WRAPPED IN PLEASURE
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural, General Contemporary Romance
This 2-in-1 combines the first Westmoreland story (Delaney's Desert Sheikh, 2002) with a new tale, "Seduced by a Stranger," which features Jamal's best friend, Sheikh Rasheed Valdemon. Rasheed has made appearances throughout Jackson's Madaris series and he meets his match in Jamal's baby sister, Johari. The setup is traditional, and the outcome can be seen from miles away, but the execution is superb. This has been well worth the wait.
Johari Ari Yasir is to return from the United States to prepare for her wedding to Rasheed, arranged since her birth. Rather than jump right into marriage to a 39-year-old "old man," the Harvard grad decides to take her own two-week vacation away from her family and bodyguards. Rasheed is not amused. Once he tracks her down, he decides to teach her a lesson by hiding his identity and seducing the innocent. Suffice to say the hunter gets captured by the game. (KIMANI/ARABESQUE, Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
