Crowned for His Desert Twins is a sizzling, passionate romance based on a huge misunderstanding on Khalil’s part, a decision that will wreak havoc on emotions for both him and India from the beginning of their story until the final page.  To be fair to Khalil, I expect a degree of arrogance from any hero in the Harlequin Presents line… I’m more surprised when that isn’t a personality trait of any hero.  Yes, there is arrogance in this man, mainly from his position in life, but there is also a deeper pain, a betrayal that has changed his life in a way that has ensured that he will never, ever easily trust in love again.  His attraction to India from across the crowded room was obvious – but what India saw as intense attraction, for a good portion of their story Khalil saw it quite differently – and was unbearably cruel in his words and attitude.

India has known heartache and is trying to do the best she can for her brother without letting him know just how dire their financial situation is after their parents’ deaths.  She won’t pull him from college, from his desire to enter the medical profession… but she has no idea how she’ll be able to afford the tuition.  Her job, while lucrative and well paying is the only way she can afford their bills.  And one encounter, one night is about to change everything India had planned for her own future, let alone her brother’s.  Innocent lives depend on her actions now, and while she wouldn’t consider herself brave to face Khalil after his tirade, she is nonetheless determined to do the right thing – no matter what it may cost her.

I enjoyed Crowned for His Desert Twins very much.  India is such a strong woman, even though I doubt that she sees herself that way.  Khalil is a man who has been betrayed in the worst way, and although that doesn’t excuse his actions it does explain them… and perhaps shows some weakness in his armor that surrounds his heart.  I liked them both and was glued to the pages watching their romance unfold.  By the ending of their love story, I had no doubts that this was a couple that could face anything that life could toss their way for they’ve already fought a battle for each other… and won.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.
