I was mostly bored with this one. Though I enjoyed the other books of the series, these two s ...more
God damn I wish I knew why they appeal to me so much, but they just do. The desert locations, dominant, passionate and aggressive men are all so completely different from my sad little life in Wagga Wagga.
I think there must be some romantic, time warp thingy that I fall into whenever I start a Sheik book – because realistically most of the stories are about arrogant, head strong men that think love is something a woman feels to pass the time and all they ...more
