A sheikh intent on revenge, an Englishwoman caught in a trap, a love that cannot be denied…

Sheikh Rayan ibn Mohammed Aziz is as uncompromising as the desert in which he was raised. So when his half-sister is seduced, dumped, and ruined by a middle-aged English aristocrat, there is only one way in which Rayan intends to exact revenge.

The only child of a notorious womanizer, Lauren Alexandra Le Harivel is the apple of her father’s eye. While he roams the world seeking pleasure, she's left by herself to run the family estate and dream of a different life. But when a darkly handsome stranger starts work on the family estate and makes her feel beautiful and desired, she agrees to return with him to his desert homeland.

But what began as a means to vent Rayan's anger and avenge his sister's death turns into something very different under the heat of the desert sun and their love affair, which proves even hotter...

Excerpt
Rayan’s neck prickled, and he glanced up at the ivy-clad manor house. He thought he saw a movement at one of the second-floor windows, but it was gone before he could double-check. Maybe he’d imagined it. Maybe it was simply the warmth of the summer sunshine on his back. He’d forgotten how warm English summers could be. The temperatures were nowhere close to the unrelenting heat of the Ahmar desert, but warm enough to build up a sweat. Especially when shoeing a fine Arab mare, such as this one.
He rubbed the horse’s flank, settling it as it nickered, as if sensing someone from her own part of the world. He took hold of the reins and walked the horse back to the stable. Only when she was comfortable did he leave the stable, sliding the bolt behind him. Through the top of the stable door, the mare poked out her head as if reluctant to break the connection. Rayan smiled and rubbed the horse’s nose, muttering to her in Arabic—words of endearment, words of love, which he only ever uttered to animals. Animals never betrayed him. Providing you treated them right, you could rely on the love of an animal.
Suddenly the horse’s ears twitched and her eyes shot to one side. Rayan didn’t turn immediately, although he, like the horse, could sense they were being watched. Instead, he took a few moments to calm the mare before turning slowly to find a girl, the sun behind her obscuring her features, standing at the entrance to the stable yard, looking at him. Disappointment filled him. He’d been hoping to see the lady of the manor, the high and mighty Lauren le Harivel. But he’d been here a week and hadn’t yet caught sight of her.
He was about to return to his duties when the girl walked over to him. She was short, slender and wore jeans and a camisole top which revealed pale shoulders and a distinct lack of bust. His gaze rested for a few moments on the coral necklace she wore. It stirred memories of a different coral necklace, a different country, and the love of someone who he hadn’t appreciated at the time.
Lazily, he allowed his gaze to move over her hair—which was blonde but scraped back into a severe and very long ponytail—before he met her gaze. Her eyes were very blue, very knowing. They were eyes that definitely belonged to an adult woman, not a girl. He stood stock still. It was her. And yet she looked different to her photos.
As she approached, he saw she wore no make-up on her pale face. But what was striking was her manner and air of authority, which was reflected only in her eyes. She extended her hand to him and introduced herself with a voice which was low and husky, and totally at odds with her mousy appearance.
“Hello, I don’t think we’ve met. I’m Lauren le Harivel.”
