Surrender to the Playboy Sheikh

Author: Kate Hardy

line: Presents (Modern Heat)

Release month: July 2009

The S Factor: Sensual
Red-hot nights with a desert prince!

Karim al-Hassan can have any woman he wants, and sexy little waitress lily Finch is in his sights. One glance leads to a searing kiss - and a hunger that Karim plans to satisfy with a temporary fling.

But lily is more than just a waitress. Successful and career-focused, she is determined never to mix business with pleasure again - until playboy Karim's slow seduction breaks her resistance! Soon Karim is breaking his own rules: he wants lily in his bed - for ever!

Kate Hardy has penned another winner with this book. Karim was easy to love while remaining alpha not only as the future ruler of his nation but as a man. He saw what he wanted and pursued it with a single minded relentlessness that can only be admired - lily.

lily has been let down very badly in the past and is wary of Karim. If she tells herself they will have a sexy fling until Karim has to go back home, she thinks it will work. She does not anticipate losing her heart and is faced with a heartbreaking choice - to marry the man she loves but give up everything she has worked towards for years.

Karim knows lily is everything the wife of a Sheikh should not be. If he marries the woman he loves, he will let down his family. I truly could not see how I was going to get my Happy Ever After with this book. However, with masterful writing and skillful insight, Kate Hardy managed to pull this off. And then some. The end had me crying - which, to me, is aways the sign of a fantastic read.
