Gavin Burk was enjoying his solitude life until a close friend calls on his services for a dangerous mission. His expertise is required to protect Prince Ali Zahar and discover the culprit behind the escalating assassination attempts.

Ali isn’t a born leader, but does what he must for his small country, Jurru. The position was already difficult to deal with but the attempts hurting those surrounding the Sheik has added more stress to his life. The longer his tenure is drawn out, the more Ali feels trapped. Having Gavin’s support helps him through this trying time while giving them a chance at a future filled with happiness and love

Even with the knowledge of the threats and an uncertainty about people he should be able to trust, Ali stands by his convictions and only wants the best for his country and its inhabitants. When I first met him, his strength and genuine caring nature made me wonder why he wouldn’t be the leader, but as I read further along, I discovered he didn’t have the cool and calculated temperament necessary for that particular role. He leads with his heart on his sleeve, until someone he loves is harmed.

Gavin’s pain is still fresh. With so many believing his theory on a past event to be false, he doesn’t allow anyone close because he is sure the danger is real and still exists. The men heat up the pages with delicious erotic scenes designed to make readers melt. Carol Lynne has created yet another fantastic story for the Bodyguards in Love series. As always she throws in a hint about the next story’s main characters and I’m so excited to see who’s up for the chance to be bitten by the love bug.

Ms. Lynne’s Seducing the Sheik is a mixture of action, suspense, family drama, and the theme of new beginnings. It’s a fascinating story sure to have you begging for more.
