Review! The Sheikh's Accidental Heir By Leslie North

Sheikh Ahmed Al-Qasimi is used to playing by his own rules, but when his father decides that his lifestyle of excess is becoming a threat to his future, he has to work fast to clean up his image, or face the consequences. Ahmed is resigned to an arranged marriage to a woman with whom he feels no romantic spark, until another ghost from his past comes back to haunt him: his American ex-lover.

Melanie is working to prove her catering business is a world class operation, so when she is offered the opportunity to provide the food at Ahmed’s wedding, she can’t say no—even though they once shared a night of passion. When a stranger offers her $100,000 to stall the wedding, it’s hard to refuse, especially when the connection between them is reigniting with a vengeance.

Letting go of the past isn’t so easy, though, when Melanie reveals a secret of her own.

Now, Ahmed will have to choose between being with the woman he’s falling for and saving his fiancĂ©e from a loveless marriage to another man. With his entire future at stake, can Ahmed find happiness for himself and the women in his life?

The Sheikh’s Accidental Heir was overall just an okay read for me.  I am starting to wonder if I just don’t connect with this author’s style when it comes to her Sheikh themed romances.  These are usually my guilty pleasure; there is just something about the culture that intrigues me.  Maybe it is because I live next to one of the largest populations of Middle Eastern people outside of the Middle East or it is the fantasy that a handsome Sheikh will fall in love with the girl he shouldn’t that has me wanting to read these books.

I really had a hard time connecting with Melanie; I couldn’t even at the end find more feelings for her than she was just okay, nothing special.  I wanted to connect with her in some way but as much as I tried I just couldn’t.  Ahmed I really liked his character throughout the book.  He was in a situation that he didn’t want to be a part of, he wanted Melanie, and he wanted his beautiful American and didn’t want the bride he was arranged to marry, against his wishes of course. 

The Sheikh’s Accidental Heir is a fairly quick read, and I wish I had liked it more than I did.
