Kishaz Reading Corner: The Sheikh's Seduction by Emma Darcy

About the Book

Who was seducing whom?

With her family's future happiness in Tareq al-Khaima's all-controlling hands, Sarah Hillyard was persuaded to become the sheikh's traveling companion for a year. She remembered his gentleness toward her as a young girl, but now she suspected Tareq's scheme was a calculated means of getting closer to the beautiful woman she had become—with no promise of commitment on his part.

Tareq claimed to have lost the capacity to love and he was so totally self-contained, so frustratingly untouchable that Sarah surprised herself by wanting to find out how he would react if she turned the tables—and set about seducing him!

Buy the Book

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 3.5 stars

Here's why:

This story is about a man with divided loyalties and a vivacious young, dedicated young woman who values family above all else.

The ruthlessness and calculating behavior of Tareq was a bit off-putting at first until you get more info from his backstory. Sarah drove me nuts because she was a "doormat" and naive to the point of being scary.

I almost put the book down until she had an "omg" moment and the story changed. After that it was all good.

Despite their flaws, the pairing worked well and the ending was satisfactory.

Would I recommend this book? Yes.
