THE DESERT KING'S VIRGIN BRIDE
In The Desert King's Virgin Bride (3), by Sharon Kendrick, Sheikh Malik has a problem. His English ward, Sorrel, has grown into a lovely, headstrong young woman who's ready to explore the world and her womanhood. Malik knows he should let her go, especially in view of her barely hidden infatuation with him, but something compels him to offer to teach her what she most desires. Sorrel's acceptance opens Malik's eyes to her importance in his life, and he soon realizes he'd be lost without her. Kendrick nicely shows the humanity beneath Malik's stoic surface, and the feisty and spirited Sorrel proves to be his perfect mate. Their scenes together sizzle.
