I'm a bit of a romantic, though I do love some excitement in my stories. Here are a couple of ideas. PM me if any creates interest, or if any might could be tweaked to best suit you. I'll add more as they come to me.
Hajari, desert princess, has been taken into custody by a "civilized" man who wishes to force her father to cooperate with him in a business venture. Unlike many of the ladies of the city, Hajari is strong and stubborn while still being regal. Her beauty is becoming more and more alluring to her captor who finds that he is having trouble controlling himself around her.
Lady Danica Fetterin is the widow of a nobleman who rode off to war and got himself killed. While still in mourning for the loss of her husband, a stranger rides up, with his entire army behind him, intending to claim the Fetterin land for his own. The lady is not so willing to give over control to this barbaric man who offends her sensibilities, but her people are beginning to laud him as their savior. And he is deciding that maybe he wants this hard-headed woman for his own.
