Princess Annalina of Dorrada is being forced to marry King Rashid of Zahani, the ruler of the desert kingdom of Nabatean and Anna is prepared to do everything in her power to get out of this reluctant alliance – even throw herself at the first man she claps eyes on! But unfortunately for Anna, the man in question is none other than Rashid’s brother, Prince Zahir. Shocked at this sudden turn of events, Zahir might have a problem with Anna’s virtue and moral conduct, but he is well aware that if his country is to thrive and succeed, it needs to ally itself with foreign countries such as Dorrada – which is why he suggests to Princess Anna that rather than marry his brother, she marries him instead!
Getting photographed kissing a man who was not her betrothed was meant to get Anna out of her marriage of convenience to a desert ruler – she certainly never thought that she would end up swapping one brother for another. But with no other choice open to her, Anna knows that she must acquiesce to her father’s command and marry Zahir! With one broken engagement behind her, Anna had resigned herself to another failed relationship driven by the burdens of duty and responsibility, but utterly devoid of love – so she is totally flabbergasted when her husband unleashes desires and emotions which she had never experienced before! Giving into temptation and to Zahir’s seductive kisses soon proves inevitable, however, while her new husband has absolutely no qualms about sharing his bed with her, he makes it perfectly clear that his heart is off limits.
Despite his very privileged position as a desert prince, life had taught Zahir some pretty harsh lessons – mainly that he could not trust anyone other than himself! Well aware of the advantages that marriage to a European princess will bring to him and his country, Zahir expected his marriage to Anna to be a perfunctory affair, so nobody is more surprised than him when he finds himself unable and unwilling to stop himself from kissing his new wife.
Will their convenient arrangement give way to everlasting love? Or will old fears and ghosts from their pasts continue to condemn them to a lifetime of unhappiness and regret?
Andie Brock has become one of my go-to authors for sexy, scintillating and enthralling romance and Bound by His Desert Diamond continues her winning streak of enjoyable, engrossing and outstanding contemporary romances. A spellbinding tale of forbidden passion, powerful secrets and healing from the past, Bound by His Desert Diamond features a delightfully feisty and resourceful heroine who was strong, smart and intelligent and a deliciously flawed and gorgeous hero I couldn’t help but love. Add plenty of searing emotion, intense sexual chemistry, red hot sex scenes and poignant romance and you’ve the perfect book to lose yourself into on a cold winter day!
A terrific read from a writer who keeps on getting better and better, Bound By His Desert Diamond is a must-read for fans of Penny Jordan, Lynne Graham and Sharon Kendrick.
Princess Annalina wanted to run away from the cold marriage her father had arranged to a desert king. On the verge of throwing the ring in the black depths of the River Seine, she is stopped by a handsome stranger. She took advantage to the situation and kissed him in front of photographers so her engagement could get canceled. Little knowing that the stranger was none other than Prince Zahir, her intended fiancé’s brother.
Zahir wouldn’t let all his hard work go to waste in arranging a match for his brother with the European Princess. So he declared that now he would be the one marrying Annalina. Could Anna flee her fate now? Or could she stay married to a cold man like Zahir? Would she ever be able to thaw the ice around Zahir’s heart and make her home in his barren heart and faraway desert country?
BOUND BY HIS DESERT DIAMOND has intrigue, some mystery and emotional tension. Author Andie Brock brought this tale to the pages full of sensuality and drama.
Highly recommended for all readers of romance.
I absolutely love it when a book surprises me. I wasn’t immediately drawn into this book but once I got started I was swept away. I didn’t expect such an emotional story yet I found myself sobbing throughout the last few chapters. The ending, without giving away any spoilers, was beautiful.
Annalina has grown up in a very cold European castle with her equally cold father and he has been trying to marry her off without much success but this time Annalina must accept the proposal of Zahir but she has a secret that she needs to speak to him about and she is sure that he is holding something back as well and their first meeting is difficult but electrifying.
Zahir has many secrets and a major problem trusting after the years of war that his country has gone through and bringing Annalina into the family is still hard for Zahir but he cannot deny the spark that challenges him with her, will she be the person to bring him out of the dark and into the light and show him how to love?
There are a few twists in this story that kept me wondering but I could feel the light that Annalina found in Zahir this really is a fabulous story it is emotional moving and very sensual and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance with strong characters and lots of passion thank you MS Brock.
