Awakened-by-Her-Desert-CaptorIn Awakened by Her Desert Captor by Abby Green, Cabaret dancer Sylvie Devereux and Sheikh Arkim Al-Sahid have never seen eye to eye—not from their first antagonistic meeting to their last intoxicating kiss. And certainly not when she publicly stops his convenient society wedding to her beloved sister!

Now Arkim wants revenge on the sinful seductress who cost him the respectable reputation he needs.

Luring Sylvie to his luxurious palace in the desert, he’ll get her out of his system once and for all. But with her sass and sequins stripped away, Sylvie is surprisingly vulnerable—and there’s one last secret Arkim’s not prepared for…her innocence!

This was a well written romance which did not have a clear story-line but it did have enough drama to keep me going. Arkim is an alpha hero whose actions left little to be desired. I don’t like heroes who tend to be on the jerk side and therefore I did not like him much for the major part. Sylvie is a caring heroine and I liked her but she was very immature and not strong enough to face Arkim. The romance is passionate but there is not much buildup and in the end it feels a little anticlimactic. Overall,a good book but it did not even come close to the author’s previous more spectacular books.
