Royal heir Zadir Al Kilanjar is determined to woo renowned architect Veronica Baxter to his homeland of Ubar to design his palace—and become his wife. Ronnie first met Zadir when their plane crashed in the Empty Quarter (Desert Kings – Veronica – Stranded with the Sheikh) and she hasn’t been able to get the seductive sheikh out of her mind. With her career in high gear and her heart surrounded by more stone walls than her projects, she’s resolved to resist Zadir’s advances—but he’s just as determined to win her.

EXCERPT:

“I’ve always had a vivid imagination.” Right now her imagination was causing her all kinds of trouble. Zadir’s arms still hung by his sides, but she could visualize them wrapping around her as they had that scary night in the desert, when he’d held her close and offered her comfort—and so much more.

And that mouth. Damn it, but she wanted to kiss him. It wasn’t fair of him to stand so close to her, those sensual lips just a few inches away, tantalizing her with the memory of them on her own. “Uh, I guess I should get some sleep.”

“Yes.” He didn’t budge. His eyes had turned ocean blue and gazed right into hers. She couldn’t move. Or breathe. How did he have this effect on her? This was exactly why she didn’t return his phone calls. Why she knew she needed to stay far, far away from him.

It happened so slowly that it didn’t quite seem real. There was certainly no conscious thought or intention involved. One moment she was thinking about how she should definitely not kiss Zadir Al Kilanjar, and the next moment she was doing it.

Their lips came together like a force of nature that couldn’t be stopped—a flash flood or a bolt of lighting striking out of the clear blue sky. Suddenly his arms were around her, just as she’d imagined, and her palms pressed into his back.

Desire raced through her with alarming force, deepening the kiss and drawing them closer. A tiny groan escaped her mouth, which should have shocked her into stopping, but she was too far gone in the all-enveloping kiss.

Zadir’s heart beat against her chest as he held her close. His passion was evident in the way he caressed and kissed her like his life depended on it.

<b>Customer reviews:</b>

"...hard to put down and decidedly addictive series."

"Ms Lewis has me mesmerized with her unique storytelling."

 "Hot, Hot, Hot love scenes, a well written, creative and intriguing story, plus inventive, vivid characters, all on top of seriously sexy romance. All of that is combined into this fantastic series... I didn't want to set it down....seriously, I was falling asleep over this book in the early hours of the morning!!"

 <b>Bold and passionate brothers return to claim their thrones in remote and beautiful Ubar after their estranged father dies and divides his kingdom between them.</b>

In <b>Stranded with the Sheikh</b>, shy architect Veronica Baxter finds herself on a jet with dangerously charming Zadir Al Kilanjar, heir to the throne of Ubar. When their plane crashes in the deserted Empty Quarter, they search for a way to escape—and discover each other.

In <b>Rescued by the Sheikh</b>, royal heir Osman Al Kilanjar must choose a bride to claim his throne, but he’s tired of the gold diggers who flock around him and knows he’ll recognize his true mate when he meets her. Film producer Samantha Bechtel has her whole life mapped out like the shooting script of one of her documentaries—but it takes a detour when she breaks down in the desert and is rescued by the commanding and charismatic sheikh. Osman decides to put the local marriage festival she’s filming to good use and claim his bride. Sam is shocked by Osman’s bold seduction—and even more surprised when she finds herself falling under his spell.

In <b>Bought for the Sheikh</b>, royal heir Zadir Al Kilanjar is determined to woo renowned architect Veronica Baxter to his homeland of Ubar to design his palace—and become his wife. With her career in high gear and her heart surrounded by more stone walls than her projects, she’s resolved to resist Zadir’s advances—but he’s just as determined to win her.

In <b>A Christmas Wedding</b>, Sam Al Kilanjar attempts to negotiate her first holiday season in a country with different customs, a big fat Ubarite wedding and the arrival of her drama-loving family, all without losing her mind—or her beloved, who is called away to deal with a crisis on the eve of their wedding. Veronica Baxter is excited about her wedding to Zadir Al Kilanjar, but worries that her estranged parents will ruin everything. Can they find Christmas miracles among the madness and enjoy the weddings they’ve dreamed of?

