A good read. It has it all.A young lady, who has been raised by her brother and wants some adventure, gets it. She meets a man in England, who is very handsome, but she rejects. But he wants her and what he wants he gets. He is a sheik of the desert and is also a very wealthy English man.

I haven't read much by Johanna Lindsey, but this is my favorite of her books so far. The characters are likeable, and the plot kept me interested and amused. I didn't get swept away by the sexual chemistry between Christina and Phillip, but I still enjoyed the read--I even thought about keeping this one and reading it again, but I've got too many other books I want to read right now. :)

I have all her books in hard back but 2, There is nothing better on a rainy night than a warm cosy fire and a Johanna Lidsey Book. They are must reads all of them over and over again.

Really good love story w. a happy-ever-after ending!
Not a traditional story in any sense, but intriging &
suspenseful. Hero & Heroine have to endure quite alot
& work really hard to end up together in the end.

It's a great story. Of course it's been done before. At least as far back as the silent movies when Rudolf Valentino made The Sheik. But it launched Lindsey's career and is still my favorite of her books.
