5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! 5 March 2014

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grey's Anatomy in Africa! 28 February 2014
By Zee Monodee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
*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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book in exotic locale 17 February 2015
By Nancy Levine "Nancy" - Published on

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, sweet, medical romance 8 May 2014

When Aurora "Ora" Aikins takes a vacation, leaving her fiancé at home, she crosses paths with the handsome Dr. Jason Lartey. Despite their attraction, and the seemingly familiarity between them, Ora pushes the feelings that grow for Jason aside to fulfill her promises to the man she left back home. Years later, with no fiancé and marriage, the two reunite in Ora's hospital, and this time, Jason isn't about to let her get away from him a second time.

First of all, let me just say, I am biased to the name Aurora. I am, like sickeningly so, so the female lead had me caught at her name. Yeah, I'll do that for a character. Moving on ...

I really appreciated how this author brought the characters together, but kept them pure, in their own way. Ora, specifically. While the heroine might have felt she crossed a line during her time with Jason the first go round, I certainly didn't think so. You can't help who you fall in love with, after all. Sometimes love happens in an innocent, unassuming way. That's how it felt with these two. That probably should have been a clue for Ora that this man was meant to be hers, but instead, she took a different route, and ran. It happens. I wanted to proverbially smack her one over it.

And then we have Jason ... without giving anything away, he waited his time out. And then, he did what he had to, to get her back. You have to appreciate a confident man who knows what he wants and goes for it. He got a lot of props from me for that.

I thought the characters had great chemistry. I adored the settings of the book. The author didn't drone on with details, but she kept it alive, nonetheless. I appreciated how the heroine was made work through her issues. Things don't fix themselves in a day--that's not real life. The title confused me for the longest time, but that got itself settled out and I thought it was a cute tie in for the plot, really. If you're looking for a clean romance, and you enjoy the medical aspect, pick this one up and give it a shot.
