N them under the desert stars But murder and betrayal turn their uest into a deadly game pushing their fragile trust to the breaking point A trust that must be reforged if they are to surviveThis book has been previously published by Samhain PublishingWarning Contains a half blood prince of the desert whose tortured Bedouin heart beats beneath a proper English cravat And an American archaeologist who’ll go a long way to fulfil her drea. While the setting and attraction between the two leads is fantastic and I absolutely adored what a strong feisty heroine Alex was I hated all the lying and misunderstandings that provided the conflict for the romance It fell into an easy pattern act on attraction argue not speak to each other Then at the start of the next chapter one or the other would rationalize the last argument and it would all get swept under the rug starting the whole process all over again It got very tedious by 23's of the way through the story

Mirage by Monica BurA sheikh without a country A woman without fear A love hotter than the SaharaIn his heart Viscount Blakeney will always be Sheikh Altair Mazir but a deathbed oath to his English grandfather forces him to divide his time between Britain and his beautiful Sahara A victim of prejudice from both cultures he has learned a bitter lesson Trust no oneYet when he witnesses firsthand the British Museum’s rejection of Alexandra Talbot’s reuest. Actually 3 12 starsThis story had a very interesting setting the Arabian desert in the 1880's The lead characters were searching for a lost tomb so there were a lot of Egyptian tomb references that reminded me of the movie The Mummy which I really likeThe two main characters were interesting especially the half Bedouin half English hero Sheikh Altair Mazir who goes along on the uest into the desert with the heroine Alexandra Talbot is an American woman who has studied archeology with her deceased father and is intent of finding the tomb her father and uncle were obsessed with The pair is attracted to each from the time they meet in England when Altair decides to accompany her into the desert since he corresponded with her father and was supposed to escort him He decides not to tell the heroine who he really is because he is afraid she will reject him for his half Bedouin blood They set out for the desert and begin the task of finding the hidden tomb that plays a big part in his tribe's history and is guarded by an ancient prophesyWhile I really enjoyed the setting I was very annoyed with how the romance played out The book was full of misunderstandings and the hero lying and betraying the heroine for one dumb reason after another It felt very contrived and became pretty annoying because every time they started to grow closer something would pop up and push them away from each other for another few weeks The author created a very neat setting and some pretty interesting characters but lost points with me for too many misunderstandings between the lead characters

Alex Talbot is a woman on a mission she's determined to complete her father's work and discover the ancient Egyptian city of Per Ramesses She storms the hallowed halls of the British Museum to get a look at the Rosetta Stone in order to verify her translation of certain hieroglyphs There she encounters Lord Altair Blakeney aka Sheikh Altair Mazir who it happens has been corresponding with her father and who has agreed to guide her expedition in the desert Here's the problem Altair is instantly attracted to her and he's suffered humiliation and rejection at the hands of English who despise his half Arab heritage So he decides to pretend he's just Blakeney and the resulting deception gets and elaborate A major plot point revolves around fictitious history of a pharoah marrying a Bedouin girl so the story departs a bit from history and goes a little Indiana Jones on you about 34 the way through Also I don't get as much of a sense of tribal life among the Bedouin this time around so this one loses a point But it's a good enough read that I'll check out of Burns' work
