THE SHEIKH'S LAST SEDUCTION
THE SHEIKH’S LAST SEDUCTION (4.5) by Jennie Lucas: Broke and afraid of going home, Irene Taylor still wants the impossible dream of love, marriage and family. Unfortunately, she’s attracted to a heartless, crass, lethally sexy sheikh. Sharif, Emir of Makhtar, is a realist who believes love is a fantasy until he sees his destiny across a crowded room. Brazen, beautiful and honorable Irene is a challenge, but a seduction is all he can afford, because there’s no happy ending for him, only duty. Set equally between historic Italy and a shiny modern Persian Gulf metropolis, Lucas builds her intricate, affecting romance with ribald humor, intense emotions, enticing narrative and endearing characters. Her righteous heroine and obligated hero are unrivaled, and their love scenes are sensual yet innocent.
