Sold...to a gorgeous desert prince! It was bad enough being hauled out of bed by palace guards. Now Victoria McCallan had just offered to pay off her father's gambling debts - with herself as the prize! So the palace secretary was shocked when sexy Prince Kateb made her a counteroffer... When Kateb whisked Victoria off to the desert to be his mistress for six months, the widowed ruler had no intention of falling in love. Duty decreed the El Deharia sheikh should wed a proper mate. But Kateb's heart was telling him to claim Victoria as his woman - now and forever.
