Love

Although married for a while, Rafiq and Chloe have not had your traditional loving relationship. Now Rafiq needs to have an heir, and Chloe bargains with Rafiq to get to know him better while they try for their baby. And their wonderfully romantic story begins. I love this, a little cultural, a little romance, a little controversy and oh so much passion. This is enemies to lovers at it's best. Rafiq is the ultimate hero, with that cool exterior, and warm heart. He is a tough nut to crack, but has a real moral compass and sense of love. Chloe is selfless and loving. All we can do is root for these two to find their happiness, I fell in love with both of them.

Meghan Kelly's narration of this had me from the start. She has a way of storytelling that brings out the characters true selves, and lets us really know them. I love her voices, and with this she had not only great male and female voices, but accents too!

...courageous romance that never wants to let go.

He needs an heir. She craves his love. Can a marriage built on rules and regulations survive the heartache of falling in love? For Rafiq and Chloe marriage does not a happy ending make. Caught in a trap of their own making, neither knows how to give in. When responsibility gives way to lust and lust blossoms into love, will the secrets they keep spell the end of everything they'd started to build? The Sheikh's Baby Bargain was never meant to be a fairytale. Connelly delves deep into the soul to create a not always beautiful, totally unpredictable and beyond unforgettable, second chance romance. Turbulent love and tainted hearts becomes a courageous romance that never wants to let go.

Loved the story of arranged marriage to a Sheik

Narration that Meghan Kelly gives is so fun and interesting. She gives life to all these characters. The way non communication and making assumptions in situations that involve love, well that is a recipe for disaster. Luckily happy endings do exist. Worth listening to by a long shot.

Duty Bound!

This story is very well written and will have you yelling at the chartacters (No, just tell him and it will all work out!) Even in story's that is not how it go's. The storyline had me intrigued from the beginning. It also had me biting my lip in anticipation. It's a very sweet story of love.
The narrator does a fabulous job with the characters and the voices. She will suck you into the telling of the story and make you feel as though you are right their. She has a beautiful voice and does wonderful accents. I definitely recommend this book.

A Delight!

This was an absolute delight to listen to.
I loved the story with all the angst, clever banter, and romance that was taking place between the two main characters whom I couldn't help but grow fond of.
Both of them had their own problems and secrets which they tried to keep from each other and this caused further problems for them until they communicated about them.
I also really enjoyed Meghan Kelly's narration. She always does such great voices and this definitely makes the audio version even more entertaining and a pleasure to listen to.
Great teamwork, ladies!
I requested and listened to the audiobook and my voluntary review above is unbiased

Unwanted marriage, will it have a happy ending?

This is a story of two people who get married due to obligations rather than love. From the beginning, neither one of them wanted this marriage, but as time progress they need to produce an heir, so they get to work on it. Moreover, even though they both afraid of love, while trying to get to know each other they despite themselves fell in love.

Narrator did a great job with different voices and emotions. It was entertaining to listen to this book.

Great Story & Audible Listen🎧 Angsty & Heartfelt!

This is my first novel by Clare Connelly and it will not be my last. I enjoyed her writing style and the storylines and characters she created. They are interesting, realistic and relatable, I was completely engrossed in the story. Chloe and Raffa were married, the marriage was arranged by their fathers, mainly for political reasons. We enter the story at the point where they were married for a year but it was a marriage in name only, with Raffa’s father terminally ill, he is next in line to rule his country and he needs to line up an heir to secure his future and the future of the country, enemies may try to turnover his rule without doing so. Chloe was happy with the distant relationship they had and was not ready to consummate the marriage, but Raffa, the alpha male that he is gave her an ultimatum, so she abided. They may not have married out of love there is a great chemistry between them and they start to look forward to their physical meetings to make an heir. I loved how this story played out, from how both fought the feelings they started to feel for each other. Also liked how he saw that he needed to treat her bettering work on getting to know each other more. He was a hardened man, out on a mission to do his duty for the country, Chloe felt like she was just a means to an heir. Lots of drama and emotions in this story, including family drama and angst. I was impressed my Chloe’s strength to do the right thing for Raffa and the future of his country. I was vey happy with the way things turned out for them in the end. Clare Connelly thank you for this great story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Meghan Kelly is a fantastic narrator and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. She did an amazing job with the accents, I loved her portrayal of the Sheikh, gave Raffe a voice of not only an alpha male but one of a determined ruler. Also loved her take on Chloe, she allowed you to hear her strength. Great job on all other characters including Amit, the 12 year old son. Meghan Kelly is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to, thank you for another great listen🎧

Heartfelt!

OMG! If this story doesn’t pull on your heartstrings, you simply don’t have a heart! Fantastic from the very start and a twist thrown in. Meghan Kelly is a masterful narrator! You know exactly who each character is. Male or female. Please don’t pass this one up. I would love to be able to give it more stars!

A look at royalty

Dynamic story involving matters of the heart and family dynamics that had a lovely ending and left me smiling. The narrator did mens voices as well as womens and l must admit l checked to see if there was indeed a second narrator doing the mens voices.
No there is only her, l dont know how she does it.

Chloe and Rafiq

What a wonderful story. Clare Connolly is a fantastic author. I particularly enjoyed the fact that Audible was able to be used for this book. Chloe was brave and honourable and Rafiq played the part of a proud and fierce sheikh. Magical. The narration by Meghan Kelly was first class
