Prince Hafiz devotes his days to his people and his nights to indulging his desires with his stunning American mistress, Lacey Maxwell. But duty requires him to marry a suitable bride. 

In her deepest secret fantasies, Lacey naively hopes to one day wear Hafiz's ring, until her dreams are shattered and he chooses someone else.

Faced with the reality of a passionless union, Hafiz realizes the years spent with Lacey have done nothing to slake his hunger for her. Instead he's determined to turn his only vice into a virtue for the sake of his country and each other!

~Guest Post!~
If you read my book, PRINCE HAFIZ'S ONLY VICE, it was probably obvious how much I enjoy romances set in desert kingdoms. Why do I like them? I like being swept away to exotic settings. I'm interested in following the heroine as she maneuvers through an unfamiliar world and eventually masters it. And, of course, I want to see the arrogant sultans and sheikhs--the most exasperating of the alpha male heroes--tamed by love.

Here is a list of my top ten favorite romances filled with Arabian princes, sheikhs and sultans. If you enjoy desert romances as much as I do, give these a try:

THE DESERT BRIDE by Lynne Graham. A reunion romance about two people who want very different things in life.

DESERT WARRIOR by Nalini Singh. I was swept away into the exotic world this author created.

DUTY AND THE BEAST by Trish Morey. This one starts off with a bang and you will probably read it in one sitting!

DUTY, DESIRE AND THE DESERT KING by Jane Porter. This book will appeal to readers who enjoy opposite attract storylines.

ESCAPE FROM THE HAREM by Mary Lyons. A larger-than-life romance that is pure fantasy.

GIRL IN A BEDOUIN TENT by Annie West. This is a dramatic love story about a woman who is "given" to a sheikh and she refuses to be a kept woman.

SECRETS OF THE OASIS by Abby Green. A sensual romance about two strong people who are vulnerable to each other.

THE SHEIKH'S CHOSEN WIFE by Michelle Reid. An emotional love story about a woman who can't give the one thing her sheikh husband needs.

THE SULTAN'S VIRGIN BRIDE by Sarah Morgan. A sexy story about getting a second chance at love.

TO TAME A SHEIKH by Olivia Gates. I have always enjoyed her sheikh romances and this is one is my favorite.

Have you read any of these books? Do you have a favorite sheikh or desert romance?

"I will miss you, Hafiz," she said brokenly as her throat closed up. The tears she thought couldn’t happen beaded on her eyelashes.

Hafiz let out a shuddering breath. He swept his fingertip against the corner of her eye, taking her tears with him. The moisture clung to his knuckle, and he rubbed it into his skin with his thumb, silently sharing her agony.

The image took a chink out of her hard-earned resolve. Lacey wrapped her arms around her stomach before she crumbled altogether. "I had so many questions to ask you, and now I can't remember what they were." All except for one that danced on her tongue. "Did you ever love me?"

Silence throbbed in the air.

Lacey blinked at the question that had tumbled from her mouth. Of all the things to ask, her mind screamed.

Hafiz went unnaturally still.

"I don't know why I asked." She shrugged as her pain intensified. "Please, don't answer that."

The words were ripped from deep within her. She desperately wanted to know the answer. She never questioned it before, but she had been living in a fantasy.

Lacey had always felt Hafiz loved her. It was in his touch, in his eyes, and in his smile. But he never said the words, even when she chanted her declaration of love in the height of ecstasy.

It was too late to find out. If he didn't love her, she would never recover. If he did love her, then she would never let go. Even if he was married, even if he kept her hidden. And she couldn't let that happen.
