Amber has always threatened Kazim’s tightly held control. Yet if he is to save his nation – and his marriage – he must finally make the ultimate claim…on his wife!

Praise for Rachael Thomas

Claimed by the Sheikh 4* RT Book Review
Thomas’s tale is full of secrets, lies and veiled passion. Her visual depiction of the exotic, opulent desert locales and the emotionally heartrending ending is excellent.

A Deal Before the Altar 4* RT Book Review
Thomas’ high-society romance is a terrific debut. Her vulnerable-beneath-the-bravado heroine and lonely, aloof hero make multiple convincing miscalculations on their obstacle-laden road to love — and their heat between the sheets blazes.


Rating By Amanda,06/06/2015

A sensational love story about duty, second chances, redemption and of course burning passion that keeps the pages turning! A quick steamy read. Recommended 4/5 Stars.

An arranged marriage to Prince Kazim - Al- Amed of Brazbin is a dream come true for Princess Amber, but then the wedding night comes and it all goes spectacularly wrong and a highly furious Kazim banished Amber from his kingdom and his life. But now the country is in turmoil and Kazim must prove to his people that he has the ability to rule and provide an heir for his people, to do this he has to track down his princess first! But find her he will, but will she fall at his feet and forgive him allowing him to stake the ultimate claim on his wife, of will she be the one sending him away? From the first time I read this author's work I was amazed and just how much clarity she pours into her work, nothing is left the imagination. Think about when you watch a tv show and it abruptly stops and moves on to a next scene, am always left thinking " Okay was that over?" , and sadly this happens in books all the time. But not with this author she lays it all out and wows the reader in the process with remarkable romance. I adored Kazim 's sexy fierce power struggle and Amber was totally wow , she wants to fight it all but deep down there is still the powerful love she has for her prince and it overpowers all those thoughts of sending him away, fabulous stuff! An amazing read about trust and forgiveness. Highly recommended for all readers who love a hotter than the desert sun read with loads of sweet romance. 5/5 star review " Banished from his life, haunted by the past , willing to be claimed "

Let down

Rating By R,16/01/2015

Overall I though Ms Thomas' debut novel was very good which makes this even more of a let-down. The main problem was the hero Kazim who seemed to be a mass of contradictions and very judgmental towards Amber based on rumour and conjecture. I found him nondescript and lacking in charisma and never seemed to show any remorse. Amber was likable enough and I liked the strength she showed in the first few chapters but then she vacillated. By the end I really had no interest in whether they made their happy ending or not. If it had not been for the beginning I would have rated this 1 star. as overall it could be summed up in one word - dull. Four out of ten.
