Before Iris Johansen began her Eve Duncan novels of romantic suspense, she wrote a number of series romance novels in the mid 1980's for the Loveswept imprint. The Trustworthy Redhead is one of her 15 or so Loveswept stories set in the Kindgom of Sedikan. Each story introduces a set of characters who will then be added to the next story so that the reader can follow the interconnected families and stories. This story was early in the series (#3 I think) and introduces the leader of Sedikan, Alex Ben Rashid.
This is an old school "sweet" series romance. Not exactly Barbara Cartland, but definetly not Karen Marie Moning, JR Ward or even today's Iris Johansen. The storyline is fairly predictible, opposites attract, the men are alpha males, there are disagreements between the couple, and then the main characters realize their mistakes. Definetly not politically correct or a modern romance.
Other books later in the Sedikan series are offered by Audible with different narrators, to varying degrees of success according to the performance reviews. The change to Elisabeth Rodgers is a welcome addition to the series.
If you want a short, traditional 1980's series romance, this is a good story, well written and an interesting beginning to the series
