He appeared in her life with the unexpected force of a desert sandstorm, sweeping her from terrifying danger into the sweet haven of his arms. Daniel Seifert was a fierce man, used to taking whatever he wanted, but Zilah, the spirited woman he’d risked his life to rescue, filled him instead with a passion to protect.

    " I was hoping for a short but powerfully packed story but what I got was a short story lacking in the normal punch Iris Johansen brings to her books. The most exciting part of the story was Daniel's ear and the plane blowing up. Zilah was naive and immature, considering how fast she had to grow up. "

    " This was an alright book. It was the man rescues the girl and they fall madly in love type of novel. I'm not huge on romance but Iris Johansen is one of my favorites so I thought I'd give it a try. "

    " Not too bad. A quick read that was rather heavy on the romance. I really liked the character of Pandora. She's really quirky and I hope to see more of her in another book. "

    " A reprint of a chapter in Johansen's Loveswept series centering around fascinating characters from a fictional country in the Mideast. A wonderful mix of romance and paranormal elements (written well before the current explosion) filled with strong female and male characters. "
