Book Description

19 Aug 2011 Mills & Boon Modern
Not your average damsel in distress! Sheikh Prince Amir has vowed to redeem his scandalous family name - so the last thing he needs on a tour of his desert kingdom is to have a sensuous blonde with more spirit than clothes presented for his harem. Fiery Cassie might have been kidnapped by bandits and dolled up as the Sheikh's love-slave, but she refuses to be any man's plaything. Yet spending a week in Amir's desert tent pretending to be his mistress would get under any girl's skin. Especially when she is under his sheets.

GIRL IN A BEDOUIN TENT by Annie West is a Harlequin Mills & Boon Modern(UK), Presents(NA) and Sexy(Aust/NZ) release.

Prince Amir, Sheikh of Tarakhar, prided himself on his developed and law-abiding desert Kingdom. Imagine his surprise when he is presented with a sex-slave who was kidnapped from his kingdom by the neighbouring bandit chief. He is livid with anger. He saves Australian volunteer teacher Cassandra Denison, after a week of Cassie pretending to be his mistress at the bandit camp.

Amir feels the explosive chemistry between them but tries to keep himself aloof for he has given his word that Cassie would be safe.

Giving in to their desire they discover their sizzling sensuality take them to unexpected places. But where will it end? Once back at the royal palace, Amir installs Cassie in the harem away from family and friends. Is he ashamed of her?

Will Cassie calmly accept a place in Amir's harem and not in his heart? And the whole kingdom is buzzing with news of their Sheikh's imminent nuptial, what will happen to Cassie now?

GIRL IN THE BEDOUIN TENT is guaranteed to take you places and make you forget your immediate surroundings. It's alpha but sensitive hero and a strong heroine who stands up for herself is a magical escape to the sheikhdom.

The sensuality in the love scenes is astounding.

Annie West is one of Harlequin's most consistent writers and she always delivers fabulous page-turners which readers find absolutely impossible to put down. GIRL IN THE BEDOUIN TENT is fast-paced and feel-good romance that sparkles with red-hot sensuality, sizzling sex scenes, mesmerizing emotion and intense passion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 9 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
What a wonderful story this is! I love Annie West's take on the classic romance. This is like The Sheikh for the 21st century. Cassie's brave and smart and full of heart. Amir is a delicious hero. Honorable and perceptive and torn between the demands of his roles as a ruler and as a man. The scenes when Cassie and Amir are trapped in the tent, fighting their attraction, sizzle with sexual tension. Another winner from Annie West! I can't wait to see what she's got coming up next!

By ROROBLU'S MUM TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
The previous reviewer has given a good synopsis and review of the book, and I actually read it based on that. I am glad that I did not buy it, as I found it boring and slow, despite having read similar M&B offerings by class authors such as Charlotte Lamb and Anne Hampson, from the 70's - those had more passion and more action than this novel.

Yes, he was a sheikh and she just an ordinary female, and their worlds were apart, but I couldn't see where the alleged passion between them came from. We got no explanation as to his almost-perfect English, nothing much to his background other than his father was an 'Arab' in the very looses sense, playboy who married a model, causing scandal, and that both died prematurely. We know barely nothing about him, yet a fair bit about the female lead and what has made her the woman that she is.

The sex scenes were tame, boring and barely descriptive, and the very obvious 'plant' i.e. the invention of a fiancee, some 20 pages before the end of the book, was the icing on the cake. But not icing on the cake in a good way - no, for me, this is possibly the end of my relationship with M&B.

Yes, I know most M&B readers want a bit of escapism, but these days, they are more modern readers and so the books need to move with the times, instead of being so cliche'd. Yes, it's nice to see an 'ordinary' i.e. from a working class background female lead who is feisty taking on a sheikh i.e. Arab royalty, but the relationship needed to be more even and more fleshed out. For him to suddenly announce that there never was a fiancee and to propose marriage...just felt contrived, and for her to immediately accept felt as if her once-there backbone disintegrated....oh well, this was only 40p wasted, and not the entire RRP.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies 14 Mar 2012
By C. Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Prince Amir, Sheikh of Trakhar is an honest and fair man who takes great pride in his territory's hospitability to tourists - unfortunately neighboring rulers don't possess the same sort of ethics. Amir's not altogether surprised when he's `gifted' with a sex-slave for his personal use while visiting Bhutran to discuss the problematic border raids. What surprises him is the woman's defiant attitude - and the fact that she is a kidnap victim from one of the raids on his lands.

Cassandra `Cassie' Denison may have been presented to Prince Amir as a willing sex-slave but she quickly clears up any misconceptions he might have as to the truth of the matter. Unfortunately garnering her release won't be as easy as she'd hoped. Amir can't risk jeopardize his negotiations just to remove her from this situation, instead she'll have to pretend to be content with her position as Amir's mistress and stay in his desert tent for a week.

While Cassie isn't happy to learn that Amir can't immediately sweep her away to safety she is grateful that he isn't making the situation any more unbearable than it already is and even seems concerns about her welfare. What neither of them expects is for their mutual attraction to each other to become impossible to deny. Amir is determined to restore honor to his family name and Cassie is not just a foreigner but a foreigner who possesses a family scandal of her own. A future together seems to be completely out of the question but that isn't something either of them is ready to accept.

I admit it; I love sheikh stories. There's just something so regal and overbearing about their mannerisms that makes reading about a `commoner' who turns his world upside down simply delightful.

Annie West more than fulfilled my expectations with her newest book GIRL IN THE BEDOUIN TENT. Amir and Cassie mesh in a way that's wonderfully captivating because both have such strong personalities and are haunted by family scandal. Of course, the sexual tension between them definitely amps up the `gotta read' factor but it's their genuine love for each other that made me smile and made me sigh in longing. No romance is complete (or worthwhile) without pitfalls, misunderstandings and an argument or two and Ms. West delivers on all accounts with highly enjoyable results.

If you've never read a book by Annie West then I'd recommend paying a visit to her website and checking out all the titles she has to offer. I've read several of her books already and always look forward to seeing what will be available next. Be sure to keep an eye out for her next release UNDONE BY HIS TOUCH which is due to be released in the U.S. in June.

Girl in the Bedouin Tent (Harlequin Presents Extra)I don't like Sheikh romances...and always buy them as a last resort--and only after checking out other people's reviews. This one, however, was very romantic and the other reviewers were correct--well done!!!!!!!!
The heroine, Cassie, was kidnapped on her way to a teaching job in what sounds like a made up middle eastern country somewhere and she's given to the hero (literally) as a sex slave since I guess he's king and that's what they do in that land.
The hero, Amir, has integrity and basic common sense and as a result literally saves her life and the two embark on a romance....neither could stop/quell or help the attraction that from the get go sprung between them. The writer, master of her craft, pulls us into every glance, every shy look and heart-beat...we are holding our breath with both of them...and you can almost see the romance growing between them (could almost visualize it).
Cassie has spunk, character and is a real woman (insecurities etc. but isn't over come by them) and likewise, Amir is a true hero: protective, integrity, and has that selfish trait and his own insecurities too--but works through them as well.
We're able to see how both people could fall in love by the similarities in their life experiences and how they view the world. I was able to see why she would love him, and vice versa--why he would be drawn to her. Loved it, loved it...I also liked that she had a teaching job, teaching the women English because it seemed anything less would not have been in line with her character and her background as a western woman (she's Australian). Very well done. Buy the book--and keep it in your back reading files to re-read on a rainy day.
