Right off the bat, I have to say that I don't like these desert romances with the willowy blonde heroine being ravished by the swarthy Sheikh. But because it is VW, I decided to give it a chance. Surprisingly, it is not the cliche, racistish elements that bothered me If things like that bothered me, I could probably not read a single Harlequin book since they are all filled with gross, cartoonish generalizations about all ethnicities.

It was the incredible fact that VW managed to write a captive-captor story set in the desert and make it tedious, monotonous and boring! If I read trash, I expect to be entertained dammit! The captivity was a succession of tea parties and lamb roast dinners inside the Sheikh's tent, alternated with horseback riding in the dunes. Even a sandstorm and a visit to the royal palace left me snoozing.sfixbirdsandtercnews.cf/4803-whatsapp-datenbank-auf.php

And the end was pretty terrible. Apparently, it was taboo either to the author or the editor to have the heroine marry even a half- Arab so they made him the secret product of an affair between the Emir's Spanishe wife and a visiting French scholar. Apart from the original kidnapping, there was no hanky-panky until they were safely married, which is more than I can say for most other Harlequin heroes of assorted nationalities including European ones.

It was quite eloquent and evoked such vivid images of the desert. It's a book filled with the requisite amount of tension, chemistry and angst.
The hero is quite scrumptious It's beautifully written with a level of sophistication that you don't find in the newer HP's.

Sep 10, Nancy rated it liked it. Quaint, but with definite elements of male dominance that made it a rather wistful read. Entertaining, preposterous in plot and stilted in dialogue, the real story took place between the presence and the pearls. I'd read it again in a heartbeat. The nightingale sang in the garden where the blue jasmine starred the moonlit walls and Lorna no longer fled from the arms of her desert lover.
Never would either of them be lonely again. They had searched and found the golden garden Lorna is out visiting the desert in order to fulfill her late father's dying wish.

When she is out exploring a desert Oasis despite warnings, she is kidnapped initially by a horse thief- and later rescued and re-kidnapped by Prince Kasim ben Hussayn, who makes her his captive. As Lorna desperately tries to escape, Kasim is adamant about keeping her, wooing her with soft words as well, romantic gestures and letting his land work its magic on her.
Will Lorna be ultimately owned by a Desert King? A quintessential Sheikh-Harem romance, this had a very aesthetic feel to it with dialogues resembling well written prose.
The description of the land and people were accurately beautiful, with the author both respecting the Arab culture, as well as using the language Arabic aptly. The hero was quite sweet and obsessive, the heroine resilient yet obstinate- and this was so NOT the bodice ripper I was dreading. Overall, a well written flowery romance- where the heroine eventually does give in.
Sep 24, Sophie rated it really liked it. The stars I assigend to this book are probably based more on nostalgic childhood memories than on the merits of the book. I first read this book at the tender age of about 8 years old. On a whim, I decided to find a copy and give it a read with my forty-something perspective. I find it a charming story with a fairy-tale quality.

Oct 24, Anuradha rated it liked it. Thoroughly cliched stuff. Love thy abductor. Desert Prince getting away with a spirited English traveler. But she continued to buy books old and new from Heywood Hill, and to recommend French titles his customers might like.
Taking such trouble over a single book order is an endearing and enduring habit. Not long ago, hearing that the Duke of Devonshire was going to New York, Nicky Dunne asked him to act as transatlantic delivery boy for a paperback that had been ordered by Anna Wintour, the editor in chief of Vogue.
The Duke of Devonshire, who just to confuse matters lives in Derbyshire, is not usually so hands-on at the bookshop. Business continued pretty much as usual, with turnover dependably consistent at just over a million pounds a year. Before taking the helm at Heywood Hill, Dunne worked as a political communications consultant.
Not a dickey bird. He appears to have been a quick learner. She had to get out of the relationship. However, Stevi later told the outlet that he was hopeful they would be able to iron out their differences. The couple originally got together after appearing as contestants on the X Factor in and were due to get married in July. They participated in Celebrity Big Brother as a couple last year, and finished in fifth place.
