1988 (December), Silver Angel

Kidnapped and sold into slavery, Chantelle Burke was led into the Pasha’s scented chambers swearing she’d never surrender to this ruthless master. But she was stunned by the magnificently handsome man who awaited her amid the silk and splendor. His piercing emerald eyes held her in their power; his muscular embrace made her weak with desire even as she defied him. She was his to do with as he would.

Yet this mysterious stranger- whose eastern garb concealed his true identity- touched her only with tenderness, driving her wild with new sensation, his scorching kisses igniting the fires of her very soul . . . sweeping her beyond the harem walls into a palace of love’s eternal dream.

1977, Captive Bride

Johanna Lindsey. Captive Bride. New York: Avon Books, 1977.

From the moment Philip Caxton sets his eyes upon lovely Englishwoman Christine Wakefield, he knows that he must have her. Born half-Arab and known among his people as Sheik Abu, he plots to have her kidnapped and brought to his remote camp in the desert.

Christina is angry and frightened when she suddenly becomes the helpless captive of this strikingly handsome stranger…but is soon weakened by her heart’s blazing desire to explore her virile captor’s most sensuous cravings. Her idyllic time with Abu is interrupted when she is kidnapped again, this time by another tribe. This act was done in order to lure the sheik to their camp so that an act of revenge for a past misdeed may be carried out. Abu rushes to Christina’s rescue and, after escaping a slow death, brings his beloved back to the safety of his camp. But their happiness is shortlived when Christina is falsely told that Abu no longer desires her and wishes her to leave. With a broken heart, she leaves the desert to return to her past life in England.

But nothing will ever be the same, as she still loves Abu and fears she may never see him again. Or will she?
