Kishaz Reading Corner: The Sheik and the Bought Bride by Susan Mallery

About the Book

It was bad enough being hauled out of bed by palace guards. Now Victoria McCallan has just offered to pay off her father's gambling debts--with herself as the prize! So the palace secretary was shocked when sexy Prince Kateb made her a counteroffer....

When Kateb whisked Victoria off to the desert to be his mistress for six months, the widowed ruler had no intention of falling in love. But the outspoken Texas transplant was soon tempting him to change his royal ways. Duty decreed the El Deharia sheik should wed a proper mate, but Kateb's heart was telling him something else: to claim Victoria as his woman--now and forever.

Buy the Book

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 4 stars

Here's why:

Let's hear it for strong women. Victoria had a really messed up background but it didn't stop her from blazing a trail so bright it hurt to see it.

Kateb was an interesting mix of honor and stubbornness as well as a man afraid to open his heart, especially because of the tragedies of his past.

The back and forth banter, sexual tension, and clash of traditions vs present political changes made for a nice read.

Would I recommend this book? Yes. I'd love to read a continuation story about these two.
