Rated 4 out of 5 by from The sweetest Sheikh story of them all I felt a lot of sympathy for both characters, seeing that they both Felicity and Zakir had disturbed childhoods and disappointing parents in common amongst other things. Each is fiercely loyal to those under their care, equally concerned about their future and well being in spite of being on polar opposites of each other. Zakir is the epitome of control and Felicity the embodiment of provocation. But the way they balance each other out is quite amusing and warms the heart at the same time. Of all the Sheikh stories I found this one to be the sweetest of them all. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this sheikh story! There's nothing like a sexy sheikh book to throw you into the fantasy world of the devilishly handsome leader of a country who has kidnapped you and plans to make you his bride. That's the case here with Jackie's third Sheikh story (all standalone), telling the story of Zakir and Felicity. He mistakenly kidnaps her thinking the car she is in contains the bride to be of a neighbouring sheikh, a woman who understands the politics and needs of a country and can be a stabilizing influence for his people. Following a traditional custom, she is to be his bride prize. Instead he gets tech wiz Felicity who's there to present her new software that will radically improve the lives of the people in the desert country, and never imagines she'd be taken by a neighbouring sheikh to his home and forced into a marriage she would never agree to. He holds her life or death in his hands - but oh, those hands! Suddenly feeling an intense sexual attraction towards her kidnapper, Felicity still intends to bargain for her freedom but resistance might be futile... I really enjoyed this one, in particular because both characters were very appealing. Zakir is the consummate leader - taking over the kingdom due to tragic circumstances and needing to secure a bride to stabilize the factions in his country who would oppose his rule. Emotion isn't part of his decisions, just cold hard reality. He needs an heir, and he needs a woman to provide that for him. He doesn't count on his feelings for Felicity being so strong right from the first time she defies him, but the more she fights back, the more intrigued he is by her. Felicity is a strong and feisty woman, who isn't going to take this whole fiasco lying down. She has a company and people who depend on her, and being thrown back into the middle ages with this handsome but infuriating man is not something she every imagined would happen to her. At the same time though, a part of her is thrilled when she's around him, not only lighting her up sexually but also knowing that he wants her fills a space in her heart that she'd long ago decided she didn't need. It's a rocky ride for sure, and their sexual compatibility isn't going to be enough to build a future on. Of course eventually Zakir is going to let her go (because underneath it all, he's still a good guy) and Felicity is going to have to decide if that's really what she wants after all. Lots of fun with this one, a great sexy read. 4.5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Bride Prize Felicity, geek, has arrived in Al-Harahan on business never did she think she would be kidnapped by Zakir, the ruling sheikh. He needs to find a bride, a bride prize, that he does not love. Felicity is told that she can not resist, she fights all the way until their chemistry takes over. When she opens her heart, can Zakir open his heart for her. This book was a page turner from the very beginning. Loved how they both had broken pasts that needed to be healed. Both very strong people. I received this book from netgalley for an honest review.
