The Sheikh's Bartered Bride by Lucy Monroe

I won this as a prize from the authors website.  What little girl hasn't at one time wanted to be stolen away by a gorgeous desert sheikh? Twenty four year old virgin Cat Benning lives in her world of dreams working at the library and looking at the stars.  Into that world comes Sheikh Hakim.  He sweeps her off her feet with a whirlwind courtship and marriage.  Then Cat discovers she’s been set up.  Her father is working a deal with Hakim’s king and the marriage is part of the deal.  There is a clash of cultures and emotions.  I like the way that at one point the girl gets a spine.  I like the gentle way that Hakim never gives up.  I think however I would have been less polite with the dad.
