I haven't read a Harlequin book in probably years, but had a huge craving for a sweet Sheikh romance and this quenched the thirst nicely.
It was exactly what I find typical of a Harlequin romance, sweet, easy to read and almost always leaves me with the nice fuzzy feeling (and hopefully good dreams).
I loved this story and it has reignited my love of all things 'Sheikh'. I really have to get me one of those.
I really enjoyed the beginning of this book and thought it had loads of potential. I only wished the second half was a fast paced and interesting as the first half.
Despite this still a decent read!
A swashbuckling romantic story and I loved it! The h was educated, strong and feisty, I liked how she handled herself when in a tough spot. The H was definitely the star for me; alpha male, prince, warrior and protector; he knew what he wanted and pursued it. You knew early on he really liked the h and, in true pirate fashion, he wanted to make her his. He'll make you want a sexy pirate prince of your very own. It's light, fluffy and a real gem..........d;)
