Category release alert: To Tempt a Sheik, by Olivia Gates

31 Jan

To Tempt A SheikhTomorrow, February 1st, Harlequin will release a number of category titles. Among them is Egyptian author Olivia Gates‘s To Tempt a Sheikh. (Available at eHarlequin, both as a print and as an electronic book)

Born of the desert. Bound to the throne.

He rescued hostage Talia Burke from his royal family’s rival tribe and swept her into his strong embrace. But Prince Harres Aal Shalaan soon discovered there was more to the brave beauty than he knew. Talia held information vital to protecting his beloved kingdom…and she had every reason not to trust him.

Marooned together at a desert oasis, Talia couldn’t resist Harres. Yet even as his sizzling seduction entranced her, his loyalty to his family and country would always make them enemies. Falling for the sheikh would be her heart’s greatest mistake…but she feared it was already too late….

Some of you may remember that I’ve read and reviewed a number of Ms Gates’s previous novels (here, here, here and here).

To Tempt a Sheikh is the second book in the Pride of Zohayd, Ms Gates’s latest trilogy. It is also the trilogy’s second top pick by Romantic Times Book Reviews.




As most of you know, due to the current unrest in Egypt, communication via email or the internet has been shut down. This means that Ms Gates is unable, at this time, to promote her new release. Obviously this is a very small thing compared to the many ill effects this situation has on many, many people–both in Egypt and elsewhere. However, as a lover of romance and as someone who admires and appreciates Ms Gates, it bothers me to think of the adverse effect this can have on Ms Gates’s book sales.

So even though, I am ashamed to admit, I didn’t connect the dots by myself, I hasten to correct my oversight now that Bonnie Vanak has pointed it out to me.
