Sheik's Revenge - Loreth Anne White (HRS #1710 - June 2012)

Series: Sahara Kings (Book 2) 

Faith Sinclair never missed a shot -- or a kill. But when the mysterious man she knew only as Santiago was in her sniper's sights, the game changed. It had to. She couldn't kill him in cold blood. Not the father of her unborn baby.

Sheik Omair Al Arif's mind was on one thing: revenge. The undercover king didn't bargain on an intoxicating enemy bent on foiling his plans. And when the two would-be foes joined forces, they discovered nothing was as it seemed -- their identities, their missions and especially the flames burning between them.

Good book.  Even though I haven't read the first book in the series I was able to slide right into the story.  This is the first book I've read where the heroine is a paid assassin.  The concept was very interesting.  Faith was following her orders the first time she saw Omair, and knew she'd be gone the next day.  So she gave in to her desire and had a one-night stand with him.  Eight weeks later she saw him again - through the sights of her rifle.  She found that she couldn't pull the trigger - then someone started shooting at her.  When she ran, she ended up being caught by Omair.  While his captive he told her things that made her doubt the orders she was given.  Meanwhile, Omair was given the chance to get to know the woman he hadn't been able to forget.  The more he learned about her, the more he came to care.  They also came to conclusion that she had been set up.  I loved the way that Omair took care of Faith, even as he held her captive, and how he was so impressed with her capabilities.   Faith was slow to trust Omair, but when she did she was totally convinced.  I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing how they get closer to catching the bad guy.
