What I loved most about this book is how strong the heroine is. Soraya may have been brought up in a traditional way, and she may have scars from anything but an easy upbringing, but she is full of hidden strength, determination, an indomitable will, intelligence and sensuality. I reveled in seeing her insist on her last chance, and not hesitating to stand her ground. Of course she has a vulnerable side to her too, but that fits right in. She isn’t simply beautiful and head over heels in love with the hero, but has a brain and heart of her own, and a story to tell. She sounds like someone to admire and to cherish as a friend, and perfect to be a ruler’s bride.
Karim is everything I could have hoped for, and a perfect match for Soraya. His intoxicating mix of power, confidence, fierce loyalty, principles, hot looks, cleverness and stubbornness made him come alive. I’d definitely fall for his charms too if I were Soraya. I loved it that he is also hiding a softer side, and a very tragic past that almost overshadows the present.
As I’ve come to expect it from the author’s novels, the ‘steamy scenes’ were wonderfully written, so sensual they nearly melted my screen, and so much more than just a romp in the sheets. The descriptions of France as the setting were the icing on the cake, making the story feel even realer.
Zahir is sent from his Emir to bring Soraya, his chosen one, back home to her homeland palace. Soraya negotiates a month's travel before she has to return to be married to the Emir, someone 30 years her senior and who she never thought would actually make her marry him. Unfortunately, duty bound, she begins her tripping around to see the world before marriage and life as a Queen. The only catch is Zahir is to accompany her. Their feelings grow for each other and by the time they return home they're in love. But what of the Emir?!?
Annie West has such a wonderful way with words Im always on my magic carpet flying away to lands I'll never see in reality. It's like I'm there, descriptions are wonderfully rich and dialogue is always fantastic.
It's a delight to discover Zahir and Soraya make an appearance in Annie West's Imprisoned by a Vow.
