Release month: UK & USA - January 2007
The S-Factor: Sweet
Needed: a mother for the Sheikh’s children
Melissa Fox’s trip to the
When she realizes how much the children need her, Melissa agrees to stay – she will teach the gorgeous but guarded Sheikh how to love and care for them. Only she finds herself in love with a man she could only ever dream of marrying…
This book is the seventh in The Brides of Bella Lucia series.
I confess that it took me a little while to warm to the heroine, Melissa, but her genuine loyalty and love for the children soon shone through and had me rooting for her future happiness. Surim is a gorgeous hero, but there was a time when I wondered whether he was deserving of Melissa! He refused to acknowledge how special she was, and failed to see the shallowness of the other prospective brides-to-be. I loved the setting of Qu’Arim and learning about the different customs.
The children were wonderful secondary characters, adding to, rather than detracting from the overall romance. Barbara McMahon has successfully created a believable story, showing that Western and Eastern cultures can blend and have a happy-ever-after future.
