The only thing more purple than the prose in this book is the heroine's dress on the cover-- and even that's up for debate. (Also, look at that cut-- holy cleavage, Batman!) Points for having this set in an actual Middle Eastern region unlike 95% of sheik romances that think that they can get around cultural stereotypes by just making up their own country and then pretending that it's not offensive if it isn't tied to a specific geographic location. The title and the cover made me think I was going to get a really smutty bodice-ripper but #NOPE.
Maybe I'll come back to this one some day-- I'm keeping it because of the cover-- but for now it's a DNF.
