A rising star in the modeling and acting fields, Mallory Robbins, is captivated by Drew Stevens, the most beautiful man she has ever seen after he helps her out of an embarrassing entanglement with a drunken, would-be suitor, in the meat market singles bar, Jojos. Her attraction for Drew is so great that she uncharacteristically spends that night joyously and blissfully making love with her newfound dreamlover—only to be later kidnapped, along with Drew and whisked to some unknown location.
The next morning, Mallory awakes having no memory of her whereabouts or the events leading to her being there. Enduring a severe headache, she becomes absolutely terrified when she catches a glimpse of herself in a dresser mirror wearing the authentic coverings, including a veil, of a devout Muslim woman.
Things become even more confusing when a young woman, also dressed in traditional Arab garments, visits Mallory and informs her that she has been brought there to become Saudi Prince Ali’s fourth wife. WHAT IS GOING ON?
Thus begins a bizarre and sensuous odyssey, in which Mallory is scheduled to marry a Saudi Prince and Drew is in danger of being beheaded for soiling the Prince’s fiancé
Perhaps she could finally finish driving home. Not even bothering to re-button her blouse, she started her car and pulled onto the street.
Shit! He had even offered to give her his telephone number but she told him no. How stupid. The best sex she had ever had. Sex she would have gladly paid for and she sent him away. Mallory knew why, too. She wanted him, wanted to screw him. She ached for his cock buried deep inside her. She wanted to fuck him then, but refused to let herself screw a total stranger and, if she took his number, she would have called him. In fifteen minutes, they would have been in bed.

It was almost 10:00 p.m. when Mallory pulled into her garage. She hadn’t arrived a minute too soon. On edge, she couldn’t get her marvelously lewd episode out of her mind. After changing into a crimson nightgown and robe, she thought for a second about fixing something to eat, but opted to pour a glass of wine instead. Maybe it would help dull the yearning she still felt.
Lounging on the couch, she flipped on the TV. Usually she watched the news, but she was considering something she had never done and wasn’t quite sure how to go about it—finding a naughty pay-per-view movie. She’d decided to try it when the doorbell rang.
At the door, through the peephole, she saw Drew. Mallory was exuberant. Similar to Pavlov’s dog, Mallory’s pussy became ravenous. She quickly undid the lock and the deadbolts, then opened the door. Had he come to rescue the damsel in desire?
He flashed his dreamy smile. “I just wanted to make sure you got—”
Mallory laid a giant hot kiss upon his smiling lips.
Mallory Robbins is a super star, an up and coming movie star, and one of L.A.’s most beautiful women. She heads to JoJo’s Bar and Grill to meet her friend, Paige. After sharing a few drinks, Paige and her main squeeze, leave. Mallory stays and finish her drink only to have a rude, drunken man try to push his attentions on her. Enter Drew Khalid Stevens, a sexy man, who sends wonderful heated sensations all over her body. Drew is smitten by her long legs and shapely body. They leave together where he delights her most deliciously, and then afterwards they unite again for an encore of love. Just when she is about to learn why he carries a gun, and a card that says Steven Investigations, a chemical treated rag is slapped over her mouth. Mallory awakes to see she is dressed like an Arab woman and has a mind-blowing headache. She learns she has been kidnapped and personally selected to be the fourth wife of Prince Ali, a Saudi Prince. As a U.S. citizen, she demands to be returned to America. Unfortunately, no one escapes. To make matters worse, Drew is in a locked room, waiting execution for soiling Mallory, the fiancé of Ali. Since Ali is royally upset, Drew must pay for his actions.
I was blown away with Legs. From the moment Drew and Mallory connect in the bar, to the hair-raising kidnapping, I was hypnotized with the charisma of the storyline and the characters. Dee Dawning knows how to create an action-packed story that explodes. With intrigue, sensual passion, and a bit of mystery, all blended together, not to mention, just the right spots to include some witty little remarks, he crafts a most splendid read. Mallory and Drew are absolutely captivating together. The in-depth secondary characters add great appeal to the movement of the story. I really hope he plans a sequel or a series. Legs is definitely a recommended read in my book.

Drew Khalid Stevens is a relative of Prince Ali, a Saudi prince. He has been hired to kidnap the lovely Mallory, and instead he falls in love with her.
Mallory is a gorgeous blonde model who has a pair of legs that are fabulous. So exquisite is she, that a Saudi price, Prince Ali, wants her to be his fourth wife. She has no choice in the matter.
This is an intriguing romantic story, full of love, suspense, fabulous sex, and cultural differences.
I anticipated this book a month before it came out because Dee Dawning did an excellent job promoting it, and it was in fact as good as it was made out to be. I loved it. It was steamy and sexy, but the intrigue was fabulous. Dee painted such mystery, mixed it with love and sex, and came out with a colorful portrait of life. My only disappointment that the ‘girl’ didn’t get the ‘guy’ I’d hoped she’d get. If you like romance mixed with mystery, you’ll love this story. It is a must read!
Dee Dawning writes because he is compelled to. Too many ideas are floating in his head and he has to transfer them to paper. In the two years he has been writing seriously, he has written three published novels and three published short stories, with a half dozen in the works. When it comes to erotica, he only writes straight sex, between two and sometime three partners. He has written f/f, but stays away from deviant sex. To him, sex is a celebration of life and he treats it as such.
