"Annie West has done it again... The characters are fully developed and loveable... These two people fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle - each made to complete the other. I look forward to reading more of Annie West's work." ~ 4 Blue Ribbons, Shayla, The Romance Junkies 

"Ms. West had woven a seductive tale, filled with good sexual tension which showed the strength of desire and emotional depth. This reviewer looks forward to her next book." ~ 4 hearts, Pam, Love Romances and More 

"What a lovely unexpected treat! This is my first Sheikh romance and I really enjoyed it... I loved the storyline and the yummylicious hero." ~ Tash, GoodReads

"Ms. West really knows how to write! I was engrossed in this book from beginning to end...The enveloping passion these two share brings them to heights they have never known and took my breath away." ~ 4 cups, Krista, Coffee Time Romance 

"I fell in love with Arik…which to be honest isn’t new. I fall in love with almost all the Sheikh’s I read, but Arik was dreamy with his handsome good looks, his desire for Rosalie and the way he changed from a man only looking for a bit of action between the sheets to someone dedicated to one woman. Rosalie was the damaged heroine and I actually enjoyed that she didn’t fall at the feet of Arik (like I would have). She had skeletons not only in her closet – but haunting her everyday, stopping her from living her life to the fullest and I enjoyed the happily ever after she was given." ~ Riverina Romantics, GoodReads

"Annie West's wonderful love story... centers on a woman who has known pain and learns that love with the right man can be the most beautiful experience." ~ 4 stars from Sandra Garcia-Myers of Romantic Times 

"... one sensuously romantic read that engrosses and entertains. Her characters are as intriguing as their story..." ~ 4 1/2 stars, Donna Zapf,  CataRomance 

“It was sweet, sensual, exciting with a good romance. Loved the main characters. Recommended.” ~ AvidReader, GoodReads"

"This was a great book. I’m a big fan of sheikh romances, but I liked that this was one was more intimate. There were hints about Arik’s wealthy and powerful identity, but that was in the background. The focus was on the relationship between Rosalie and Arik. How a wary heart found a once shallow man and turned him into a man who was so lovestruck, he wanted nothing more than the one woman he had initially decided to seduce out of boredom. That’s the most awesome kind of book that takes a story you’re kind of ‘meh’ about, and completely draws you in." ~ Danielle the Book Huntress (Back to the Books), GoodReads

"Annie West has yet again written another powerful love story ... truly a magical story full of passion, tenderness and discovery for both Rosalie and Arik."~ Marilyn, Pink Heart Society
