Here is a timeless story of love and adventure set among hills of gold, warring tribes, and fabled kingdoms—the story of a fearless princess and a barbarian sheikh….
She was a ravishing pawn in a game of politics and passion…
Flaunting the oppressive destiny decreed for her by the kingdom of Tamrovia, Princess Theresa Christina Rubinoff struck a sensual bargain with a handsome barbarian chieftain. She vowed to play his seductive game, surrendering herself to his will, all the while determined to fight for her independence in a land that considered women only as playthings.
Mysterious as the desert night, rich as Midas, Galen ben Rashid swept Tess away to his palace in exotic Sedikhan, offering her freedom in exchange for the marriage that would join their kingdoms. A man surrounded by enemies, he would make her a slave to his passion in order to bind her to his side, little knowing that when he took the captivating princess as his bride, he would lose his heart.
Why The Golden Barbarian?
This is one of my all time favorite historical’s….its packed with adventure and sensuality. Iris Johansen is a favorite author of mine especially when it comes to historical’s. They are different and unique and she always packs a punch when writing a solid love story. This is a story that is based on a “arranged marriage” of sorts…which is one of my favorite tropes to read. But I also love how these two fall in love and the ways they are tested that only bring them closer together. Its real and vibrant in emotion. Not a story to miss out on folks.
