” I will run away to Zahiria.

  48. Meghan Stith says:

    What a great giveaway hop! I have yet to be lucky in love but I’m working on it. My favorite love book is “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is amazing and beautiful. I enjoy St. Patty’s Day and this year I’m spending it with my best friend. We’re going to two Irish Pubs and also some dance clubs. I am also wearing green and am not a fan of getting pinched. I’m not Irish either, but many people think I am because my hair is red, my eyes green and my name is Meghan, but I’m not at all. I won’t be telling anybody that, however… let them believe I’m Irish.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
