"I'M WHAT...?"

No, not pregnant, thank heavens. Emma would have known that. But married? Well, if the man standing before her--the very love of her college life--was to be believed, she was. And suddenly he was claiming to be a desert prince, too. Sure, they'd had a "pretend" ceremony and honeymoon in the Caribbean. But it was pretend, wasn't it?

One of my favorites in this series.
In the previous book we find out Reyhan is married. In this book we meet Emma.
Emma is the sole child of over protective older parents. 6 years after Reyhan left her, she gets a mysterious invitation to visit Bahania and is coerced to go.
Subsequently finding out she's a princess about to be divorced.
I liked both the characters. The brooding Reyhan as well as the strong Emma.
I also liked that everything was not roses and stars when they first met.

What happens when a naive, young woman meets the man of her dreams, but is destroyed when he abandons her? Emma went through with a wedding to Reyhan, only to have him leave, then found out that the wedding was a fake. Devastated, she turns to becoming an RN, helping to deliver babies.

Her life is disrupted when she is swept off to Bahania and finds out that she is indeed married- to a prince of the country. Reyhan does *not* want his wife there, and in fact asks his father, the king, to grant hi

7/10

I'll be honest, I only read this book to see more of Sadik and Cleo, and unfortunately I was mostly disappointed.

Other than the fact that Cleo and Sadik make small appearance together in the book, I enjoyed reading this much more than I thought I would.

I loved Reyhan. He was humorous in a Very dry way that I found myself bursting into laughter over something small he said. He was extremely loyal but also jaded in his views of love. That made the pursuit even more entertaining.

DAMN these b

Emma Kennedy met and fell for Reyhan in college, but she didn't know he was Middle Eastern royalty. Out of the blue, an employee of the US State Department arrives at the door of her Dallas apartment to issue and "suggest" she accept a two-week invitation to Bahania where she is shocked to encounter the man she thought had made a fool of her with a fake marriage.
Meanwhile, Reyhan has thought that Emma rejected him when he returned to claim her after a family emergency. He hates that his desire

Prince Reyhan claimed his father, the king, had decided it was time for him to marry. There was just one little glitch--Reyhan was already married. So, t

I liked Emma, but hated her parents. Its one thing to protect someone you love another really different is to suffocate someone. And reading things book, following how Emma discovered their lies was so sick and twisted love. I just don’t get why they would want their kid to suffer and live alone.

But I liked Reyhan and after all those years he was still looking after Emma, plus he still loved her and cared so much that he didn’t want another marriage. I understand it must have been an awful exper

The eighth in this series, this one is about Rahan and his wife Emma, who he abandoned six years previously. The plot was a bit contrived and I don't get the princes in these books, since they all seem to have difficulty admitting that they love someone. I also can't imagine anything worse than living a public life, so there is little appeal in the prince theme.

I liked the male lead and I liked Emma, but the whole man-has-issues-dealing-with-love thing that the author has going on is getting a bit old. The melodrama in this novel is highly unrealistic but fairly entertaining. Emma's parents are scum and she forgives them too easily. Overall this novel felt a bit rushed, for some reason.
