Sheltered small-town girl Gretchen Brannon was utterly out of her element when she aligned herself with Sheikh Philippe Sabon, the formidable ruler of Qawi. They came from different worlds, yet she found a soul mate in the powerful, sensual man who'd suppressed his passions for far too long, and harbored a secret anguish. But he made this virtuous young woman aware of her own courage and, in turn, she aroused his sleeping senses as no other woman could.

I love Diana Palmers books and looked forward to "reading" them in the audible version. Imaging my shock and dismay when I realized that one of my favorite of her books had been butchered to the point that the story was ruined, the characters were flat and the romance gone. Save your money, buy the written version. It's so much better than this. If they ever get the unabridged version then it will be worth the money.

Called to the scene of a high-profile murder, Brannon finds himself pitted against the vibrant, and vulnerable, junior investigator from his past. Years ago his heart had been intertwined with Josette Langley's, until she'd made an explosive accusation that had sent shock waves through political circles, and shattered his faith in her.

What would have made The Texas Ranger better?

Having an unabridged version available.

Any additional comments?

I loved the book and bought the audio without realizing that the book had been chopped up and ruined by removing most of the story. I was very disappointed.
