I enjoy helping my friends and fellow authors whenever I have the chance because I believe in the authors, or just because I enjoy their work. But this week I am joining others to get word out for a friend who cannot promote her new February release due to the upset in Egypt.

If you don't know- Olivia is a multi-talented woman. A doctor, singer, and writer is just a few of her talents among many.
You see Olivia Gates has a February 1 release by Harlequin Desire called To Tempt a Sheikh. Her friends and fellow authors would like to get out the word about her book since Olivia cannot.
Please help us by posting the information below on your blog, your Facebook page or by tweeting a link to Olivia’s home page. Just copy and paste the text below and this cover by right clicking your mouse. Let’s support an author who cannot access the internet to promote her book.

To Tempt a Sheikh by Olivia Gates

He rescued hostage Talia Burke from his royal family’s rival tribe and swept her into his strong embrace. But Prince Harres Aal Shalaan soon discovered there was more to the brave beauty than he knew. Talia held information vital to protecting his beloved kingdom…and she had every reason not to trust him.

Marooned together at a desert oasis, Talia couldn’t resist Harres. Yet even as his sizzling seduction entranced her, his loyalty to his family and country would always make them enemies. Falling for the sheikh would be her heart’s greatest mistake…but she feared it was already too late….
In stores February 1!
Available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Books A Million and bookstores everywhere. Also available at eharlequin both in print and as an ebook.

Thank you!
