Alexandra Sellers' contribution to this anthology is another moving and intense Sons of the Desert story. Hadi al Hajar is a Cup Companion to Prince Omar--readers of this series will recognize what that means--and from the moment he sets eyes on Kate Drummond he's determined to resist the pull. Kate gives as good as she gets, though, on their journey through Barakat looking for a mythical, magical valley. Finally, in a remote mountain inn, they both crack....beautiful and intense. The other two stories also worth reading, Susan Mallery writes a sweet virgin story and Fiona Brand a strong time-slip romance. For those who haven't discovered the Sons of the Desert series yet, this is a pretty good introduction, although the story isn't as quite romantically hot and sexy as Sellers' usual.
