The Return of the Sheikh
Harlequin Desire, May 7 2013, $5.25
For several years the Crown Prince of Bajul, Zain Mehdi enjoyed the outside world of the West as the “Playboy Prince” but destroyed his reputation within his country by doing so. Now, he returns home to rule his kingdom. His brother Prince Rafiq understands the need to clean his sibling’s tarnished image of a womanizer so he hires media consultant Madison Foster to improve how Zain’s subjects see him.
Although he objected to an image consultant, Zain and Madison are attracted to each other. However, both accept the reality that they cannot be more than a short fling as he must marry a royal instead of the woman he loves who secretly carries his child.
This is an enjoyable contemporary romance as two individuals in love have no hope for anything permanent between them. Although the storyline goes as expected, fans will enjoy the Return of the Sheikh to rule his kingdom at the cost of his heart.
