Sheikh Karim forces Princess Galila to marry him after she unknowingly reveals his family’s darkest secret. Having been groomed to rule from age six after his father’s death, Karim has hardened his heart to love and marriage. He is only interested in ruling his kingdom and protecting his mother from the secret that would crush her.

Princess Galila was doted on by her mother as a young girl, but as she grew, her mother’s jealousy turned to scorn, leaving Galila confused and starving for love and acceptance. She has a bubbly personality, that at times can appear juvenile, but her inner strength grows with the story and I enjoyed the transformation.

The chemistry explodes on the pages between these two. Their pasts put them on opposite ends of the love spectrum and I enjoyed the fact that the reader is given the answer to the key conflict right at the beginning. I love books like this, where you just know there’s going to be a big wedge driven between them, and how will they get past this? I was a little surprised by how the author brought out the conflict; it wasn’t as explosive as I’d expected but it still worked. This was a very sensual read, and really well done with a virgin heroine trope.

Once Galila works out the dark secret that threatens Karim, I really enjoyed how she went to him. I thought that portrayed her as very modern and mature within her relationship. The internal conflicts from both characters were deep and very believable. I don’t read a lot of Sheikh stories but I’m starting to love them and this one certainly delivered, leaving this reader smiling and happy.
