What can you say about a book where the hero loves and believes in his true love almost from the first moment? Olivia Gates takes her lovers, Shaheen and Johara, and places their romance in a situation where things like a sense of duty and external influences threaten to tear them apart. In a genre where misunderstanding and angst between the protagonists is the usual way to drive the conflict this book came as a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of tension and anxiety but the relationship between Hero and Heroine remained a shining light throughout. Olivia writes great prose and brings out emotions that engage and sex scenes that sizzle. I listened to this book on audio on my kindle while driving and became so involved I continued to listen once I arrived home against my usual practice.
A nice little romance with believable characters. Ms Gordon always delivers. Easy to listen to.
Clear and wel read
It was a nice story with just a good amount of angst.
The hero. Sometimes the heroine sounded a little too whiny.
When the hero overcame his adversity.
Excellent story and well read. My first from Audio and very well worth it.
The hero and heroine were very appealing
This is my first audibook of this type. As an Australian listening to a book by an English author I found the American accent strange at first but she did very well with the arabian feel of the language.
It was very enjoyable. Good humour in places and moving as well.
My first time listening to romantic scenes and found some words a little jarring but only because I wasn't expecting them.
