Binte El Qadir is Keeper of the Flame. As Flame Keeper, Kayla
must remain a virgin or be cursed by her goddess. The idea of
being celibate has not been a problem for Kayla – until now.
Now, Kayla has found a man to make her question her duties.
Now, Kayla has found a man to make her want to discover all
the ways a man and woman can please each other. But will this
man, the Sultan, want her -- especially if he discovers her
Sayyid El Zafir is ruler of the country of Khatarza and uses
his alternate form, Black Wolf, to help protect his people.
For generations, his family has been burdened with a curse
and, through Tariq, the curse will manifest itself unless he
finds the right woman to break it. If not, the beast that is
within Tariq will grow stronger and cause Tariq to lose all of
his humanity on his next birthday. All of his senses have
been captured by Kayla, but how can she be the right one when
she must remain a virgin to stay the Keeper of the Flame.
Would she shun him once she learns of Black Wolf?
Kayla are a very loving and sensual couple. I enjoyed how
they showed their desire for each other through both their
actions and words. The only thing that bothered me was the
“big secret” they kept from each other. Of course, the story
would have been shorter without the use of this particular
device, but I’ve never been a big fan of self-imposed
difficulties brought about because each person was afraid to
talk to the other. Deadly Desires is a good
read. But I wish the author would have given as much
attention to the “deadly” part as she did to the “desire.”
