A successful romance author, Sabine Santiago's latest book is about hot desert sands and a sexy caravan prince. She's dreamt of him every night since buying a coiling viper armband at her local flea market. Little does she know the trinket is about to transport her to another world.
Tariq Sayed is the Viper Prince of Jikkar. For a millennia, the six princes of the Golden Desert have ruled their caravans, providing water for their people and protection from the hot desert sun. Punishment for stealing water is death, so what is Tariq to do when the woman he’s been dreaming of is caught drinking from his oasis?
When their worlds collide, Sabine is dropped right into the plot of one of her books. One look at the sexy Viper, and it's clear that the line between fiction and reality is slim to none. But Tariq has been promised to wed the niece of the Jackal Prince, which will form a strong alliance for his people.
Now, the Viper must choose between his duty and the woman who burns his very soul.
I finally managed to read my way to the first story in this series. And I find this one...different, though not in a bad way. The heroine comes from “our” world, and is dumped into a realm she always thought came from her own imagination. This gives her a different perspective on the events she finds herself thrust into.
Tariq is a fairly classic knight in shining armor, complete with riding off the into unknown danger to save the damsel in distress. He exhibits great compassion...and later passion, for this stranger who all but literally fell into his life.
This is also the first nod we get to the other princes, thus helping to complete the picture I have only been getting pieces of up until now. Though I have to wonder how, if all of these great men had horribly abusive fathers, they turned out to be so compassionate.
The sex is what I have come to expect from this series, though some are a bit more fanciful due to the special connection of Sabine and Tariq.
Overall, I still love this series.
