When you pick up a sheikh romance, you expect exquisite palaces, beautiful women dressed lavishly, handsome, powerful men and glamour. You don't expect normal family scenes yet these are scattered through this story.
Annie West has skilfully integrated English florist Arden and her three year old son Dawud into the exotic life of a royal palace. There is a lot of hurt between Arden and Idris, the sheikh she fell in love with when she thought he was just an everyday tourist. Their relationship is complex but nicely developed, and both these characters felt real to me, as did Dawud, their little boy.
The plot is well paced and a real page turner. This story centres on the family that suddenly finds itself melding into a unit yet there are enough things going on around them to maintain the setting and keep my interest throughout. I loved it!

GreatReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 December 2016
A really lovely book the only let down the absence of an Epilogue. The Characters and Storyline are wonderful. Recommended.

Was a good story
Boring & slow paced!Reviewed in the United States on 4 February 2017
I love Annie West, but I couldn't finish this one. There was no connection between the H and h and, honestly, it was just so boring that I just stopped half way through and didn't bother to finish.

OkReviewed in the United States on 12 December 2016
Was ok. This chick over thought everything though, causing unnecessary angst. I skipped a lot of pages, but I may read again .
