Stranded in a Middle Eastern airport, Michelle Day finds herself the object of interest for an abrasive, but all-too-sexy stranger. A stranger who tempts her with the forbidden in a land where indecency could get her killed, but how does one say no to such a deliciously, relentless pursuit?
Khalid Al Dehri takes one look at the red-headed spitfire in the business class lounge and knew he'd either been transported to heaven--or hell. Her tart response to his surliness intrigues him beyond all propriety and the longer he spends in her company, the more he can't deny his forbidden attraction, but will she explore the sensuality between them or will society's rules keep them apart?

Michelle Day is a translator, finally heading back to her home country after being gone to various countries for the last 4 years of her life. But her final flight on her way back to New York, in order to work as a translator for the United Nations, is delayed for hours and she is ignored in order for those who work at the airport to pay more attention to the impressive man in robes who is the only other passenger in her section of the plane. When she asks him for a translation of what was said on the speakers she never expected for her life to be altered by such an exasperating, magnetic, and annoying man. Sheikh Kal is on his way to the states in order to help his government prosper. He has no use for a women who can not even dress respectfully in his beloved country. But when they are thrown together due to a delay of their flight he never realized that he may actually have to do the chasing for once in his life instead of letting the women due all the work in their supposed relationship. More like high class prostitutes, because they expected a bunch of expensive gifts in return for going out with him. Kal is using his abrasiveness in order to keep the American away from him. And although it may turn her off of him he is having a harder time keeping his thoughts, and hands, off of her. But Kal is hiding something from Michelle, and it may be just the thing to make her never want to deal with him again. This was a great short story that although had sexual content that sizzled managed to have the plot and the characters become so enhanced that the sex was paltry in comparison. Another great read by miss Quan.
Those looking for a little afternoon delight will find just that in this erotically-charged meeting between strangers. When opposites attract readers are gifted with a story full of unrelenting sexual tension and sizzling banter in a battle of wills where both end up winning. Michelle is tired of all the restrictions placed on women in Middle Eastern society and can't wait to return home. When yet another arrogant male looks down at her she decides she's had enough and the two engage in a verbal battle that's both sly and sensual. As their plane delay stretches on so too does the verbal play that culminates in some very sizzling sexual encounters that left me parched. Michelle is a challenge for Kal and her intelligence led to lots of entertaining verbal battles. While Michelle is a strong-willed modern woman there's nothing unique about her and she fades into the background as we get to know the compelling Kal more fully. Kal is a man of wealth and good breeding who's accustomed to lavish comforts but tired of the women he's been with thus far as they're unchallenging and only with him for the wealth and prestige he gives them. When he first spots Michelle he's surprised by the possessiveness he feels towards her which results in a display of arrogance and judgement that riles her and unleashes their sexy battle of wills. Kal is unrepentant about his wealth and uses it to seduce Michelle and catch her off guard so she gives in to his sexy offer of an afternoon delight. Kal is dark and brooding, oozes sex appeal, with flashes of charm and dry humor. He completely overwhelms Michelle and readers with his commanding presence and is the highlight of this story as his presence kept me fully immersed in the story drooling over his sexual antics. This is a fast-paced read with exotic undertones that adds to the decadent delights Kal offers. The heroine is less memorable but readers will wish they were her as he's the epitome of tall, dark, and sexy. He's everything romance readers want in their hero and he's the perfect fodder for any woman's nightly dreams. The ending is very open-ended and might frustrate some but it sums up what this story is....a decadent and exotic appetizer that's satisfying but leaves you wanting more.
What a HOT, fun, HOT, quick, HOT read! I really enjoyed everything about this story. The really fun thing about it is that, as a whole, it seems like a scenario that COULD actually happen! (I've never been to an overseas airport, so for all I know, it's entirely plausible!) An American woman on a plane (which gets delayed) in a foreign country, asks another passenger to translate what the captain has just announced over the speaker. In that instant, as soon as Kal (the passenger) sets his eyes on Michelle, he can't tear them away. The events progress from there, and let's just say one of said events involves an unoccupied airport lounge! I would have continued reading this story no matter how long it was. In fact, I would have loved to read MORE about Michelle and Kal. I will DEFINITELY be reading more books by Tara! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
