Recommends it for: Sheikh fans
Shelves: category
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 enjoyed this older Harlequin. Thanks to seton for the rec since I had never heard of this one.
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.

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