About the Author
During her high school and college years, she spent a lot of time dreaming about holding a book in her hands that had her name emblazoned across the front, but she did a lot more dreaming than actual writing.
At her very first job she was fortunate enough to meet her very own tall, dark and handsome hero, who happened to be her boss, and she promptly married him and started a family. It wasn't until she was pregnant with her second child that she found her very first Harlequin Presents book in a local thrift store. She'd never read a Harlequin romance before, and by the time she'd reached the happily ever after she had fallen in love. She devoured as many as she could get her hands on after that, and she knew that these were the books she wanted to write!
Soon after that she saw that Harlequin was running a competition to win an editor for a year. She decided that was her sign to get in gear and start writing again. So she wrote her chapter and synopsis and hit send with trembling hands. She didn't get any feedback from the contest, but it was the boost she needed to get her first full manuscript finished and submitted to Harlequin Presents.
Nearly two years later, while pregnant with her third child, she received The Call from her editor, informing her they wanted to buy that manuscript. She was very glad that the good news didn't send her promptly into labor!
She still can't quite believe she's blessed enough to see her name on not just any book, but her favorite books.
Maisey lives with her supportive, wonderful, diaper-changing husband and three small children across the street from her parents, and the home she grew up in, in the wilds of southern Oregon.
She enjoys the contrast of living in a place where you might wake up to find a bear on your back porch and then head into the home office to write stories that take place in exotic urban locales. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Kavian ibn Zayed al Talaas, ruling Sheikh of the desert stronghold Daar Talaas, has finally tracked down his fiancée in the midst of the Canadian ski fields and hauls her home. He's decided that he wants his arranged Queen by his side. It is said so it shall be! Amaya is devastated she's been found, six months on the run and she's been half way around the world and back in her travels. The last thing she wants is to be cooped up in some god forsaken desert kingdom where she will be Queen!
Kavian spends his time convincing (or trying) Amaya she will make a fantastic Queen and he is 200% certain they will make the perfect team.
Once Amaya lets him in inch by inch it's harder for her to leave but she's quite convinced for many reasons she can't be who Kavian is convinced she can be. I loved the Sheikh Kavian was. He was old ways to Amaya's western modernised ways with most of the action taking place in his kingdom, the descriptions of which were incredibly realistic and aided my imagination that I was right there preparing dinner with Amaya for Kavian in the desert and I was right there during the stuffy official occasions they had to attend.
Five stars for such a strong and emotional story all of which is wrapped up perfectly in the last chapter. It nailed exactly how Kavian is and I think the author needs a massive high five because it was quite perfect. I wish I could quote everything Kavian said but I can’t because it's a perfect summation of why Kavian spends 11 chapters being who he is, acting how he does and saying what he does. And it's also why I leave the incredible skill of writing to the authors because all through the book I had no idea how to sum up in words how Kavian is. I understood how he was but had no clue how to put that in writing and then when I read the last chapter and what he said it was "hit the nail right on the head" moment.
To finalise I give Traded to the Desert Sheikh an whole extra star for the mention of my beautiful country New Zealand, which I assume was inspired by the authors recent visit <3 What a beautiful and magical few paragraphs describing my country perfectly. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to live here, thank you!

I've read 40% of this book and that's the focus of their "love". Found the story incredibly boring. Can't understand the 5 star reviews.
Summary of the story so far.... They are strangers who agree to an arranged marriage. After a few brief and formal meetings they have a betrothal ceremony. They are attracted to each other and have sex in a corner. She decides she can't marry him and flees, living on the run for six months. He apprehends her, whisks her back to his country. They bathe together in his outside pools where they almost have sex...... She hides in his closet and falls asleep behind his winter coats. He finds her brings her to bed where he bosses her around. She's hot for him and obeys his every command. Eventually begging him to have sex with her.
Awfully BORING. There was no love story here, just sex, and no chemistry in their attraction.
