Throwback Thursday (92) Historical Romance Edition: The Sheik

Princess Zara had been raised a warrior, always at her father's side in battle against the Arabs who had stolen their land. So when she was taken prisoner by Sheik Jamal abd Thabit during a raid, she was determined not to succumb to his wishes. She thought it would be easy, for rather than take her as his concubine then and there, Jamal struck a deal—if he was unable to seduce her within four weeks, he would set her free. But Zara was more his slave than she'd thought, for she found herself mesmerized by the virile beauty of his muscular form and, at the slightest touch of his capable hands, felt her body grow hotter than the desert sun. Torn between duty to her people and the temptations of her Arab master, Zara wondered if she dared risk all she had ever known and trust her heart to this enemy.

Why Sheik? 

I fell in love with this author years ago, and Sheik is one of the best books she has written. Its engaging, sensual and easy to fall in love with.

  • Never heard of this, but I do know a lot of people love Connie Mason. I have one of her books somewhere on my e-reader that I need to dig up. That cover is making me giggle too. 🙂

    • Yeah the cover with those bright colors and all. But you know I look at Mason’s older covers, and I just love them because of the stories. I read them years ago, and they were so fun and all of her books are different time frames and tropes so its that feeling of “coming home” i guess.

  • I remember this book. I am pretty sure I swooned and swooned and swooned. I reminded of me one I read in the 80s same setting but different leading lady circumstances. I never knew Shieks could be so hot 🙂
