Book Review: The Sheikh's Virgin Princess

Sarah Morgan's modern day fairytale is one of the best stories I've read in this Harlequin line in years.

Imagine if you will, a princess of a faraway land called Rovina and then a Sultan of an even further away country, Zangrar. These two people are betrothed to each other through and agreement between their fathers. One is desperate for the union the other isn't.

Both hero and heroine are both stubborn and determined to get what they want. As the story moves along, one finds their feelings changing, even though they are keeping things from each other during their travels/courtship.

What I liked about this book: The heroine though a virgin (OMG there are still 24 year old virgins?) wasn't wishy washy as many female characters are in this predicament. She was strong and tried to fight her own demons to protect herself from the danger she was in.

The hero was really the perfect prince charming.

Another plus is that the sex scenes didn't come before they were needed and they were tastefully done. No throbbing spearheads of longing, thank God!

This book actually gave me faith that there are really some good authors writing for this line. I find it heard to trust books with titles that always contain one of the following words, Virgin, Mistress, Bride, Millionaire/Billionaire, & Tycoon. Also insert the nationality of your choice in with the Millionaire Tycoons, usually Greek or Italian.

This was a really fun and enjoyable read. The perfect book to while away a boring afternoon. I'll look for more of Sarah Morgan's Presents novels soon.
