Heart of a Desert Warrior was beautifully crafted as it fleshed out the reasons for both Asad and Iris's pain and suffering from the past. Asad knew from the beginning of his "rest of your life" day that he had made a huge mistake, but he sought to correct it after he endured for a while. However, he never knew if Iris would be a forgiving soul or a grudge holder when they meet again in Heart of a Desert Warrior. Neither Asad nor Iris seemed to know how perfect they were for each other given their hard childhoods, but they soon realized it.
Heart of a Desert Warrior did not have Iris giving in too quickly to Asad, either. He had to earn her friendship again. Iris, of course, has other reasons for acquiescing to Asad, and you know how that will play out in Heart of a Desert Warrior. However, it was still fun to watch as she tempted herself as well as Asad.
Heart of a Desert Warrior showed the humanness of both Asad and Iris. Showing that sometimes in a chosen path people make mistakes, but it takes a bigger person to forgive and to ask for that forgiveness. I thoroughly enjoyed that both Asad and Iris filled that role for me in Heart of a Desert Warrior. I was excited that Asad's point of view was established. I could tell that he was extremely sorry for his choices in the past, and that he hoped to right the wrongs once he realized what he had given up for what he thought he wanted. Isn't that how life is anyway? We think we want something when what we really want and need has been there all along :)

Iris thought that she had the upper hand the second time. However her heart refused to listen. Despite her best efforts she felt fast and hard. And it turned out as a good thing. Because the person she's inlove with feels the same way ❤️
I loved this one. I really like Lucy Monroe's Presents novels, and this one is no exception. I felt like that the male lead had learned his lesson from his past, and instead of it making him a complete jerk (like a lot of Presents heroes are), it made him appreciate and love the heroine even more. I understood (but did not agree with) Asad's reasons for leaving Iris, and I was heart broken for both of them. I loved that when the hero finally gets everything he thought he wanted, that he realizes what he had. I also liked the author's stance on virginity. In a lot of Harlequin Presents novels, the heroine's virginity is a short cut for her being a good person. In this novel, Asad realizes that though Iris hadn't been a virgin when they met, she was a woman of honor, integrity and love. I almost cried when I realized he named his daughter after Iris. That was beautiful, and it really brought home how much he loved her and what an idiot he had been to let her go. I also liked how the hero's pride was turned on its head. He wanted to marry the beautiful, virgin princess to prove to everyone that he was not an uneducated goat herder. But after getting the woman he thought he wanted, his pride was tested when he realized she was already pregnant, and her constant infidelity. He found pride in himself, and truly became a man deserving of a great woman like Iris. I loved how they both had been faithful to each other as well. A really moving book!
