The woman he shouldn’t crave…
Desert prince Zahid once walked away from Trinity Foster and the fire blazing in her eyes. He was heir to the Kingdom of Ishla, and duty required that he return home, but even the heat of the desert was unable to burn away memories of their scorching kiss…

A chance encounter results in one earth-shattering night that brings more than just passion. As painful truths of the past are revealed Zahid realises that Trinity needs his protection. His only option is to bring her back to Ishla – and though she’s strictly forbidden, walking away from her again is impossible!

One opinion.............................

Rating By R,22/08/2014

Without using spoilers all I can say is that one of the main thrusts of the plot (not mentioned in the blurb) which unfortunately has cropped up several times recently is not what I want to read about in M&B. Zahid was bearable but Trinity was weak and dull, her actions (and inactions) frustrating. Her family was dysfunctional and I disagreed with the dynamics of it at the end. I did perservere with the book until the end but it was a long hard struggle. All I can say is that this in my personal opinion this was awful.

great read

A classy, genius writer, like Carol Marinelli, knows how to entice the readers with all the ingredients of a fantasy! The heroine Trinity is so cute, strong and transparent to the readers though a mystery to the characters in the story! It is only right that a Prince keeps going back to her and it ends on happy ever after note for all concerned! With eager anticipation will look forward to Layla’s story. A ten out of ten indeed for this one
