The Sheikh's Pregnant Bride (The Jawhara Sheikhs #1) by Leslie North

Heat Rating

Sheik Kamal runs a small country in the Middle East and while in America wrapping up business the Sheik and his brother attend a party to celebrate the successful deal that will benefit his country. When he spots Erin he immediately wants her and as the evening progresses his plans become long term but before he can convince her he is called home because a crisis has arisen.

Erin went to a business party with her cousin and while talking with the man her cousin has it bad for his brother walks up. She has no clue who he is but she is going to break her own rules because the chemistry is irresistible. When he has to return home it is with the promise they will see each other again and body guard and car for her. After weeks of not hearing from him she finds herself pregnant and before she can even tell him she finds herself with a fiancé and in another country.

I thought the characters were interesting but found the story line just not measuring up. I would find it hard to be challenging to any man who wasn't even present 75% of the time. He was in his home country and then the days she arrives in his he leaves for several days.

The editing needed on this book is minimal in that I found only three locations where edits were needed, two where a word didn't fit in the sentence and one sentence that made no sense at all.

Book's Cover Rating
I really like the cover and so hope it doesn't get me censored before I can set up the naughty version on my blog.

Book's Blurb Rating
The blurb could use some editing, a little less information and a lot more thought.

Book's Blurb:
When Sheikh Kamal first saw Erin from across the ballroom he knew he must have her - and he always got what he wanted.

But Erin isn't like the other girls he knows. Even for an American she is exceptionally feisty, strong and stubbornly independent. A challenge to him. Yet he can't keep his eyes off her, her stunning beauty kept him captivated for the whole evening.

When Erin first saw Sheikh Kamal she had no idea he was royalty and leader of Jawhara, one of the largest (and wealthiest) countries in the Middle East. She just saw him as an irresistible handsome man, tall, with deep brown eyes and a muscular physique. Definitely her type.

He was perfect - apart from his personality.

He was so arrogant, controlling, and dominating. Everything she told herself she NEVER wanted in a man. Yet, she feels such a strong pulls towards him, even his scent is intoxicating..

They sneak away from the ball and go back to Erin's apartment where they share an intense night of love making. In the morning Kamal is called urgently back to his country.

As the weeks go by, and the gifts from Kamal pile up, Erin makes a shocking discovery. She is carrying the heir to a kingdom..

When Kamal discovers this, he will do anything to bring her to his country and make her his bride. But Erin has other ideas..
