THE SHEIKH'S DISOBEDIENT BRIDE
Photographer Tally Devers has been in dangerous spots before, but nothing in her experience can prepare her for being kidnapped by a sheikh. Sheikh Tair rules the desert and is used to getting what he wants, so when he decides to take Tally as his bride, no amount of pleading, anger or attempted escapes will dissuade him. The harder Tally and Tair fight, the harder they fall, and it isn't long before they are fighting not only each other but their growing feelings of love and lust. The Sheikh's Disobedient Bride (2), by Jane Porter, suffers from the implausibility of its plot and from the fact that Tair is, for most of the book, a character that inspires fearfulness rather than love.
