He’ll do anything to protect his kingdom

Even blackmail her into marriage!

Sheikh Karim is as ruthless as the harsh desert that forged him. Entertaining bubbly Princess Galila at a royal wedding seems frivolous…until she reveals his family’s darkest secret. To protect their honor, Karim must seduce Galila into silence! The raw heat of their encounter stuns him…and inspires a more permanent solution. To prevent a scandal, Karim will make impetuous Galila his convenient bride!


Blackmailed … into love? With the third book in the Bound to the Desert King quartet, Dani Collins brings us Karim and Galila’s story. He’s been keeping a secret for most of his life and with a few drunken words, she sets his world to spinning with new information that could ruin everything! The characters are both quite feisty, and watching them come together and attempt to fight their attraction at the same time as they are giving in to it is quite a fun endeavor! The story was fast paced and very enjoyable. Looking forward to the final book in the quartet!

Sheikh Karim al Zyria has no idea attending a royal wedding will change his life in the blink of an eye, but when he encounters a tipsy Princess Galila of Khalia, a secret so potent it could bring down his kingdom is exposed! He’ll do anything in his power to keep it contained … even blackmail the Princess into becoming his Queen!

Princess Galila is already at a low point in her life, she doesn’t need an egotistical man throwing his weight around and demanding things from her she doesn’t want to agree to. He might have a few strings to pull to get what he wants, but she won’t remain his prisoner for long!

A K-9 cop and Colton nanny come under fire

A Coltons of Red Ridge romance

Officer Dante Mancuso pursues justice with only the company of his K-9 partner. But when tragedy strikes, the bewildered bachelor winds up with custody of his infant nieces. Desperate for help, Dante hires heiress Gemma Colton to help him care for the little girls. As they grow closer caring for the babies, shadows from their respective pasts threaten their growing bond.


A life they never expected! With another trip to Red Ridge, we get the story of a cop out to track down the troublemaking Teflon Twins who gets sidetracked with a personal crisis and gets aid from none other than Gemma Colton. A little less intrigue in this one than we might have become used to in a Red Ridge story, but the adorable life with twin babies makes up for it with the heartstring pulling it brings. A really sweet one!

K-9 officer Dante Mancuso is used to life with just his partner Flash by his side, but when an accident happens, he finds himself suddenly the guardian of his infant twin nieces. He’s a single guy with no immediate plans for settling down, so what does he know about babies? Absolutely nothing … and panic is ensuing!

Heiress Gemma Colton is tired of being thought of as an air-head with nothing to offer, and she’s determined to somehow find a way to prove that she can be a wife and mom like the best of them when she decides she wants to be. Dante’s emergency gives her the perfect opportunity to step in and offer her services as the live-in nanny he desperately needs. Before long, she finds herself liking the baby girls and their sexy uncle a little bit too much!

From making the royal bed…

To carrying the royal heir!

It’s the day of the royal wedding, and everyone who’s anyone is in attendance—except the bride! Refusing to let being jilted disrupt his kingdom, duty-bound, coldhearted Sheikh Zufar commands timid maid Neisha be his stand-in queen. Their marriage is coolly convenient, but behind closed doors, their chemistry burns fiercely…and Neisha’s shock pregnancy will test Zufar’s iron control more than he could ever have imagined!


The wedding will go on! With the second book in the Bound to the Desert King quartet, Maya Blake picks up right where the royal wedding was thwarted, to continue the story from Zufar’s point of view. The connection and likability of Zufar and Neisha was very strong and I enjoyed their story very much. Her past being discovered was quite an interesting twist! Looking forward to the continuation of the quartet!

Sheikh Zufar al Khalia is set to wed when to his shock and dismay, his intended bride and future Queen has disappeared, and rumor has it that it was voluntarily! He won’t let this snafu and plot for revenge on an outsider’s part ruin his plan to strengthen his country, so he picks the closest woman and demands she ready herself to be his Queen!

Chambermaid Neisha Zalwani is quite taken aback when her King insists she has to marry him instantly. He woos her into thinking it’s only temporary until he finds his intended, but it doesn’t take her long to discover that he means it to be a permanent marriage … and honestly, by that point, she’s not regretting it all that much. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts!
