How deep into the darkness will she have to go to help bring him into the light?
Oil baronness Lily Harkness isn't so much steel magnolia as titanium cactus. She's used to living in a man's world and when she plays, she plays to win. She wants exclusive oil rights to ensure her company remains at the top and she's not walking away empty handed.
Sheikh Isma'il al Zahara rules his country his way. Always in command, he has his own plans for his country's oil and it's not just about the money. But he's intrigued by the buttoned up business woman who's come to his country to strike a deal. He can't help but wonder what's beneath her icy facade.
Lily's desires are buried down deep, but her attraction to Isma'il is too strong to deny. Will seducing the sheikh cost Lily her body and her soul?

For some reason, I just didn't want to read this one. Sure, it was free and all, but something was telling me not to read it. But since the file on my eReader was about to expire, I decided to go for it.
And I discovered the reason I didn't want to read it in the first place. My gut was telling me not to. And my gut is never wrong.
After just a few digital pages, I simply didn't care. I didn't care about the heroine, I didn't care about the hero, I didn't care about their issues (they both had those), and I didn't care what happened.
I skimmed through most of it, hoping against hope the ending would inspire me to read it again, truly read it. And after the ending...I still didn't care.
