Would you like to star in a sheikh romance? Now's your chance!



What's the heroine called?
I'm about to release my latest sheikh romance series, The Sheikh's Beloved, but I'm having problems with the heroine's name. Originally I was going to call her Kate Perry, but I've just been told that the name is very similar to that of a famous singer (I must watch MTV more often!). I therefore need a new name and I thought I'd open it up to my readers.

Would you like the heroine named after you?

She's a sexy British woman with strawberry blonde hair, who gets struck in the Middle East when her flight is delayed due to a volcanic eruption. However, it's not long before she meets an incredibly rich, handsome sheikh who offers her some local hospitality in more ways than one!

The delayed flight was on it's way back from Australia, where she was visiting her mother, who's been married four times (and soon meets a gorgeous ex-lifeguard). Why don't we open up the contest and include these people too so we can have more winners?

Would you like to have the heroine's mother, or her lifeguard boyfriend, named after you?

You don't need to look like any of these people or have lived similar lives to them, you just need to have a great name and enter the contest!

To enter just tell me your name (first and last) and which character you'd like to have named after you: the heroine, the heroine's mother, or the mother's boyfriend. You can tell me using one of the following methods:
The winners will have the character named after them and receive a free ebook copy of The Sheikh's Beloved series!

Please let me know as soon as possible, as I'd like to publish the series this month.

  3. Well, my name is of Persian descent. It's Yasmin (pronounced Yaz-meen), which is Persian for Jasmine. And the meaning is "Desert Rose". My last name is Brazilian. It's Correa, and mean "To be linked or tied to".

    In other words my name Yasmin Correa, means "Linked to a desert rose".

    If you'd like to use it, I'll let you chose which character it would be suited for. I'm not picky. Lol

    Good luck.

  6. My daughters name is Amanda too, and it means "Worthy to be loved". Her middle name is Ruby, which means "A precious jewel".

    In essence her name means "A precious jewel, worthy to be loved". That would be a good First and Last name combination. Amanda Ruby.
