#BookReview – “Her Desert Protector” by Marie Tuhart


Journalist Zoey Lace is determined her exposé on the progressive country of Bashir will be her strongest travel piece yet. Upon her arrival, she finds not all is peaceful in this beautiful land. When Prince Khalid Al-Hakim insists her life is in danger and he must protect her, can she trust the prince’s reasons or is there some hidden agenda?

Khalid Al-Hakim is duty bound to protect his beloved country and his family, all now at risk, threatened by opium dealers. A beautiful American journalist photographs the wrong thing and it’s up to Khalid to save his homeland and keep Zoey safe. When she is kidnapped, all his plans disperse like arid desert sand in a storm. To save the woman he loves, he must now face his deepest fears.

Together, will they conquer obstacles to the country and themselves or be torn apart by the tides of evil?


In the fourth Desert Destiny series book, Zoey Lacey travels to the small Middle-Eastern country of Bashir to write about the upcoming 300th year celebration of the country’s founding. While in the market, taking pictures, she accidentally draws the attention of a group of young men, who chase after her. Luckily for her, she runs right into the hottest man she’d ever seen—the country’s head of security.
Khalid al-Hakim is also a prince, the youngest of four brothers, and he puts Zoey under his protection whether she likes it or not. Though he’s worried about her and a series of attacks that seems focused on her, he also has to see to the protection of his people and his family from a villain he can’t find.
Zoey and Khalid were wonderful. Her strength and his need to shelter her often clashed, but they worked through it and learned how to work together.
Khalid’s three older brothers and their women were interesting, but I couldn’t really connect with them. I haven’t read the previous books in the series, so sometimes I was confused, but each of those couples had a brief back-story. I would’ve liked to know more.
I enjoyed the plot and the H/h, but the story could use a light edit to clear up a few typos and filter words. Overall, it’s a good story and I’m happy I read it.
