“You walked away from our wedding, just walked away and kept walking while I waited for you. And I hear nothing from you for a year, except a trail of credit card charges. Now, without explanation you return saying you want our baby. What the hell is going on, Taina?”
A reasonable question for Prince Daidan ibn Saleh al-Fulan to ask his beautiful wife, Finnish heiress Taina Mustonen. But how can Taina answer when the heartbreaking truth would not only make herself an object of pity to perfectionist Daidan, but would also destroy the diamond business he values so much?
With no answer, Daidan comes up with a proposal of his own—one which will force Taina to confront the fears from which she's run her whole life.

I always enjoy her books.
Ms. Fraser’s 5th installment of Desert Kings with Prince Daidan ibn Saleh al-Fulan and Taina Mustonen’s story; “Wanted: A baby for the Sheikh”. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Desert King books, but, this may be my favorite so far. I love Ms. Fraser’s writing style and how she can paint a complete picture for me with each crafted word. This book, specifically, took me to what is imaginary to a place that I truly could imagine. Taina is heiress to a diamond empire in Northern Finland. Even though Prince Daidan was the Exotic Sheikh in a land of Pale Finns, he felt that Finland was his home more than Ma’in. We met Daidan is brother to King Tariq and Prince Sahmir (books 3&4) when they found their HEA. This book takes place 1 year after Daidan and Taina are married. She walked away after their wedding and was now returning to her ‘husband'. But, why? Just before Taina walked down the aisle, her father’s attorney told her the business agreement that her father (before he pass away) and Daidan had agreed to once he married Taina. Shocked and hurt, she did what she always did, she ran away and has been gone for 1 year. Taina and Daidan had loved each other passionately before they were married. Now, she was numb from both the tragic she experienced while away and the feeling of being betrayed by Daidan. He also felt betrayed and had no idea why she left and no longer trusted her. The heartrending and terrible tragic that had struck her while she was gone, was now her secret. She did not want Daidan to find out her secret. If he did he may not want her back and it would more than likely destroy the diamond business that he values so much. While both were drawn to each other as they always had, neither could trust that the other would not hurt them again. I was taken on this journey with words that created a lot of emotions. Some happy ones with the prospect two people who could not admit to each other they was still in love. There also was sadness, yes and some tears, with the revelation of the tragic that Taina went through alone. Of course there was a lot of hot sizzling sex! Will Prince Daidan and Taina find their way back to each other? Can they forgive each other. Or when both are confronted with all the painful truths, will they need to walk away? I highly recommend this book. If you have not read the previous installments, you can enjoy this as a stand-alone. Yes, it’s that good! Oh and where does the author get those wonderful book covers for this Series? So very cool….WOW! “I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
