Publisher's Summary

Sheikh Masoud Khalidizack is terminally bored by palace life. With his elder brother inheriting his father's responsibilities and his younger brother treating life like one big party, he often feels left behind. When a family friend suggests a bet to see which brother will be left unwed at the end of the year, Masoud thinks it is impossible to lose and he's already making plans on what to do with the prize - Muharraq Island.

That all changes with the arrival of headstrong Fleur Summers, a beautiful archaeologist bent on finding the legendary Solomon Diamond. It was once part of the Khalidizack family's heritage, but now it is lost to history. Her reputation depends on finding it and putting it into a museum, but the distractingly handsome Sheikh who hired her certainly isn't helping. In fact, Masoud intends to restore the diamond to its rightful place - in the Khalidizack palace.

Now, they have to overcome their mutual mistrust and simmering attraction to find the artifact that could bring glory to them both. In a race against ruthless rivals that spans continents, finding the prize will bring them together or destroy one of their lives.

    "Fun Adventure & Sweet Romance"

    This audiobook is a short story about an intelligent archeologist working on her Doctoral Thesis and a wealthy Sheikh. It's a pretty fast romance but an enjoyable story.

    The narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life.

    There is adventure, drama, betrayal and romance. Sweet Romance with a HEA and no Cliffhangers.

    "Cute Story"

    The author, Leslie North, did a great job of writing a fairly short romance story that takes place in the middle east. Fleur is such a down-to-earth, young, beautiful lady that isn't all that sophisticated. Masoud is rich, handsome, but not really interested in finding a wife. Fleur brings excitement to his bored life. Nice, wholesome book. The narrator did a good job of distinguishing between the characters. Enjoyed this little romance.

    "Ok"

    This book was narrated by a woman who's voice sounded like a teenager. It was too soft and did not engage me in the story. This was a quick read and it appears that the story was quickly done as well. Perhaps with a different narrator, I would have gotten more out of it. Three bored sons at a party make a bet on who will be the last one to marry. Then one of them has the woman who has sneaked onto their land is given a bath and taken to dinner in the mine. She is scatterbrained and talks throughout the entire meal. This is their love story. Only three plus hours so if you have nothing else to do and want a quick love story filled with a history lesson then listen to this. I got this book via audiobook boom.

    "Really predictable"

    I enjoyed the effort to give a little history to the story. But for me it was just to ridiculously predictable. There lacks a real reason a rich wealthy man would jump into bed with a nobody who he knows nothing about. Add to that the time line?? Instant love and marriage proposal? I get it's a short story but it was for me at least just too much of what everyone else writes again and again. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

    I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.

    "A little adventure with some hot sexy fun"
    What about Rose DeMarco’s performance did you like?

    Good character voices, the male voices were well done and excellent pacing, Rose did a great job of bringing the story to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    That's exactly what I did, a great way to spend an afternoon. I wouldn't mind a second afternoon spent the same way, hopefully the next book is just as good.


    Any additional comments?

    Talk about a speedy romance! The premise of looking for Solomon's diamond and all the related historical information included was really interesting.

    I liked the characters interaction, especially within the Sheikh's family and the story was interesting and engaging.

    Note: This book was provided free by the author/narrator/publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Story
    "Adventurously sweet"
    What made the experience of listening to The Sheikh's Diamond the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the plot of this book. It wasn't over the top innone area over another it was evenly balanced.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that the romance element wasn't the entire book but played out more naturally as the story progressed as a background element.


    What about Rose DeMarco’s performance did you like?

    She gave a great performance, the only thing that was a bit distracting for me was when she would speak as the sheiks she would pause in between each word sometimes, to make them sound slower. I don't know if this was done to make them distinctive or what but it broke the flow of dialogue for me as a listener.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Digging for diamonds but finding love.


    Any additional comments?

    This story was enjoyable because it was full of information and fabled legends and story teller elements as well as romance. I honestly feel the blurb cuts the story short. It is adventurous and while the romance is an element it simmers in the background rather than focuses on it solely. I would recommend this fora quick listen. I received this audiobook for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.

    "A real treasure!"
    What did you like most about The Sheikh's Diamond?

    It's hard to choose I loved the characters, especially Fleur but also really enjoyed listening to the narrator. She did really well at doing all the voices, it was never boring listening to her. Loved it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sheikh's Diamond?

    I've got to say I enjoyed the banter between the brothers and when Fleur meets Massud(?) not sure how to spell his name, thought that was quite a good set up!


    Have you listened to any of Rose DeMarco’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not yet, but want to listen to the whole series!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they go camping ;)


    Any additional comments?

    Perfect audiobook if you like something cheeky, adventurous, fun and you want to come away feeling positive. I want to get the rest of the series, so that is a good sign!
