    This was one of the funniest books I ve read I don t know if it was intended to be that way, but I laughed like crazy reading the preposterous things that came out of the hero s mouth The man was deranged and proud of it, and I couldn t have been happier.The story is fairly simple Prince Khalil Khan of El Bahar is engaged, against his will, to beautiful but slutty Amber He wants out of the engagement, but he can t explain why without causing some unwanted damage in the political stability of his country See, Amber s father is El Bahar s Prime Minister and he would be so ashamed if he found out about her daughter s whoring ways that he would be forced to resign Down on her luck Dora Nelson falls on Khalil s hands like the ultimate solution to his problem, and he doesn t hesitate to lie, seduce her and convince her to marry him After all, he s Prince Khalil of Khan Naturally, his lies surface soon enough and the stage is set for a rocky and tumultuous marriage Let the fun begin This story was full of clich s, including a Big Misunderstanding caused by the jealous ex fianc e, but it all worked out due to SM s writing Khalil was an outrageous hero, but I loved him I couldn t take him seriously, of course If I did, I d have to kill him, LOL Here are some of his best lines I am Prince Khalil Khan of El Bahar You will not question my word I am Prince Khalil Khan and I do not dishonor women I am Prince Khalil Khan of El Bahar, and I do not woo women We are going riding I am wooing you You will find the ride very romantic and notice that I am an amusing companion Then, when we return, you ll be overcome, and we ll make love You are my wife You will be most impressed, and you will find yourself falling hopelessly in love with me Of course I wasn t honored by your agreeing to marry me Look at the life that you had before we met So small and pitiful You were nothing, and I gave you the world I am Prince Khalil Khan I am Khalil Khan, prince of El Bahar, and I will not be dictated to by a woman Accept what we have between us, and be grateful ROFLMAO Who could resist such a charmer No wonder Dora fell in love with him.

    A sweet delightful romance.I m not a sheikh romance fan but this one seemed highly rated for all the right reasons It has that typically improbable HP storyline as well as a vintage y feel to it, which is part of the charm.The H tricks the h into marriage with flowery and misleading words By the time she catches onto him, an exceptionally vampish ow completes her wedded woes I loved Khalil despite or maybe because of his remarkable obstinacy and delusions of snobbish self importance He just couldn t see beyond his title and privilege And it drove the h crazy every time he countered her arguments with I m Khalil Khan, the prince of El Baharia Translated to I do not need to explain change himself And so she takes upon herself to teach him a lesson or two in backing down But it s an impasse, as he stays incorrigible to her unbending.Leaving out his superciliousness and incredibly insensitive statements like the h had actually moved up by marrying him, he was actually oddly sweet, caring and deferential towards her.Otherwise it s a story of a plump Jane winning her Prince mostly Not so Charming with her qualities rather than looks And that s what pulls it down at times because of the recurring feel that his settling for her was expedient than passion or even love of the HP kind.But I m glad I read this fresh and interesting take on the battle of wills between the sexes.

    I absolutely loved this book, especially for the tongue and cheek humor You usually don t find that too often, nor so beautifully executed as Susan Mallery did here At the same time, I found that there were some genuinely difficult and painful moments for the heroine that created all that delicious tension I have come to love in these category romances Finally, I loved the heroine She was downtrodden, out of luck, desperately, unhappily in love with a man that didn t value or understand her, but she rose to every occasion with such class.A very fun read. You just can t take the hero too seriously when he starts with his I m Prince Kahlil moments Yet again, maybe I should try to steal a page out of his book and try that at home tonight I wonder if it will work

    The prince of El Bahar, Khalil Khan tricks jilted bride Nora into marrying him so he can save himself from an arranged marriage Marriage of convenience turns into a marriage of love Hero s bitchy ex fiance stirs up trouble and Nora is devastated when she finds out the true reasons Khalil proposed I loved this book It was angsty, emotional and super romantic Heroine is sweet and virginal but also feisty Hero made me laugh He was so arrogant, so full of himself, a real Sheikh I recently discovered this author and I am impressed

    Well. I was expecting something wham bam with its angst, especially when the storyline s very promising But, no Khalil s expression is so flat and I don t like it I want The heroine s easy forgiveness is kind of getting on my nerves Again, I was expecting resistant and begging from Hero.Good, but not my favorite.

    I loved this book I loved that the heroine was considered dumpy and overweight but the hero was thoroughly attracted to her I liked the seduction and whisked away aspects too The hero not was upfront about his motives but it turned out pretty well Recommended if you like sheikh books.

    This was super awesome From well written characters, to smokin sex scenes and a dash of humor, this book captivated me from start to end Dora runs away from an unfaithful fianc e and lands up working for Khalil Khalil, the prince of al Bahar I cracked up every time he introduced his full title decides to use her to escape an arranged marriage via lies.What follows is a super passionate love story Great wedding night scene The only thing I wished that would have happened was that Dora had confidence in herself and didn t believe the lies that Amber told her, mistrusting Khalil.Safe view spoiler when the heroine meets the hero the first night, he has company that evening But after that he remains faithful to the heroine hide spoiler

