READ AND REVIEW
KISMET BY MONICA BURNS
In the heat of the desert night, passion rises like a flame...
Raised in a brothel, Allegra Synnford quickly learned that survival meant taking charge of her destiny. Now, as a renowned courtesan skilled in the pleasures of the flesh, she vows she will never be vulnerable to any one man...
Sheikh Shaheen of the Amazigh has been hiding from his past for a long time, but not enough to forget how another courtesan made him abandon his life as the Viscount Newcastle. When Allegra ignites his desire, his need threatens to undermine his cover.
With old enemies circling, experience tells him he must resist her charms at all costs. But Allegra has her own game to play...with a man who can't afford to lose.
REVIEW: KISMET BY MONICA BURNS
Kismet by Monica Burns
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Kismet certainly had the goods to be a fascinating a sensuous read. Allegra is the kind of heroine authors and readers dream of. She's gutsy, brave, instinctive and not afraid of using her body to get what she wants. I found this sad because she was actually a very smart woman with a good head on her shoulders and a courageous spirit but her life was a troubled one that led her to do whatever necessary to survive. The sheikh on the other hand is a man of many secrets. The path he travels is full of suspicion, intrigue and control. He has to be alert at all times to keep one step ahead of his enemies. Kismet is a story that revolves around hidden agendas, destroying secrets and a turbulent relationship that is as contradictory as the lives of it's main characters.
