‘I was blackmailed into this marriage. I will not be blackmailed into bed.’

Princess Ghizlan of Jeirut has returned home to find that warrior Sheikh Huseyn al Rasheed has seized her late father’s kingdom. With her sister held hostage, Ghizlan has no choice. Her barbarian captor is determined to tame her, rule her – and make her his own!

Forcing Ghizlan’s hand in marriage will not be enough to conquer her body and soul: Huseyn’s iron-will is challenged at every step by her magnificent beauty and fierce pride. It won’t be long before they both fall prey to the firestorm between them…

Lesson in sensuality

Rating By Sue,09/04/2017

Fab opening scene compelled me to buy when I read it on the M&B website. Despite the strong heroine and the tension-filled wedding, the beginning is slightly overwritten which slows the pace here. And the hero’s opening point of view made me afraid that he wasn’t going to be alpha enough for me or for the strong heroine. But the first love scene is wow! Passionate. Sexy. Sensual Intense. Emotional. This isn't a skippable love scene. It's a can't look away one. And the hero’s concern in the emotional aftermath. And how it’s paced…And…. The hero and heroine’s every action took on more importance after this scene, as every look every glance is a facet of their personalities nuanced with their reactions to what’s happened. And how it changes things. And how this emotional turning point revs up the pace. My concerns about the hero not being alpha enough were soon put to bed, so to speak. He’s exciting and Ghizlan’s behaviour and taunts just bring out his alphaness. The second love scene is where they are now in their relationship. There’s emotion and character/ relationship development, just not quite as much as I wanted. The slow climb to the Black Moment *fasten your seatbelts* reinforces the depth of their connection, building to an emotional high. But the speed is a bit too slow for me here too. The Black Moment itself isn’t big and dramatic as you'd expect, but I love it when the turning point is something relatively small and quiet but the responses it triggers threaten the relationship. And this one is so right for the characters. If there’d been more heroine character development and drawing out of the barbarian in the sheikh a bit more, then this would have been a read-in-one-sitting romance. Four stars.

Another great book by Annie West. With her characters you always feel you are in the room with them. You can imagine the beautiful clothes they wear. This was another brilliant story that had me hooked from start to finish . Can't wait to read her next one.
