    Mesmerizing!

    As the new crown prince of Judar, Shehab Aal Masood must marry Farah Beaumont to keep peace among tribes and peace in the region. Farah, upon discovering the identity of her father had the audacity to refuse. Does this woman care about anyone else but herself? Cold, hot, promiscuous to the point of flaunting her affair with an older man, Shehab sees her as one twisted, selfish and conniving woman! He hatches a plan to hide his identity from Farah, seduce her, and make her his bride. Once he meets Farah and sees her beauty, innocence and concern for others, his devious plan goes haywire! Who is seducing whom? Once the truth comes out, can love heal the depths of pain-inducing dishonesty?// In the second book of the Throne of Judar, Olivia Gates takes the reader on a thrilling emotional ride, full of the zeniths and nadirs of a passion and destiny that will not be denied. THE DESERT LORD'S BRIDE is a stunning middle book in a trilogy that draws even deeper into the landscape and the mythical Judar kingdom. Olivia Gates brings all the intensity and poetry of the first book, THE DESERT LORD'S BABY, into THE DESERT LORD'S BRIDE while also giving the reader a unique set of characters with their own personalities, passions and vulnerabilities. Farah and Shehab both have a wonderful sense of wonder and joy beneath their passion that draws them to one another. With her innocent loving nature, no wonder Shehab's plan explodes the minute he sees Farah. Caught in the middle between his dedication to the Throne of Judar and keeping peace in the region and his plan to avenge Farah's marriage refusal, Farah touched him in one place in his heart that is all his own, a place deep and beyond obligation but rather a place of passion, pureness of heart and sensual pleasure. Shehab is just as determined as his older brother Farood in THE DESERT LORD'S BABY but different and just as delightful!// In the second book of the Throne of Judar, Olivia Gates takes the reader on a thrilling emotional ride, full of the zeniths and nadirs of a passion and destiny that will not be denied. What once started as a change in color of ceremonial robes marking Shehab's rise to the position of crown prince becomes a story of legendary love. Olivia Gates fills her romance with twists that will leave readers gasping at the beauty and tearful for the sheer depth of their love for one another. In DESERT LORD'S BRIDE, the reader feels Shehab's dedication to Judar as he takes Farah on journeys to see the wonders of this desert land. Olivia Gates's vivid details mesmerize, portraying an exotic/fantasy culture with an intimate vision that makes Judar also personal, familiar and deeply-moving. I was just fascinated by how her poetic sensibility bridges a divide between the unfamiliar and landscapes more personal and familiar within this reader's imagination. DESERT LORD'S BRIDE sparks a a whole range of emotions from pure joy to the pain of loss, not just once but all the way to a happy ending that will have romance readers most eager to read the third book, THE DESERT KING.
