This is a fierce and tender story and much bigger than the romance. Shakira is the lost princess, found by the hero, Sharif, in a refugee camp and she has been pretending to be a boy in order to protect herself. Anyone who watches TV must have some visual in their minds of a refugee camp - the pain, squalor, the look of desolation in the eyes of the people in the camps. Shakira depends on Sharif in order to make through the transition of refugee to princess and thankfully the author does not have the heroine forget where she came from. That's why this book is larger than any regular romance I've read before. Shakira and Sharif work to help the refugees left behind in the camp. Another thing that Sellars did was divide the book up in section and introduced each with a dream by the heroine. Very satisfying and highly recommended.
The instructions were simple: seek out & return home wiht the longlost princess of Bagestan now that her family had regained control of the throne. But when he found her, Sheikh Shariff fell hard & fast for princess shakira's sultry smile & mystrious aura. She was everything he never thought he'd wanted in a wife, and yet her fiery nature promised a lifetime of passion. He knew he needed to convince Shakira of the importance of fulfilling her duty to both family & country but bringing her back wasn't nearly as tempting as keeping her all for himself.
Powerful sheikhs born to rule and destined to find their princess brides.
