Could she ever escape his hold on her?

The first time she felt the powerful magnetism of the Arab, Ashley Cunningham ran from him, terrified of the bond of attraction between them. It was something she'd never before encountered.

Recommends it for: Sheikh fans

Sheikh abducts Australian widow, a day after meeting her in a casino and chasing her through her hotel.

This is a rather straightforward The Sheik homage. Recommended if sheikh captor romances are your cuppa. They dont appeal that much to me personally, but I still found it a dramatic read, Old Skool style.

Despite this being from the HQN Romance line rather than a Presents, it even has a sex scene (borderline forced seduction).

Setting: Egypt

Grade: B+

I could hear that "silent-movie music" playing in the background as I read.

Oh the melodrama! Everyone else is reading this so I thought I'd give it a whirl too. Improbable and goofy fun. He's in love within two minutes. It all happens within 2 and a half days. It was like watching one of those books where you flip the pages to make a little scene happen. Brrrip and it's done! Lots of angsty declarations of desire and love. A fun way to spend a hour or so.

This book reminded me of old movies, where all the actors and actresses dramatically overact each scene.

But I still liked it because the hero was crazily in love with the heroine and there was a sweet side characters love story.

This turned out to be a surprisingly entertaining read. There was more to this book than I expected given the synopsis. Although overly dramatic at times, the plot and the characters were more complex than I had initially anticipated. The minor characters were nicely drawn and added a little something extra to the story. The writing flowed so smoothly that I was completely engaged from the first page; and even though I knew there would be a HEA ending, I couldn't wait to see how Darcy would brin ...more

Tyhle volovinky opravdu zbožňuju. K tomu, aby se člověk nezbláznil z učení se hodí výtečně. :D
Ale bože nikdy jsem si nevšimla toho šíleného slohu. :D Na absurditu a pohádkovou nareálnost jsem si už zvykla, to mne ani nepřekvapilo.

Couldn't believe the love. Didn't see it. Didn't feel it. So very weird novel.
