Years of hard work has given her a degree of acclaim. When offered the opportunity to work in the middle eastern country of Bashir to create the defining mural for the new children's critical care ward, Catherine embraces the chance to meld her love of children and her love of art. What she doesn't think she is ready for is the blatant and instant passion she feels the moment she meets the successful country's crown prince, Malik.

Years of careful preparation by his loving family has him ready to take the yoke from his father one day, but nothing could prepare him for the instant lust he feels the moment he sees Catherine. Never one to let an opportunity slip by, Malik pursues Catherine, convincing her to explore their desire. But when political intrigue places Catherine in danger, Malik soon realizes lust has evolved to love and he'll do whatever it takes to keep the woman of his dreams safely by his side, no matter how hard she tries to fight their fate.

She left her family behind as she wanted to new life away from them. She has a varied life and she gets a chance to do a moral. She goes and meet a prince. He wants her so much. See if he can seduce her to his way of thinking I received an advanced copy and I enjoyed it so much that I want to review
Warm hearted story of royal love Marie Tuhart's The Desert Prince was a light read that alludes to a little kinkiness in the bedroom though it's all behind closed doors. Malik and Catherine's first meet had a nice little twist. There was chemistry between them from the first meet which grew to be so much more. I enjoyed the banter between Malik and his brothers and hope to read their stories in the future. I received an advance reader copy.
