In that time she'd become a sensation with the rock group Nemesis, toured the world, and grown up, but she never forgot the promise she made herself.
Now Pandora was ready to return to the desert state of Sedikhan and the man she'd loved too soon and too much. Sheik Philip El Kabbar was a businessman whose power and influence extended throughout the world--but for six long years he'd been unable to find the woman he still considered it his duty to protect. She'd come back on her own terms and to take the kind of erotic gamble that Philip always won.
Only this time he wasn't sure that in winning they wouldn't both lose what matters most. Or that in loving her, he wouldn't be hurting them both. Seller Inventory BZV More information about this seller Contact this seller.

Book Description Penguin Random House. Brand New. Book Description Bantam Books, Condition: Brand New. In Stock. Adverbs ending in "ily" and "ly" were so overused! I think the characters had speech defects, because much of what they said was spoken " huskily".
Over and over again. And again. What saved this book for me was the character of a gypsy woman, and I'll not spoil it for other readers by telling the things she does, is, or how she became involved with Donahue, other than she is faithful, devoted, and committed to Clancy. Good story Enjoyed a very romantic story. Happy ending the story was short but enjoyed it.
May 30, Michaela rated it liked it. Definitely not one of her most powerful nor captivating. Jan 31, Julie rated it did not like it Shelves: reading-challenge , adult. Not the same caliber as the Mysteries. Feb 12, Diana rated it it was ok Shelves: romance-contemporary , audiobooks , soa-review.
Always was originally published by Loveswept in and does it ever show its age. But things rolled merrily along once I adjusted to romancelandia-speak and sensibilities.
Clancy Donahue is head of security for Sheikh Alex of a fictional middle eastern emirite. Her plan to flounce off Paradise Key island is thwarted when Clancy knocks her out with drugs and literally carries her off to his luxury lair. Are you still with me? Oh, Lisa. Lucky for her Clancy came along. Her reading is error-free, smooth, and well paced. I am more appreciative of subtle narration than I am of overripe actor melodrama that detracts from the material. So, nice job, Ms. To anyone too young to remember how things really were in , please know that drugging and kidnapping women was not okay in real life — just in soap operas and romance.
It was fun! Mar 24, Elizabeth Noah Astle rated it liked it. I am a big fan of the IJ Eve Duncan series.
I saw this book and thought great! I would love this.. I have to admit that I was not crazy about this book as it just did not feel complete to me. Clancy is out to trap a guy named Martin Baldwin and uses Lisa, a singer and Baldwin ex-wife. Lisa does not go for the idea so Clancy decides to 'kidnap' Lisa and use her a bait. Then suddenly Clancy is in love with Lisa after just a few days but, Lisa is mad as heck at the situation and that she is being used to get Martin. Clancy takes Lisa to castle to keep her safe there, next thing you know it is four months later and Lisa and Clancy are together.

Yes it pretty goes from arriving at the castle to fast forward four months. Then you read about the next few days and the book ends. I have not read any of the previous books in the series so maybe if I did it would answer some questions and I would have liked this book more. I do like a good romance but, this just seemed a bit off to me. Lisa Landon, a professional singer, accepts an invitation to sing at an island resort little knowing that it is a plot orchestrated to lure her former husband and current stalker into a trap set by Clancy Donahue. Clancy, the head of security for a small desert nation known as Sedikhan, asks her to participate in the scheme.
When she declines, he merely kidnaps her, setting the stage for a simple love story. This is a rerelease of and earlier Iris Johansen book, and shows clearly how she has Lisa Landon, a professional singer, accepts an invitation to sing at an island resort little knowing that it is a plot orchestrated to lure her former husband and current stalker into a trap set by Clancy Donahue.

However, I did it again--I got a book that seems to have a predecessor --I think I am already supposed to be familiar with Clancy Donahue, so I think I am at a disadvantage, but I will write more to this review upon completion of the novel. Why it was re-released after 20 years, I do not know. Nice romance story. Love at first sight that is. Does that really happen in real life? Iris Johansen sure does hit the spot with what young women could only dream of in a storybook romance.
I didn't realize that this was deep into a series when I picked it up. Hadn't read Johansen in a while.
I expected more of a suspense piece and less of a fairly straight forward romance couched, or in this case bedded in a suspense genre. Fairly detailed descriptions. Another great read by Johansen I have not read the earlier Sedikhan books but I liked this one so much I will be reading more of them as I come across them in E-book or print format. Don't have money to spend so don't buy many. Jan 13, Marie Maywalt rated it it was ok. Easy read, somewhat unrealistic plot.
Feb 29, Rosanne Bartlett rated it really liked it. Nice, a good fast reader. Great ending. Apr 10, Anne Dart rated it liked it. Not my favorite Johansen book.
In fact, it was probably my least favorite, therefore getting just an "OK" rating. Great Great story. You never wanted to put it down. She always has great stories. Always look for the books she has written. Jun 26, Kare rated it did not like it. This book read like a Harlequin romance. Much to mushy and full of sex.

I love other books my Iris Johansen,but did not like this at all! Jun 29, Qurat rated it it was ok. Very typical, the male character was somewhat better specimen of romantic heroes. Mar 13, Julie rated it it was ok. A fast beach read that takes place in an exotic local. Nov 20, Alice rated it it was ok. This is just one of those library kindle books that was in stock when I was checking out what was available.
A quick little read, nothing too memorable about it. Insipid Romance if you like fairy tales and heroes, you will enjoy yet another predictable romance. Oct 29, Jackie Simons added it.
