Publisher's Summary

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?

Great start to a fun romantic series!

Stories about leaders always intrigue me. The brooding handsome man, the strong willed woman who gives him a hard time is the general theme. Leslie North uses this idea, but expands on it so you get lost in the story. The first book in this series, Khalid, first in line to be Sultan is getting a woman his father picked. Casey, an American reporter, is doing an article about arranged marriages. The fun now begins! This couple from the start has high intensity and scorching chemistry. How they finally get it together is complete entertainment. Leslie North has a way of giving us well developed characters in a short period of time, enough to have us looking to the next I the series. Khalid's brothers are waiting in the wings, and I am anxiously waiting for the next audio!

The choice of Nichals Thurkettle to narrate this book is perfect. He has the rough, raspy voice with that sound of high class royalty. Great choice.

Nice Romance

I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The story is a nice listen with an HEA that is expected. The interactions between the characters were to be expected. The story was well written and narrated. But each scene made me think I have heard this before in another book. I have listened to many of this author's stories and enjoyed them. Ths was another one that was easy to listen to.
