Rating: 5 of 5 Kisses!


He would claim the throne. And her... "For Prince Haidar Aal Shalaan, taking the reins of a kingdom in chaos is a matter of honor. Not that his rivals to the throne would be defeated easily. And then there is Roxanne Gleeson, the one woman whose memory he cannot erase, the lover who once rejected him. Now she pretends a cold disdain for their once-and still-desperate passion. But he will not be denied either the throne of his motherland or Roxanne back in his bed. One is his birthright, the other his heart's desire. And together they are...his redemption.

Kitten's Review:

Hello, Olivia Gates!

Hello, Harlequin Presents series Desire!

I have a great many friends that read these books but the truck load. Always, I have been curious as to what draws them to the quick reads of Harlequin that seem to cookie cutter and perfect. So, I took a chance and requested for review a few books. Let me just say, that with Olivia Gates, I was not disappointed!

The Sheikh’s Redemption is the story about one hell of a sexy Alpha male—well three that we see actually. Gates is so kind as to introduce us to three in this first installment. All I can say is yum and let me count the ways this story sexed me up and made me cry. I was moved, I cried, I laughed, I fell to my knees and nearly begged for Haider to tie up Foxy Roxy. For a woman that has sworn off men and all the intimate details the woman is a boiling over pot of smexy. I loved her as heroine! She was a strong, yet vulnerable female, without being annoyingly vulnerable. Did they need to just talk it out sometimes—yes. But don’t all the H/h relationships in romance books?

Not only was this read well written, but it gave me a satisfying storyline that had me hunting down the next installment, which wasn’t written at the time, to the Desert Nights Series. I would love to read more by Olivia. She gives me the hot Alphas I want, in a vanilla relationship, but it is so totally satisfying!
