The main 'hero' insists on being honorable and is described as smart. Yet he lies all the time and seams to be more then little dense. The 'heroine' is likable, smart and fiesty but at times without common sense. The story reads well but doesn't have THE spark. The heroine is the only realistic character, others are flat, sketchy, and generally just a bit off. So far I rate the book 3*. But here is the real bummer: Mid way in the book, the reader is plunged into some sort of thriler story, where some girl unrelated to anyone in the story so far, is chased by a guy with a knife, who was hired by her mother's lookalike. Then the story goes back to the original story. And when you finally think it was a fluke, you are assaulted with another chapter about the unrelated character, where she gets a ride to some far place. Then bang! you are back with the sheikh and the PC whiz. I'm guessing the author was trying to introduce the next book with the 3 chapters, but ended up plunging the reader into total chaos.

In the aftermath of Joe Colton's explosive birthday bash, honorary son Sheik Ali El-Etra had his own fires to extinguish. For the brooding heir-to-the-throne had promised to present his betrothed to the people. And whether she liked it or not, his hotshot new consultant was going to be that woman. But the powerful tycoon was in for a rude awakening. Though sorely tempted by Ali's smoldering charm, Faith Martin relished taking her high-handed boss down a peg or two...and wasn't about to help him further his marriage-minded agenda!
One of my favorite Coltons!!!
The Colton's really suck you into their family
