Image of The Scorpion & the Seducer (Leisure Historical Romance)

Vanak's Middle East-set stories captivate with their vivid backdrops, thrilling adventures, clever plots, unforgettable characters and a passion that matches
the blazing heat of the sun.

Half-Egyptian Jasmine Tristan is ruthlessly snubbed by society. Only Thomas Wallenford, the Earl of Claradon's heir, appreciates her spirit and intelligence. But Jasmine knows he cannot reciprocate her secret love for him. Thomas has always protected Jasmine, but after his twin brother's death he must act the part of a duke and put his personal longings aside.

Suddenly, he and Jasmine are thrust together on a journey to Egypt. Jasmine hopes to uncover the truth of her parentage, and Thomas enjoys the freedom he cannot have in England. In the desert they're free to love, and their passion sizzles, but someone is threatening Jasmine--an enemy who knows the truth about Thomas's brother's death. (Leisure, May, 380 pp., $6.99)
