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 out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The scene where the H ruthlessly tells the h why he had married her was absolutely awful. I felt incredibly disgusted by the H and wasn't sure how the author was ever going to redeem him. He was really a heartless bast**d. The rest of the story was pretty good because the h had her own plan and she turned things around a lot. The ending chapters are probably the most real and realistic that I've read in an HP and not all a a fairytale but more like a good compromise and a satisfying hea.
Cleo Churchill travels lands her in Jhurat, where she runs into Sultan Khaled. Cleo has been traveling since breaking off her engagement to her cheating fiancée. Cleo wants an adventure and a fairy tale, while Khaled looks at Cleo as his salvation to show the outside world that his country is not barbaric. Khaled wants businesses and investments to come into the country and put down the unrest in the country. He figures an American nobody will help turn the world’s perception around. He will romance her, make her fall in love with him and then marry him and provide a fairy tale for the world.
Overall, it was disappointing. At any point of time in the story, I didn’t like the heroine, the hero or both. The first half, the heroine spent an inordinately large amount of time comparing Khaled to her ex-fiancée. But as Khaled woos her for 3 months before getting married. She seems to want the fairytale more than the man, she never questions him about his feelings, his family. Nothing of import. But she gets upset at her family, when they question her. Then she has a wakeup call, that everything is not happily ever after in her fairy tale, she runs instead of fighting. It just felt too immature.
Khaled was not any better, he is condescending and mocking. I am the sultan, whatever I say is law. He only thinks of doing his duty and is flabbergasted when Cleo is questioning his authority. Exactly what did he expect to happen? I couldn’t understand why he believes that he either could be a husband or ruler, and the book didn’t convince me with the reason given.
I thought the ending might just redeem this story, but no.
Cleo gives him an ultimatum to choose her over duty, but in Khaled’s defense he just learned that there is unrest in his country that he must deal with. To me, Cleo seems selfish and seemed petty for this, it wasn’t something minor like a state dinner or charity function. I really didn’t expect him to choose her over what he had to do. That I understood, but Khaled could have tried to show her that while he still must do his duty, he will show her he loves her and make up for it when he can. But he doesn’t. Instead it is Cleo who comes back, basically saying that it’s okay that you put me second place in your life. There was no redemption for the hero, and the heroine lost all my respect.
The epilogue shows how they are happy now that they have learned to compromise. This pissed me off. Seriously, this was the big lesson they learned. We saw no one takes responsibility, no issue gets resolved, but everything is fixed in the epilogue because they learned to compromise. Since the story didn’t make any sense, I guess the epilogue wouldn’t either.
I really did not like how she made the woman go back with the man. it took away from the book he didn't have to neglet his country but the wife deserved more from him than he gave her. and we have yet another crappy ending where she settles for what she could get. stupid stupid stupid. ending.
but the beginning and middle and almost ending deserve five stars. please read it is a must read
