THE SHEIK AND THE PRINCESS BRIDE
Alone because men are intimidated by her, pilot Billie Van Horn is focused on the job when she and brother Doyle undertake training the new Bahanian air force. Irked when Billie beats him in a dogfight, Bahania's Prince Jefri is still charmed by her and makes the Van Horns his guests at the palace. Doyle tries to interfere, but Billie shares one night with Jefri then learns in the morning that he's engaged, which leaves her sure she'll never find love. Susan Mallery's new Desert Rogues story, The Sheik & the Princess Bride (4), beautifully combines contemporary and classic elementsand the dark, delicious Jefri is unforgettable.
