HEART OF A DESERT WARRIOR
HEART OF A DESERT WARRIOR (4.5) by Lucy Monroe: Geology student Iris Carpenter has always found it hard to trust others, but a man from the desert broke through those barriers — and then broke her heart. Now she is back in his presence but unwilling to fall under his addictive spell. Asad bin Hanif Al’najid, sheikh of his Bedouin tribe, lost Iris six years ago with his arrogance, but he’s a smarter man now and he’s found a way to bring her back to him by requesting her skills as a geologist. But can he keep her there? Monroe’s dialogue is rich with the colors, flavors and sounds of the desert, and readers will cheer for this couple’s love to stand not only the test of time, but the clash of cultures, as well.
