In the morning she pleads with him to leave her alone and never try to contact her again. But he soon learns he cannot for she has been hiding his child from him. Now he has to prove to her he wants to cla ...more
Those who know me know that I love a good sheikh book and that I think that OG is one of the best in writing about them, but I am sorry to say this one just didn't hit the mark.

It was just a bit too busy, it was well over the top with all the drama and it just didn't seem like a sheikh book. A lot of the drama wasn't fully explained especially the bit about Lujayn's marriage to another guy. I am so sick and tired of hearing about his mother, the wicked and much disliked exiled queen that I think

This story is so full of twists, turns and fabulous characters I could hardly put it down!
This is the first book I've read where I actually was on the hero's side from the very beginning, despite what appearances were showing.
The intense, searing emotions in this story had my heart rate doubling.It was heartbreaking reading about Jalal's life being played out almost behind his back by 2 women most important to him. Neverthelesss, there it was and it was crushing!
The intensity and tenderness imbu
For the second book in the Desert Knights series, there are secrets to discover and devious manipulations that must be overcome before genuine happiness can come into the lives of its spirited couple. Olivia Gates once again delivers when creating a sheikh hero who conveys alpha tendencies yet can be brought to his knees by one female.

Since he believes the only woman that he has ever loved is gone from his life forever, Prince Jalal Aal Shalaan wants to be the next king of Azmahar as it will gi
Too much over the top & drama and I had a hard time following what was going on. I also felt that the heroine marriage wasn't explained, did she love her husband?Was it a real marriage? Heroine had been involved with the hero for four years, but well they never cleared the air, she was a model and her mom a servant of the hero's evil mother. She thought she was his dirty secret and felt degraded every time she was with him, he kept her a secret because of his mother, so to get out she marrie ...more
The Sheikh's Claim has it all. Fantastic, emotional writing like no other, matched hero and heroine who strike a lightning storm off each other from start to finish, very good reasons and rationalizations for the misunderstandings and why it wouldn't have worked in the past between them, and an actual and highly interesting plot in the background set among a very rich setting and secondary characters. All in all, another masterpiece that Olivia Gates manages to compose in the boundaries of what ...more
Olivia Gates is sooo talented. I love how she builds the relationships in her books. You feel what the characters feel and root for both. You'll want to read all of her books after reading one.

Wow this book had drama on overdrive. I felt myself wanting to cry at the end. Some people are just to evil to live. Good job to the writer. Will we ever find out who becomes King???
Geraldine Sadiku
Hot passionate romance at its best. Will take you away to a different way of life great for escapism. Highly recommonded

3.5 stars. As always, Gates delivers with the scorching sex scenes, opening with one of hate/revenge sex, but I found this one harder to get into than others I've read.

Part of it was time-jumpy - we start with the hate sex, almost on top of her husband's coffin, two years after Lujayn left Jalal (and IMMEDIATELY married his once-best friend?), which was after Jalal and Lujayn had had a secret "thing" going on for four years - and then the story picks up two years after that (the hate sex which r

Reading an Olivia book is like I'm living it... She set the standards so high and then tops it again ..Thank you An absolutely must read...

That's more like it. Lebih oke daripada volum pertama. Feelingnya dapet dan Jalal emang lebih lovable daripada karakter Haidar, jadi yah secara keseluruhan lebih enak dibaca lag. Haha. Dan dibuku ini seluruh keluarga kerajaan muncul loh.. duh kayaknya saya emang kudu bener2 baca seri2 Olivia Gates sebelumnya supaya bisa kenalan sama ALIYAH, AMJAD, DLL.

Di buku ini Demon Queen juga muncul utk pertama kalinya, ga hanya asal disebut2 konspirasinya ajah tapi beneran dimunculin orangnya. Nyam, nyam. J
This novel was filled to the top with drama. So much so, it was too busy to even concentrate on reading correctly. I was just frustrated with it! I usually like the sheikh/desert prince books but this one made me partially dislike it. I just couldn't get into it and I thought about killing the book half way into it.
Read on Kindle. I haven't cared for Olivia Gates books lately and have thought about not reading them anymore. But I actually liked this one. Can't wait for the next.
i did not like the book dat much. it focused on too many other details. and the society they lived in was too narrow-minded
geez, if you think that your mother-in-law is bad, check out the one in this book!
