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. He kidnaps her, and takes into the desert and awakens her passion ans sexual desires she didn't know she felt. Its a great read and takes you on a exiting adventure.
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.
It's a Lindsay...woman finds love with a desert sheik
It is a very good book, it keeps ya turning the pages until the end.
She writes great and there is humor and suspense and all the stuff that makes a good book.
Definately recommend this to all who like historical romance. If you never read any from this uthor I highly recommend ALL her books!
Christina Wakefield was willful, then she met a desert sheik that changed everything.
I'm not a big fan of romance novels, but my cousin told me to read it since it had Arab characters and I'm sort of an Arabic language and culture enthusiast and it was actually a really good story.
Don't Miss This Book - great reading.
Excellent, if not entirely believable story, interesting characters, a nice fairy tale type story.
Loved it - read it twice!!
The call of excitement draws beautiful Christina to the mysterious Arabian desert. But destiny imprisons her in the powerful arms of Sheik Abu-the handsome and arrogant adventurer she had known in England as Philip Caxton. I was a really good read.
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.
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.
Oh my, this was one of the lamest books ever! I was rolling my eyes the whole time. The premise had promise, so I was so disappointed with how she worked it out. I'm hoping this was her very first book, since I love the Mallory series.
The irresistible call of adventure brings lovely Christina Wakefield to the alluring Arabian desert. But fate imprisons her after she encounters Sheik Abu, the strikingly handsome though arrogant adventurer, whom she had known in England as Philip Caxton.
Once Christina had rejected Philip's fervent offer of marriage. But now she is to be his slave--desperate for the freedoms denied her...yet weakened by her heart's blazing desire to willing explore her virile captor's most sensuous cravings.
I have not read this book in awhile but it was on my keep shelf so it bound to have been a book I wished to read again like all of Johanna's book I have read sure it was an excellent read
