Juliette is unrolled from a rug, dumped at Prince Khalid s feet and offered as a gift Prince Khalid has no idea what to do with the demanding and impudent, although beautiful woman, except take her to the harem.
which is empty Then he discovers her love of archeology and they bond as friends But a Prince is expected to marry for alliances, so they may not have much of a future Very short It s hard to create fully fleshed out characters with deep motivations in so little space So naturally, the story is mostly superficial, but still enjoyable There s a touch of forced seduction going on, but it doesn t really go anywhere, so it s acceptable And then we get a bit of telling instead of showing as they become friends fall in love , but that s the nature of the novella.
I really tried but I found this story a bit rapey, especially after the main male character decided to forcibly give this girl he d only moments ago met, a bath Then I d had it I did not enjoy or find any part of this even remotely romantic or moving except toward the emotions of anger and horror This was my first book by this author and I am wary of new authors for this same betrayal of my mind so I will not be trying another.
We really need to start expecting from this genre.
This was a nice book I can t say anything bad at all, but I can t say something incredibly praising either It was very short, yet the story did not feel incomplete or in a hurry The connection between both characters developed quickly, and they fell in love in a heartbeat I guess that if you want to read something nice, short, exciting and sensual, then this is the right choice.
7 wonderfully sweet stars Marguerite Kaye is now my new favourite author I adore her heroines and her heroes, her cute, fluffy and sweet stories I m going to read one book by her and, if I love that one too, I m going to go and officially become a fan of her on her GR page I love this woman.
This story was a short, adorably sweet read yeah, I gave it a lower rating because it was too short I loved the heroine right from the beginning, with her feisty innocence, her pride, her practicalness and her sweetness It was a wonderful reprieve from all the other awful heroines I ve been reading in the past few days I liked how she didn t try to cover her father s wrongdoings, even though he was her father and she loved him dearly She wasn t blind or dense, she was honest and practical She was an adorable spitfire.
The hero was in a league of his own, being so kind and honourable with her I loved him too, but only after he stopped his high handedness.
What I didn t like about the novel, what made me give it a lower rating, was the whole Arab theme, the harem theme I ve said it before and I ll say it again I hate Arab themed novels because they usually have harem related themes in them But this one wasn t as bad as a couple others I ve read What or less irked me was how the hero behaved with her in the beginning, telling her that she was his to do whatever he pleased I know something s grammatically wrong in that sentence structure, I just don t know how to fix it Anyways, that s what annoyed me, him saying things like that to her and acting in a cavalier way towards her, even though he believed it wasn t right.
I could have done with the Arab male chauvinism act.
But then, in the harem which is empty and hasn t been used since his father s time, might I add , he stops himself from deflowering her and I just instantly fell in love with him How I love honourable heroes who stop themselves, despite their intense wanting for the heroines, just to protect their honour God, Marguerite Kaye Moving onto the story and plotline This was a short story, so there really wasn t much going on But I ll take this opportunity to once again state how wonderful a writer Kaye is Her writing style is amazing, and her attention to detail is stupefying It is really obvious that she has done her research The flow is so very smooth and I absolutely positively adore her characters Looking forward to the next book in the series This was a very short and cute read I would give it a high 3 1 2 but a 4 star is the closest I do love my sheikh romance so compare to the other sheikh books I read this was like a light version This story reminds me of a historial read that I have read a couple years back, familiar to how Juliette was captured and given to the sheikh in a rug rolled up Khalid and Juliette story was very romantic and sweet, the relationship they developed and there mutual interest in history, the book had it s sexy moments as well granted by the title I was expecting much It had a cute ending and would maybe try another book by the author Feel free to join my book group on Facebook Romance Novel Junkies and fan page Romance Novel Junkies Book Reviews We have over 500 members, which includes well known and indie authors and avid readers as members who are apart of this group We would love to hear about new books and thoughts Also check out our kindle and ebook lending library Twitter romanceJUNKIES.
