This story was not good! The plot barely made sense, it was all over the place. The hero is an Angry Boner Man who is mean to heroine because she makes him horny and he doesn't want to be (dude just take care of it yourself). The heroine acts all flighty and hysterical at the sight of the Sheikhy's glorious personage and knows it's true love after a day of him treating her like crap. Ahh how romantic.

Here is my short plot summary:

I read an article some time ago about this series of Mills and Boon romances entitled: "The Sheikh Who loved me, Romancing the War on Terror" which argued that M&B were directing their authors to write such romances in order to allay some of their readers' fears and miscomprehensions about the middle-east. These books are all written in fictional "Arabian" countries such as Zuran or Dhurahn (you know, turn left at the roundabout by B&Q) and featured sizzling romances between Arab men and ...more
The hero and heroine's extreme reactions to each other on first meeting aren't very believable -- basically they bump into each other in a hallway and immediately start kissing. The story was ok, but the characters' inner monologues were too melodramatic. Ok read.

I enjoyed this book,
Although an engrossing read, I found this to be disappointing on several fronts. Vere appeared to be a likable guy when he first appeared in his brother's book, Taken By The Sheikh. The Vere that shows up in this book is guarded and hostile to the heroine, Samantha, for far too long. If the hero is going to be that hostile to the heroine, then he better be groveling a lot at the end or fall deep and fast early on in the story, which didn't happen.

Because Vere's parents died when he was a teenag

It was an okay read. I didn't enjoyed the push and pull in their relationship. The book was too predictable and both the heroine and hero weren't realistic enough for me to give this more than 2 stars. But I'm still looking forward to read more books from the author.

I just don't think Penny Jordan works for me as an author at all. I rarely find anything redeemable in her books, not even the tropes and heightened emotions I look for in HP titles.

Torn between giving this 3 and 4 stars. About another sheikh from a fictional country and the English girl in the desert. Some good emotional points, but his character was inconsistent.

Arap ülkelerinde geçen kitaplar okumaktan hoşlanmıyorum çünkü bana araplar gerçekte de kitaplarda da zorba olarak görünüyorlar ama bu kitap değişik geldi.Yani Okudum ama Vere'nin bazı nedenlerden dolayı metres olmasını istemesi ve Hanımlar bölümü harem vs bölümler bana tiksindirici geliyor ama genede okudum.
Beni etkileyen tek şey ise İlk karşılaştıklarında pardon çarpıştıklarında birbirlerine duydukları duygular.
Kader belki de böyle birşey? Kim bilir?
