The Sheikh's Redemption
And then there is Roxanne Gleeson, the lover who once rejected him. Now she pretends a cold disdain for their desperate passion. But he will not be denied either the throne of his motherland or Roxanne back in his bed. Together they are…his redemption.
A start to another great series from Ms Gates. It is very closely linked to the Pride of Zohayd series and although it is not essential that you read that series first, I do strongly recommend that you do as it will help the characters and story fall into place.
Haidar returns to his homeland as one of the three candidates to become king. Roxanne, the woman who walked away from him eight years ago, is the political-economic analyst who has been assigned to help the country recover from t ...more
From an early age Prince Haidar Aal Shalaan’s mother had drilled into his head that he should and would be King. But circumstances at birth made it impossible. Nobody imagined how far his mother would go to make that happen. Now with the cloud of his mother’s actions hanging over him, Haidar has to prove that he was merely a pawn in her deceit, not a willing participant who had no knowledge of his plot. Through his arrogance he lost the one woman he loved, ...more
But yeah, Haidar is so hot, and powerful and fun and accessible, you just want to drag him out of the pages and eat him up. And the continuing stories of those luscious Aal Shalaan brothers in this book had me involved and not knowing what will come next. The heat level was off the charts, the interaction between Haidar and Roxanne (and him and RASHID!!!!) was so emotional and mesmerizing, and OMG so WITTY I found myself memorizong wh ...more
As I've come to expect from the incomparable Gates, this book is chock ...more
Hello, Harlequin Presents series Desire!
I have a great many friends that read these books but the truck load. Always, I have been curious as to what draws them to the quick reads of Harlequin that seem to cookie cutter and perfect. So, I took a chance and requested for review a few books. Let me just say, that with Olivia Gates, I was not disappointed!
The Sheikh’s Redemption is the story about one hell of a sexy Alpha male—well three that we see actually. Gates is so kind a ...more

I loved the verbal exchanges between Haidar and Roxanne, very smart. It was entertaining to read till the end even though I was confused by the royal int ...more
Straight away I was hooked to the masculine dominance of Haidar. I love the stern, possessive and confident types and although Haidar wasn't confident underneath all his emotional armor he definitely acted self assured.
Roxanne and Haidar are mean't for each other but due to a monumental misunderstanding they are no longer together...*insert dramatic music* Until divine ...more

Man can Olivia write smokin' sex scenes or what?!
"The Sheikh's Redemption" is the story of Haider and Roxanne.
Basically this is a second chance romance between our H and h, who were separated due to misunderstandings and reunite be ...more
There are lots of angst in this book because H and h were lovers some years ago and things didn't end nicely so I liked that.
The big BUT is that I'm not a fan of non-virgin heroines, specially if there were lovers in between her relat ...more

But one thing is for sure…there will always be central romances in my books. The all-consuming kind that leaves readers breathless and begging for more.
I love to hear fron my readers, so ...more
