      The desert king’s outrageous proposal!

      Marry a sheikh in return for a hefty financial reward? Shy researcher Jane Smith would normally have laughed in Zayed Al Zawba’s handsome face. Except it’s only for six months and the money will rescue her sister who’s mired in debt...

      Sheikh Zayed will do anything to inherit Kafalah’s neighboring oil-rich lands, even wed plain Jane: he’ll never long to consummate a marriage with her! But Zayed hasn’t bargained on Jane’s frumpy clothes hiding delicious curves...or her quick mind and untouched beauty teasing and tempting him beyond his wildest imaginings!

      ‘Unfortunately the bequest comes with a condition—which is that I must be married in order to inherit. And although the very idea is abhorrent to me I want that piece of land for my people,’ Zayed said, his voice growing deep with fervour. ‘So much so that I’m prepared to marry in order to get it.’

      ‘Then why not ask one of your many girlfriends?’ Jane questioned archly.

      ‘Because I don’t want love and I don’t wish to be tied to one woman—at least not until it is time for me to produce an heir. The union I propose with you will be nothing other than a means to an end. A brief union which I intend to be dissolved after six months.’

      She looked at him curiously. ‘On what grounds?’

      ‘Non-consummation, of course.’ He shrugged his powerful shoulders.

      Jane nodded, her heart pounding painfully against her ribcage, her mind working over the facts as she pieced together the intention behind his bizarre request. ‘So you decided to pick a woman to whom you were not in the least bit attracted?’

      ‘Exactly.’ He sat back in his chair, his black eyes lasering into her.

      ‘And I am that woman?’

      ‘You most certainly are. I cannot think of a more ideal candidate.’


      Conveniently wedded, passionately bedded!

      Whether there’s a debt to be paid, a will to be obeyed or a business to be saved…she’s got no choice but to say ‘I do!’

      But these billionaire bridegrooms have got another think coming if they think marriage will be that easy…

      Soon their convenient brides become the object of an inconvenient desire!
