    The Desert Lord's Baby - Baby, You Gotta Read This!

    I love this book! Olivia Gates used her characteristically flawless style of deep emotions, intelligent layers, and vivid descriptions to write one dynamite book that I read in a single sitting.

    The chemistry between the two characters jumped off each page, then to boost it into the stratosphere, she added a baby. A baby! The description of her cherubic face alone caused me to ovulate on the spot!

    Throw in a 6'4" alpha male whose guarded heart has turned to jelly at the first glance of her two-toothed, drooly grin, and your heart will melt, too. Theirs is the most amazingly real, deeply emotional, poignant father/daughter first encounter I've ever read. Gates had me smiling through my tears.

    One of my favorite scenes of all times is where we meet Farooq's brothers, the heroes from the other two books of the trilogy. Seeing the three gorgeous alpha males passing around the newest little addition to their family, and witnessing as she melts their hearts, took my breath away. It was this scene, too where Carmen first began to win over her future brothers-in-law with her wit, talent for languages, and refusal to be intimidated.

    But, it isn't all baby cuddles and giggles. There's a question of legitimacy and oh, yeah keeping the crown in the family. All that, and Olivia still manages to bring us plenty of the hottest, most passionate love in all of romance.

    Once again, Gates keeps us thoroughly enthralled in a world of such rich and vibrant description, that you'll have to ask yourself later if you read the book or watched a movie.

    You won't want to wait between books, so you might as well buy all three at once!

    Passionate, explosive, poetic!

    Carmen and Farooq have a passion together, a passion so intense that the emotion could burn up oxygen, leaving them (and the reader) gasping for air! Together, Carmen and Farooq share the intimacies of passion, their bodies hungering for each other, intoxicated by their desire. After their first night together, Farooq offers her a three month deal to accompany him on a tour for peace and relief. Carmen never even considered the monetary benefits of being a prince's mistress. Her passion for Farooq wanted nothing more than Farooq and his love until a sudden change of circumstances forces her to rethink matters. Discovering that she is pregnant, suddenly Carmen must think of her child's future and safety. She cannot let her child be a pawn in the royal Judar household and the political intrigue that might endanger them all. She walks out on Farooq. She travels over continents to keep their presence hidden from forces she cannot control. Farooq has one passion --- to find Carmen and her baby and nothing will stop him, not even her. Hurt by her lies, Farooq is determined to make Carmen pay but can a fated love like theirs turn things around? Powerful, passionate and virile, Farooq demands attention, not just from his royal position but from the force of his personality. Carmen is equally determined and ferocious, especially when she has her child to consider. Can Carmen protect her daughter Mennah and love Farooq at the same time? Can he not only seduce her but win her heart? Can he show her that a man can serve country and family at the same time? Can their love for one another survive when Farooq is a man destined to lead Judar, a man called forth to serve his country, through blood and through merit? THE DESERT LORD'S BABY, Olivia Gates' debut in the Silhouette Desire line, is a romance full of passion and emotion from beginning to end. The romantic conflict between Farooq and Carmen sizzles with dynamic energy, sensuality, and unspoken secrets. Olivia Gates puts together a hero and heroine whose passion for one another leaps up off the page. Mennah, cute and yet just as audacious as her father for grabbing what she wants, moves the reader's heart as her presence and exuberance for life shines in the presence of her parents. Olivia Gates paints a beautiful portrait of a father loving a daughter, truly valuing his child for herself. THE DESERT LORD'S BABY looks at the body with powerful, poetic and unforgettable imagery --- especially during Carmen's wedding preparations. Sensual without being too graphic, the reader feels the sensuousness and beauty of the body as it breathes or reacts to its surroundings. In this romance, the reader feels the power of the body as amazing and beautiful, especially when love inspires her characters. In her debut romance for Silhouette Desire, the first of the Throne of Judar trilogy, Olivia Gates captures all the passion and poetry of romance. Brava!
