Title: Woman in a Sheikh’s World

Author: Sarah Morgan

Series: The Private Lives of Public Playboys (Book 2 of 2)

Grade: CABR Gold Star Review

Publication date: December 2012

Publisher: Harlequin Presents

Synopsis: With a client list hotter than the Zubran desert, wedding planner Avery Scott shouldn’t be surprised that her latest client is Crown Prince Malik of Zubran—the man who once lit her body on fire…before steamrollering over her heart.

Determined to ignore Malik’s lethal charm, Avery makes a very personal not-to-do list:

1. Not being Malik’s intended, our relationship must remain 100 percent professional.

2. His arranged bride might have run away, but I mustn’t distract him—for the kings of Zubran, duty always comes first.

3. However luxurious the Bedouin tent—and smoldering the tension—pride dictates the touch I crave stays strictly forbidden.

Review: What a fantastic read! Sarah Morgan had me hooked from page 1, chapter 1 of Woman in a Sheikh’s World(WIASW).This is an emotional journey in which the heroine, Avery Scott, is on emotional lock-down while her ex-lover, Malik (Mal to his friends) is ready to commit.

The story begins with Avery dreaming of the beautiful deserts of Zubran when suddenly the ground falls away beneath her. Avery’s awakened by her co-worker and best friend Jenny.

We soon learn Avery is struggling to cope with her breakup with Mal (even though she ended things), while planning his wedding reception to a virgin princess from one of Zubran’s neighbours.

Not one to be ignored, Mal arrives at Avery’s office via helicopter (landing on the roof of her office building), demanding to know if she encouraged his fiancee to run away.

Thus begins the adventure through the desert as Avery and Mal find their way back to each other. Oh, the heat and sexual tension between these two! 😉

Even after they do, there are still relationship hurdles to overcome. Quite realistic and refreshing, since most category romance books end at the reunion scene.

Thank you Sarah Morgan for writing such a masterpiece. I hope one day you can turn WIASW into a full-length novel.

Although this is book 2 of 2 in SM’s The Private Lives of Public Playboys series, each book centres around the relationship of a particular couple, in this case that of Mal and Avery. So go ahead and pre-order your copy of Woman in a Sheikh’s World. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. 😀
