Sayid al Kadar was trained from childhood to be a warrior. He’s fought, he’s conquered-but was never meant to rule… Thrust reluctantly to the throne, Sheikh Sayid is shocked to discover a child who is his country’s true heir, and he’ll do anything to protect him, even if it means taking on the child’s aunt!
Chloe James might behave like a tigress protecting her cub, but this trained soldier can see her weak spot. Taking Chloe as his bride would appease the people of his kingdom, and provide the perfect outlet for the blistering chemistry between them….
This novel is from the Harlequin Presents line. If you’ve read this line before, you basically know the how this will end and it’s simply a matter of how they get there.
I’ve not read a Harlequin Presents novel in quite sometime but I was in the mood for a stand alone HEA. Heir to a Desert Legacy met those requirements. It was a fast uncomplicated read.
Maybe I’ve become jaded after reading so many different types of romance novels. It just didn’t do anything for me. It was a bit too short and lacked some additional development. I did not connect with either main character.
If you’re a dedicated fan of Harlequin Presents, you will probably like this novel. If you expect to feel a sympathy for the heroine and love interest, you might be disappointed. I was torn on the rating but when I’m on the line, I almost always give the author the benefit of the higher rating. (In my mind, just writing a halfway decent novel is an accomplishment).
My Rating: 3 Stars (weak)
