"Don't look for me. I'll come back when I'm ready." Pandora Madchen wrote those words when she ran off six years ago. In that time she's become a sensation with the rock group Nemesis, toured the world, and grown up. Now Pandora is ready to return to the desert state of Sedikhan and the man she loved too soon and too much.

Sheik Philip El Kabbar is a businessman whose power and influence extends throughout the world - but for six long years he's been unable to find the woman he loves. Now she's come back on her own terms and will take the kind of erotic gamble that Philip always wins. Only this time he isn't sure that in winning they won't both lose what matters most. Or that in loving her, he won't be hurting them both...

So predictable! I would have enjoyed it when I was 12.

Stupid book. Hate it. This is romance novel that reminds me of a porn movie. It has a terrible plot, terrible characters and terrible action. Why anyone would read this on purpose I don't know. I thought I'd read Johansen before, but maybe not.
