His duty, her dreams, undone by their desire…
In the male-dominated oil industry, executive Olivia McInnes plays a careful game – she’s cold, uncompromising, and ambitious as hell. Once she seals the deal to drill in the clear waters of Saqat, she’ll finally prove herself worthy to take the reins of her father’s oil company. Her only obstacle is marine biologist – and Saqat’s royal heir – Sheikh Khaled Ibm Saqat al Mayim, who’s determined to protect both his people and his country from environmental devastation…
It’s not long before Olivia’s icy cool exterior is shattered by the intelligent and wickedly hot sheikh, and business is surpassed by sweet, stolen pleasures. But outside the bedroom, there’s reality to be faced. Soon Khaled must return to his obligations – and his betrothed – in Saqat.
Caught between duty and ambition, can an oil tycoon and a sexy sheikh find room for love… or will this business deal spell disaster for them both?
I was apprehensive about reading this at first because I thought, Khlaed would be a stereotypical playboy bachelor bazzillionaire that magically falls in love after years of being a gigolo Let me tell you, I’m glad I was wrong.
I actually enjoyed this story quite a bit more than I anticipated.
Ros has written compelling characters, a very well done story line and transported me to beautifully well written locations. I could appreciate Khlaed’s circumstances but also Olivia’s plight as well.
She was a strong, confident woman in a professional position normally given to a man and she worked it. Instead of having a ‘chip on the shoulder’ attitude, she just carried on her business that lead her to Kahled.
Their romance was a whirlwind but certainly with no shortage of heat.
Overall, I was extremely happy with the novel and I will look forward to reading more of Ms. Clarke’s work in the future.
