As a first novel not so bad.

Considering this is Ms. Lindsey's first published work I don't think that it is that bad. The book came out in the mid-80s I believe and when you think of the other authors work at that time, this book is really pretty good. Please think about what was available to the average romance reader at the time, Harlequin and not much else in the US. So when reading this book take the writing with a grain of salt and think back to what we were reading back in the day.

I do like Johanna Lindsey enough to forgive her for writing this book, but I she better not write so atrocious in the future. The first chapter in I knew something was wrong. By the middle of the second chapter I had it figured out. Not only were the characters wishy washy and childish, but the writing was very choppy. The writing style was similar to, "I got hungry, so I ate. The food was okay but it made me thirsty. So I srank some wine. Then I got tired so I went to bed." C'mon if I wanted to read that kind of style of writing I would read a third graders paper. How can a caharacter that was described as so independent and it was established that she hated the guy ever forgive him for kidnapping him let alone fall in love with him. Can we say stockjolm syndrome much? Would not reccomend this book unless you have ran out of everything else.

    I have read almost all of Jl's books and I really love her books!!!This one however I didnt love.It was good, but not great.The desert was a little boring for me and I didnt love Philip.Christina was sweet.Her realizing shes in love with him just fell out of the sky. BUT I do love her books and she writes them extremely well, so I will defenitely recommend any of her books.I'll give this one a 6/10.

    Good, but I've read better.

    The book wasn't the best EVER. It was kind of dissapointing, that Christina gave-in to Philip that quickly, and that it only took Rashim's STUPID letter, to split the two up. I also thought that Tommy's love for Christina was more of an obsession. This therefore forces me to question the credibility of the attack. (he seemed rather CONFUSED). although the ending, wasn't incredibly original, I have to say, that as a Johanna Lindsey FAN: I can only recommend this novel, to those people who would like to read one of her early MASTERPIECES.
