His duty, her dreams, undone by their desire…
In the male-dominated oil industry, executive Olivia McInnes plays a careful game – she's cold, uncompromising, and ambitious as hell. Once she seals the deal to drill in the clear waters of Saqat, she'll finally prove herself worthy to take the reins of her father's oil company. Her only obstacle is marine biologist – and Saqat's royal heir – Sheih Khaled Ibm Saqat , who's determined to protect both his people and his country from environmental devastation…
It's not long before Olivia's icy cool exterior is shattered by the intelligent and wickedly hot sheikh, and business is surpassed by sweet, stolen pleasures. But outside the bedroom, there's reality to be faced. Soon Khaled must return to his obligations – and his betrothed – in Saqat.
Caught between duty and ambition, can an oil tycoon and a sexy sheikh find room for love…or will this business deal spell disaster for them both?

What a sweet, romantic love story!
Olivia McGinnis wanted to take over as CEO of MCI Oil after her father retired. To gain the board's approval, she had to secure the oil contract with Sheikh Khaled of Saqat. On the other hand, Khaled knew his people would benefit greatly from the oil exploration, but he was concerned with the environmental impact in the case of an accident, like an oil spill, for example. At the same time, attraction sparked between them, but what can they have between them except for a one-night stand? Because Olivia couldn't give up her ambition and Khaled could only marry a woman from his own country...
The pacing of the story was slow and unhurried, and the story reads like a gentle lullaby, soothing and fulfilling the promise of an HEA. Though how it would all work out was a tad predictable for me, I still enjoyed the journey due to the author's engaging writing and interesting characters. Khaled especially was memorable, because he was a hunk and a sheikh, but most of all, because he was kind. A rare selfless man who thinks of others before himself. He's also the perfect romantic hero that every woman dreams of. How Olivia and Khaled's HEA came about was just fabulous! So romantic and sigh-worthy.
I also have to commend the author for her ability to engage the reader's emotions on every step of the journey, but most especially at the ending, which she wrote with compassion and the promise of Saqat's future. All in all, a story worth reading!
