Isla couldn’t believe it when her older brother threatened her with marriage to that evil monster. Everyone knew that Sheik Hussan El-Hamin was a horrible human being who ruled the neighboring country with an iron fist. He wouldn’t even let reporters into his country – probably because they would report his abuses!
Now the man sitting in the front row at her brother’s wedding - he was a different matter! This man was tall, handsome, gloriously male with stunning eyes and a muscular physique. But she knew that her brother would betroth her to someone who could be a political ally so she had to eliminate the handsome stranger from her thoughts.
As soon as Hussan saw his friend’s sister, he knew he wanted the lovely Isla to be his wife. When she had to smother her laughter about mismatched shoes, his choice was made.
Convincing the slender beauty that he wasn’t a monster was a whole other matter, he realized. But from their very first kiss, he knew he was up to the challenge.
