Defying the Sheikh

Author: Michelle Hughes
Published: 31 March 2012
Pages: 96 pages
Genre: Mild Erotica/Historical Romance (Novella)
Pinky's Rating (out of 5): 4 dragonflies

When Michaela Rosewood finds herself married to Sheikh Abdul Armon Hanbali, she is none to impressed, especially after studying books on Saudi Arabia and how they treat their females. We follow Michaela and Armon on their journey as two strong willed personalities come together and learn how to adapt to each other.

Michelle markets this story as her first foray into Historical Romance and in my opinion I feel she has pulled it off wonderfully. I enjoyed the strong willed Michaela and her fiery exchanges with Armon, as well as the softer side of their relationship.  Yes many readers may find the story line and Armon's way of life disturbing, however I feel that Michelle's research into this area has been well done.

There are many steamy scenes in this novella, best read when there is nobody looking over your shoulder.
