Review: Lost to the Desert Warrior, by Sarah Morgan

Title: Lost to the Desert Warrior
Author: Sarah Morgan



"Walking into the lion's den unprotected, Princess?" For Layla, princess of Tazkhan, her arranged marriage means one thing—a lifetime of cruelty and captivity. Such an unendurable prospect drives her to throw herself at the mercy of Sheikh Raz Al Zahki—her family's greatest enemy!
Raz demands one thing in return for the safe haven Layla is seeking—this brooding desert king wants to make her his queen! Her freedom might be secured, but now her heart is at risk, for soon she's lost to the scorching heat of their marriage bed. However, it will take more than fire to thaw her guarded husband….



Unbelievable! There really is a reason why I love this kind of stories so much. I don’t exactly know how to explain it, but all Harlequin Romances whose stories have something to do with deserts and sheiks make me feel intrigued and, somehow, I simply just can’t resist reading them.
Sarah Morgan created an amazing story, with a strong plot and realistic details. Although part of the action takes place in the desert, she quickly changed it to a big house where true royalty could live and have access to incredible luxuries—properties, parties, cloths, jewels… Of course that I believe these characters live part of their lives in the desert, but it is quite difficult to accept that they’re there all the time. Well, it definitely was a great beginning with the death of Layla’s father because it became clear to me that she was going to have to marry someone to maintain control of the land, what I wasn’t expecting was for her to run away in order to look for a safety place with her family’s worst enemy. It was a dangerous choice, but it was something needed for herself and her sister to get out of Hassan’s hands.
Sadly, I think all happened too soon! I know Harlequin’s books are rather small, but the characters fell in love too soon and I discovered the traitor almost right in the beginning. I believe there could be some sort of continuation, with the author writing a story with Layla’s sister and Raz’s brother has protagonists this time. They were in the desert, alone, for so long that something could have happened between them… I sure can dream, can’t I?
Overall, it was a sweet story that I enjoyed reading very much.
