Rince Clare is intent on not falling for his seductive charm but when he asks her to design a mansion he presents her with an offer that she can’t refuse Once she finds herself alone with him. Reviewed by JenBook provided by the author for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookI had been eying this book for a while now The title itself brings to mind the Harleuin Presents line which always features people from far off lands like Arabian Sheikhs I’d just finished reading Ms Lane’s book Her Latin Lover which wasn’t bad just a little lackluster So I figured I’d better give her another try by reading The Royal Sheikh And I wasn’t disappointedThe book is far from perfect I found Clare to be overly emotional for my tastes I kept wanting to reach into my Kindle and shake some sense into her But at the same time given the whirlwind romance and exotic high profile world she landed herself in I believe that your average woman would likely be just as emotionalAnd then there’s Rafi He’s the image of the rich handsome playboy prince that every girl dreams to meet and fall in love with It was interesting to watch Rafi not so much fight his feelings but rather hide them and then stumble along as he screws up his relationship with Clare At times I wanted to smack him as well when his domineering stereotypical Arab male side made an appearance But he made up for it in the end so all was forgivenThe plot wasn’t uniue but it had enough twists and turns to make it enjoyable I’d like to see Ms Lane work on less telling and showing meaning conversation in future books as sometimes it felt we spent too much time in the character’s heads and not enough time actually developing them and their relationship And a few times she veered into random peoples heads which was unnecessary But overall this was a good read and I’d recommend to those who do enjoy the Harleuin Presents books

About the Author: Katheryn Lane

I’m a wife teacher author and mother of two boisterous boys so most of my days are taken up with finding lost school shoes getting stuck in traffic and wondering why I always join the ueue that doesn’t move in the supermarket However I try to forget these daily problems and the fact that I burnt the toast again this morning by losing myself in a good book and writing novels that give read

    Just occasionally it’s good for an older man like me to get away from the blood and musket adventure or crime thriller that would be my preferred genre and settle down to read a good old fashioned romance and that’s exactly what I found in this book I read this novel from beginning to end which says a lot for it because all too often recently I have found the “Romance” genre to have been hijacked by being unnecessarily descriptive of bedroom intimacy which uite frankly turns me off So if you like a straight forward romance this is a great book but it is not steamy It’s a good old fashioned romance where girl meets boy but boy isn’t all that he seems What I really enjoyed was the way that the writer keeps the story moving Even though I was not burdened with endless character descriptions I am left with the feeling that I know the main characters personally Now that’s the sort of achievement I like in a novel I enjoyed reading this book but I didn’t uite love it For me it belongs somewhere between 4 and 5 stars on the scale

    A very high 395 STARS When I was reading this book I kept thinking to my self this could be a 3 stars read but I changed my mind I've been reading romance novels for a very long time with such brands as Lovesweft Mills and Boons and Harleuin Of course my style has progress since then but I do still read them now and then While reading The Royal Sheikh I had to take a step back from what I do like and realize the I read this book was reminiscent of a classical romantic read to the brands mention above which isn't a bad thingClare is an aspiring architect and lives a pretty simple life until a chance meeting with Sheikh Rafi Al Kahil an Arabian prince who is  known as the Playboy Prince Clare isn't aware Rafi is a Sheikh until their second encounter When Clare mentions to Rafi she wants to become an architect Rafi uses that opportunity to get closer to Clare by hiring her firm to build his dream home in the desert At some point Clare over hears one of Rafi conversations  about her and she immediately starts turning down his advances  After both Rafi and Clare starts to have a blossoming relationship again a secret engagement with Azizah a Arabian princess threatens their relationship againThis read wasn't bad I did like their first encounter when they first met I thought it was very romantic and sweet Clare's friend Louise had me smiling as well during the first encounter of Rafi and Clare In my opinion this read is very light If you feel in the mood for something romantic nothing hardcore then this could be your readStoryline GOODEnjoyment FAIRLIKE us here   wwwFacebookcomromancenoveljunkies on FB Also join us on our FB group Romance Novel Junkies 550 members We are also on goodreads

    I have to admit my idea of romance novels stems from some pretty racy items I read in high school that I have sworn myself off I wasn't sure what to expect when a hardworking and passionate architect met a charming Middle Eastern prince but I was very pleasantly surprised I found myself thinking about this book when I wasn't reading it and looked forward to turning on my Kindle to read some It is easy to discern that Lane is connected to the characters and the setting; her plot moves along effortlessly and carries the reader throughout this romantic journey The characters in this story could be people you know; the Sheikh is portrayed as a regular person even against the rich jewel studded backdrop of his home country BahirThere are a few spelling issues that tripped me up a bit in my reading but the story made this a little forgivable This is a sweet love story pure and simple with some unexpected but very believable twists In fact this book may leave some readers wondering if perhaps one day something similar may happen to them I recommend this book to you if you are looking for something light but captivating a uick read that I can easily picture as a made for TV film

    Thank you Katheryn Lane for the exotic adventure of Clare and Prince Rafi of Bahir Every girl dreams of finding their Prince Charming Clare found hers purely by accident those are the best kind The setup for this story is believable Rafi is royalty and he's hounded by the press but you'll soon discover in Ms Lane's story that despite his wealth and notoriety he possesses the heart of a common man who's looking for 'the real thing' He finds it in Clare McKay This tale is filled with conflict some from Rafi and Clare being from two different worlds but also the realistic conflict of learning to trust and how easy it is to believe the worst Ms Lane expertly played the sexual tension between these two characters at the risk of revealing too much I'll leave it at that You'll just have to read it to discover what I'm talking about Their passion was not limited to just physical attraction I loved how the author gave them the passion for art The details of London and Bahir made me want to be there to experience them firsthand This story is sweet heartwarming yet sexy You're in for a treat

    Author Katheryn LanePublished by KLAge Recommended AdultReviewed By Arlena DeanBook Blog For GMTARating 4ReviewThe Royal Sheikh by Katheryn Lane was a real good romantic read for me How this author was able to get this architect Clare and 'Middle Eastern Prince'Rafi together was definitely a work of art This prince had been known simply as a 'Playboy Prince'but was this all true? The Royal sheikh was a light read that turned out to be very sweet and romantic but not necessarily 'steamy' I really did like the way Ms Lane kept the story moving forward The characters especially Clare's friend Louise was just that a true friend Now this is where I will say to find out all you must pick up this good read to find out just what is going on in the enchanting romance with this prince If you are looking for a uick light romantic read I would definitely recommend The Royal Sheikh to you as a good read

    Katheryn Lane's The Royal Sheikh was full of chemistry and passion and my heart went out to Clare from moments of meeting her Rafi was mysterious and handsome and I was pulling for Clare from the moment they first met The vivid details took me to the Arabian Peninsula which I thoroughly enjoyed The characters were interesting but not too perfect and I couldn't wait to finish reading An enchanting romance that warmed my heart Way to go Ms Lane Can't wait to read Ms Lane's latest novel Her Latin Lover
