Mackenzie came to Al-Dashalid with a mission: save the women’s shelter that had taken root in a disputed fort between Al-Dashalid and her brother-in-law’s country. With war growing more likely every day, she doesn’t have time to waste arguing her way out of an unjust death sentence. She’s ready to sit down with Sheikh Issam and make sure he understands that the safety of the women and children in the shelter is more important than his alpha-male posturing.
What Mackenzie isn’t ready for is Issam offering her the perfect out: marriage. Members of the royal family are exempt from prosecution of holy law. He’ll meet his marriage deadline, and she’ll have his ear about the disputed fort and its vulnerable occupants. It seems perfect.
Now if only she could get him to listen…
She can’t wait to relax and see the sights, but with best friend Rene unavailable, there’s only one person left to show her a good time: unrepentant player James Tazeem. From the moment they meet, she’s tempted by every inch of his towering height. But even with his dark eyes and full lips awakening something she’s long ignored, there’s no way Tanya is falling for his charms. She came halfway around the world to make time for herself, and she means to keep it that way.
Sheikh James Tazeem’s first and only foray into love ended in betrayal, and he’s never made that mistake again. Since then, he’s enjoyed every moment of his playboy reputation. And yet, despite the stream of beautiful women he’s welcomed into his palace bed, he’s never been with an American. Now that he has sexy, feisty, innocent Tanya staying under his roof, he’s determined that she’ll be his first. She may be a challenge, but James has made an art form of getting what he wants. And all he wants is Tanya.
With undeniable chemistry sizzling between them, Tanya will have to fight harder than ever to resist falling for the handsome Sheikh who can offer nothing more than a fling..
A bump on the head leaves Cassie with no memory of who she is or why she is in the Middle East. Luckily, salvation comes in a tall, muscular, irresistible package. When Sheikh Hussain Tazeem puts her to work, she has access to his business deals and all the luxury his billions can buy, but it’s pushing his buttons that’s giving her the biggest thrill. He’s easily the most uptight man she’s ever met. Yet, the more she’s drawn to his dark eyes and silent strength, the more she knows there’s something she needs to remember… But what?
With their attraction building and millions of dollars on the line, the stakes are high for Cassie and Hussain. But as Cassie’s memory begins to resurface, the truth could jeopardize everything.
