Publisher's Summary

Sheikh Khalid Al-Qasimi's playboy ways have finally caught up with him. After creating a scandal during a diplomatic visit to America, Khalid is given a choice by his father - marry or face banishment. Rather than lose his family, Khalid bows to his father's wishes but an outspoken American interrupts Khalid's would-be wedding. Now Khalid has a new plan that might please his father, secure his inheritance and leave Khalid still able to go on with his life...he'll take the beautiful American as his bride - and then his father will hate her so much he'll beg Khalid not to get married after all. Journalist Casey Connolly has never been afraid to share her opinions. While researching an article on arranged marriages, she lands in trouble when she crashes a royal wedding to get a quote from the attending American guests. The sexy groom offers to set her free if she'll step into the role of his fiancée - just for a short time. Seeing a chance to get the scoop she needs, Casey agrees. Soon there's no denying the chemistry they share. But Casey's boss is pushing her to complete her piece and head back to the States, while Khalid's father is still pushing for a hasty wedding. Will this pseudo-romance become the real thing or buckle under all the pressure being put on these two?

    Story
    "Great start to a fun romantic series!"

    Stories about leaders always intrigue me. The brooding handsome man, the strong willed woman who gives him a hard time is the general theme. Leslie North uses this idea, but expands on it so you get lost in the story. The first book in this series, Khalid, first in line to be Sultan is getting married...to a woman his father picked. Casey, an American reporter, is doing an article about arranged marriages. The fun now begins! This couple from the start has high intensity and scorching chemistry. How they finally get it together is complete entertainment. Leslie North has a way of giving us well developed characters in a short period of time, enough to have us looking to the next I the series. Khalid's brothers are waiting in the wings, and I am anxiously waiting for the next audio!

    The choice of Nichals Thurkettle to narrate this book is perfect. He has the rough, raspy voice with that sound of high class royalty. Great choice.

    Story
    "Nice Romance"

    I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The story is a nice listen with an HEA that is expected. The interactions between the characters were to be expected. The story was well written and narrated. But each scene made me think I have heard this before in another book. I have listened to many of this author's stories and enjoyed them. Ths was another one that was easy to listen to.

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

    Story
    "Where humor meets serious"

    This story is interesting in itself but I also really liked how it dealt with the topic for forced marriage and the importance of stopping forced marriage. Although this is a very serious topic it does not make the story heavy or sad.

    Casey is delightful and funny, Khalid is a little self-centered and blind to emotions, they interact in a really interesting way and the book is heavily centered on the two of them.

    Several parts of the story made me laugh and I enjoyed listening to it.

    Nicholas' character voices were great and the overall delivery was well done. It flowed nicely and suited the story.

    This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

    ".Review."

    I really loved this story, it must have been such a cultural shock for Khalid and his father to have to deal with an American woman. They are so different to their own submissive and compliant females. This made for a really good story with lots of fireworks and plenty of fun. Leslie North writes such wonderful romantic books and I can't get enough of them. She has a magic touch.
