THE DESERT LORD'S BABY - OLIVIA GATES
Why it's taken me so long to read an Olivia Gates book I'm not sure but never again will I wait as this writer has talent beyond description. This Silhouette Desire from the Throne of Judar series was one of the most passionate and truly dazzling love story I've read in a long time.
From the very first chapter you realize Carmen and Sheikh Farooq have a very intense relationship which in every way intimacy binds them together. Farooq cannot get enough of Carmen but she's no fool because she realizes she only has weeks with this desert prince for he will leave her and return to Jadar without her. Then she realizes she's expecting a baby and in order to run and hide from him, breaks up with him leading him to believe she's over him.
The months that pass are agonizing for them both. Carmen is feeling safe now that 9 months have passed and Forooq has not found her. Then everything changes and he finds out that he has a daughter and is determined to take mother and child back to Jadar. Farooq also has been led to believe that Carmen betrayed him so add many emotions to the mix; intense desire, anger, lust and turmoil.
Prepare yourself for a very intense read with intimacies revealed which will take your breath away. For Carmen and Farooq their passion steams off the pages and the ending will have you weeping for sure as Olivia Gates delivers her brilliant tale of passion, forgiveness and true love.
There was nowhere Carmen could hide from this prince of Judar. No stone he wouldn't turn to find her, no wall he couldn't tear down. Nothing would stop Farooq Aal Masood from claiming the mother of his baby. She had betrayed him. And she would pay. In his bed. As his wife...until he tired of her. And though Carmen professed to love him, that it was all a misunderstanding, well...Farooq would never fall for her lies again
SHEIK PROTECTOR - Dana Marton
Sheik Karim Adbullah is called the “Dark Sheik” and it’s no wonder, not just his physical appearance which include multiple scars, a facial scar on his eye which had made him blind and additional scars mainly on his back. His identical twin has been intentionally killed and now he finds that he’s not only faced with finding his killer; plus a woman his brother met in he US claims his twin is the father of her unborn child.
Everything within days change; the pregnancy, his attraction to her, finding his brother’s killer and now his enemies want the woman and Karim dead.
Their journey is full of action, turmoil, danger, sexual attraction and mystery. On top of everything else, coupled with the danger, their attraction leaps off of the pages of this book and just reading about the “dark sheikh” softening and falling for Julia is very sweet and romantic.
What I loved about this particular sheikh story was it was honour bound not just Karim the born sheikh but the lovely Julia who was abandoned at a young age, raised in foster care and who had a definite need to belong. In the end, her sense of honour shines in this very lovely romantic love story. Again Dana Marton “dazzles” her readers with her Sheik Protector.
Proud, imperious and leery of pretenders to the throne, Sheik Karim Abdullah saw Julia Gardner as just another gold digger. The American claimed to be carrying his dead twin's child, so the Dark Sheik decreed she remain his palace "guest" until paternity was established.
But the rebellious Julia proved as dangerous to Karim as the assassins stalking him. Her fi erce need to safeguard her baby turned the sheik into a protective lover. And the wounded warrior vowed to savor the moment…then walk away before he jeopardized her safety.…
