Nadene's Satin Sheet Romance Review of A Bride for the Sheikh

PAGES: 114

When Sheikh Rashid is told by his father, the sultan, that he must marry the scheming daughter of his financial adviser, Chrystal Longhorn, the sheikh refuses. The sultan finally agrees to let his son choose his own bride, but on two conditions: she must be a foreigner, to prevent intermarriage with a local family, and she must be presented to the sultan as the sheikh's bride in just two weeks' time. 

That evening Sheikh Rashid meets Angelina Smith, a beautiful young woman from England. The sheikh is immediately besotted with her. The attraction is mutual, but Angelina has just accepted a place at an exclusive law school in London. Will she throw away her hard-earned career dreams to become a Middle Eastern wife? 

Being the royal wife of a billionaire sheikh is exactly what Chrystal Longhorn wants. What lengths will she go to in order to keep Sheikh Rashid and make sure he marries her and not Angelina? 

Sheikh Rashid has only two weeks to persuade Angelina to marry him, or face a loveless marriage with Chrystal. 

The clock is ticking...


Rashid is in a quandary.  His father had arranged a marriage for him with Chrystal Longhorn whom he detested. Chrystal is a selfish and self-centered person who also happened to be a gold digger. She was willing to go to any lengths to get what she wanted.  Rashid was able to negotiate an agreement with his father which would allow him to choose his own wife.  This agreement, however came with conditions. He had to present the person he chose as his bride to his father within two weeks and she had to be a foreigner. As fate would have it Rashid met Angelina at a party his father was hosting.  The chemistry between these two was evident from their initial meeting and it was at this point that Rashid knew he had found his soul mate.  What follows is a story of adventure that sees Rashid wooing and trying to convince Angelina that they were meant to be together.

I found this title to be a sweet, funny and romantic read which had me hooked from the very first line. This is my second experience with this author's work and she did not disappoint.I thought the characters were well developed.  I was immediately drawn to the main characters, however my favourite character is Rashid's cousin Hammad.  He was quite funny and very entertaining.  Ms. Lane's writing style was quite descriptive which gave the story a very realistic feeling. I totally enjoyed every moment reading this title and I am looking forward to more of this author's work.

If you are looking for a sweet, funny and romantic read, then look no further. A Bride for the Sheikh has it all and more.
