Forged In The Desert Heat by Maisey Yates

Reviewed by Nas

FORGED IN THE DESERT HEAT by USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates is a December 2013 release by Harlequin Presents.


Analise Christensen was kidnapped and held in the desert. And our gypsy Sheikh Zafar Nejem, who lived the life of a gypsy since his exile rides in and saves her. But he can’t return her yet to the neighboring kingdom where she is engaged to the Sheikh.

He has to keep her in his palace for a while and think up a strategy of returning her without a war breaking out between the neighboring kingdoms. But staying together passion flares between Ana and Zafar. Though Zafar is a man with no heart. Ana is engaged to another, Zafar is a ruler with a single goal of serving his people, would they ever get together? Could they?  

FORGED IN THE DESERT HEAT is fast-paced and has fun dialogue. Can Zafar forget his tumultuous teen years and let Ana in his heart? And letting passionate Ana close to him would ignite the spark which could melt his ruthless heart. Can he do that?

Maisey Yates has delivered a tortured hero, who doesn’t believe in love, a strong feisty heroine, who wouldn’t settle for less, a very believable plot and romance that would enthrall readers and woven a tale that would captivate and mesmerize. 

Highly recommended for all lovers of romance.
