The Third Wish is a paranormal romance novella that was published by Sapphire Blue Publishing on June 1st, 2009.
A spicy, pleasant odor wafted into Bridget’s nostrils, rousing her. Still groggy, she urged her eyes open, then squeaked in alarm. The strange man knelt next to her, close enough that she could see his amber irises flecked with gold. His mouth was set in a line, his brow slightly furrowed.
Bridget looked around, uncertain, at first, about where she was. Then she remembered. She had slid down against the sandy wall, sitting with her legs stretched out in front of her. Clutching the knife handle, she jerked it up so the sharp blade tip was a few inches from the man’s neck. “Get back.”
He tilted his head and narrowed his eyes. Then he smiled.
“You’re afraid.” His voice had a deep bass timbre that seemed to rise directly from his chest.
Bridget’s stomach flipped. The cadence of his voice was slow and confident, as though he sensed no threat from her. “You’re damn right. Now get back.”
“I’m not going to hurt you. I cannot. But I must help you.” He lifted a hand, and before Bridget could protest, laid it over the wound on her thigh. Bridget gasped. His fingers, cool and smooth, kneaded over the congealed blood, rhythmically tracking back and forth against the sensitive skin of her thigh, reaching under the hem of her cargo shorts and beyond the top of the laceration.
Bridget’s head buzzed. Her mind told her to fight back, flee, resist, do something, but she couldn’t. Paralyzed, as though in a dream, Bridget’s body resisted her urge to move. A heated tingling surged from the stranger’s fingers. He rubbed her leg in a spiral motion, moving upward into the tissue paper skin at the crease of her leg. The tip of his long middle finger skimmed against the cotton crotch of her panties. She drew a sharp intake of breath.
Fallen Angel Reviews
The Third Wish is a very impressive story, filled with plenty of authentic details about the archaeological dig and the social history and the religious beliefs surrounding djinn. As an archaeologist myself, I was impressed by K F Zuzulo's world-building and the depth of her knowledge. Bridget is a wonderfully sympathetic heroine who struggles with her duty, her rationale and her desires, but it's Ash who absolutely rules this book. He's driven and arrogant, yet he changes and begins to learn what it's like to be human. The Third Wish is a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Paranormal Romance Review
Bridget Devine is an archaeologist. On a dig in the Jordan desert she comes across the find of her career, some kind of metal object that resembles an oil lamp. After trying to find a way to open it, she unwittingly unleashes a Jinni named Ashura-Goreem. From the second that she see's Ash she is enthralled by the man, his dark good looks and come hither voice. Not only is he offering any pleasures of her desire, but also three wishes. While she struggles with what she wants, someone from Ash's past returns and she must choose between love or what is right.
This is a very fun take on the Jinni in the bottle! Ash is every woman's wish; tall, strong and knows how to please a girl. Bridget is funny, and I'm very envious of her character. It has a good plot, hot steamy sex scenes and a well worth it read!
