Overview

Sheltered small-town girl Gretchen Brannon was out of her element when she aligned herself with Sheikh Philippe Sabon, the formidable ruler of Qawi. They came from different worlds, yet she found a soul mate in the powerful, sensual man who’d suppressed his passions for far too long—and harbored a secret anguish. Nevertheless, he made the virtuous young woman aware of her own courage…and, in turn, she aroused his sleeping senses as no other woman could.

However, now that Gretchen’s heart belonged to the Lord of the Desert, danger loomed when she became the target for vengeance by the sheikh’s most diabolical enemy. In a final showdown that would pit good against evil, could love and destiny triumph…?

I've read this book at least 30 times. If you want to take a trip to a foreign land without leaving home then read this. It's good. You have some action, romance, conspiracy, etc. It's not for horror lovers and supernatural lovers, but more for the basic romance novel lover.

DP is the very best! You are taken in right from the begining with Maggie and Gretchen traveling. Not a dull moment with Phillipe around and don't forget his father and all his grand children LOL But you have to read the book to find out what I am talking about.

Loved every second of this book and as soon as I was done I started over.

Houston investment analyst Maggie Barton leaves Texas to work in Qawi as the personal assistant to the ruling Sheikh. On the way over, Maggie accompanied by her best friend Gretchen Brannon stop for a short vacation in Tangiers. However, after only one day in Africa, Maggie learns that her beloved Cord Romero was severely injured in an accident. Although she believes Cord will never love her, Maggie needs to return home to help him recover. Maggie tries to persuade a doubting Gretchen to continue on to Qawi and take her job.

Still in Tangiers, Gretchen accidentally runs into a handsome man, who enjoys her enthusiasm and gusto. He turns out to be Maggie¿s new employer Sheikh Philippe Sabon, who sees the ardent American as an answer to one of his problems. Both hide the truth from one another, but soon fall in love, leaving each one worrying over what will happen to their relationship without the foundation of veracity.

Best-selling author Diana Palmer provides her fans with a heated contemporary desert romance. The story line is fast-paced, but requires leaps of faith. Gretchen is a warm heroine and Philippe is a hunk of the highest order. The secondary cast adds depth that brings Mediterranean Africa and the Middle East to life. Although not one of Ms. Palmer's better novels, fans of Middle East romances will delight in LORD OF THE DESERT.

This is a very good book. It is the type of book that you would like to re-read again and again. And if you liek Nora Roberts then you would like Diana Palmer.

This is one of my all time favorite DP books. I love it so much I have it in paperback, on my nook, and both audio book versions (abridged and unabridged). I read it or listen to it over an over and have lost count of how many times I've read or listened to it. It's just such an entertaining story with twists and turns and unexpected romantic issues not to mention other characters from other DP books that if you are not already a Diana Palmer fan now I think this one just might hook you into reading more. The hero of this story is Phillipe Sabon an Arab Sheik who made an intriguing debut in another DP book "Once in Paris"; which is another great and touching story with some intrigue of its own that rolls over into "Lord of the Dessert". When time permits I like to read all the books related to this story in the following order. (Please note you can read this book as a stand-alone beautifully but if you like to immerse yourself in Diana Palmer brooding male land like I do, this is just the order I like to read them.) 1 - Once in Paris 2- Paper Roses 3 - Lord of the Desert 4 - The Texas Ranger 5 - Desperado I hope you give the whole sequence a try. Enjoy!
