I felt that this story was trying to have its cake and eat it too. Marina is characterized as an unashamedly adventurous, sexual woman, and everyone is shocked because she has two illegitimate children from different fathers. But when it comes right down to it, we learn that she's been faking most of it and is the usual Harlequin heroine who a) forswears all other men once the hero has touched her and b) is the perfect devoted mother.

Most of the story follows the standard secret baby plotline, B

This is the first Trish Morey romance I have read and I must say I enjoyed it immensely ! I started and finished it all in the same day as I couldn't put it down.

There are some interesting scenarios in this book. I really liked the heroine, Marina, although as an Arabian princess Marina would definitely not have been her name. I would have liked a proper Arabic name to go with the setting.
However, that aside, I liked the quiet dignity that she maintained pretty much throughout the story.

Second review today that GRs ate. I had a great review/rant too.

Started out strong and faded about half way through. The hero's motivations for kicking her to the curb 4 years ago were stupid and weak. I really expected her to have done at least something to cause his vitriolic reaction to her. But no.

Aslo, why can't an HP heroine ever have another child with another man after she has one with the hero? I'd like to read that book. But no. The kids were written too old for their ages.

And don't
4.5 stars
This is one intense read, with all the tension, the angst, the attraction & the emotional roller coaster required in a great read. TM's writing style is superb. The characters are beautifully portrayed. Marina with her strength & dignity, Bahir struggling with the demons of his past.

Typical, but charming Harly with a-hole billionaire and spurned lover with the secret baby. I found this quite entertaining. There are a few little twists and turns you don't see with most of these books. One of the better quality sheikh books I've read (I can't believe I just typed that sentence).

Grade: B

I loved this book so much more than the first in the series. Marina and Bahir have a depth to their characters that just was not shown well enough with Aisha and Zoltan. After being captured Marina has to go home to see her children but her sister and brother in law wants Bahir to travel with her but she is still heartbroken over him and has kept a secret from him for nearly four years. Bahir does not want to be around the women he feels betrayed him. When he realizes that her son is his he is f ...more
Very good book. Left me wanting more from the other characters.
Oh this one is so good I loved the setting mostly in a Bedouin Tent in the desert very nice and really this is a very sensual and moving story that will hook you from the first page I fell for Bahir straight away I could feel the underlying feelings he had and the way that he finally opened up to Marina had me with tears in my eyes. This is the second book in the Desert Brothers series and I will be falling into the next one very soon.

Oh pá...que chato, isto foi giro. O gajo era um grande parvo no inicio mas depois afinal era um homem a sofrer, que tinha agido mal e afinal sempre a tinha amado, blá blá blá...odeio quando me trocam as voltas -_- eu pensava que não ia gostar.

Trish always fancied herself a writer, so she dutifully picked gherkins and washed dishes in a Chinese restaurant on her way to earning herself an economics degree and a qualification as a chartered accountant instead. Work took her to Canberra where she promptly fell in love with a tall, dark and handsome hero who cut computer code, and marriage and the inevitable children followed, which gave Tr ...more
