Jacob Yoder is a young Amish man on "rumspringa" (running around time, an Amish tradition) in New York City. There he runs, quite literally, into Fahd ibn Azar, son of a powerful Saudi Sheikh.

Fahd is smitten with Jacob, and brings the all-too-trusting Amish man to his penthouse hotel suite, where he introduces a confused but willing Jacob to the pleasures of the flesh. Jac

Fahd ibn Azar, son of a powerful Saudi Sheikh, runs into Jacob Yoder, a young Amish man on "rumspringa" outside the United Nations and the two men are immediately attracted to each other despite their both coming from cultures that anathemize homosexuality. While Fahd's initial intentions are strictly carnal, Jacob is amazed by the most satisfying of all his new experiences, and is quickly overwhelmed by the powerful, wealthy, and worldly young man. But when Fahd's brother launches a plot to hav ...more

Hands up: this story by Kiernan Kelly was born by a specific request I did in a chat almost two years ago. Sheikhs romances are my kink, dating back when I was still reading Harlequin Presents, and I so wanted to read a story with a young and handsome sheikh in it; the obvious counterpart in this type of romance is the innocent virgin, but giving the modern time, where you can find a completely innocent boy to fit the dress? Of course in an Amish community! And so here was the very high level pl ...more

Cornfed by Kiernan Kelly gives the reader the ultimate in the very popular opposites-attract theme: an Amish boy who meets a playboy sheikh. What reader could resist that? The plot is standard but serviceable. Where the story shines is in the extensive portrayal of the Amish, from their tight-knit community rituals such as barn raising and prayer meetings held in each other’s houses on down to tiny details such as their hook-and-eye homespun clothing and their signature dessert, shoofly pie.

It reminded me of that movie, Witness, with Harrison Ford. The developing relationship between the two men was nicely handled, but the writing was rather clumsy at times, with way too many mentions of each character's name and not enough use of male pronouns. I don't know whether this is the fault of the author or the editor. Sometimes it's unavoidable to use a character's name more than once in a sentence, particularly when two or more characters in a scene are the same gender, but I think the ...more

I have read books about Amish and Sheikh stories in the past, and both kinds bored me to tears.
I wasn't very keen to read this story really, but, I was also very intrigued to find out of how this author pulled off a story like this.

Well, some reviewers said it was cute, cheesy,sweet etc.
For me, it was just great.
The sex scenes were steamy as I like them, the plot kept me entertain,both characters were lovely, specially Jacob, has a happy ending.
Overall, I had a great time reading it.

I admit I got caught up in the scene after the MCs were reunited but overall I don't think the love between the two MCs was real. They met then they are having sex and more important one of the MCs didn't know what hell gay meant. It seem they were thinking with their little head more than what is in their heart. I just didn't like this book and would not be recommend this book to anyone.

Very cute romance that almost veered into WITNESS territory, but didn't quite. Only Kiernan could have pulled off a sheik and an Amish boy in love. She did it with such skill I was back in the Pennsylvania hills learning top drive a semi while avoiding Dutch buggies.

Very sweet romance between a young Amish man and the son of an oil Sheikh. The story had romance, drama and international intrigue. Loved it!

3.5 Pretty woman meets Witness, a bit unrealistic, but throughly funny and charming makes this story a guilty pleasure.

It was sweet and straightforward, but didn't really keep me interested.

A cheesy kind of story but cute enough to keep one "awe" over the couple.
