From the Shifting Sands of Egypt....
The Gold Arrow was the most coveted prize of the desert's fierce Bedouin tribes, but it was a disgrace for the prince's beautiful sister to claim it by out-riding and out-shooting her male competition. When the sheik despaired of finding her a husband, Adhania vowed, "I shall show you that I can please a man," and proceeded to inflame all viewers by disquising herself as a dancing girl. What choice did her brother have but to send her off to Queen Cleopatra for a change of scene and lessons in decorum?

To the Treacherous Streets of Rome...
Tribune Marcellus Valerius, Caesar's Master Architect, had witnessed Adhania's sultry display, been intrigued by her daring and entranced by her soft skin and the unforgettable scent of jasmine. In the city of his birth where scandal, intrigue and danger were a way of life, the lovely young Egyptian seemed instantly at home. But caught between Caesar and Cleopatra, she soon needed rescuing and to learn that Marcellus knew best of all how to please his woman.

Loved this book. Who could resist Valerius and what a heroine she about drove her brother crazy. I like a woman that knows how to show up a man and draw him under her spell at the same time.
