I won't read a book that doesn't contain a romance plot of one kind or another...

Desert Warrior (Silhouette Desire, #1529) - Nalini Singh 3.5 stars

Ok, this had quite a few problems and carried a load a cliches usually found in harlequins. Despite that, I really enjoyed it and became involved in the heroes' drama. It was an angsty, emotional story of two people who had fallen in love four years ago, but the heroine, 18 at the time, refused to leave her family and follow the hero, to his sheikdom. Now, stronger and wiser, she decided to leave everyone behind and get another chance at her old love, who apparently hasn't forgotten her and marries her on the day she lands on his country. But, being hurt before, he refuses to trust her with his heart, though he plans to completely satiate his physical hunger with her. She however wants more....

As I said, there were many problems with this one; the country is supposed to be a sheikdom but the citizens are not muslims, though they dress as such. The country is supposed to be super small but it takes 5 hours drive and 3 days on a camel to drive from one city to the other. The hero and heroine can sense by kissing each other that the other one hasn't been kissed or touched by anyone else all the time they were apart, lol! But details aside, this eventually managed to deliver emotionally and that's what counts after all:)
