Why You'll Like It: Industrial Revolution. Cultural Differences. Steamy Love.
I remember growing up reading about the sheikhs kidnapping the English maidens and taming them. *cough*BETRICESMALLS*cough* The maiden would fight hard to resist his hedonistic charms, but the erotic pleasures would soon overtake her and she would succumb to desire. I always wondered as a young and impressionable teen (I'm so serious) did they ever kidnap brown girls? I was like did they only ever kidnap English fair skin blonde or red hair (like FIRE) to bring to their naughty harem?
It's nice to know that future teens growing up wanting to sneak and read romances can have their pick of whatever maiden they want--especially if they want a coy African-American lady. This book was absolutely delightful. I mean Olivia was a powerhouse---but every time Khalid came on the scene and there was sexy times--I was like "Yassssss, Olivia"
It was a quick read, but the setting was so much fun and I love the Brown writes her characters with so much life. If you are looking for other historical romance works from this author, try The Viking Wants Forever.
