He is the Lion of the Desert, an urbane British-educated sheikh with unlimited wealth, unlimited women, and unlimited talents. Khalid Rajhi has risen above his primitive upbringing to become a man of the world, irresistible to women. Alxy Langford, ex-wife of an American diplomat stationed in Paris, has come to him with a proposition. Her daughter has been kidnapped, and Alyx needs a man who will be at one with the night, who can blend into the Paris social scene or the fierce life of the Bedouin warriors. She is a woman like no other, and Khalid knows he will consent to her plea in order to add her to his possessions.
