THE DESERT PRINCE
THE DESERT PRINCE (2) by Jennifer Lewis: Throughout their rocky history, one thing has always been certain: Salim Al Mansur would never marry Celia Davidson. But that has never stopped her from loving him, so when he asks her to help landscape his new hotel, she agrees. Spending time together is pushing the feelings both have for each other to the surface, and Celia knows it is time to tell Salim about the daughter they share. As old and new begin to collide, will Salim finally realize that Celia is the only woman for him? There's not much joy to be had here. Lewis' characters are confusing -- Salim, especially, is a trifle unlikable -- and the plot feels cliched.
