Early Review: The Sheikh's Bought Wife by Sharon Kendrick

Apr 2, 2017

The desert king's outrageous proposal! 
Marry a sheikh in return for a hefty financial reward? Shy researcher Jane Smith would normally have laughed in Zayed Al Zawba's handsome face. Except it's only for six months and the money will rescue her sister who's mired in debt… 

Sheikh Zayed will do anything to inherit Kafalah's neighboring oil-rich lands, even wed plain Jane: he'll never long to consummate a marriage with her! But Zayed hasn't bargained on Jane's frumpy clothes hiding delicious curves…or her quick mind and untouched beauty teasing and tempting him beyond his wildest imaginings!


    The Sheikh's Bought Wife is every plain -Jane's fantasy. Zayed is arrogant and sexy and answers to no one. Jane is uber intelligent and loves all things from Kafalah. Rich, desert sheikh and mousy librarian marry and live happily ever after. Well, not so fast. 
     This story had a strong beginning and ending. I loved the characters and the story-line. As the story progressed I had such conflicting feelings about the story. One minute I was all giddy and the next I was rolling my eyes. Two strong characters who where opinionated and bold. Their banter and chemistry potent. My issues were with the sexual prowess of the characters. One was the experienced lover, who seemed to talk a bit much in detail about what was taking place. I wish there had been extra moaning and less talking on his part. Jane, who seems to be borderline genius, was completely clueless when it came to her body and all things sexual. Not that it's not plausible, but it felt too over done. That being said, I could not put this book down. I do love a great desert romance with a sexy sheikh. 

Note: Kendrick's has a huge array of must read stories.
