No emotion or feelings are allowed to color the judgement of Sheikh Zafir, his carnal desires must be curbed for the sake of peace in his kingdom. But his control is tested beyond it's limits by the feisty Fern Davenport, he must have her !
Innocent Fern Davenport tries to resit the Sheikh's skillful seduction, she knows he can never marry her. But under the blistering sun an incendiary thirst awakens and one incredible night results in a very lasting consequence. Now the disgraced Sheikh must claim his heir and his bride!
This was a very nice easy flowing read with great and realistic characters. A wonderful plot with some really interesting twits and turns that I expected from the author, as she does the whole twisting and turning thing in many of her reads, but what surprised me is that it was not the twists and turns I thought it would be, I would expect one thing to happen and completely the opposite would happen, absolutely fabulous work Dani!
I felt really sorry for the character of Zafir, giving up what you want is never easy, it 's even harder if you have to give it up simply because it's what your country expects of you, and far worse when it's something that has become a vital part to your existence. So when the author let Zafir stand up and take a leap towards pulling an already complicated relationship to some form of normality , I really admired this hero. Through this character the author showed that sometimes pushing just a little harder than usual can have the end results needed towards the first step to freedom.
Fern was a very kind and sweet heroine, think white puffy clouds and sweet strawberry ice-cream, yes she had all those sugar coatings needed to me her a very likable heroine. Of course she had her very own set of issues , but instead of making seem like one of those " sweet, kind and shy yet a little too innocent to the extent that she cannot stand up for herself" kind of heroine, which quite frankly I have never cared for, she was the opposite. A strong yet kind heroine, not too shy to be pushed around and smart enough to 'nail' Zafir when he most needed to be given a bit of a slap. Through this character the author showed that the innocent are only innocent until the they are pushed too far, that's when they start fighting back and the results is a person that can never be forgotten or easily trampled to the ground.
I recommend this read for all fans of Dani Collins books, it was sinfully sexy and took me on a incredible journey of love conquering all.

" He wants her, she wants him, but can they prove to the world that they truly need each other?"
