Rating: 4/5 Stars

Sometimes I read just for a quick escape. I am not looking for literary prose or a complex story line, but I just want to be entertained for a short while, to take me away from the pressures of running one business and starting another. Sheikh’s Desert Duty did exactly that for me. I was emerged into a tale, that could never happen, but was mesmerized by the characters anyway. This short read (185 pages), had everything an escapist romance should have – two main characters that are likable, steamy romance, an exotic locale and a tale that is as far away from our regular life than possible, all while not portraying the woman as a simple plaything, and the man not as a simple alpha male.

Like I mentioned above, this is not a book for those who are looking for a more complex story line, but it was entertaining non-less, and did not leave the characters flat. A worthy read.
