 Shira couldn't believe it. She'd just seen her cousin, Erin, walk off with a tall, dark and mysterious Sheikh. Now she was all alone at a ball where she didn't know anyone. Then Sheikh Khalil had strode confidently into her life and whisked her away for the evening. But just as the night was about to get even steamier Khalil was called back to his home country, Jawhara, after a national emergency. 
They hadn't seen each other since that night. 

But when Shira gets sent to Jawhara on a business trip, she has no doubt that Khalil had orchestrated it. Shira had never met a man like Khalil before. He is so strong and handsome; everything seems to be in his control. When he touches her she is overwhelmed with attraction, especially when he looks at her with his deep brown eyes. 

Khalil can't believe that the one woman who had finally won his heart is an American, and so unladylike as well. But when he is around her he feels an overwhelming attraction - and he knows she feels it too. Khalil wants her to stay in Jawhara forever. Shira is furious when she finds out his plan and yet she finds such a strong attraction to him. She will be forced to decide between Khalil and her home... 

But the fairy tale soon ends when Erin is kidnapped from a refugee camp. Sheikh Kamal, Sheikh Khalil and Shira will all have to work together to get the future Sheikha of Jawhara safely returned.

 Erin needs Sheik Kamal more than ever.

After being taken hostage by Kamal’s enemies, Kamal entrusts the Head of Palace Security, Talib, and Erin’s personal bodyguard, PJ, to recover his captive bride.  

When PJ is sent to retrieve Erin the last thing she expects is to fall for her partner. Talib is dangerously handsome, with a deep tan, luxurious black hair and piercing brown eyes. He is a man used to being in control and gives off an air of effortless authority. And when his hands touch her, PJ feels an unstoppable attraction from deep inside. Even his scent overloads her senses and made rational thoughts difficult. This mission was going to be very frustrating. 

Talib has never met a woman like her. Her American ways confuse him: her lack of respect for tradition, appropriate clothing and feminine behavior causes them to clash. But he soon finds she has unexpected strength, a fire that challenges any man who thinks they’re better than her. She is tough, strong and never backs down from a challenge – even if that challenge comes in the form of a gorgeous 6'5" man. He wants her to surrender to him, but it may be him doing the surrendering. 

However both of them will have to hold back their attraction until the mission is completed. Any relationship between them is strictly forbidden. It’s a race against time to locate Erin and bring her back to Kamal. Every second Erin gets closer to the border and the chances of rescue get slimmer and slimmer.
