Haven't really got the time to give a full review but will say that it was ok read and I did like it but it didn't wow me. I very much felt like I had read it all before but with different names and places etc.....Not sure I would want to go ahead and read it again.

Conflicted feelings about this one. I thought Karim was a major jerk to Eva. He was so judgmental towards her (pretty much because he had unresolved feelings towards his deceased wife). Eva, I liked, but I wish that her profound attraction to Karim didn't make her such a tongue-tied punching bag.I don't mind sweet and meek heroines, but I think I prefer heroines who will stand up for themselves more than Eva did. I would have liked her to be a little more spunky and come back at Karim when he ...more

Eva a modern girl suddenly learns she is royal and must marry Sheikh Karim. She freaks out and makes him believe she has a wild past so she is not a suitable bride for him.

But Karim is a great hero. Even though he believes her instead of calling her a slut like you would expect from a HP he wants to protect her reputation. His relationship with his deceased ex-wife damaged him, made him determined to never open his heart again. He has many regrets and can't let the past go. His daughter whom he

Royalty is not one of my favorite tropes, much less sheikhs, so I went into this book with low expectations. Putting aside the sheikh factor, I still would not have loved it. Every scene seemed to be so drawn out, an exchange between the two characters that probably would have lasted five minutes would take that many pages to get through. A character would say something, and then one of them would be thinking thinking thinking and in my mind I pictured the other character just frozen in place ...more

i was bored though this had great potential as karim was one of those delicious heroes which i loved ! unfortunately, the story did not work for me. karim had never been in love wid his ex-wife. he did not marry her for love. so i dunt see why he was so affected by her pregnancy by another man. he learned it right on his wedding night! so he did not sleep wid her nor made any attachment to her. so why was he so affected!?

This was a GREAT read ! I thoroughly enjoyed it! Eva, a long lost princess, is basically forced into marriage for the sake of peace between kingdoms. Karim, her husband is , however, hiding a secret that no-one knows about. A really good storyline, great characters and for me exceptionally enjoyable!

This was pretty good for a trashy romance novel. I finished it in one night because I couldn't sleep. The storyline is good and the smut isn't overwhelming...perfectly sexy without being over the top.

The Sheikh's Impatient Virgin was quite well written and an enjoyable read. I enjoyed the story. I loved the character's development in particular that of Eva. Kim Lawrence really has a way with words which really draws the readers and leaving them wanting more.

Good. Lol. It was a short reading, and yeah, i might stop reading harlequin. I prefer slow plot now.

The Sheikh's Impatient Virgin was very well written and I'm glad that I read it. Kim really knows how to write a book that pulls you into the story.

She returned there when she married, and her sons were both born on Anglesey, an island off the coast. Though not isolated, Anglesey is a little off the beaten track, but lively Dublin, which Kim loves, is only a short ferry ride away. Today they live on the farm her ...more