    This is the story of Doormat Dora who married a static hero I think what gets me is that this book was published in 2004 according to , but given the stereotypical blahness of the male female dynamics, I d have thought it had been published in the 80s I d be able to give the author a bit leniency if it had, as societal views change and there s generally a formulaic pattern for writing the Silhouette type novels Dora isn t really a kidnapped bride I m sort of still trying to figure out how that title came to be It s sort of like a flashy headline a gossip rag might use to catch your attention Dora is a jilted fiancee who was a few weeks away from her wedding with a guy who was willing to marry her for his own personal reasons aka keeping his job and not willing to keep his dick in his pants and his hands out from under other women s skirts Dora is abandoned by him at a Kansas airport as he takes off with her luggage and purse after she throws a shit fit rightly so about his wandering hands Real gem of a guy.Sadly, she doesn t exactly pick another winner She stumbles over to Kahlil and lucks out on a ride away from nowhere and a 2 week job which will net her some needed cash before she goes job hunting the ass she was engaged to also happened to be her boss view spoiler Somewhere along the way we learn the Prince has his hands tied with a fortune hunting slut he s been betrothed to, and Dora s ex is surprised she s canceling their wedding and is demanding to know where she is The Prince, despite being a Prince and an asshole, finds it really hard to tell his father that the woman he s supposed to marry is rolling from one bed to another while she s gallivanting around the world Apparently her father some high up official and family friend would lose his job if it was learned that his daughter isn t pure as the driven snow I guess that s a step up from having her stoned to death but a reality check is probably needed here Sure the guy could lose his job, but maybe the Slutty Bitch should be a little concerned she ll lose her main source of income and be forced into a marriage with some sort of controlling asshole It s not like they come from a kingdom that s amazingly forward thinking on women s rights They ve got the basics, but they still require Dora to walk around with a chaperon and dress in clothing that covers her from neck to wrist and ankle So it really does beg the question as to why this Slutty Bitch is running around by herself in the States and Europe when she s unwed Hmmmplot hole much Anyway, boom, the Prince decides that he can solve his dilemma by marrying Dora He seduces her, marries her and basically lies to her about feeling any attraction he later on admits this to her face so basically he didn t even like her just thought of her as an efficient secretary and a means to an end but believes that eventually he ll feel a fondness for her Meanwhile, he refuses to tell her anything so Slutty Bitch can waltz in from time to time and spread some pretty little lies that make Dora realize that she might have just married someone worse than her first Fiance Oops.But Dora isn t going to stand for that Nope Dora is going to be strong She s going to deny him her bodyuntil yeah nope, that didn t work Okay, so now she s going to deny him the right to sleep in the same room together He ll have to trek down to her room and seduce her nightly in order to get any sex out of this relationship Way to stand strong Dora Way to stand strong It gets worse She asks him to tell her the truth, to apologize for using her so that they can begin again to build their relationship on a stronger foundation She s willing to try and start over despite learning he used the hell out of her and doesn t love her Instead, the Prince continues to blame her for all the strife She needs to give in, she needs to admit she loves him, she needs to get over what happened Seriously, she was nothing he actually tells her this and now he s made her a Princess She was worthless, and now he s given her power She should be grateful to him He s Prince Khalil Khan In fact, he uses those words a lot I m Prince Khalil Khan so I should get what I want.There are no strong females in the book In fact, we re introduced to three main females and they all suck We have Amber the Slutty Bitch who likes to tear other women down, somehow has a lot power than a Princess does, and is weirdly obsessed with becoming a Princess We also have Fatima who, my god, could have been an amazing strong female character She s set up as this willful woman, the grandmother to the Prince, the Queen She s full of advice and intelligenceuntil you realize that her advice is basically along the lines of he won t bend for you, you need to learn to bend for him In other words I have no idea what the strife is between you and my grandson or why you re hurt, but your female and we need to pick and choose our battles but really by that I mean we need to be sneaky and underhanded to get our way but mostly we need to give our guys what they want and that s sex so screw his brains out and then ask for that pretty thing you want She s a product of her time, sure, but she hasn t grown out of that time Her advice is antiquated and should have been regarded by Dora as something backwards and unrealistic Instead, we have our final female character Dora Doormat Dora who, after all the time spent trying to get one simple bloody apology and living through all the stupid arrogant comments and hurtful you were nothings from the guy she for some odd and not full understandable reason loves, goes to his room and basically tells him she ll cut off his dick if he cheats because she loves him Yep She basically says screw that whole my heart would be broken and I would be utterly shattered and changed to the core of my being feeling I had I m going to ignore the one simply bloody thing I should have gotten along with wooing and groveling and maybe even some bloody flowers, and tell him he can walk all over me whenever he wants because let s get real here, the Prince never changes his tune He never apologizes, he never bends He spends most of his time belittling her legitimate want of an apology and accepting all of her no s as challengeswhen he isn t uttering the asinine I m a Prince line He isn t going to change He didn t learn anything and Dora basically acted like an abused woman and rationalized all of his actions so that she could follow Fatima s advice and go give him what he wanted The whole knife threat thing falls short and comes off as a desperate ploy of the author to make her female character seem stronger in this moment than she actually is Seriously, like that bit of silliness is going to counter the moment before it when she actually had an oh poor Prince he had to walk down to my room every night, he s doing his best to accommodate me thought Yeah, because he s too lazy to use his hand and you re a convenience as well as a challenge He s not poor Prince who has to walk down the long hallway to screw me, he s the asshole who couldn t utter an apology and you couldn t deny him anything than sleeping in his bed because that apology was the line you drew in your head as a point that couldn t be crossed or you d lose some vital piece of your soul So much for that line eh Dora Good luck next time he does something that tears you apart hide spoiler
