Thats all I have to say. Harry shook his head in disgust. Such affectations. You are calling someone affected? You, who employ two secretaries, one for your Arab dealings and one for your English? You, who are too high and mighty to write your own correspondence? Harry grinned. Thats different. At least I dont commit the sin of WOW! You must forgive him the hackneyed compliment. I suppose you could do better? She felt like a specimen, standing there under his scrutiny. She took the chair next to his and started buttering her own toast with supreme indifference.
She was not a specimen. Nothing floral. Too inconsequential. This is difficult, Diz. To blandish a woman about her physical appearance is so limiting. She blinked. He cocked his head, his eyes traveling lingeringly over her body, and she recognized the potent attraction other women must feel when Harry looked at them this way. As if she were the central point upon which all of his world turned.
Her heartbeat quickened, thrumming in her throat and in her wrists. She shivered. He smiled. His hand retreated. You are a country, a country of unexplored sensation and whim, veiled in dawn, shining, shedding light.

Your palms open, fingers flexed, are minarets, delicate and elegant. And your body… it is the Nile itself— the camber of your back slipping so easily by the narrows of your waist and jettied hips to the lush delta below. She heard the intake of his breath.
My hot, harrowing desert and my cool, verdant Nile, infinitely lovely and unfathomable and sustaining. His gaze fell, shielded by his lashes. An odd, half-mocking smile played about his lips.

Yes, it was kinda cliched, but the heroine was awesome. The love scenes were pretty purple prose though. The story of the Earl of Carr is very troubling to me, and the reader develops a great dislike for him very quickly. Fia, the main female character, seems like a sad little one, really, when you consider that her father is really using her to gain more power and wealth.
