Presents Loves…a Sheikh!
by Tilda McDonald, Editorial Assistant
We honestly can’t think what there is not to love about a Sheikh. Our ideal desert prince is brooding, intimidating, and bound by a sense of honor and duty to his kingdom. But that’s just one possible incarnation of our favorite type of Presents hero. A Sheikh can also be a wild, untamed playboy out to escape the weight of the crown—a dangerous but ultimately enticing prospect for any heroine. Whichever you prefer, our Sheikhs are always fabulously wealthy, temptingly exotic…and, of course, to-die-for gorgeous!
So what sets a sultry Sheikh apart from the many other delectable types of hero? Personally, we think some of the fantasy stems from the desert kingdom at his command. What heroine could possibly resist being swept into a magical, other-worldly land where the hero reigns supreme? Some of our favorite romances are set in these fictional kingdoms, where the heroine finds herself out of her depth and falling into temptation, all at once. There’s nothing more impossibly tantalizing than a forbidden seduction in the sands at the mercy of a Sheikh!
Not to mention that these heroes have the ultimate (seemingly!) insurmountable conflict—with a crown to bear and often the pressure to marry suitable royal brides, they’re as out-of-reach as men come…not that any of that can stand in the way of the right woman! Tradition can’t bar the path to a Sheikh’s happy-ever-after—after all, he makes the rules. And they do say power is an aphrodisiac!
If you agree and want to immerse yourself in the fantasy of a sublime Sheikh, look out for Abby Green’s Awakened by Her Desert Captor this March…and many more sexy Sheikhs from Presents in 2016!
Seduction in the sands…
Cabaret dancer Sylvie Devereux and Sheikh Arkim Al-Sahid have never seen eye to eye—not from their first antagonistic meeting to their last intoxicating kiss. And certainly not after she publicly stops his convenient society wedding to her beloved sister!
Now Arkim wants revenge on the sinful seductress who cost him the respectable reputation he needs. Luring Sylvie to his luxurious palace in the desert, he’ll get her out of his system once and for all. But with her sass and sequins stripped away Sylvie is surprisingly vulnerable—and there’s one last secret Arkim’s not prepared for…her innocence!
Is the desert Sheikh your favorite hero—and why? Let us know in the comments below!
