Lucy Monroe pens a lovely story about an innocent young woman who falls in love, only to find out her husband may not be the romantic sheikh of her dreams...or is he? Catherine Benning grew up shy and self-conscious, never feeling good enough for her family or for love, instead feeling like a burden and an embarrassment. Yet when she reaches adulthood, things change, and she slowly comes out of her shell, enjoying a career and a hobby that she believes she shares with the man of her dreams. Sheikh Hakim bin Omar al Kadar knows his obligations. To fulfill an agreement to bring an advanteous opportunity to his country, that obligation may be to marry the daughter of an American businessman. Once they meet, the two become involved in a whirlwind courtship, one that does them both good. Catherine blossoms even more as she falls in love with her sheikh, and Hakim begins to see that marriage is more than an obligation but a partnership filled with respect, companionship and affection. However when Catherine realizes the truth behind their meeting, will Hakim be able to convince her that she's the one he really wants? Lucy takes two very popular personality types of the Harlequin Presents line and breathes new life into both. While shy and innocent, Catherine is not afraid to speak her mind and refuses to cower when arguing with her alpha husband. Hakim may be a powerful sheikh, but he respects his wife and treats her as a woman, not as as property. You will fall in love right along with them, maybe even wanting a sheikh of your own.
