Review by Nas
STRANGERS IN THE DESERT by Lynn Raye Harris is a Mills & Boon Modern and a Harlequin Presents release.
Desert King Sheikh Adan was preparing for his upcoming nuptials when he gets information that his wife may be alive. Cancelling all his appointments he flies to a small Island and finds her singing in a bar!
He is outraged. And brings her back with him to his desert kingdom. Why did Isabella Maro leave her husband and a two year old son to go and sing in a bar?
When Isabella meets her two year old son, she knows for certain that she’ll never be able to leave him and go again. Yet Adan wants to divorce Isabella so that he can proceed with his marriage preparations. Now that Isabella and his precious son had bonded, can he split them apart? What about the electrifying attraction between Adan and Isabella? When he had married her, she was an innocent and simple girl with nothing remarkable about her. Yet, now she was a sultry, seductive woman who makes Adan’s pulse rage just by looking at her!
STRANGERS IN THE DESERT is a romance packed with sizzle and sexual tension. This breath-taking story deals with the effect of post-natal depression on unrequited love resulting in amnesia. Add in a hot desert Sheikh and readers won’t be able to help themselves from flipping the pages late into the night. It is an exciting premise altogether and the story keeps you involved from the first page. I had to restrain myself from turning to the last pages to know the ‘why’ and ‘how’ Isabella had left!
Lynne Raye Harris sure knows how to keep readers engaged from the first chapter by her story-telling. She showed warmth and sensitivity while touching on the subject of post-natal depression. Along with a woman building back her loss of self-confidence after being brought up to be subservient is heart-touchingly written.
