Release day: The Sultan’s Harem Bride
Today is the official release of The Sultan’s Harem Bride by Annie West (paperback, Mills and Boon). Here’s the
Sultan Asim of Jazeer has hundreds of women at his beck and call. So why does he want the only one who threatens to reveal his family’s shameful secrets?
Journalist Jacqui Fletcher jumped at the chance to write a history of the harem—not to become a sultan’s plaything! But it’s hard to remember her assignment when the sultan’s sensuous caresses spark a fire she’s never experienced before…
Asim is looking for a pliable princess for a marriage of duty. Brave, beautiful Jacqui couldn’t be more wrong for him. So why does holding her feel so right?
Annie dropped by today to tell us a little about her book:
This story has been a long time coming. I came up with the idea quite a few years ago at a Romance Writers of Australia conference and was thrilled as it had so many features I adore: a powerful hero who thinks he knows exactly what he wants and is used to getting his own way without fail. A feisty heroine who hides her vulnerability by standing up for her dreams and her professional goals no matter how daunting the odds. An ugly duckling element that made my heroine so appealing. A touch of mystery. A lot of intense passion set against romantic settings. And a bride from the harem! Sadly a few other things intervened and it took a while to write this, the first in my Desert Vows duet. But the wait was worth it. I adore this story and I’m thrilled that it’s on sale now for you to enjoy. I hope you do!
