The most romantic lines uttered by Malik Khan, Crown Prince of El Bahar:

"You have slender ankles."

"I can wrap my fingers around your wrist with room to spare. You are a delicate flower of a woman, yet so very strong inside."

"Your skin is the color of cream."

"I want you to know how much I cherish you."

"You are a light in the evening sky."

"All other beauty pales before your radiance."

"I will dream of your slender ankles, your pale skin and the sweet scent of your essence."

And last, but not least:

Another great story by Susan Mallery, but not quite as good as the others I have read by her recently.

I enjoyed most of it, but there was a lot of little bits and pieces that annoyed me at times. I won't go into detail because they are too tiny to even bother mentioning, but the one thing that did make me sit up and say "Hey, hang on a minute" was when Givon spoke of his late wife.
I accidentally read these out of order so it probably wouldn't be as evident reading them in order, but (v...more
Single mom Liana Archer has read her share of romance novels featuring dashing, passionate Sheiks. Despite her fascination with the genre, she is astonished when sinfully handsome Malik Khan, Crown Prince of exotic El Bahar, hijacks her and her young daughter off an airliner and into his lavish desert palace. What does this sexy prince want with a passably pretty, slightly overweight schoolteacher from San Bernadino?

It was a bit strange at first how Malik became a bit obsessed with Liana, but he became the good guy when he learned about love with her little girl. He was very slow to understand that people trust and fall in love, but him those two things were practically nothing and he suffered quite a bit before finally surrendering.

I liked Liana and how normal she is. The reason that brought her to El Bahar was a job in a very exclusive school that could make possible to save enough to send her little on h...more
I don't make a habit of reviewing romance novels, but I'm going to make an exception for this one:

When I was younger, my family spent a week or two each winter in a cabin in a snowy tinseltown. The town boasted a grocery, a general store, a couple of cheap restaurants, and a liquor store or two. The grocery was pretty basic, but it had, along one wall, a rack of books: romance novels with the covers torn off. (I didn't know, at the time, that this meant that the covers had been returned to the p...more

This is funny. Though I'm not sure if it's funnier than the second one.

I would have rated it higher. But Liana annoyed me. For some parts of the story, she was selfish. She thought about herself too much, like how she would hurt and blah blah. She had a point. But it kept on repeating that it was borderline annoying and selfish. She didn't think about Malik's feelings too. I did start to like her near the ending and so on though.

I liked Malik in most parts of the story. What I didn't like was h...more
I don't know why but this one bothered me, perhaps its because I don't believe in fairytales and this one was much too Cinderella for me or because I couldn't emotionally connect to the characters. Either way, it was only okay!
I'm loving Susan's Desert Rogue series! I downloaded Desert Rogues Part 1 onto my Kindle and have read a book a day!
Good enough to keep me reading, but very predictable. BUT, it's a quick read....and good escapist fun.
Malik's story.. As jumbled as the rest of the Khan brother's story but just as thrilling.
It was alright. I think she has written better.
Loved It!!!!!!
