Yes, I am dating myself with that reference.

As I was reading GitBT, I found myself changing the meaning of scenes in order to entertain myself. Entire passages of dialogue and bland scenes were spiced up in my head as I made the Sheikh more of a jackass and the woman less intriguing than she was supposed to be.

Here's the book as I saw it :

The book states - Amir had his pick of gorgeous women on six contents. He chose his own bed partners.

Translation - Amir knew

I do really love Annie West, especially her Sheikh romances. This was a great read with a truly feisty heroine and the chemistry between them just sizzled. My only regret is that the end was a little too easily resolved. The hero did some very cruel and unforgivable things to the heroine. Though he wasn't verbally abusive or demeaning to her like other alpha heros, his actions were just as bad.

It just felt like they needed more time to repair the relationship (with a little more groveling) for

GIRL IN A BEDOUIN TENT by Annie West is a Harlequin Mills & Boon Modern(UK), Presents(NA) and Sexy(Aust/NZ) release.

Prince Amir, Sheikh of Tarakhar, prided himself on his developed and law-abiding desert Kingdom. Imagine his surprise when he is presented with a sex-slave who was kidnapped from his kingdom by the neighbouring bandit chief. He is livid with anger. He saves Australian volunteer teacher Cassandra Denison, after a week of Cassie pretending to be his mistress at the bandit camp.

Cassie is an Australian actress, but she wants something more than that. So when she sees an advertisement for English teachers wanted in Tarakhar, a small but wealthy Arabic country, she applies for the position, and is accepted. Unfortunately, while travelling to the remote town where she will be teaching, the bus breaks down. All the other passengers live nearby and leave on foot, leaving her alone with the driver when bandits attack and kidnap her. She is terrified! So when she is given as a ...more
My 100th HP of the year, completing my HP challenge.

I like this one much better than I expected. I usually have a hard time with the made up Middle Eastern countries and their European seeming sheikhs. I had a couple of flashes here of the hero not seeming realistically Middle Eastern but I just tried to ignore it and enjoy the story.

This story shone in character development. The heroine was realistic in her fear when she was abducted and the hero was wonderful in his gentlemanly reactions to t

So it's a sheik book. If you aren't already a sheik-book-reader, just be prepared. To enjoy this, you'll have to put aside all sorts of doubts and disbelief and surrender to the fantasy. If you can do that, you'll find great writing, a sweet love story, and a surprisingly strong, realistic heroine. A fabulous read by Annie West, one of my favorite category writers.

Overall rating - 3.5 stars

The hero acted honorably after being "gifted" the heroine by a local adversary; however, I had a problem with the hero's (view spoiler).

The thing I liked most about this book was the "black moment". Not that it's a unique moment, but the author wrote some very compelling emotions on both parts, and I appreciate that. Sometimes the black moments in categories are kind of weak, but I thought this one had some nice emotional intensity.

This was a pretty good way to spend an evening if you like Sheikh books or books with a kidnapped heroine. I'm a little disappointed we didn't get to see what the penance was for the guy who kidnapped Cassie. That was totally brushed under the rug.

A great read! Amir was charming and sophisticated, a true Sheikh. Cassie was an actress, a lonely girl with a tortured past. I really felt I could relate to her. And the ending was so full of emotion and so heartwarming!

This was my first Annie West and what a way to start with this gorgeous bite of a read. Desert heat, a Shiekh to die for and a tempting heroine make this a combustable read.

Cassandra doesn't have any fond memories regarding most men. And they escalate when after her tour bus breaks down within the borders of Trakhar, and is kidnapped by the neighboring country. After she is taken she gets scrubbed down and changed into a skimpy outfit and is presented to the Sheikh of Trakhar, Amir...
When he hears the jingle of bells coming from behind him he is prepared for the attack and manages not to hurt her and only manages to only get a nick. At first he thought it was an

Admittedly I don't really go in for Sheikh stories, but thought I'd try one.
I didn't really buy the heroine in this story. I liked the hero though. I thought the author's creative middle Eastern country name and ruling family were creative.
I think the author could have condensed the first half of the book when the heroine was stuck in the tent into a chapter, because after they arrived back at Amir's palace the story got better. I find usually the first half of the book is really rocking and ro

The first Hero I fell in love with Amir from the beginning., Such a gentleman.
Great chemistry between the H and h .. I read this book under 5hrs! Great read!! Love it
lashawn kelly
Great story

I loved the story.. it started off to the point but after kind of slow. Overall good story.. Great ending
couldn't keep me interested... and after the first half I skimmed over to the ending...
i really like, for the most part, a well-written sheikh-themed book--don't shoot me, i know it's fiction and escapism, but there you are! the heroine is terribly naive, considering her past life and occupation now as an actress, and the hero is rather chauvinistic, which seems to be a given for these sheikh-types, but i still enjoyed it.

This is my first Annie West book and I must say I really enjoyed it. I was a bit shocked to discover that the heroine was chained to the bed (not by the hero, of course) but still... The story progresses nicely, the chemistry between them is great and the hero finally comes to his senses. A quick and very enjoyable read.

I love Annie West's sizzling hot Sheikh stories, and this one was no exception. Such a swoonworthy hero and a strong yet vulnerable heroine with a foreign twist. I was rooting for them throughout the novel and didn't want their story to end.
