DESERT PRINCE, BRIDE OF INNOCENCE
DESERT PRINCE, BRIDE OF INNOCENCE (3) by Lynne Graham: Prince Jasim bin Hamid al Rais is worried that nanny Elinor Tempest is a gold digger looking to have an affair with his married older brother. Finding himself attracted to her, he sets out to seduce her. Jasim is shocked that she's a virgin, and the surprises continue when Elinor becomes pregnant. Before she can comprehend what's going on, she's married to Jasim. On her wedding day, when Elinor learns why he came into her life, she leaves without telling him. There are certainly sparks and electricity, but Jasim starts out as too overbearing, and as Elinor attempts to stand up to him, they constantly snipe and argue for over half the book. It's only when the two agree to start anew that a passionate and romantic tale emerges.
