Marguerite Kaye’s red-hot romantic tales transport readers to a time where love and passion reign supreme. Lady Celia Cleveden is the picture of pragmatism and sensible behavior, having no interest in uncouth louts or brutish rakes. That is, until the wild prince Ramiz of A’Qadiz rescues her amidst the shifting desert sands. Ramiz offers Celia a place in his harem - a proposal the cultured lady would normally refuse. But with their torrid nights burning hotter than the desert’s midday sun, Celia feels compelled to at least consider the sheikh’s enticing offer.
What made the experience of listening to Innocent in the Sheikh's Harem the most enjoyable?
I thought this was well read. I liked that Celia,the heroine, did not sound like a high school girl which seems to be the norm in historical romances in most cases unless they are described with a smokey or heavier voice. Julia Franklin had a good variety of voices for the characters and made it easy to listen and recognize each of the characters. Prince Ramiz had a very believable voice for his character's description.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Innocent in the Sheikh's Harem?
I thought a memorable moment was the first time she sees Ramiz from a distance when she and her husband arrive in port to begin their journey to see him at his palace. He is just as she pictured a Prince of the Desert from reading Arabian Nights. Simple scene but worked well. She behaved like someone ready to step forward and face her future no matter what it was to bring. The good along with the bad.
Which scene was your favorite?
The love scene in the desert tent on the way to meet with the tribes. It is passionate and tender. Well written. You can almost feel the heat rise from the page as they come together even though they know a future together is almost unthinkable. They both have strong passion and it shows here.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Desert passion and destiny cannot be denied.
Any additional comments?
Marguerite Kaye is a very good author. This whole series is good. A light and passionate romp in the desert for Celia and her sisters.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I loved this story and it pulled me in so I would recommend this to a friend.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved that both leads were strong people. This is something you don't always find in romance stories. Also they were flushed out and not just shells. You couldn't simply step into one of them but you could close your eyes and see it.
How could the performance have been better?
The voice of the narrator sounded old to me. That is not what I want to listen to when I am listening to a romance. I understand that it was a regency but even those I don't want them to sound old. I just sounds wrong to me.
If you could rename Innocent in the Sheikh's Harem, what would you call it?
I don't have a new name for it. I was always bad a naming stories, so I read the description and go from there. I don't put any stock in titles.
Any additional comments?
As an over all I liked the book. I would read this again and again. I would recommend this again and again. The story was good and you could see the journey of self.
