by Andie Brock, author of The Sheikh’s Wedding Contract
I was thrilled to be offered the chance to write the fourth book in the Society Weddings miniseries! Not only did it mean working closely with the three other fabulous authors, Jennifer Hayward, Michelle Smart and Tara Pammi, (and believe me, we had so much fun!), but I had my own super-sexy-sheikh to play with, the utterly gorgeous Zayed Al Afzal.
Along with his best friends, Rocco Mondelli, Christian Markos and Stefan Bianco, Zayed believes that life is for living and the faster the better! Now hugely successful billionaire businessmen, and international heartbreakers to boot, the bond between these four alpha males is as strong as ever. They think they’ve got life sussed.
But fate, and four fabulously feisty young women, are just about to prove them wrong!
My story, The Sheikh’s Wedding Contract, starts when Zayed has to return to his country to become the Sheikh of Gazbiyaa. This desert kingdom is on the brink of war with its neighbour, Harith, a situation Zayed knows he has to rectify ASAP. But first he has to figure out just why the beautiful Nadia is splayed across his bed and determined to tempt him with her considerable charms!
Nadia was a complete delight to write, I love her to bits. So brave and principled she is prepared to sacrifice her freedom, even her life, for the sake of her country. But she is vulnerable too, and as it turns out it isn’t her life at risk the night she creeps into Sheikh Zayed’s bed—it’s her heart.
Zayed, meanwhile, is battling to cling on to the rigid control he is so famous for, something Nadia is testing to its limits—and beyond! She drives him crazy, but the explosive attraction between them will not be ignored!
I loved writing the lavish wedding scene for this story and it set me thinking; which real life society wedding would I have killed to have an invite for? Charles and Diana? Jackie and JFK? Kim and Kanye?!
How about you? Which society wedding would have seen you dashing for a front row seat?!
Newly crowned Sheikh Zayed Al Afzal needs to earn his people’s allegiance. And that means the one thing this wicked playboy has always avoided—marriage! His viziers may have a bevy of beautiful options for him, but when Zayed meets exquisite Nadia Amani he makes a choice that’s all his own.
Now, with the wedding contract signed and sealed, Zayed learns the shocking truth—Nadia is his enemy’s daughter! But in the dark desert nights Zayed’s desire for his princess intensifies and anger gives way to a sensual hunger that begs to be satisfied…
The world’s sexiest billionaires finally say “I do!”
