Married to the Sheikh…
ER doctor Kate will do anything to save her family’s livelihood. So when the Sultan of Amberach offers her a lifeline in exchange for her working in his state-of-the-art hospital and marrying his nephew – gorgeous, brooding sheikh Dr. Fareed Faruke – it’s a deal Kate has to accept!
Fareed has always known he’ll never have a say in who he marries, but he’s shocked to see beautiful Kate behind the gold silk veil. She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want – and yet the only woman he can’t seem to resist…
Books come together in many ways – a little bit here and a little bit there. One of the ‘bits’ this time has now become legend in my family. Some forty years ago my mother-in-law went to see a woman who read cards to tell the future, and this woman told her that if she went away on a trip with her widowed son and his two teenage daughters she’d never have to worry about him again.
That night the son in question phoned her from interstate, where he lived, to ask her to go to India with him and the girls. She agreed – here was the trip the cards had foretold! I joined their flight in far-off Western Australia as the tour leader, and that’s how I met my husband and the two teenagers who have become my very loved daughters.
It still gives me shivers up the spine when I realise just how little we know of the part fate must play in our lives. I do hope fate is kind to you.
