Publisher's Summary

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.

However, now that Gretchen's heart belonged to the Lord of the Desert, danger loomed when she became the target for vengeance by the sheikh's most diabolical enemy. In a final showdown that would pit good against evil, could love and destiny triumph?

A major disappointment.

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.

Not Much To It!

Not a bad idea for a story if it had been better developed. There really wasn't much to it. The story just wasn't believable.

Sometimes a narrator can improve upon a poorly written book, but not this one. Her Texas accent wasn't bad at times, sometimes I thought she sounded like Dolly Parton, from Tennessee.

Awful

This was awful. I'm not sure if it was the writing that bothered me so much or the narrator, who spoke the heroine's lines breathlessly and the hero's lines in an odd old-man accent. How can you enjoy a book when the voices conjure images of Barbie and Walter Matthau (sorry, Walt) having an affair? A wasted 3 hours. Oh, well, at least I got my ironing done.

Poor

This book was out in audible before. It was totally different than this version. Totally ruined the story, so much missing. Recommend getting the book or the original audiobook.

Really disappointed.

I usually find it annoying when people say the book is better, but the book really is better.
It is really weird that this version is missing half the entire plot of the book. And I was really upset about that because my favorite parts of the book are all in the second (missing) half. My next move is honestly going to be getting a refund for this book. If they ever come out with a full version I will definitely get that in a heartbeat.
