Kristen (Peddler of Smut)
A solid 3 stars.

I enjoyed reading this fun, sweet, and mildly spicy story. The characters were delightful and well developed, the plot intriguing, and the writing descriptive. I did, however, feel the story wasn't long enough to develop or explain why the heroine fell in love with the hero. Sure, she was attracted to him, but why did she suddenly fall in love with him? I also had a "rolls eyes" moment at the end. The climax of the story was Soap Opera-ish, and the sweet, feel-good ending, a bit...more
This was boring to read and the leads had no chemistry.
Another book I read often. The title lives up to the storyline. I love a man who knows what he wants and goes after it. Even though his initial aim was revenge, he never had any plans to cause the h to suffer. It wasn't a use and toss situation. It was also refreshing to see a h who had a boyfriend and an active sex life at the start of the book with someone other than the H. I don't have anything against the usual virginal heroines but in this book that would have been quite unrealistic. Strong...more
I can't believe I even liked reading this novella. Haha.

Blatant arrogance. No sensitivity at all. If only we were given a much more in depth view of Khaled's thoughts early on in the story, that may have been a saving grace. But there was too little of it to show any kind of tenderness that would assuage his haughty I-shall-have-the-last-word attitude. He's a manipulative arse with no conscience. I pity the heroine.

Sapphire, on the other hand, while a successful careerwoman, was a closet-doormat...more
Stolen by the Sheikh is Trish Morey’s 3rd romance novel. When a tall, dark and handsome man walks into Sapphy Clemenger’s fashion boutique in Milan, she’s immediately attracted. But the man she knows as Khaled wants her to design a wedding dress for his bride-to-be. And he insists she come to his home city in the small independent desert state, Jebbai, to design and make the dress. Sheikh Khaled Al-Ateeq has very personal reasons for virtually kidnapping Sapphy, and the dress is just a pretext....more
A fun quick read and the storyline has got a different twist to it. I loved how she was coerced to fly off to his country with the pretext of making a wedding gown for his bride. Only to find out that she happens to be the bride because he wants to exact revenge against her supposed fiance. Definitely a break from the traditional kidnap type storyline. I also really liked the Hero.....and you could feel the chemistry. However, I ended up rating it 3 stars, because it felt like the latter part of...more
though the story was good it didn't touch me emotionally... too bad.

This is a really good read. It has all the emotions. This story is about revenge to the fullest and how grief and loss is handled. Somrtimes with the right person they can help you move on. Even in the beginning Khalad persude Sapphy for revenge and stole her away to his country to become his wife. He didn't expect her to steal his heart.
Lady Raven RAVE!
I thought the concept of the storyline was sweet and just ahhhhhhhh. I loved it and thought it was good thE fact that she didn't know she was to be married to the shiekh and was brought there under false pretense was a little different for me to read....YOU'LL LOVE IT TOO if your a biG fan of sheikh stories
This has to be one of the better and gutsiest sheikh type books out there. It was so full of awesomeness, not to mention a scene of carnal pleasures. I was shocked that we didn't get an epilogue and the story ended so quickly but it was a pretty darling novel.
Rereading old Presents novels continues...

This was pretty good. Classic 'Presents' - exotic locale, lead characters from foreign countries (anything not US to me)....which I love.

Liked the story and there was great chemistry btwn the h and h.

Was a fair one time read but not much strength in the story. The heroine is involved with someone but then promptly falls in love with the hero. The hero seems to be intent on revenge. The reasons also seem valid but the story itself lacks vitality.
