Overview

The Desert Flower

At seventeen, fiery Juliet Cameron fell passionately in love and married the perfect companion for the adventurous life she wanted to lead. Lord Ross Carlisle is handsome, dashing, and as eager to explore the world as she is. But social constraints and fear of an all consuming love that threatens to engulf her independent spirit send Juliet fleeing to the distant land where she was raised as a diplomat's child.

Now, a dozen years later, a gentleman's promise sends Lord Ross on a dangerous rescue mission to Central Asia--and to a shocking reunion with his long estranged wife. Warily they join forces to cross the merciless desert to Bokhara, where Juliet's army officer brother has been imprisoned. The fierce attraction that drew them together so many years before has never died. But if they succumb to passion, can either of them survive if they cannot heal their broken marriage?

Editorial Reviews

AllAboutRomance.com - Jean Wan
"...Sheer brilliance. [The] historical vibrancy and vitality bring to mind Dorothy Dunnett with a dash of Indiana Jones...Ms. Putney's descriptions convey both the romanticism and the harshness of the dunes and their nomads. Traveling with a desert caravan, Ross and Juliet talk and fight and laugh, sometimes as the only way out of a tight spot, and I loved every word of it. I also loved Ross... a true gentleman, and super, super hot. And Juliet was such a vital, complex woman."

Meet the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has five times had books listed among the Library Journal’s top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she’ll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She’s delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

    Good, But Not My Style

    After reading the first book in this series, I fell in love with the characters. And while I loved the characters in this book, I did not care for the constant danger in the book. That is just my personal preference. A little danger - okay - but it just seemed like this story had non-stop danger the entire book. Just a little too much for me. Having said that - I did love the ending - and overall it was a great story.

    Loved this - can't wait to read the next installment!

    The only negative thing I can say about this book is that I don't want to wait for the next one to come out! After reading the first book in this trilogy, I immediately downloaded this one. Now I have to find something else to read until the last book is available. Really enjoyed it.
