Swept Away, featuring the marvellous 'Desert Barbarian'

Swept Away: pub. September 2009

How cool is this? While helping to answer a reader's query about a Lamb novel below, I discovered that a new 3-story edition of classic M&B tales from the 60s, 70s and 80s has been published recently, featuring one of Charlotte Lamb's novels: 'Desert Barbarian'.

In 'Desert Barbarian', the half-Arab hero snatches up the astonished heroine and rides off with her into the desert like something out of the Arabian Nights, after hearing her complain that she is bored of the usual tourist sights. Later, she discovers that the mesmeric 'Khalid' is really wealthy businessman Stonor Grey, and realises she has been made a fool of ...

You can buy SWEPT AWAY on Amazon.uk. I couldn't track down this title on the Mills and Boon site proper, so if anyone knows the link, please let me know.

Here's the title publicity:

This title features love, lust and desire in three classic tales of passion from the 60s, 70s and 80s. 'He moved his lips along her throat with feverish intensity, then returned to her mouth, parting her lips, consuming her in the flame of his own passion.' Lines like these sent hearts fluttering and pulses racing by the light of the bedside lamp as eager eyes devoured the latest Mills & Boon novels throughout the sixties, seventies and eighties.

Today, Mills & Boon novels are more popular than ever before, as enthrallingly passionate as they always have been with a sensual style to suit the sophistication of the 21st century...but there is still a place for the nostalgic romance of yesteryear.

In "Swept Away", three of the best-selling novels from three of the most popular authors, one each from the sixties, seventies and eighties, are brought together in one breathtaking volume to take you back in time to a more innocent world. Even then, however, the path of true love never ran smoothly...

The books in this edition are "Lucifer's Angel" by Violet Winspear, "Desert Barbarian" by Charlotte Lamb, and "Summer Fire" by Sally Wentworth.



  1. Hi Jane! My name is Janet. Just came across this blog when searching for reviews to get ideas about what book to pick up to read next. Such a sweet blog for you to run! I wanted to let you know how much I love your mother's books. :) I've been reading Harlequin Presents books for years (and branching off into other lines) and I still just love the style Charlotte Lamb wrote in. Such intensity! Very memorable stories! She's living on in her work, a much loved fav author of mine.

  2. Many thanks, Janet. I really appreciate you dropping by to let me know that.

    Have a great (and romantic) Christmas!
