Arabia, 1816

For Sheikh Khalid al-Raqam, choosing a bride comes second to the responsibility of ruling his kingdom and protecting its treasures.

His passion is only roused further by her bold and defiant spirit. His

Julitte di culik orang2 Tribald buat jadi upeti ke Prince Khalid dari Arab,entah di kerajaan yang mana deh.

Pokok nya si Prince ini super keren , bikin si Juliette yg bete karena di culik jadi gak teralu takut lagi. Walaupun awal nya menolak dan melawan...mau juga dia dengan (setengah) terpaksa di jadiin “hak milik” sang Pangeran.

Khalid in the other hand, bukan typikal sheik2 yang punya harem dan punya koleksi ratusan perempuan...dia bahkan gak punya sama sekali, nah si Juliette ini lah yang kat

3.7 wonderfully sweet stars

Marguerite Kaye is now my new favourite author. I adore her heroines and her heroes, her cute, fluffy and sweet stories. I'm going to read one more book by her and, if I love that one too, I'm going to go and officially 'become a fan' of her on her GR page. I love this woman.

This story was a short, adorably sweet read (yeah, I gave it a lower rating because it was too short). I loved the heroine right from the beginning, with her feisty innocence, her pride, her prac

Shelves: sheikhs-romance
This was a very short and cute read I would give it a high 3 1/2 but a 4 star is the closest. I do love my sheikh romance so compare to the other sheikh books I read this was like a light version. This story reminds me of a historial read that I have read a couple years back, familiar to how Juliette was captured and given to the sheikh in a rug rolled up. Khalid and Juliette story was very romantic and sweet, the relationship they developed and there mutual interest in history, the book had it' ...more

Fun lighthearted quickly Quick lead

To do with the little more substance it was a quick read hum I want to know a lot of these things are they are they true or false a lot of the plots lot of the statementa so you tell me it was nice to have something different in lighthearted is the first time ever read this kind of a novel. I know this is a romance novel but you seemed to have conversations that will be having that like a lot of diplomatic enundos on things that would cause conflict and conflic

I really tried but I found this story a bit rapey, especially after the main male character decided to forcibly give this girl he'd only moments ago met, a bath. Then I'd had it. I did not enjoy or find any part of this even remotely romantic or moving except toward the emotions of anger and horror.

This was my first book by this author and I am wary of new authors for this same betrayal of my mind so I will not be trying another.

We really need to start expecting more from this genre.

This was a nice book. I can't say anything bad at all, but I can't say something incredibly praising either. It was very short, yet the story did not feel incomplete or in a hurry. The connection between both characters developed quickly, and they fell in love in a heartbeat. I guess that if you want to read something nice, short, exciting and sensual, then this is the right choice.

This was a really cute short love story. I really liked the characters and how something grew between them. I was totally surprised that it worked that well on so few pages. :) For inbetween it was a wonderful read!
