After finishing, I now remember why I don't read these kind of books.
WTF was I thinking? I'm not even sure why I even picked it up in the first place. I was in an admittedly strange mood whilst perusing the library and had a hankering for some sheikh love. Not only did I get this one out, I got the sequel, plus a book named 'The Devil Wears Plaid'. *
So anyway, the plot (there was a plot?) consisted of talking about events that I assume had happened in the previous series, 'Pride of Zohayd', so I would recommend reading that one first. I did get mightily confused over all the different family connections and kingdoms. The rest of the book was filled with sex, unexpected orgasms, and a heroine being a bit of a doormat. It was all rather pointless.
I have to admit I'm a little disappointed in my first foray into the world of sheikhs. But, I will not be disheartened. I have a few more of them in mind (not least forgetting the stupid sequel I have to read - which is about Jalal, who was incredibly boring).
*When I came back, my sister's exact words were, "they look like the books nan reads" - i.e. Mills & Boon
