Houston investment analyst Maggie Barton leaves Texas to work in Qawi as the personal assistant to the ruling Sheikh. On the way over, Maggie accompanied by her best friend Gretchen Brannon stop for a short vacation in Tangiers. However, after only one day in Africa, Maggie learns that her beloved Cord Romero was severely injured in an accident. Although she believes Cord will never love her, Maggie needs to return home to help him recover. Maggie tries to persuade a doubting Gretchen to continue on to Qawi and take her job.

Still in Tangiers, Gretchen accidentally runs into a handsome man, who enjoys her enthusiasm and gusto. He turns out to be Maggie's new employer Sheikh Philippe Sabon, who sees the ardent American as an answer to one of his problems. Both hide the truth from one another, but soon fall in love, leaving each one worrying over what will happen to their relationship without the foundation of veracity.


Best-selling author Diana Palmer provides her fans with a heated contemporary desert romance. The story line is fast-paced, but requires leaps of faith. Gretchen is a warm heroine and Philippe is a hunk of the highest order. The secondary cast adds depth that brings Mediterranean Africa and the Middle East to life. Although not one of Ms. Palmer's better novels, fans of Middle East romances will delight in LORD OF THE DESERT.

Sheltered small town girl Gretchen Brannon was out of her element when she aligned herself with Sheikh Philippe Sabon, the formidable ruler of Qawi. They came from different worlds, yet she found a soul mate in the powerful, sensual man who'd suppressed his passions for far too long-and harbored a secret anguish. Nevertheless, he made the virtuous young woman aware of her own courage...and, in turn, she aroused his sleeping sensesas no other woman could.
However, now that Gretchen's heart belonged to the Lord of the Desert, danger loomed when she became the target for vengeance by the sheikh's most diabolical enemy. In a final showdown that would pit good against evil, could love and destiny triumph...?

This was a pretty good book, although a little uncomfortable in some areas. The hero is supposed to be ruthless, impotent and unable to father children. Two of those things are proven untrue along the way.

I think this book is part of a series and I have no idea where it falls in the set. I read Maggie and Cord's story last year (although I think it is more recent than this one). Enjoyed this one more.

Convinced to take Maggie Barton's job in Qawi after she flies home to her injured stepbrother, shy Gretchen Brannon never expected to find love and danger. Prince Philippe Sabon had felt nothing sexually for nine years, the result of a landmine that horribly injured him. Then came Gretchen with her innocent delight in all she sees. Their love leads to danger from Philippe's most dangerous enemy.
Thank you, Diana, for giving Philippe his miracle and happy ending. Fast-paced action and vibrant descriptions make for an enjoyable read. Old and new friends weave in and out of the story, some of whom required serious memory jogging. Gretchen is just the woman for Philippe, even if he did try to sabotogue his own happiness.

The dialoque is charming the characters are likable and the sex sizzles. Sun Sand and a Sheik what more can a gal want?
