Book Description

In order to meet up with her sister and her husband, who live in politically unstable Zimbabwe, Emily travels on her own to Zanzibar. Her biggest mistake is to accept the charming words of a French trader who offers her a free ride in a yacht in return for her services as a crew member. This man turns out to be a drug dealer, and after being exposed by the sheikh, the trader offers Emily as a gift! The sheikh thinks she is a prostitute, and her attempts to convince him otherwise fall on deaf ears. And now, she finds herself held captive in the luxurious palace...!

Not one of Emma Darcy's best books, far too many rambling words, just to fill up pages, it's a shame because the outline of the story could have been written much better between the two characters.
Would not recommend, save your money. Very Poor quality, Mill and Boon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, fast paced story 22 April 2006
By Joel W. Barnett - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm probably not the typical reader of Harlequin Romances, 49 year old married man. Never read one before, (or any other romance fiction), but I liked this a lot. The sheikh is of course wealthy and very handsome and the heroine is beautiful, with an independent streak which is challenged by the captive plotline, which works quit well. Can the somewhat autocratic man, used to everything being his way, adjust to the the heroine's independence ? Can she give up some of that independence for the love that she desires and he offers ?

Sure she can, but he must prove to her that he is worthy of her trust, and of course he is and he does. The happy ending is required in this genre, but then I like happy endings.

Think of this as Raymond Chandler writing for women, all the details aren't resolved at the end but the big picture is good. Speaking of loose ends, why did the belly dancer costume fit Emma so well ?

Warning potential spoilers ahead: not your typical harlequin in that the heroine is a widow who was married for a few years to a guy she really loved. She is trying to get to her sister and makes the mistake of getting a ride on a boat of criminals. Bad things could have happened but she swims ashore and there is the typical mix up of the hero not believing that she isn't the belly dancing lover of the sleazy captain. He believes her story more or less but instead of asking for his help with her sister she puts on one of the belly dancing costumes and offers herself up to him in order to "buy" passage to her sister. This was stupid and contrived - she didn't even try to ask nicely and he was even ready to help her out. There entire relationship is tainted by the idea that she is just buying his help with sex and then when things become more serious for him she never really understands. The hero nearly sacrifices himself to save her family and blah blah happy ending. Not terrible, but not a heroine that I was ever able to connect with or care about.

4.0 out of 5 stars LIKE IT 19 May 2006
By Lady Raven RAVE! - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
ISN'T Joel's review cute and nice...but anyway liked it simple quick read, is it worth it yes it kind of reminds me of a historical romance novel being his captive because its kind of rear to read about captive and trade in modern romance novels


Who dares trespass on Sheikh Zageo's palace on the exotic island of Zanzibar? Zageo demands that the intruder be brought before him!

Emily Ross is appalled to find she's the sheikh's prisoner. To prove her innocence she needs Zageo's help. If the price is giving herself to him, then it's one she'll have to pay....

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good 27 Feb. 2012
By Serene Night - Published on

This was a fairly light, quick read, about a young woman who ends up crewing a ship that is owned by a drug runner. When the crew is arrested oversees, she is implicated, however the local Sheikh who finds her attractive decides to test her.

Like most Harlequin manga, Traded to the Sheikh is pretty badly abridged. So, most of the story is cut out. While there was nothing wrong with this story, neither did it really have much detail. The hero was nice and decent, he tried to help the heroine, and the heroine offers herself to him as his bedmate, which leads to him thinking she isn't interested. The romance is nearly non-existant as these two like eachother from the start, and there really isn't much to their lovestory beyond him helping find her family.

I felt the art was subpar in this book. The faces are childishly drawn, and compared to other HQ manga looked a bit amateurish. I've read better, and while it wasn't awful it wasn't all that great either.
