plagued with doubts that his wife could love him in spite of his physical deformity Overall, a delightful quick read I love marriage of convenience stories Hero was the most romantic loving husband ever Lucky heroine is lucky Yes I am jealous of a fictional heroine lol Note There isn t an official series connecting the books, but Desert Warrior can be considered a prequel to Craving Beauty The

start of a courtship in which the heroine has a million preconceptions and throws them all at the hero at the speed of ninja stars.The hero on the other hand is also an orphan with a traumatic past and a scarred body hoping to find love in the heroine, who immediately confesses her love for OM and starts acting like a shrew.50% of the book is the heroine being a giant whiny d ck, and the hero losing his temper and walking away.Things change a little when she realizes her error and starts to give in the lovemaking scenes which take place then as well as the scenes at the orphanage were heart wrenching ly good.Then again some drama takes place and we are back to square one.In the end it was like two scarred, scared cats slowly pawing at each other s defenses..What I did like apart from the sex and angst was the adorable way the heroine spoke in broken english, her zest for education but the ending was a mess as nothing was resolved and things ended abruptly view spoiler Did they ever adopt the nine kids as the twins got taken away Did they have their own ones Did she ever study Did he support her mother hide spoiler A lot of disappointed after the great book 1.Safe2 5

found this to be a beautiful story, and would recommend it to fans of the genre 3.5 stars I am a huge fan of Nalini Singh so of course, grab anything she s written These Silhouette books were written earlier in her career This was a good book and written well but so many times I wanted to hit the hero upside the head, hence his addition to my hero needs a slap upside his head shelf He certainly

English slang, but at times she seemed just a bit too perfect.However, having written all of that it was still a good book to read and a sweet love story You were better than the alternative HiraBut

About the Author: Nalini Singh

I ve been writing as long as I can remember and all of my stories always held a thread of romance even when I was writing about a prince who could shoot lasers out of his eyes I love creating unique characters, love giving them happy endings and I even love the voices in my head There s no other job I would rather be doing In September 2002, when I got the call that Silhouette Desire wanted to buy my first book, Desert Warrior, it was a dream come true I hope to continue living the dream until I keel over of old age on my keyboard.I was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand I also spent three years living and working in Japan, during which time I took the chance to travel around Asia I m back in New Zealand now, but I m always plotting new trips If you d like to see some of my travel snapshots, have a look at the Travel Diary page updated every month.So far, I ve worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher and not necessarily in that order Some might call that inconsistency but I call it grist for the writer s mill.
