 Desert Kings

Three brothers return to claim their thrones in remote and beautiful Ubar after their estranged father dies and divides his kingdom between them.

 

In A Christmas Wedding, 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?

 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.”

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?

EXCERPT:

His dark eyes seemed to stare right past her quiet and unassuming façade and see into the darkest reaches of her soul. Into the cold, lonely places where she hid when her late husband took his pleasure with her. Into the cobwebbed corners where she’d stashed the inconvenient needs and desires that had no place in her life.

Then he kissed her again. This time she kissed him back harder. Her arms wrapped around his neck and she heard Megu’s chain drop to the ground, but she didn’t care. Gibran’s lips welcomed hers and heat flared between them, lighting a fire that spread to her belly and limbs. Knees shaking, she clung to him, feeling the thick, hard, masculine shape of his arms and back, letting her fingers grope into his thick hair, drawing in the masculine scent of his skin. She kissed him with every ounce of hope and desire that she’d shoved deep down inside her, letting them bubble up in a mad and crazy explosion of passion.

 <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?
