LORD OF DESIRE is a wonderful book that includes all the things romance fans will ask for: a powerful, mesmerizing hero (a sheik!) seeking vengeance, a beautiful and feisty heroine held captive, an exotic locale, interesting secondary characters and memorable, hot sex sences. Yeah, I know these elements sound cliched, but when combined and handled so masterfully by Nicole Jordan, they create an arresting tale not to be missed.

En route from France to war-torn Algiers, Alysson Vickery is abducted by Nicholas Sterling, a.k.s. Jafar el-Saleh, an Algerian rebel who holds Alysson's fiance responsible for his parents' death. He then proceeds to carry Alysson away to his camp. Of couse, Alysson, a brave woman she is, continues to fight Jafar and plots her escape whenever possible while Jafar thwarts (nearly) every one of her attempt. Both of them try to outsmart the other and yet there is no denying the powerful attraction between the two. Alysson gradually comes to understand and sympathize with Jafar. And Jafar, tortured though he is, never abuses Alysson. He treats her well and is torn between his desire to revenge and his love for Alysson, an innocent pawn in his deadly plan.........

There are many obstacles that lie between the hero and heroine. Reading about how they transcend all that's seperating them will definitely stir up a mixture of emotions in you--you'll cheer for them, sigh for them, smile with them, and even shed a few tears.......
