Polly didn't expect to be happy

Family loyalty and the knowledge that her love for Chris would never be returned led Polly to accept marriage to Prince Raschid, heir to a desert kingdom.

The problems she thought she'd face were practical ones--such as how she'd adjust to life in a very different culture.

What a shock it was to discover that the handsome autocratic man she'd m

I liked this story very much. I am glad to see a H that wasn't mean. Yes, he may have his moments of anger but most of the time he is logical. Comparatively I feel sometimes the heroine actions and respond are a bit childish. They both entered this marriage of convenience for their own reason but the hero did approach it with much more tolerance and sense while I can't help to feel the heroine is less considerate. She made her decision to marry into a loveless marriage and the hero did ensure sh ...more

Geez ...this is one unpalatable book. There really isn't anything redeeming about either the Hero or the heroine.

He is a brutal nasty character, making it clear that she is only there for his physical needs. She falls head over heels for someone that constantly treats her like trash.

The parents force her to marry him to save them from a horrible financial situation...and she decides it's okay to sell herself because the man she really loves only sees her as a friend.

She is immature and spouts

Polly didn't expect to be happy

Family loyalty and the knowledge that her love for Chris would never be returned led Polly to accept marriage to Prince Raschid, heir to a desert kingdom.

The problems she thought she'd face were practical ones--such as how she'd adjust to life in a very different culture.

What a shock it was to discover that the handsome autocratic man she'd married was a complex and wonderful companion--and that her emotions were certainly involved!

hilarious one ! i liked it so much! i felt rashid was besotted right from the start; at 1st ofc wid lust, then wid love. rashid's misadventure wid his 1st wife was treated lightly. i mean he was not a dark hero. he was compassionate, kind n loving. i did not feel he used her as a mistress in his bed. if they did not communicate enough, it was bcoz polly avoided him. on their very 1st meeting, she knew what 2 expect from him n the marriage bcoz he was very honest n direct wid her. she was very qu ...more

Bien esta reseña será un poquito más corta que las otras a menos que se me vayan los dedos y bueno, ya saben. Llegué a esta novela cuando leí la adaptación de ella con dos personajes de Harry Potter, si lo sé, es algo extraño, pero bueno, siempre coloco como llegué a los libros. Lo busqué y cuando lo encontré me di cuenta que era muy barato porque era parte de una colección de novelas del mismo tipo que sacan colección como Bianca o Jasmín, estoy segura que más de alguna habrá llegado a ellas má ...more

Novel ini menceritakan pangeran arab Raschid (seorang duda) yg dijodohin sama polly 19 tahun (cewek inggris) (kalian entar bisa baca kenapa mereka dijodohin,panjang soalnya kalo mau di tulis ^^).

Novelnya bagus, cuma gue pusing bacanya di ebook, inggrisnya kacau banget, point2nya dan alurnya masih bisa di mengerti, Pangeran arab Raschid keturunan org prancis dari neneknya dan kakeknya arab, ortunya arab perawakannya matanya biru, rambut item, tinggi, macho, cool dan pastinya kaya raya, posesif.

Maybe I just wasn't in the mood, but this one didn't grab me even though it had some elements I normally enjoy (heroine illness, can't-have babies-angst that gets resolved). Though on the other hand I tend to dislike Arabian romances, but make exceptions for my favorite authors like LG. The Arabian context wasn't too bad in this one but it puts a damper on the HEA for me knowing that for the rest of her life she's going to have to go out in public wearing a burka. Arabian setting aside, I think ...more

Awful, Hero was not much of one old school HP not fond of them at times.

Liked this, but it could've been more exciting.

Obviously by the end the hero admits his love (like most Harlequins)

But he was so cold until then

and I wanted more groveling

This one is Lynne Graham's best -- along with THE CORSICAN GAMBIT by Sandra Marton, it is the best Harlequin Presents I have ever read!
