I hope you guys had a wonderful and romantic Valentine’s Day. I spent my evening reading some steamy romances, one of which I wanted to share with you today.
I am so glad I have not given up on Leslie North, after the last series. With The Sheikh’s Forced Bride she is back to her best self, writing a strong romance novel, that has everything you want for a quick read.
I love both main characters, Khalid and Casey are headstrong people from different background, who still have a lot to learn about life, and about themselves. They empower each other in an unexpected way, even if their connection is first a connection of convenience.
What I also really enjoyed are the minor characters, where I can see more stories emerging shortly. Of course, this will happen, as it is the first book in Leslie’s new series, and I am looking forward to seeing what each of them will have to deal with.
I think this is a wonderful Valentine’s day read, perfect to cuddle up on the couch with a glass of wine, and a couple of candles.
5 out of 5 stars!

Sheikh Khalid Al-Qasimi’s playboy ways have finally caught up with him. After creating a scandal during a diplomatic visit to America, Khalid is given a choice by his father—marry or face banishment. Rather than lose his family, Khalid bows to his father’s wishes but an outspoken American interrupts Khalid’s would-be wedding. Now Khalid has a new plan that might please his father, secure his inheritance and leave Khalid still able to go on with his life …he’ll take the beautiful American as his bride—and then his father will hate her so much he’ll beg Khalid not to get married after all.
Journalist Casey Connolly has never been afraid to share her opinions. While researching an article on arranged marriages, she lands in trouble when she crashes a royal wedding to get a quote from the attending American guests.. The sexy groom offers to set her free if she’ll step into the role of his fiancée—just for a short time. Seeing a chance to get the scoop she needs, Casey agrees.
Soon there’s no denying the chemistry they share. But Casey’s boss is pushing her to complete her piece and head back to the States, while Khalid’s father is still pushing for a hasty wedding. Will this pseudo-romance become the real thing or buckle under all the pressure being put on these two?
