    CAUTION This book does contain depictions of sexual and physical violence towards women.I enjoy stories set among the Arabic tribes like Lawrence of Arabia , so I thought I would give this book a try It is a little different from other historical romance that I ve run across Abuse sexual, physical, and emotional feature prominently in the past of the heroine and even affect one of the male side characters, both in fairly realistic ways Of course, both people can t be Arabic the hero is CAUTION This book does contain depictions of sexual and physical violence towards women.I enjoy stories set among the Arabic tribes like Lawrence of Arabia , so I thought I would give this book a try It is a little different from other historical romance that I ve run across Abuse sexual, physical, and emotional feature prominently in the past of the heroine and even affect one of the male side characters, both in fairly realistic ways Of course, both people can t be Arabic the hero is actually an orphaned duke who was raised by the Khamisin tribe and then returns to England I definitely liked his tribal name of Khepri better than his English one Kenneth The heroine Badra is pretty strong, especially considering all she s been through, and was a very sympathetic character Khepri is loyal, albeit a little slow to catch on that Badra is reluctant to marry or have sex with him because of her past, even if she doesn t come right out and tell him straight up that she was beaten and raped while enslaved to a previous master The biggest problem I have with the book is that she overcomes these psychological scars a little too quickly to be believable Technically she s spent several years among the Khamisin recovering, but that much abuse doesn t magically vanish after a bout of really good sex Still, the book is essentially improbable, unrealistic romantic fluff akin to The Sheikh and is enjoyable if you don t question it too closely

me some romance what, you think I read fanfics and books because of other substantial stuff Pur lease and it was only 3 I like to think I got my money s worth, unlike Evernight thank you very much.I don t even really remember why I picked it up I guess there is something about exotic sounding locations, forbidden romances , and sexy men who have a fierce devotion to the one love of their life and are honourable and loyal to the death Stuff like that Although I wish we had like like some supernatural angle shoehorned in with mummies, cursed artifacts, andarcheologist esque adventures so this could also make sense as to why I also thought of the Mummy film and Indiana Jones film when I read this I am also not sure where the whole concubine guardian thing came from either Hold on, I think I do it s all coming back to me now.Well what do you know I guess I picked this up because for some strange, unfathomable reason I got deja vu and was instantly reminded of the Percheron trilogy and thought this would be just as good but hopefully not as iffy as that series became.I ll admit that I may have enjoyed this a teensy bitthan I did with the Percheron series and such and that s saying something Well, better off than the sequels anyways I guess this book with the main romance between Khepri Kenneth and Badra was supposed to fulfil the void that I didn t get out of the romance from Lazar Ana They may haveat stake with the whole pending wars and Gods uprisings and all that jazz but I daresay that I believed in Khepri Badra s romance a bit .Although I was kind of cheesed off that I didn t get enough pages to fully develop their romance in the first half of the book Like, I wasn t entirely annoyed that the author briefly summarized their mutual love growing over the five years they spent being in the same tribe together, and constantly having to be near each other due to the whole falcon guard concubine arrangement thing I just wished we got to spendtime with them, so we could have beeninvested in their romance At least the sexual tension was there for most of the book Oh God, the tension I swear, at some points I was just like Oh your God, just SHANK EACH OTHER AND GET IT OVER AND DONE WITH YOU TWO ARE MAKING ME FEEL FRUSTRATED And not in a good way But then again, I guess those were kind of the best moments when it was so bleeding obvious that they had the hots for each other and were inches from just shagging their brains out but had issues that obstructed them I do like the fact that even after they confessed their feelings confronted each other about their issues, it wasn t just instant OH LET S JUST JUMP STRAIGHT INTO THE SEXY TIMES There were still conflict that they had to overcome and they were willing to help each other throughout the way Then, I swear, it gradually became pages of them constantly having sex and I just incredibly bored, and trudged one because I wanted somethinginteresting to happen.At least Badra didn t annoyed me half as much as Ana did Like, Badra had legitimate reasons why she didn t want to pursue a relationship with Khepri no matter how much she loved him I mean, how could you, he sounds incredibly hot and it was so fundamental to the little character growth she got, even though I will admit that she got pushed to the sidelines as a Relationship Sue for most of this book too But for some reason, this didn t annoy me as much as Ana did But I wish we gotdepth with her character as we did with Kenneth Khepri.Kenneth Khepri was just an embodiment Wish Fulfillment Not entirely, because there was moments that made just purse my lips and go hmmmm Like whenever he gets possessive of Badra why hello there Romantic Cliche 475 Although I do not know whether to be perturbed or highly amused that he seems to have the most erratic sex drive when it comes to Badra Seriously, there is like a scene where this English tailor is taking measurements for his pants He has some thoughts about Badra and then bam It s time to have that awkward hello to Khepri s other friend, Mr Boner.I can t say much for everyone else, because they were so static and stayed within their respective archetypes The villains were really underdeveloped and everything was so simple and straightforward I felt kind of cheated because I wished there was so muchAnd don t give me any baloney about oh it s just a romance novel, it s meant to be senseless You know what else is senseless Half the YA books out nowadays that try to be something else, when it really is just a thinly veiled romance novel for teens At least actual romance novels don t have to hide under all that pretense and just tell it as it is Yeah, it got incredibly repetitive, there were moments that were just pure wish fulfillment and God, some of the dialogue was made of absolute cheese but you know what At the end of the day I can say that I genuinely enjoyed it regardless of its absolute corniness especially towards the end and such

    3.5 stars The heroine has suffered great abuses, physically and sexually That s a common theme throughout and may bother some readers The love is deep and real though between the hero and heroine and they go to great lengths to honor each other.

  8. Gypsie Holley Gypsie Holley says:

    Very different from what I normally read Brutal and breathtaking devotion I read this in one sitting and ached for the characters Beautifully depressing, yet utterly rewarding.
