They had probably never even heard of the Balfours out here in the desert. Bella Balfour, fashion icon and wild child, is not enjoying herself. Her father has sent her to the middle of nowhere - it must be to punish her for her scandalous behaviour. She has to get back to civilisation! So Bella steals a horse and heads for the nearest city: the sheikhdom of Al-Rafid. Bella finds herself trapped in the desert with devastatingly gorgeous Sheikh Zafiq Al-Rafid and, on a whim, pretends to be an anonymous, everyday girl. But when the two leave their idyllic oasis for real life, will Bella be able to convince the Sheikh that she's changed her party-girl ways?
