Eighteen years ago, Chris Jacobs walked out of the forest, the lone survivor of a school bus load of children who’d vanished two years before. His memory was gone, his body beaten and emaciated.

Constant fear of being found by his kidnapper has driven Chris into hiding. The only lead Michael has is Chris’s sister, Jamie. As they race to find Chris, Michael and Jamie somehow find each other among the decades of wreckage. But locating Chris may not be so easy. Now grown, his scars go far deeper than skin.

Following a recent merger, American executive assistant Marian is sent overseas to meet with her company’s new Arab business partner. But once Marian sees who she’ll be working with—the handsome Sheikh Omar Almasi—she’s instantly wary of his good looks and brooding demeanor. When circumstances force her to step into her boss’ shoes, Marian is more than ready to prove she should be taken seriously…even if it means working side by side with the surly, sexy sheikh.

Two years after losing his wife to cancer, Omar is more driven than ever in his family’s oil business. He opposed the merger with the US tech firm, and now that it’s done, he refuses to compromise himself for corporate Americans. But Omar is caught off guard when he meets beautiful, business-savvy Marian. The woman drives him wild with her stubborn determination and her distracting allure. He’s never had to work so closely with someone so…feminine, and the more time they spend together, the more he has to fight his impulses.
Soon their attraction is undeniable, but with the wound of his wife’s death still not healed, Omar may never be ready to move on…unless Marian can show him how to love again.

Book Review: A Stardance Summer by Emily March – An Eternity Springs Romance Novel With Lots Of Heart
Book Detail: Title: A Stardance Summer Author: Emily March Publisher: St. Martins Press Publishing Date: June 27th, 2017 Genre: Romance I received an ARC copy of this book in return for an honest review My Review: Whenever I want to read something heartwarming, and genuinely […]
I know, I am a little late in getting around to reviewing The Sheikh’s Christmas Baby, but just because it was Christmas themed, it was still a pretty hot novel. Another part of the Shadid Sheikhs Series Book series by Leslie North, this book as easy to read, entertaining and steamy as the rest of the novels.
I am glad that Leslie decided to give all brothers their own book, and I love how she closed it. Of course, I will not spoil it for you, but I do have to say, that unlike in some other series I have read, this one is tied up all sweetly with a nice Christmas bow.
Related Reviews: Her Ruthless Russian by Leslie North
Well developed characters, and a plot that was fast-paced, sweet, and romantic, fitting in well with the series, while also able to be read as a stand-alone book. I like Leslie North, and this was her at her best.
This second-chance novel reunites two people who should have never been separated and are a perfect fit. But because of misconceptions, and outside influences (what is it always with other people meddling in affairs they don’t belong in – that is not just in novels but happens too often in real life. You would think people would learn? No? – Well, it makes a great suspenseful read, but not such a good experience) the two have to find each other again, after being apart.Do you love second-chance romance novels?

Of course, that makes it hard to trust one another, and Leslie managed to explore that very well, without being melodramatic. And when you add financial problems to the mix, there are all kinds of emotions involved, which again, the Author fleshed out in details, making this an emotional, relatable read.
Oh, and dogs are involved. As a dog lover (and owner of two rescue pups), that is always a plus point in my mind.
A great end to a very good series.
5 out of 5 stars
