"I didn't come here to talk about your damned marriage," she pointedly brought the conversation to a close. There was no purpose in going around in circles. "I came to ask for your help." "Yes, I know." He was angry now. It was futile attempting to conceal it. The negative emotion fired his blood as lava might a volcano. "You came here for money." His breath was ragged. "And what would I get for my two hundred thousand dollars?" He demanded, his expression inscrutable. For the first time, Abi saw him as an implacable ruler; a man used to getting everything he wanted. It was intimidating. She swallowed nervously. "More than you know," she whispered the words, thinking of their son -- sick and scared on the other side of the world. With the exalted Sheikh Kiral Mazroui's wedding to a much-loved princess only days away, the last thing he expects is for an American lover from his past to arrive at his palace begging for help!

She'd fallen in love with a man, completely ignorant of his exalted status as ruler of one of the most powerful countries in the world. Miserable and alone in the wake of his departure, the discovery of her pregnancy leaves her with one unshakable belief: if The Sheikh knew of the baby they'd made, he'd take it away and raise it with his new wife. But when their son turns two, Abigail realizes they can no longer keep the child's existence a secret. A heart condition places him in a life or death scenario that only an expensive operation can hope to heal. Still terrified of the consequences, but far more terrified of losing her little boy for good, Abigail flies to the magical-seeming desert kingdom of Delani to ask the one man she's most afraid of to intervene for the sake of their son. The tangled web of secrets, lies, love and lust continue to weave around this couple and all the while the mythical belief in an ancient tale of The First Sheikh of Delani colours their decisions. With a little boy's life in the balance and the fate of the country on Kiral's shoulders, will he be able to choose between his heart and his honour, his duty and his desire? A full-length desert romance by Amazon best-seller and all-star Clare Connelly.

Abigail I was in big trouble. The biggest. Running out of time, I turned to him. Jacob Winters promised he'd solve all my problems. All I had to do was become his pet. With some men, that kind of deal might have been a nightmare. Jacob Winters was a dream come true. I was raised to be a lady, not a man's plaything. But with Jacob, I almost had it all; pleasure like I'd never known and protection from the danger stalking me. Was it greedy to want more? I had his body, but I wanted his heart. I told myself it was just sex. We were providing each other a mutual service, nothing more. Right? I couldn't possibly be foolish enough to fall in love with him. Jacob I must have been crazy. I'd wanted Abigail for years, I won't deny it. But I don't pursue married women, and her husband was a disaster waiting to happen. Everything about Abigail warned me to steer clear, including the lady herself. Some women might cheat, but not her. Abigail was too noble for her own good. Beautiful and untouchable. Then her husband was murdered and every dark shadow he'd held back came after Abigail at once. She was on the run, and I was the only man who could save her. The best things come to men who wait, and I'd been waiting. Abigail was mine. I didn't want a girlfriend. I definitely didn't need a wife. I just wanted her. In my home. In my bed. I was going to own every inch of her elegantly curved body. I'd keep her for as long as I wanted her, and then we'd both walk away. What could possibly go wrong?

If the Oceans Were Ink
Author: Carla Power
Publisher: Holt Paperbacks
PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST • NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST • Hailed by The Washington Post as “mandatory reading,” and praised by Fareed Zakaria as “intelligent, compassionate, and revealing,” a powerful journey to help bridge one of the greatest divides shaping our world today. If the Oceans Were Ink is Carla Power's eye-opening story of how she and her longtime friend Sheikh Mohammad Akram Nadwi found a way to confront ugly stereotypes and persistent misperceptions that were cleaving their communities. Their friendship-between a secular American and a madrasa-trained sheikh-had always seemed unlikely, but now they were frustrated and bewildered by the battles being fought in their names. Both knew that a close look at the Quran would reveal a faith that preached peace and not mass murder; respect for women and not oppression. And so they embarked on a yearlong journey through the controversial text. A journalist who grew up in the Midwest and the Middle East, Power offers her unique vantage point on the Quran's most provocative verses as she debates with Akram at cafes, family gatherings, and packed lecture halls, conversations filled with both good humor and powerful insights. Their story takes them to madrasas in India and pilgrimage sites in Mecca, as they encounter politicians and jihadis, feminist activists and conservative scholars. Armed with a new understanding of each other's worldviews, Power and Akram offer eye-opening perspectives, destroy long-held myths, and reveal startling connections between worlds that have seemed hopelessly divided for far too long. Praise for If the Oceans Were Ink “A vibrant tale of a friendship.... If the Oceans Were Ink is a welcome and nuanced look at Islam [and] goes a long way toward combating the dehumanizing stereotypes of Muslims that are all too common.... If the Oceans Were Ink should be mandatory reading for the 52 percent of Americans who admit to not knowing enough about Muslims.”—The Washington Post “For all those who wonder what Islam says about war and peace, men and women, Jews and gentiles, this is the book to read. It is a conversation among well-meaning friends—intelligent, compassionate, and revealing—the kind that needs to be taking place around the world.”—Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World “Carla Power’s intimate portrait of the Quran, told with nuance and great elegance, captures the extraordinary, living debate over the Muslim holy book’s very essence. A spirited, compelling read.”—Azadeh Moaveni, author of Lipstick Jihad “Unique, masterful, and deeply engaging. Carla Power takes the reader on an extraordinary journey in interfaith understanding as she debates and discovers the Quran’s message, meaning, and values on peace and violence, gender and veiling, religious pluralism and tolerance.”—John L. Esposito, University Professor and Professor of Islamic Studies, Georgetown University, and author of The Future of Islam “A thoughtful, provocative, intelligent book.”—Diana Abu-Jaber, author of Birds Of Paradise and The Language of Baklava
