Phoebe Douglas-Cauve feels like she's won the lottery when her abusive stepfather dies of a sudden heart attack. Finally, she is free! Or so she thinks. Unfortunately, her future becomes irrevocably entwined with that of Sheikh Hakim of Mehran. A single look from the powerful ruler is enough to set her body on fire, but can she ever like a man who speaks so highly of her horrible stepfather? Will she be able to get him to understand the truth of her childhood?
The powerful Sheikh Hakim Al Meshuda is far from pleased to be thrust into the role of guardian. Particularly as his charge is spoiled, selfish and distractingly beautiful. He puts her out of his mind, as best as he is able. Until, at twenty one, she arrives in Mehran, a sophisticated, troublesome, sexy woman. Resisting her is no longer an option... He wants her. That much is obvious. But just how far is he prepared to go to get Phoebe into his life and keep her there?
