Aly is so frigging bored A bit[ok, a lot] disturbing, but it was an engaging read I literally smuggled this naughty-covered book into my office and read bits of it during my lunch break. Desert Hostage is an adventure and is incredibly well written, IMO.
You get a glimpse of hard desert life and why such brutality or "savagery" was needed. The novel touches on cultural differences and expectations, similarities and differences between Allah and God as well. The story opens with a BANG. While Desert Hostage is not as emotionally chaotic as Stormfire by Christine Monson was, the build up and story-line was far more realistic.
Yes, the the Heroine, Juliette, was annoying at times, but I tried to understand where she was coming from. Or the ending could have been done differently. I felt like the story could have gone on a bit longer just to explain a few loose ends.
January 1, Liz This book has it all romance, adventure and an actual love story. I liked how it started with the intro of the mom and dad of the two main characters.
That laid our the story perfectly. I liked the independence of Juliette and I loved Karim. He gets his heart broken and then he vows to go after her and the real adventure begins. Has become one of my favorite books of all time.
This is a keeper that I will continue to read again and again. In the beginning I was wondering what the author was doing, thought i was reading the wrong book or something. But i thought it was interesting what she did in the beginning though. January 1, Squark One star for this blatant product of plagiarism. I often curse romance novels now days for lack of innovation but this book form the 80s is a shameless reproduction of A Son of the Sahara by Louise Gerard written in s which BTW is now free to read online.
January 1, Alucard Great cover, could have easily been the cover of Savage Sands, would love to see how Coconis would have interpeted it. Again, am going to draw both a paperback cover, and my own personal "Movie Poster" for "Savage Sands" and put them up on display in January 1, Jeanette Loved it! One of my favorites. If only I could get it in e-books. A must read! Then it all goes meh. Then all of a sudden, for no reason I can discern, she becomes all meek!
Then there was all the unnecessary things. It is a much sweeter H. He is tender to the h even when he is out for revenge. He never stopped loving her throughout the book. The story started well with a great potential to keep me excited and curious, but the ending seemed off somehow. People will, at least once in their life, experience an illness or how it is to be sick and that they will be died someday.
It includes the fate of who is our other half, how many luck we will receive, will we be a smart or a stupid person, will we be a bad or a good person, and so on. There are so many unpredictable things life will throw us. Until the next reads : January 1, Rose Oh, dear. This sort of nonsense does make me irritated with E. Seriously, how many ruling sheiks are actually half breeds? How many sheiks steal skinny, pale European girls and abuse them, rather than marry the well dowered, gorgeous and well mannered daughters of neighboring rulers?
If we are to believe this romance genre, well, all of them. No idea who Arabian women marry. And that is all you need to know about this book, because I am sure you have read it before under a different title. January 1, DelilahW I enjoyed this novel. She was a heroine worth her salt. It took a long while to get to the main characters. Very pleased I read this book.
January 1, Aissata My kind of book.

Kigaramar Nevertheless, a man devoted with a passionate singularity diahe his heroine makes for a great hero and once in a while a desert romance with such a hero will catch my interest. Fearless and proud, he alone could tame her. If only I could get it in e-books. Although there was this one scene where he angrily stalks off after an argument. Between them lay the secret that would bind her to him forever, a woman possesssed, a slave of love. Also, thanks to the digital conversionists who rescue obscure 20s romances. The story started well with a great potential to keep me excited and curious, but the ending seemed off somehow.
