'I want this girl. I want her willing. I’d kill the others to stop them sharing her and then discarding her in the desert. I’ll teach this little blonde foreigner everything about obedience and the rewards that follow. Keep her safe for me. Until it’s time to send her home.'
First in the Sheikhs of Al Sounam series - an exciting hot romp in the desert.
Laurel de Courcey is captured by terrorists, chained up in a disgusting bunker, and videoed for a ransom demand which is shown worldwide. Ooops - wrong hostage! Who'd expect a shy Kiwi nanny to be worth anything?
Laurel's soon tied up in sexy Sheikh Rafiq's bed instead, because he rescues her and appoints himself her personal bodyguard. Very personal. But she has good reason to distrust men.
Imprisoned in his old royal hunting lodge deep in the desert 'for her own protection', Laurel rebels. Spectacular fireworks, dangerous escape attempts, and an impossible love affair follow. This different and delicious sheikh romance is Kris Pearson's all-time best seller. Her passionate sheikh in this love story is a man to fall deeply in love with. If you enjoy this one, look for 'Desired by the Sheikh', too.
Warning: contains one red-hot Sheikh with a wicked tongue and unlimited stamina.

About the Author
Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - SUMMER SPARKS - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both. The second is SUMMER SECRETS. She's currently writing SUMMER SPICE, and this is available on pre-order. Five of her Wellington books have been published in sweeter editions under the author name of Kerri Peach. If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others. Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand. Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories. Four books are now available in Spanish. There's a Spanish version of her website http://www.krispearson.com - click the flags at the top right of it to change languages. Five are currently being translated for China. ~ ~ ~ Kris es una chispeante autora de romántica contemporánea, pura y simplemente. ¡Bueno, quizá no tan pura!

This was a pleasure to read. Good plot. Characters are well drawn. Well done author.
This book has it all! It may begin as terrifying and rough, but from the second Rafiq pulls Lauren's body against him in the back of the van he knows she is his. His to protect, his to seduce.....and his to love, even if this means sending her away from him to protect her - after a little fun and a lot of steamy, hot sex! He will do whatever he can to protect her from those he is working with, those who want to torment her, share her and destroy her - even if that means sacrificing his own life and happiness to do it. Laurel is a sexy, feisty, angry woman, especially when she is ripped from her life and thrown into the back of a van. She may have grown up in the foster system and graduated from the school of hard knocks, but she is completely innocent when it comes to love, passion and sex. She is completely thrown by the instant feelings she has for Rafiq and who better to teach her than this dark, brooding, gorgeous man who has protected her from the hideous acts she could see in the eyes of her kidnappers. Even with the kidnapping I found this book deceivingly sweet and loving, but don't be fooled it is still steaming hot, sexy and dirty - a great read!
I love happy endings and this was a good story so everything i like
This book moves too slowly and is very predictable.
Loved it...will read more from this author
Very good fun story...