In <b>Return of the Rebel Sheikh</b> Widowed queen Aliyah has resigned herself to a life of loneliness until a rough-mannered stranger intrudes on her solitude. A professional warrior and protector, Gibran has kept his distance from the palace he once called home--until his royal half brothers invite him into their midst. By profession and inclination, he keeps his emotions on lockdown, but finds himself falling under Aliyah’s quiet spell. Will these two lonely people dare to seize the love they crave?

In <b>Captivated by the Sheikh</b>, Amahd Al Kilanjar is all work and no play. Yes, he needs to choose a sensible and traditional wife and produce an heir, but he’ll fit that into his schedule when the time is right…or so he thinks. Mackenzie “Mac” Malone travels to Ubar for a job in the oil fields, and is startled when an innocent flirtation with a handsome stranger leads to an explosive kiss. A Texas country girl and a prince from an ancient dynasty? Impossible, surely…or is it?

 Twenty-seven year-old Lucy Neel is done with being a wallflower. Ready to take a risk, she pursues a vacation fling with a sexy bull rider…and winds up pregnant.

Notorious playboy and daredevil bull rider Bowie West didn’t plan to seduce innocent Lucy, but the passion that ignited between them was too strong to resist.

Can Bowie convince Lucy that a roving rodeo cowboy is ready to settle down?

EXCERPT:

“You’re getting to have quite a mouth on you, young lady.”

“You’re just getting to know me better. You might not like me so much once all your illusions about innocent virgins have been dashed.”

“Oddly enough, the more I learn about you the more I like you.” He stepped forward, pushing her hood back off her head and letting the rain pour down over the cascading tendrils of her dark hair. “You’re just full of my kind of surprises.”

He slid his arms inside her raincoat and pulled her toward him. Warm rainwater ran into their mouths as they opened them to kiss. Steam rose gently from them into the damp air as they allowed their hands to roam over each other.

There wasn’t anywhere she’d rather be than in Bowie West’s arms. When he held her, she felt safe. She’d been alone so long that she was used to being tough enough to take on the world by herself. Now that she was getting a taste of what it was like to share your burdens and your joys with someone else she in danger of becoming addicted.

“I have an idea.” He took her hand and turned toward the barn. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a roll in real hay.”

“I think you’ll find it rather scratchy,” said Lucy doubtfully. But then she’d never had a roll in real hay either. Rolling in the hay seemed to be pretty popular, so who was she to go against tradition?

A true cowboy never gives up on what he really wants...

 Professional rodeo cowboy Jesse West has made a career out of going with his gut and holding on tight. When he learns that the woman of his dreams is suddenly single, he’s determined to win her back.

 Tara Kent has already lost everything she ever dreamed of. With her career in crisis and her longtime fiancée in another woman’s bed, she wishes she could crawl under the covers and hide. She definitely isn’t ready for a free-spirited cowboy to ride roughshod over her heart.

Jesse’s used to working with difficult horses—he knows how to take his time and gain their trust—but reaching Tara’s wounded heart is proving to be far more of a challenge. Can he convince the feisty beauty that she doesn’t have to be perfect to be loved?

EXCERPT:

He grinned lazily at her, and she felt a little flame flicker alight somewhere down inside her. “It must be a heavy burden needing to do everything right all the time.”

“It would be better if I tried to do stuff wrong?”

He shook his head, smiling. “Nope, but sometimes you’ve gotta just do stuff, and figure out the right or wrong part later.”

“That kind of behavior sounds like it could get you into trouble.”

“Yeah,” his smile broadened into a grin. His eyes narrowed slightly and flashed as the sunlight caught them. “That’s exactly what I’m talking about.”

Book 1 in the Heroes of Henderson series by USA Today Bestselling Author Liz Kelly

What happens when best friends fall for the same girl?

A bromance, a romance, and a love triangle.


Local sports heroes Brooks Bennett and Vance Evans are used to being part of a winning team. Yet when it comes to romance their good cop, bad cop images have them handcuffed. They want a woman’s point of view to help unshackle their reputations, and they’ve picked out one pretty, pony-tailed firecracker to do it.


Lolly DuVal longs for a summer fling that can set off all her bells and whistles. So she agrees to tutor Henderson’s hunkiest heroes on what women really want. But now she finds herself caught between two cops and a hard place. And those bells and whistles? They are starting to sound a whole lot more like alarms.

All the books in the Heroes of Henderson Series are complete romances. They do not need to be read in order, but it might be more fun that way as characters continue to show up in Henderson in big ways and small.
