Rated 4 out of 5 White Roses.
Content rated with the Pale Pink Rose.
Libby Fay just wants to make ends meet. So, when she gets the perfect job, she resolves to follow the rules set forth by her boss to keep it. However, Sheikh Rasyn ibn Bakr ibn Rahman al Jabar has other plans for her. He will do whatever it takes to convince Libby Fay that she must accompany him home. Even if that involves telling her that he loves her.
Rasyn just wants to do what is best for his country. He believes that if his cousin were the ruler, it would suit the people of Abbas best. So, he flaunts convention by bringing Libby Fay home. After all, she is a commoner and in no way fit to be the queen of Abbas. However, things did not seem to work out at all, as he had planned. Somehow she has won the hearts of his people. Will she win his heart as well?
Ladies, this book had me hooked! I have to admit, I found the Sheikh distrustful from the very beginning, so I had to see how he redeemed himself in the end. Then there was poor Libby Fay. I just could not understand how she let herself be taken in by him. I guess chemistry is a powerful thing. However, as the story continued, Rasyn slowly redeems himself and I can understand what drew Libby to him in the first place.
The story was nothing like what I would have expected when I first picked it up, but I did truly enjoy Cinderella and the Sheikh. Teresa Morgan has a way of drawing you into the story and making you feel like you are actually a part of it. Indeed, this courtesan looks forward to seeing what the author has in store for her next book.
