Pride and passion vie for supremacy in this fresh new telling of E.M. Hull's romance classic.
A haughty young heiress for whom the world is a playground… A savage son of the Sahara who knows no law but his own…
"There will be inquiries." I choked out. "I am not such a nonentity that nothing will be done when I am missed. You will pay dearly for what you have done."
"Pay?" His amused look sent a cold feeling of dread through me. "I have already paid…in gold that matches your hair, my gazelle. Besides," he continued, "the French have no jurisdiction over me. There is no law here above my own."
My trepidation was growing by the minute. "Why have you done this? Why have you brought me here?"
"Why?" He repeated with a slow and heated appraisal that made me acutely, almost painfully, conscious of my sex. "Bon Dieu! Are you not woman enough to know?"
When pride and passion vie for supremacy, blistering desert days are nothing compared to sizzling Sahara nights…

Fun to Listen to !
Diana Mayo is a passionate strong willed woman. She has been raised with wealth and privilege. She knows what she wants and she goes after it. What she wants now is a holiday in the vast Sahara deasert. She has dreamed of it for years and now that her chance is finally here nothing will stop her, even the wishes of her brother and friends.
Sheik Ahmed Ben Hassan is the ruler of all that he knows. No one goes against his wishes. He gets what he wants even if it is by force. And having seen Diana in a ballroom before she sets of on her trek he has decided she will be his.
The narration was well done. Dawn Hyde was clear and concise with just the right amount of emotion thrown in at the appropriate parts.
I was wondering if I was going to be at a loss with this story since I had no prior knowledge with the 1919 Classic The Sheik. However I had no need to fear. This is exactly what is called it is a retelling of the story and what a story it was.
The author did a fantastic job of transporting us into the middle of the Sahara. The hot nights made even hotter with the relationship building between the 2 main characters were a joy to read about. The chemistry between these two strong characters will set your reading or listening device a smolderin’.
