Midwife To Destiny by Nana Prah, is Book One in the Destiny Series and she has begun the series with a fun, entertaining, and sweet romance full of lively & vibrant characters.

The sexual tension between Jason Lartey and Aurora “Ora” Aikins starts on page one when the two meet in South Africa and sets the chapter on fire. Ora is on a solo vacation in Cape Town, her fiancée couldn’t make it, when she hurts her wrist. A nurse, she gets herself to the hospital where the handsome Dr. Lartey treats her injury.

Jason offers to show her the sights and while the heat rises between the two, they both know a romance isn’t possible. While they wish the situation were different, the couple days they spend together are uncomfortably platonic. When it’s time for Ora to leave, both their hearts ache.

Three years pass and Jason shocks Ora when he shows up at the hospital where she works as the new doctor. He hasn’t been able to get Ora out of his mind and decided to move to Ghana to be close to her and try to win her love.

Ora never married her fiancée. But that doesn’t mean Jason has an easy job of wooing her. Ora has deep rooted issues that keep her from committing to anyone, not just Jason.

This was a great story of with two strong messages. Never give up on love and the need to reconcile with your past in order to move forward and be happy in the present. I loved how the Ghanaian culture, traditions, food and fashion were sprinkled throughout the story, making it authentic and interesting while giving the setting an exotic feel.

I have to mention, Esi, Ora’s cousin. She’s a pisser, a force to be reckoned with and had me laughing. While not the protagonist of the story, Esi has a co-starring role and a good one.

Do yourself a favor and grab this book!

Midwife to Destiny is a book set in the exotic location of North-African country, Ghana. Ora is a nurse and meets doctor, Jason while on holiday in South Africa. She's engaged at the time to a man she doesn't love. Jason and her share an immediate, powerful connection which very soon turns to love. But Ora wants to remain committed to her engagement. She breaks it off with Jason before returning to her home country, Ghana. Three years later, Jason moves to Ghana and secures a position at the hospital where Ora works, knowing she's still single and determined to win the heart of the woman he still loves.

Thus begins Jason's very tumultuous challenge in winning over a beautiful, yet troubled Ora.

This story was so touching, tender and steeped with goodness. I loved the natural, real feeling of the characters, settings and plot. Some characters in romances are cardboard cut-outs. These characters are unique, real and deep. I loved reading about how Ora had to face up to her deep-seated fears and pain. I loved the process she went on.

This was a romance with a journey with lifelike characters and scenes. A lovely, sweet romance.

*Disclaimer - I worked on this as Editor*

This one landed in my inbox last year, after a call for African romance that we (me and the peeps at Decadent Publishing) had sent out when the Ubuntu line was launched. So this author I didn't know - but who had been following the progress of the Ubuntu line on the Net! - sent us her manuscript for consideration.

Set in Ghana (win #1), with strong African characters (win #2), the conflict pertinent to the continent (win #3), there's a hop to Cape Town, South Africa (win #4), and the story took place in a popular location for romances, aka a hospital (win #5).

Could anybody say "Grey's Anatomy in Africa!"? I could, and the more I read, the more these characters drew me into their worlds and their issues. What really cinched the deal for me to acquire this book was that Nana Prah did not shy away from throwing extreme conflict at her characters and then forcing them to have to work out through their hang-ups. She never babies them and forces them to face real life like normal, regular people would have to in order to stop merely surviving and getting on the road to thriving.

Should you read this book? Most definitely! Think me biased because this is very much like one of my 'babies' (let's consider me the godmother - it's really Nana's baby!) - Read it and you will see personal pride has nothing to do with me recommending this story.

This is my first book by this author and I know I will be reading more. I loved the depth of Ora, the heroine, and Jason, the hero. I enjoyed following Ora along her journey to reunite with Jason, and I liked the setting--got to go somewhere I've never been. Ora's cousin, Esi, is a hoot--I loved how the "Midwife to Destiny" title got worked into some funny dialogue. I hope Esi will get her own story. I liked Ora's mom and counselor who also helped her on her journey.

This one got to me.

From the beginning, the feelings of loss and regret can be felt. When Ora returns to Ghana after falling in love with Jason after a few short days, those feeling just seem to grow.

A painful childhood plagues Aurora Aikins, and leads her to sabotage any relationships with men. Despite being separated by years and miles, Dr. Jason Lartey can't let go of the deep love he still feels for her, and seeks her out. Their reunion is bittersweet however, because Ora still avoids Jason whenever possible. Jason is determined to woo her, unaware of the pain driving her fears, leading her to resist him.

After getting great advice from her savvy cousin, and clarification on the causes of her fear of commitment from her mother, Ora must admit to some truths about herself that she'd avoided for far too long if she is ever to be truly happy.

I felt Ora was a strong character who maybe put too much emphasis on the opinions of others. Jason was steadfast and true. Knowing he had found the love of his life, there's was nothing he wouldn't do to be with her. Cousin Esi, a midwife, is hilarious and plays a more important part in Ora's future.

Africa and some its culture and traditions are a perfect setting for this heartfelt story. I give "Midwife to Destiny" my highest recommendation.
