Ye Gods! Even a splitting headache couldn't hold me back from reading this book once I started it! After two days of reading, with hardly a minute's break to eat and sleep, I finished this book, only to feel completely empty: what was I going to read next? Nothing could live up to the standards set by this book!
Okay, it's hardly a book of traditional love (i.e., she meets he, instant love, little hiccup in relationship, happy ending...etc) and if you're after some erotic, steamy sex scenes described in any detail, this book will not satisfy you, but for those who like a little to be left to the imagination and some mystery, then Diana's story of eventual love and passion for and with Ahmed Ben Hassan ('The Sheik') is the book for you!
It follows the boyish Diane's journey into the desert with her caravan, up until the point when they are fired at by an approaching caravan. From then on, it's just Diane, Ahmed and a couple of his friends.
Ahmed's luxurious tent (yes, I did say LUXURIOUS tent)is the setting for nights of passionate love making...or rape, as it is to begin with, until Diane falls in love with Ahmed. All she has to do now is hope he falls in love with her, but will her wish come true? Methinks that the kidnapping of the story's heroine by an enemy of Ahmed's will help out the truth his feelings for her, and about his history too!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's excellent, but don't take my word for it!- read it yourself! Believe me when I say, it is well worth spending your money on a copy of this book!
