eARC: Heir to a Desert Legacy by Maisey Yates
Chloe James helped her half-sister have a baby, but an unfortunate accident happen before she arrived before the birth. A hope of a nation vanished, with the death of her half-sister and brother-in-law. Not knowing what to do with the child, Chloe decides to protect the child no matter what. After all she had been the surrogate for her half-sister.
Sayid al Kadar was never meant to rule the country, but be the protect of the land now finds himself as Sheik of the land. Finds vital information that might give him a reprieve of the situation. YAY, he might not have to rule, if he is able to find the baby.
Honestly I really enjoyed this story. The main reason I enjoyed Heir to a Desert Legacy was the damaged hero and heroine. Both of them came from past that was filled with violence. For instance, with Chloe's upbringing she was afraid to become like her mother and try everything in her power to avoid being like her. Even isolate herself from relationships and dive right in academics for safety. Sayid being born as a second son and wasn't raised by his parents, but his uncle to be the protector of the land. His uncle would use whatever measure to instill this philosophy, even use whatever Sayid cared the most would be used against him. So, he was taught to be desensitize to anything around him. Both of these characters had to overcome these challenges. Each are both of afraid to let the other in, because of fear.
Bottom line, I enjoyed this story. I found the story compelling and hoping that Chloe and Sayid would come to there senses. Maisey Yates was able to captivate me with her story telling ability. So, if you are looking for something set in the desert and damage hero and heroine, you might want to check out Heir to a Desert Legacy.
