In particular, they’re spotlighting these four releases…Medalist, Back When You Called Us Devils, The Springtime Of My Life Began With You, and With The Sheikh in His Harem. Look for them later this spring on participating digital vendors including Bookwalker, comiXology, Google Play, Kindle, Nook and izneo.

But when a chance encounter with a stranger leads her to push away his offer of riches, she wonders if she’s gone crazy…and starts to believe she really has when he reveals that he’s a Sheikh, and proposes to her!

Mortified, she tries everything to get away…but he persists, and insists he’s serious! How will she deal with such an interruption to her previously quiet life?
