With a client list hotter than the Zubran desert, wedding planner Avery Scott shouldn’t be surprised that her latest client is Crown Prince Malik of Zubran—the man who once lit her body on fire…before steamrollering over her heart.
Determined to ignore Malik’s lethal charm, Avery makes a very personal not-to-do list:
1. Not being Malik’s intended, our relationship must remain 100 percent professional.
2. His arranged bride might have run away, but I mustn’t distract him—for the kings of Zubran, duty always comes first.
3. However luxurious the Bedouin tent—and smoldering the tension—pride dictates the touch I crave stays strictly forbidden.
