Carol Marinelli recently filled in a form asking for her job title. Then it asked what Carol did for relaxation and she put down the truth – writing. The third question asked for her hobbies. She hadn’t even wanted to try. If the truth be known, Georgie would far rather be home in bed, but it was Abby’s birthday.

The rest of their friends had drifted off and Abby didn’t want her special day to end just yet. She seemed quite content to stand in the impossible queue, watching the rich and famous stroll in as the doorman kept them behind a thick red rope. It’s fun just watching,’ Abby said as a limousine pulled up and a young socialite stepped out.

I’m going to take a photo. Georgie shivered in her strappy dress and high-heeled sandals, though she chatted away to her friend, determined not to be a party pooper, because Abby had been so looking forward to this night.

The doorman walked down the line, as he did occasionally, and Georgie rather hoped he was going to tell them to all just give up and go home. A camera flashed desetr when one did, the rest followed, the photographers assuming that they must be somebodies as the heavy glass doors were opened and they entered the exclusive club.

There was a tightening in her throat and a strange sinking feeling in her stomach as she fathomed that this might not be a mistake on the doorman’s part. Mistakes like this just did not happen. And there was only one person in the world she could think of who might be at this place.

One person she knew who had hewrt power to open impossible doors. The one person she had tried for months not to think of.

One man she would do her utmost to avoid. Georgie sat down, her cheeks on fire, scared to look up, to look over to the man approaching, because she knew that when she did it would be to him.

Georgie lifted her eyes, and even as she managed a small smile, even if she did appear in control, inside every cell jolted, with nerves and unexpected relief. Relief because, despite denial, despite insisting to herself otherwise, still she wanted him so.

On his arm a woman as blonde as herself flashed a possessive warning with her eyes, which Georgie heeded. Despite all she had read about him, despite the excesses of his lifestyle. He hdart taller than she remembered, or was he just a touch thinner?

His features a little more savage. His raven hair was longer than she remembered, but even at two a. His black eyes roamed in assessment, just as they had that day, and then he waited for her gaze to meet his and somehow he won the unvoiced race because, just as had happened on that first day, she could not stop looking.

His mouth had not changed. Had she had only one feature to identify him by, if the police somehow formed an identity parade of lips, she could, without hesitation, have walked up and chosen her culprit.

For, in contrast to his sculpted features, his mouth was soft, with full lips that a long time ago had spread into a slow, lazy smile, revealing perfectly even teeth, but tonight there would be no smile.

It was a mouth that evoked a strange response. As Georgie stood there, forced to maintain this awkward conversation as heartt met his gaze, it was his mouth that held her mind.

As he spoke on, it was his mouth she wanted to watch, and after all this time, in a crowded club with a woman on his arm, it was those lips she wanted to kiss.

Are you getting mariinelli lot of clients? She recalled all the excitement in her voice as she’d told him about her Reiki and healing oils venture, and how interested he had been, and she was glad of the darkness because maybe, just maybe, there were tears in her eyes. How she wanted the real Ibrahim to come back, to take her by the hand and drag her out of there, to take her to his car, to his bed, to an alley, to anywhere where it could be just them. Instead he awaited her answer and Georgie shook her head.

Since heaft kiss that had changed her for ever. Since harsh words had been exchanged. She delved just a little when she spoke with her sister, searched out his name in ways she wasn’t proud of. His words were almost lost in the noise of the club, and the only way to continue the conversation would be to move her head just a fraction closer, but that, for her own reasons, Georgie could not do. As his date gave a pointed yawn and the hand on his arm tightened, Georgie thanked him for his help in getting them into the club and for the champagne, and in return Ibrahim wished her goodnight.

Georgie gave a wry smile. It came with a royal warning! Especially, when all of a sudden he changed his mind, when he left his date and strode back towards her. It was almost the same as it had once been, this charge, this pull, that propelled him to her, and she wanted to give in and run, to cross the club and just run to him, but instead she stood there, shivering inside as he came back to her, rare tears in her eyes as he bent his head and offered words she’d neither expected nor sought.

He did not have to repeat it, the word had been ringing in her ears for months now. And then he deserrt away and she could not stand to caro him leave a second time so she took her seat instead. Instead she took a sip of her champagne, except it didn’t quench her thirst, so she took another narinelli then looked over to the man who never usually looked back.

Georgie has had a rough family life and almost died from anorexia.

She is beyond that now and is paying for her weaknesses in her teenage years. A past marriage and divorce to a man who turned out to be as og a drunk as her father is keeping her from achieving a love match with Prince Ibraham from the country of Zaraq.

Divorce hewrt not recognized the desert country. The old ways and the modern clash to cause major problems in the old country, especially with the outbreak of a virus that lack of easy transportation of medical aid to the outlying villages has complicated. Georgie’s sister warns her not to get involved with Ibraham because he is a playboy with no intentions of settling down.

Ibraham has allowed the estrangement of his parents to rule his life and keep him from his home country except for short visits. His brother, Georgie’s brother-in-law, Karim is warning Ibraham away from Georgie. The attraction between them is too strong and after giving in, they decide marunelli must part. Both struggle with their emotions and the situation with the rules of the country.

Only change in the country can allow them to be together. I love the strength and power of Karim and Felicity’s marriage as it has a huge impact on H and h as well as the dedication they have to look after the people of tge land.

This is an important thread desegt binds all the characters in this compelling drama of loyalty and responsibility to the throne, the land and it’s people. His romance with Georgie is compelling, feisty, deeply romantic and action packed. The family dynamics are high powered, the shift in power is full on and the family reconciliations are full of satisfying twists. If a reader is looking for a solid character driven romance filled with exotic locales and bittersweet emotions that tug the heart, then Heart of the Desert can deliver that and more.

What a complicated romance Ms. Not only is there miscommunication but cultural mrainelli need to be navigated, old emotional heeart need to be addressed and the past needs to be hauled out into the light in order for the truth to be revealed.

The truth basically is deserrt being so stuck in tradition and believed perceptions from others that characters can’t see any other way to be, to act or to live. It took the weakest member to show what it means to be strong – in heart, in forgiveness and in love.

Georgie is a woman growing. The author lets hewrt reader know how far she’s come and in this tale, I was able to see the finishing touches, the final life experiences that hone the woman she’s always wanted marunelli be and ends up becoming.

It’s quite the emotional ride. I liked her spunk and her love of family. I liked watching how she learned to love herself as she was and how she refused to settle for second best.

Because she demanded more for herself, she ended up bringing out the best and worst in the hero. Ibrahim is a fighter.
