The Sheikh and the Virgin
by Kim Lawrence Prince
Tariq Al Kamal furiously forbids his brother to marry an unsuitable woman. Then Tariq whisks Beatrice away to his desert home where he becomes intent on seducing her. What he doesn't realize is she isn't his brother's intended—she's an innocent who's about to become his bride!
Kept for the Sheikh's Pleasure
by Lynn Raye Harris
King Zafir bin Rashid al-Khalifa does not care for surprises. Especially ones that involve the reappearance of his ex, Dr. Genie Gray! Now Zafir has the power to make all the rules—and what he wants is a willing Genie in his bed....
Zafir is my first sheikh. He’s as gorgeous and ruthless as you would expect a sheikh to be. But he’s also deeply emotional, and he’s been hurt before. When his ex-lover crashes into his life after ten years, he finds that he can’t quite let her go. Not without tasting her one more time.
Dr. Geneva Gray is an archaeologist who once loved a prince of the desert, but who walked away when she realized they could never be together in the way she wanted. Now, she’s been captured and given to Zafir as a gift—and the feelings she once pushed away are demanding to be dealt with before she can leave him a second time.
Naturally, nothing is as simple as either of them hope it will be. There's a rocky road on the way to that happy end.
I find the dynamics of reunions fascinating. Why didn't it work out in the past? How have the characters grown in such a way that they are capable of dealing with what didn't work before? How can they possibly make it work now? Do they need to be different people, or simply more mature than they once were? The possibilities are endless.
I hope you enjoy this reunion tale! There's a hot desert setting, a fabulous and opulent palace, and some serious steaminess as these two give love another chance.
Do you think it's possible to reunite with an old love and have it be even better than it was before? Or is that a tale best saved for romance novels?
