The title says it all :) How good is a book that you take to bed to read a quick bit before falling asleep and before you know it it's 4am and your rolling over to tap the hubby? From front to back it is a page turner full of romance, alpha males, and gut wrenching story that at times is so vivid you feel as if your watching it on tv rather than reading a book. It is sexy and whitty and....I just can't tell you how much I loved this book. I promise that you won't regret purchasing it and will find that once your done your impatient to have book 2 to find out what happends next! Though this is my first time reading a book by Olivia Gates I can tell you that she has left a lasting impression on me and earned a fan with this tale of powerful love and devotion. Off to the website to get the second book!!!!!!
Carmen had fled from Farooq Aal Masood, pregnant and alone. After all, their relationship was only intended as a fling and Carmen never thought she could get pregnant! Now, Farooq is determined to claim both Carmen and their child, Mennah. Will his sense of betrayal prevent him from seeing Carmen's love for him?
At first glance, THE DESERT LORD'S BABY is everything I don't want to read in a book. Farooq is a very dominant man and his power has made him used to others giving in to him. This is where the gift of an author truly shines however. Olivia Gates makes me like Farooq! In fact, she makes me understand him and see his point of view in the entire scenario as Farooq's passion for Carmen shines through every facet of his being. Carmen's fear of Farooq's reaction to the pregnancy has tainted her mental view of him, but her actions show what she cannot yet acknowledge herself: that their love is powerful beyond words.
Olivia Gates writes some of the most stunning scenes! The image of Carmen during the henna process is perhaps the most incredible and revealing scene of THE DESERT LORD'S BABY. The depth of Carmen's love begins to reveal itself as she yearns for him with every fiber of her being. I think it was at that point that I fell in love with Farooq's character as well... and the grand finale of the tale only solidified my belief that Farooq's tough exterior hid a compassionate heart of gold.
Olivia Gates writes one heck of a romance tale! THE DESERT LORD'S BABY is incredibly sensuous and it is beautiful to see Carmen and Farooq look beyond the exterior to what is in their hearts.

THE DESERT LORD'S BABY is the first of a 3 book mini-series set in the kingdom of Judar, a kingdom ruled by sheikhs and kings. Olivia Gates is as much poet as romance author in this short romance in which the language itself has all the power and passion as the hero and romance. If you like passionate romance with dynamic, powerful romantic conflicts told mostly through the heroine's viewpoint, THE DESERT LORD'S BABY is a great choice. From the initial prologue to the last page, THE DESERT LORD'S BABY is a fast-paced, put-on-your-seatbelt romance read.
Carmen and Farooq have a passion together, a passion so intense that it could burn up oxygen, leaving them (and the reader) gasping for air! Together, Carmen and Farooq share the intimacies of passion, their bodies hungering for each other, intoxicated by their desire. After their first night together, Farooq offers her a three month deal to accompany him on a tour for peace and relief. Carmen never even considered the monetary benefits of being a prince's mistress. Her passion for Farooq wanted nothing more than Farooq and his love until a sudden change of circumstances forces her to rethink matters. Discovering that she is pregnant, suddenly Carmen must think of her child's future and safety. She cannot let her child be a pawn in the royal Judar household and the political intrigue that might endanger them all. She walks out on Farooq. She travels over continents to keep their presence hidden from forces she cannot control. Farooq has one passion --- to find Carmen and her baby and nothing will stop him, not even her. Hurt by her lies, Farooq is determined to make Carmen pay but can a fated love like theirs turn things around?Read more ›
Olivia Gates is a fantastic addition to the Silhouette Desire line. The Desert's Lord Baby kicks-off what should be a passionate 3 book mini-series, Throne of Judar.
Farooq is definately an Alpha male who knows what he wants...Carmen. The passion between these two is electric and the second half of this book has a scene that is intensely erotic and very romantic. I'm looking forward to the next two in this series.
Be swept away into the fascinating world envisioned by the creative Olivia Gates, where her imagination takes readers to new heights. Her new series regarding the Throne of Judar is captivating from the first to last page as intrigue and passionate emotions frequently intertwine. Words can barely describe the magnitude to which THE DESERT LORD'S BABY affected me, whether it was from the fervent love scenes or the powerful yet sincere feelings between Farooq and Carmen. These individuals are both determined in their goals, and their responses are influenced by genuinely realistic thoughts and actions. Farooq is an especially dominating male, and his presence in any scene definitely stands out. Throughout the story, I found my own heart either racing from their shared lusty passions or even aching for the anguish they suffered at times for what seems can never be. Every instant of this story is shown with convincing reactions and insightful emotions, and each moment totally drew me into the lives of this unforgettable couple.
The colorful descriptions of the traditions and people of Judar contribute to making this story utterly enchanting as the scenes come alive with authenticity. Ms. Gates cleverly shows that the passionate love between a man and a woman cannot be denied, regardless of their culture. There is also the unresolved situation concerning who will be the next ruler of this desert kingdom, and the author keeps this concern simmering all through the story. With misunderstandings being the starting point of this story, the road traveled by Farooq and Carmen is filled with intense yearnings yet numerous heartaches, too. THE DESERT LORD'S BABY is overflowing with profound emotions plus fiery sexuality and keeps the reader devouring every word.
