It's hard to review without giving away the pony but I'll try. Janna is planning Nassir's wedding and falls for him. Nassir has a lot going on in business and it's the main driver for his desire to wed. The antagonist has much to gain if Nassir fails. When Janna gets in trouble it feels like Nassir brushes it off. If he truly loved her, I feel his reaction would have been different. Still and enjoyable read even with my scoffs lol

Since being a young boy Sheikh Nassir Adjalane has dedicated his life to his family's business and now he's being told in order to keep his position he has to marry....
“You will marry an American, and you will do so in the next thirty days."
"Or what?” Nassir demanded. These men could not be serious.
"Or we will replace you.”
"Replace me? I am Nassir Adjalane and heir to this empire....."
Ok so to say he's not happy is an understatement but surprisingly he quickly finds his bride she's the

From the hot and sexy cover, to the very last page, Leslie North has inexplicably drawn you in to this quick and easy to read love story. Remarkably well-written with a great mix of romance, drama, humor, attraction, oh so hot sex, which all eventually lead to love and a HEA.
Luzia Bielefeld *BookWhore BR*
Typical story about sheikh who has a deadline to get married and a heroin kind of silly and naive. Instant love and happy ending. The villain is a little over the top.

*Yawnnnnn* I just don't get it. Nassir is totally obnoxious and throughout the entire book, he was either working or doing some wedding stuff with the clueless bride. I don't know at which point lust gave way to love because I don't see when they get to know about each other to fall for each other. And the best part is, when Janna was kidnapped, he was more concerned about getting married, to someone else just to save his company, instead of searching for his supposed 'beloved'. What rubbish is ...more

Nassir has an interesting way of things, “because…” Nassir turned as well and sighed. There she was. Janna Davis. His bride. “She is already here.” Nassir is demanding and he's totally unapologetic for it and it's a turn on, “Janna.” He turned so abruptly that she almost ran into the back of him. “Unless you wish to accompany me in my shower, I’d suggest you meet me at the restaurant. Say, one hour?” I loved this book, it was short and kept my attention.

Leslie North has a way of bringing every woman's fantasy to life through her books. I love the fairy tale of a rich prince finding his one true love in the least likely places and the Prince doing everything in his power to make her his. Overall I enjoyed this tell and look forward to many more. A few typos need to be edited but does not take away from the beauty of the story!!!

Really liked the idea of a woman unknowingly arranging her own wedding and I enjoyed this aspect of the story. What let it down for me was that I didn't feel that I got to know any of the characters very well, which was a shame.

Wow. That was unexpectedly really enjoyable. I thought for sure it will be at least OK story. But I was wrong. Finished in one go. I'm so glad I gave it a chance. Now I'm curious about other sheikhs in the story. lol

Not So Secret, Deceived.

This is one of the better Sheikh/American romance novellas but still unrealistic. The sheikh, Nassir was as arrogant as the others. The American, Janna, showed a lot more fire than the other brides. Still, she gave in too easily to his sexual advances to not have any experience.

There was a better plot with a little intrigue and drama at the end of the book. More of Nassir's and Janna's backstories were told. You also knew a little about her family. Once again the sheikh's

First book in set

Entertaining and with a bit of suspense thrown in near the end, for good measure. Look forward to next book in series.

Leslie North - The Sheikh's Secret Bride - (The Adjalane Sheikhs Series Book 1)

The story begins with Sheikh Nassir Adjalane being told by the board of Adjalane Oil that he had to settle down and stop drawing so much negative press on Adjalane Oil. They gave him 30 days to find a bride and she must be American. Odd requirement but their position was that they wanted to do more business with the West and an American wife would prove they are moving that way. Nassir was all about work with no

I love this author’s ability to capture my attention from the opening pages and never let go. This is a short, but satisfying, romp into the world of arranged marriages where East meets West. Janna Davis is a wedding planner who is happy doing what she loves while providing for her family at the same time. Sheikh Nassir Adjalane also knows the value of family and won’t let himself he pushed out of the company his family built up. When their paths

I am in love with this series! There is nothing better than to kick back and read a wonderful love story to have your heart swelling and your pulse running. Leslie North has an awesome way of making that happen with her tales.
When Sheikh Nassir is given a month to find and wed an American bride, he baulked at the idea, but set out to complete the task in a business fashion. He was given a special privilege of attending the wedding of a neighbouring sheikh in the USA. Here, he meets their wedding
