There were some beautiful elements to the story, especially the love between the couple, which was palpable. No other HP author writes love from a hero's POV the way Michelle Reid does. It was nice to see a man unafraid to express his love publicly, and refreshing that his father accepted heroine (the antidote to Gold Ring of Betrayal). I love how Hassan, despite his jealousy, never questions Leona's fidelity. There were some nice angsty moments where Hassan says something horrible and then felt ...more

I loved this book! I know it's kinda old skool, but I loved it anyway. The tragedy of Leona and Hassan's love! Sob!!

Leona can't have children. Hassan must have an heir and he's being pressured to do something about it. But Hassan wants Leona, and Leona wants Hassan to divorce her and put his country first. They emote all over the page. I was glued. GLUED.

4 1/2 Stars! ~ Leona’s scared witless when she and her father’s business partner, Ethan are abducted.

Turns out I've already read this before! XD .. Back in 2011. No wonder the plot sounded so familiar. T__T

Arap şeyhleriyle ilgili okuduğum ilk hikayeydi bu ama çok beğendim... Vay be şeyhler böyle mi oluyormuş dedim yani yalan değil.. Eğer böylelerse tutmayın beni Katar'a kuzenimin yanına taşınacağım acilen :D Neyse.. öhömm.. Bu kitap biz de serinin ilk kitabı olarak mı çıktı acaba yoksa evie ve raschidin hikayesi de çıktı mı çıktıysa adı ne onu da okumalıyım.. Rafiq'in hikayesini de bekliyorum çok sevdim onu da :)

Good read and onto the next in this series
Hassan and Leona argued too much throughout the book for me to find it romantic. Considering the problem they were facing, I did not understand Leona's hesitation in using modern science to help her and Hassan conceive. She exacerbated an already emotionally and politically charged dilemma by resisting Hassan's efforts to find a solution. (view spoiler) ...more

I loved this one.. Would have loved it more if the story didn't keep on dragging on and on.. All in all it was a great read. The ending had me in tears.

Leona thinks her marriage to Sheikh Hassan is storybook perfect until she discovers that she may not be able to conceive and her husband's people are calling for him to take a second wife to produce an heir.
Hassan only cares about Leona—not her reproduction abilities—so when she leaves him, he gives her some time on her own before he goes to re
I am Gamz
A good story about a couple's struggle with infertility. As Sheikh of his kingdom, Hassan went against his people's wishes by marrying Leona, a British red head. Complicating matters, Leona learns that due to problems with her ovaries she may never be able to conceive.

This puts a strain on the marriage and causes Leona to leave her husband. At the beginning of the book, they have been separated for a year. Hassan realizes that he has to take matters into his own hands if their relationship is t

When A Man Loves A Woman..... d:)

What we have here is a couple who loves each other, but are determined to do the right thing. The h is married to a prince and having trouble conceiving, so she wants to let the H go so he can remarry and have heirs. The H is being pressured for heirs, but wants no other woman and doesn't care about heirs. The book offers the H's POV and you get a front row seat into his feelings and how he plots to move heaven and earth to keep the woman he loves. This one is a

Convinta che qualcuno stia cercando di rapirla, Leona fa per urlare, quando riconosce il marito, lo sceicco Hassan ben Khalifa Al-Quadin, da cui è separata da più di un anno.
Nonostante l'amore reciproco, infatti, i doveri politici e la necessità di avere un erede li hanno obbligati a lasciarsi.
E ora cosa vorrà da lei? La tensione è alta, ma tutto comincia a chiarirsi durante il volo che li porterà a Port Said.
Qui, però, alcune persone cercano di separarli a qualsiasi costo.

nice enough but i cud not help feeling leona was dramatizing the situation. i also wish der had been some misunderstanding or smthg 4 their separation or dat hassan cud have been more of an ass. but der was nthg unpleasant abt him. he was huge, besotted n so damn nice, caring only n foremost abt leona. well, this did not work 4 an additional amount of angst !

This book is one of my favorites by MR. I loved Hassan! Ahhh! His and Leona's chemistry was beautiful to read and at the same time, I loved the topic they had to deal with in their story. Infertility is hard enough for anyone but was on another level to deal when you have the responsibility to provide an heir for your kingdom. I liked how everything worked out in the end.
MR created a great series of HPs with strong characters with equally strong storylines. The interconnecting stories in this series have been very satisfying. Kleypas has been doing this with great success over the years and it is fantasic to see MR do the same

Michelle Reid is a favorite author when I want a quick read. I did not enjoy the characters or storyline of this book. But, I encourage readers to try her other books which are great reads.

Another great one! Very well-written, with lots of intrigue and behind-the-scenes political drama. The end was a bit too melodramatic, but otherwise I really liked this one.

Hi, my name is Michelle Reid and I’ve been writing for Harlequin Mills & Boon for the last twenty years, and the crazy part about it is that I only realised it had been twenty years while updating this page!

So, hang on for a minute while I take this huge milestone in....

Twenty years with almost forty books published or in the pipeline ... I know it isn’t a great average when compared with some
