WEDLOCKED: BANISHED SHEIKH, UNTOUCHED QUEEN
WEDLOCKED: BANISHED SHEIKH, UNTOUCHED QUEEN (4.5) by Carol Marinelli: Although King Xavian of Qusay and Queen Layla of Haydar have been betrothed for 10 years, they've never actually spoken. A honeymoon in the desert turns stranger into beloved, and as the lovers unite, so will their kingdoms. But there's a secret in Xavian's past -- one buried so deep even he isn't aware of it. When the truth comes out, not only could it destroy Qusay and Haydar, but Xavian and Layla may not even be legally married any more. Marinelli's deeply emotional story has two strong, sympathetic characters that readers will fall in love with. Royalphiles will positively cheer at the ending.
