Once I started reading this book I gobbled it up in no time. This is truly a wonderful story of two lost and lonely people finding and healing each others wounded souls. Graham Tristan has a secret he can't tell anyone. Abused as a child, he doesn't believe he is deserving of love. Jillian, the heroine, has been kept under strict control all her life. It isn't until she meets Graham and he encourages her to be her true self that she really begins to live. Much of this book takes place in Eygpt and the author does a wonderful job of portraying the exotic local. This is simply a wonderful book!
The third book of the series, which completes the stories of the English/Arab adventures of 3 warriors of the wind.
Not your typical historical romance. I loved the book.
While the Bedouin invaders held him captive, they also made young Graham Tristan watch as they brutally murder his parents. He vows one day to avenge what these cruel killers did to his family. Over the years he worked at achieving his goal until now he is known as the fiercest warrior of the desert, The Panther even though he rides with powerful courageous fighters as part of the Warriors of the Wind.
However, the time to return to England has arrived so he goes home to become the Duke of Caldwell. The drams he began having in the desert of meeting a red haired green eyed termagant continue until he meets his vision in the flesh in a brothel. Lady Jillian plans to lose her virginity so her father cannot sell her to the highest bidder, an odious person. However, as the two virgins make love, passion ignites them to an even higher plane. Already in love with his vixen, Graham demands they marry, which she agrees to as she returns his feelings. As a married couple they head back to Egypt where treasure or his nightmare youth await them.
The fourth late nineteenth century Egyptian romance is an exciting action-packed thriller starring a fine coupling as he is more Egyptian than English aristocrat while she is a daughter of the Ton making for a delightful pairing starting with their first sizzling encounter in the brothel and never slowing down. Though Jillian is too typical of the sub-genre, fans of historical adventure romantic epics will want to read this quality tale and its exciting predecessors (see THE FALCON AND THE DOVE, THE TIGER AND THE TOMB, and THE COBRA AND THE CONCUBINE).
Graham Tristan had been tormented too long. For years he had lived in fear. He was physically strong, during his childhold exile, he had ridden with Khamsin--egyptian Warriors of the Wind. He learned their code, been called The Panther. Now he was returned to his rightful place as the Duke of Caldwell. But still he feared. And there was a new face that haunted his dreams. It was the face of a woman.
Raised in Egypt, the son of an English lord returns to London for revenge but instead finds love when he meets an enchanting beauty in a brothel.
Graham Tristan, exiled as a child, rode with the Khamsin (Egyptian Warriors of the Wind). His childhood filled with terrible memories. Things done to him....things he was forced to do. Now the Duke of Caldwell, fear is still with him. Now a women has invaded his dreams. A beautiful women with red hair and green eyes. Could she invade his heart? Could she uncover the secrets he has fought so hard to keep hidden?
I was not aware from the description on the back of the book that it also deals with the fact that the main character of the story, Graham Tristan was sexually abused as a child.
It is a good book but may due to some of the subject matter be a little off-putting to some people.
Graham Tristan has ridden with Khamsin Egyptian Warriers of the Wind. He learned their code, been called the Panther but now he has been returned to his rightful place as the Duke of Caldwell. There he is haunted by the face of a woman. Red hair, the color of blood, green eyes, the color of emeralds and the memory threatenes the consume him.
