Kate Hewitt ☆ 3 reviewFrom the world I loved Elena to bits the author took me on a truly remarkable author took me on a truly remarkable of how one man finds himself willing to fight for what he believes is his and the one woman "who let s him finally see the truth shine out from the revenge darkness that his mind "let s him finally see the truth shine out from the revenge darkness that his mind become I am taking away a message of life has it s way of uiding us on the wrong path but it s in order to find the right one The trick of course is to not miss the right turnoff to take whilst on that wrong path because the road up ahead might not bring along another turnoff to the road where the your calling is waiting for you I highly recommend this read for all fans of a excellent deeply emotional Sheikh romance Kate Hewitt is simply one of the most remarkable author s of all time and with each book her writing just et s better and better55 star review To win the ame all he has to do is see himself through her eyes What a wonderful delightful book by Kate Hewitt Loved it from the first page ueen Elena arrived in Kadar to marry the Sheikh to save two crowns His and hers A marriage of convenience Only one flaw in that plan she was whisked away by another into the desert to stop the marriage because he was the true ruler of Kadar In his eyes Two people had learned not to trust that love was a weakness At a young age they both had been ripped apart emotionally by circumstances Khalil banished and shamed at such a tender age only had one mission to take back what was his The crown of Kadar as their rightful ruler yet started to fall for this young ueen who was strong determined to save her own crown from those within who wanted her The Horse in Celtic Culture gone This is a story of learning to trust rely on each other and how love was a strength teaching each other that support and belief in each other can see one through so much and come out the other side a better person and the future isn t always what you think it is It was an amazing journey Elena finally learned to leto and feel because for so long she had to show no weakness had to be strong couldn t have a life outside of her royal life of duty Can t wait to read the second book Commanded by the Sheikh Captured by the Sheikh by Kate Hewitt is a well written romance around the kidnapping trope The forbidden romance between Khalil and Elena is enjoyable due to the amazing chemistry they share This is one of the few romances where both the hero and heroine are similar in their nature and have so much in common They both are different in their own way but are not polar opposite as it enerally happens in romanceRead More I found this to be a really nice story with engaging characters who worked their way through all of their difficulties and helped each other after a lifetime of loneliness I really like Khalil and Elena and although it took him in particular a long time to ive in to the idea of loving Elena it was an understandable reluctance I disliked the ending not the fact that he discovered he actually had no claim but that we were not Every Boys Dream given an insight into how he and Elena would creat a new life on Thalia which would haveiven him back a Starflight Zero goal and an identity as well the happiness he deserved with Elena and a family I found that really disappointing so haveiven 3 stars instead of Ared for a cold mutually convenient marriage Instead she is carried off into the sands where the virgin ueen soon discovers an unexpected desire for her sinfully sexy captor that leaves her craving. Ues me Bring it onRating 45Recommend YesARC provided by Harleuin via NetGalley reviewed from an e arc provided by NetGalleyThe young ueen Elena of Thallia whose an e arc provided by NetGalleyThe young ueen Elena of Thallia whose in the throne is a precarious one has made a very deliberate engagement with Sheikh Aziz of Kadar Both desperately need the added stability that a judicious marriage will bring to their rule But that s exactly what Aziz s half brother Khalil doesn t want instead of being taken to her fianc Elena finds herself a prisoner in the desert And though she dutifully tries to escape as time oes on she finds herself wanting to less and lessThis has a uieter tone than you might expect from a kidnapped by the sheikh romance although not in a bad way Elena and Khalil have a lot in common along with the shared burden of responsibility towards their people they ve both had lonely lives and suffered major betrayals from people they loved The bond between them rows naturally from their shared experiences and makes them sympathetic especially Elena who is valiant in her efforts to be a The Multi-Orgasmic Man good ueen Tears pricked under her lids and she blinked them back furiously She wasn t a littleirl to cry over a cut knee She was a woman a
woman who d had to prove she possessed the power and strength of a manwho d had to prove she possessed the power and strength of a man four endless stormy years It couldn t end now like thisI enjoyed the first half of this book which has action and danger in Elena s escape efforts and then a bittersweet uality as the attraction between Elena and Khalil rows I didn t like the second half uite as much I was exasperated by how long it took the two of them to see the obvious answer to their mutual problem and then found Khalil s shilly shallying about his feelings to be kind of tiresome But the end oes in an interesting direction nicely setting up Aziz s story I took your bride I ll take your throne Because both are mine by right Those are the words spoken by Sheikh Khalil al Bakir the banishment and shame has turned him into man determined to reclaim the crown of Kadar from his rival He starts by kidnapping his enemy s bride to be She s a means to an end so why he The Great Passage get s all inflamed at the thought of her in anyone else s bed but his own is a mystery he simply does not know how to solve nor does have the time he has a thrown to take over ueen Elena Karras of Thallia is prepared for a cold mutually convenient marriage but instead she s carried off into the desert sand where the virgin ueen soon discovers an unexpected desire for her sinfully delicious captor and leaves her craving for and sheet s it but when the ame ends will Khalil walk away and leave her broken hearted or will he see himself through her eyesThis was a truly beautiful read of how two people learn to fight the battles of life together "I loved the fiery passion that Khalil has but sadly his passion "loved the fiery passion that Khalil has but sadly his passion the throne is overshadowed with the thoughts of revenge and of course this made him the type of hero you can only have luke warm feelings for but it is only for a certain period on the book because as all fans of Harleuin Presents books know there is always something or someone that will turn the person around And that person was Elena beautiful smart and always seeing the side of a person they attempt to hide. Lil's campaign begins by kidnapping his enemy's bride to be She's a means to an end so why is he so inflamed at the thought of her in anyone's bed but his own ueen Elena Karras of Thallia was prep.
