Publisher's Summary

Pride and passion vie for supremacy in this fresh new telling of E.M. Hull's romance classic.
A haughty young heiress for whom the world is a playground… A savage son of the Sahara who knows no law but his own…
"There will be inquiries." I choked out. "I am not such a nonentity that nothing will be done when I am missed. You will pay dearly for what you have done."
"Pay?" His amused look sent a cold feeling of dread through me. "I have already paid…in gold that matches your hair, my gazelle. Besides," he continued, "the French have no jurisdiction over me. There is no law here above my own."
My trepidation was growing by the minute. "Why have you done this? Why have you brought me here?"
"Why?" He repeated with a slow and heated appraisal that made me acutely, almost painfully, conscious of my sex. "Bon Dieu! Are you not woman enough to know?"
When pride and passion vie for supremacy, blistering desert days are nothing compared to sizzling Sahara nights…

The Story:

Diana Mayo is a passionate strong willed woman. She has been raised with wealth and privilege. She knows what she wants and she goes after it. What she wants now is a holiday in the vast Sahara deasert. She has dreamed of it for years and now that her chance is finally here nothing will stop her, even the wishes of her brother and friends.

Sheik Ahmed Ben Hassan is the ruler of all that he knows. No one goes against his wishes. He gets what he wants even if it is by force. And having seen Diana in a ballroom before she sets of on her trek he has decided she will be his.

The Narration:

The narration was well done. Dawn Hyde was clear and concise with just the right amount of emotion thrown in at the appropriate parts.

My Thoughts:

I was wondering if I was going to be at a loss with this story since I had no prior knowledge with the 1919 Classic The Sheik. However I had no need to fear. This is exactly what is called it is a retelling of the story and what a story it was.

The author did a fantastic job of transporting us into the middle of the Sahara. The hot nights made even hotter with the relationship building between the 2 main characters were a joy to read about. The chemistry between these two strong characters will set your reading or listening device a smolderin’.

Review:


"The Sheik Retold" by authors Victoria Vane and E.M. Hull was a beautiful story told. The authors really knows who to capture your attention in the 1920 remake and kept it with the intenseness that surrounds the read. I have read this novel from my Kindle and also the novel but I loved listening to this story being told by a narrator even more. Ms. Hyde did a wonderful job at bringing this story to life. I knew from my earlier reads that Diana was a force to be reckon with being so strong willed, independent and all but on this journey she really portrays that part of having so much strength to endure what all she had to go through being raised by such a horrible half brother and even more as we get into the read. It was really interesting how the authors brought out that Diana despised being a woman and since men only seemed to love her for the way she looks...so, she decides to take a vacation in the Sahara desert against everyone's advice alone.


I liked this quote from Diana...


"My life is mine and I will deal with it exactly as I wish. I will do what I choose when and how I choose. I will never again obey any will but my own."


We will be presented a story of what will happen when a strong alpha man kidnaps this strong woman. It will be a intriguing rides with a few sex scene that may have you holding your breathe while listening to this erotic story! Be prepared to go on a journey that will have some of it all... adventure, fear, seduction, submission, kidnapping, drama, shock, erotic sex, anger, death, passion to even joy. "The Sheik Retold" was a well written historical, with steamy erotic scenes that you will keep listening to this captivating novel until the very end. The characters were all so very well defined, portrayed, colorful and developed only making this such a phenomenal read that I would definitely recommend to you.
