With her father’s failing health, Princess Katherine knows it is up to her to ensure her country is secure with a new ruler.  At an early age, an arranged marriage had been to the Sheik of Hajar; when she hears that him and his parents were killed in an attack her heart goes out to the one lone surviving member, Sheikh Zahir S'ad al Din.


Because of the scars he suffered in the accident that killed his family, Zahir rules his Kingdom from the wall of his castle. He does not want to see the pity of his followers, so he allows them to label him The Beast of Hajar.

Katherine takes matters into her own hands and goes to Hajar to find Zahir, the new Sheik of Hajar. She refuses to turn over her country to a distant relative. When she finds Zahir, hiding away in the darkness of his castle she does not let his scars detour her from her mission to convince him to become her husband.

Zahir admires the beauty that Katherine radiates; her strong will and determination to get her way sheds light into his dark existence. He knows his responsibility to his land includes finding a suitable match. Will the Beauty succeed in tearing down the fortress the Beast has built around his heart?

HAJAR’S HIDDEN LEGACY is an outstanding Beauty and the Beast romance. I instantly fell in love with the strong determination of Katherine to show Zahir that even though he was scarred, they were invisible to the love she was able to show him.  HAJAR’s HIDDEN LEGACY is written with emotional substance that will ensure that reader finishes the last page wanting more. In this reviewer’s opinion, this is the best Beauty and the Beast retelling she has read in some time.
