Desert Rogues is a series of romance novels written by a bestselling American author of romance and fiction novels Susan Mallery. Mallery began the publication of Desert Rogues in 2000 when The Sheik’s Kidnapped Bride the first novel in the series was published. Each book in Desert Rogues series focuses on women falling for wealthy sheiks, and each book is a standalone and the series can be read in any order.

The Sheik’s Kidnapped Bride

The first book in Desert Rogues series is a beautiful story of a woman by the name Dora having an affair with her boss Gerald. The two had plans of escaping to Boston and start a new life. However, one day while Dora was having her wedding dress fitted; Gerald took off leaving her stranded in the remote Kansas runaway.

In the meantime, a Prince from El Bahar stops in the same Kansas airport to fuel his private jet and also pick up his assistant. The young Prince comes across a blonde woman on the runway yelling his name. The prince offers the young woman (Dora) a flight to New York City as she has nothing, no ID, money or anything else.

While on the private jet, the Prince discovers that his new assistance cannot to some basic paperwork and in response, he request Dora to help since he needs the paperwork before they reach New York City.

Dora does the work for the Prince and also prepares coffee, and when they finally arrive in New York, he fires his new assistant and requests Dora to work for him for a period of two weeks. Desperate for work, Dora agrees, and the prince purchases her couple of business outfits.

It turns out that Prince Khalil is in a forced marriage to a beautiful but sleazy Amber. He wants to find a way out of this engagement, but he cannot explain it without causing significant damage to the political solidity of his country.

Amber’s father is El Bahar’s prime minister, and he would be humiliated if he discovered of his daughter’s prostitute ways such that he would be forced to resign. On his way to New York, Khalil meets the beautiful Dora- the ultimate solution to this problem and immediately does not hesitate to lie and convince her to marry him. After all, he is prince Khalil of Khan. The first book in the series is a beautiful romance, full of clichés, and misunderstanding caused by the jealous ex-fiancé. Khalil is a brilliant hero, the romance in the story is well woven, and the plotline flows smoothly from chapter to the next.

The Sheik & the Princess Bride

Billie Van Horn is considered as one of the guys because, first she is a well-trained fighter pilot and instructor, and secondly, she works with her overprotective father and brothers. If a man interested in her is not turned off by the first option, he tends to get frightened by the second.

Then there is Prince Jefri of Bahania who meets Billie during his work while establishing a joint air force with the City of Thieves and El Bahar. However his royal pride is stung by the continuous defeats at the hands of the charming Billie, but he is also at the same time intrigued and attracted to her.

Meanwhile, King Hassan decides that it be time for Prince Jefri to marry again- after his wife has been a total mess. Apparently, the youngest prince of Bahania has not yet met his perfect woman up to this point, and he is more interested in the air force project rather than finding a woman, and so he agrees to an arranged marriage and soon enough forgets about the whole thing.

In Billie, Prince Jefri finds not only a gorgeous woman but also an independent woman who shares his greatest passion for flight. However, when Jefri fiancée arrives unannounced, things take a twisted turn and heartbreak seems inevitable.

The characterization in The Sheik and the Princess Bride is brilliantly done- both Jefri and Billie had both good and bad times- and they often overcome the bad times together. The plot is plausible, and the characters are relatable.

The Sheik & The Princess in Waiting

The Sheik and the Princess in Waiting introduce the readers to Emma Kennedy and Reyhan. The two met back in college, but little did Emma know that the man she had come to love was a prince in one of the states in the Middle East. Out of nowhere, an employee of the United States Department knocks at her Dallas apartment to issue and request her that she accepts a two-week invitation to Bahania. Upon her arrival, Emma is surprised to meet the man that she had thought had made a fool of her with a fake marriage.

Meanwhile, Prince Reyhan initially thought that Emma had turned him down when he returned to claim her after having a family emergency. He hates the fact that his love for Emma and the later rejection had weakened him back then and even now he is still in love with her, and also she always seems to hold him a prisoner.

Reyhan is determined and will do anything it takes to get the king’s approval for a divorce, but soon Emma starts to believe that marriage to the Prince might be worth the risk.
