With her seven-year-old son asking questions about his father, Melanie Portreath decides it's time to tell Rafiq Al-Qadim about the son he's never met. Rafiq is shocked that Melanie would dare contact him after she played him for a fool eight years ago—professing her love to him while she was sleeping with her step-cousin. Despite the past, Rafiq is determined to make Melanie his wife and give his son a proper family. As facts are revealed, Rafiq begins to realize that his pride may have cost him eight long years of love. Michelle Reid's THE ARABIAN LOVE-CHILD (4) is an outstanding tale with two fiery and volatile characters and a romance that leaps off of the page.
