Never Refuse a Sheikh (International Bad Boys #5) by Jackie Ashenden



When the sheikh claims a wife, she cannot refuse …

Altair is a man perfectly in control both of himself and the power he wields as regent of Al Harah. Yet in order to retain his stronghold on the country he loves, he must wed a princess wilder than the Bedouin tribe she was raised in. A princess who only has one word for him: no.

Princess Safira knows what freedom means and it isn’t a palace or a crown. Neither does it mean being told what to do by a man with more ice in his veins than blood. Safira is innocent in the ways of men, but the heat in Altair’s gaze calls to a deep, unclaimed part of her soul she cannot deny. Altair seems hell-bent on civilizing her, but she’s not so easily tamed. Especially not when she can sense the wildness that lives in him….

My Review

***I received this ebook from NetGalley and the publisher in return for my honest opinions.***

I really enjoyed this book in the ways that it showed how much is expected of a sheikh or any royalty for that matter to do what is best for their people and not necessarily for themselves. It was really sad to read about how the poor princess was whisked away and raised in secret just to keep her alive only to be wanted as she is older to be a pawn basically. She is told she is to marry the Sheikh and there isn't anything she can do about it, she might as well accept her fate. While I felt for her and her situation I was so excited with who the sheikh was and what it would mean for him as well as her to be together. I loved their story and how they did come together and how they faced the situations thrown at them head on...sorta lol. Really enjoyed the book. I'm rating this one in at four hearts!!!
