Abigail ‘Abbie’ Cavanaugh was deeply worried about her brother, Andy, who was imprisoned in the foreign country known as Barakhara for stealing religious artifacts from an archaeological dig he was working with.  A representative for the Sheikh of Barakhara approaches her father with the Sheikh’s conditions for Andy’s release.  In exchange for Andy’s safe return to America, Abbie must agree to marry him without delay.  Thinking the representative is actually the Sheikh himself, Abbie decides it won’t be too much of a hardship being his wife, judging from the way the man fills out his clothes.  But what will happen when she finally realizes this isn’t the man she has agreed to wed?

Having gone to America to represent his half-brother, Jalil, the Sheikh of Barakhara, Sheikh Malik bin Rashid Al’Qaim was instantly intrigued by the pretty blonde woman he spied through the window at Sir James Cavanaugh’s home.  Later after meeting her face to face, and thinking she was just a maid, he propositioned her to meet him at his hotel for a night of passionate lovemaking when he realized the intense sexual attraction they felt for each other.  However, when Abbie shows up that evening and the action begins to heat up, a few whispered words are enough to throw ice water on the raging fire of their passion.  Can the misunderstandings on both of their parts be straightened out?
