The desert king’s outrageous proposal!

Marry a sheikh in return for a hefty financial reward? Shy researcher Jane Smith would normally have laughed in Zayed Al Zawba’s handsome face. Except it’s only for six months and the money will rescue her sister who’s mired in debt…

Sheikh Zayed will do anything to inherit Kafalah’s neighbouring oil-rich lands, even wed plain Jane: he’ll never long to consummate a marriage with her! But Zayed hasn’t bargained on Jane’s frumpy clothes hiding delicious curves… Or that her quick mind and untouched beauty could tease and tempt him beyond his wildest imaginings!

Another engaging journey from Ms Kendrick, 4 stars 🌟 :

Rating By Clare,14/04/2017

Ms Kendrick is a go to author for me her books are always full of strong alpha males who sweep their loves into happily ever afters, and The Sheikh's Bought Wife is no different. We meet our hero Sheikh Zayed Al Zawba in the prologue meeting with his advisor's discussing the terms of his grandfather's will and the associated conditions. It is Zayed's actions during the meeting and his comments about women or more specifically our heroine Dr Jane Smith that show Zayed to be extremely superficial and arrogant. Dr Jane Smith is an academic working at the Kafalah Embassy and is the polar opposite of the type of women Zayed normally gets involved with which is why he approaches her for his plan to work, a unconsummated marriage for six months to meet the conditions of his grandfather's will. Jane is innocent and has spent her life dedicated to her studies of Kafalah, giving no thought to men or her looks, however in order to help her twin sister who Jane feels is everything she isn't, she agrees to Zayed’s plan. What follow’s is an engaging journey between two people who as we learn more about their backgrounds see the trust and confidence between them grow, will Sheikh Zayed Al Zawba keep to his original plan or will Dr Jane Smith infiltrate the Sheikh's heart so he realises his plan was flawed and he and Jane are in it for the HEA! Although it is not referred to in this book I hope Ms Kendrick is planning to write the story of Jane's sister Cleo, as the character and circumstances we are introduced to at the end of the book suggests an intriguing story very close, fingers crossed! Fyi I received my copy from NetGalley and Mills and Boon via Mills and Boon Insiders, although this does not influence my opinions.

Sharon Kendrick puts the Oh in Outrageous heroes

Rating By Sue,23/04/2017

I loved the 5-star-plus beginning. Zayed won’t be everyone’s cup of Arabian tea but he’s definitely mine. Sharon Kendrick heroes should come with her very own trademark. I adored his über-arrogance and the heroine he’s been given, and rubbed my hands together at the promise of her calling him on it. Librarian / academic is another favourite character and Jane is more ugly-duckling than Cinderella. She’s strong, caring, easy to empathise with. Definitely a match for Zayed. The best thing about the book’s first half was forgetting to read as a reviewer and reading as a reader--there's some fab dialogue / interaction. Jane's character arc seems to be discovering her fine feathers on a voyage of sensual discovery, which fits well with SK's voice and its strong focus on sensuality and love scenes. The relationship’s inherent sexual tension is like living on a cliff edge. It wouldn’t take much to tip them over into consummating their marriage. The Black Moment undermined some of this lovely sexual tension and conflict for me, as I found myself thinking 'wouldn’t he have known that from the lawyers before?' and 'would she really have sent that email?' Zayed's internal conflict is obviously there in who he is and what he does, but it felt too easily dealt with; too rushed at the end. I'd have liked more exploration of this, for the heroine to dig around in the sand a bit more to discover her sheikh’s heart. 'The Sheikh’s Bought Wife' is classic Modern. It’s enjoyable, on the hotter side of the line, with an engaging heroine and Sharon Kendrick™ OTT hero. But classic is a bit of a double edged sword here as for me it was a bit too classic. 3.5-3.75 stars
