Badra sought refuge in the Sahara, but there was no true escape from the sheikh who'd stolen her childhood. The villain had proven her long dark hair and lush body aroused a passion in men that meant only pain, and neither his death nor protection by her rescuers, the Khamsin, the Warriors of the Wind, changed that. Badra could no more forget it than one Khamsin's burning sapphire eyes. And she could no more accept the feelings Khepri aroused than she could admit the secret shadowing her heart.
