Review: The Sheik and the Bought Bride by Susan Mallery

The Sheik and the Bought Bride (Desert Rogues, #13) (Silhouette Special Edition, #1999)

It was bad enough being hauled out of bed by palace guards. Now Victoria McCallan had just offered to pay off her father’s gambling debts–with herself as the prize So the palace secretary was shocked when sexy Prince Kateb made her a counteroffer….When Kateb whisked Victoria off to the desert to be his mistress for six months, the widowed ruler had no intention of falling in love. But the outspoken Texas transplant was soon tempting him to change his royal ways. Duty decreed the El Deharia sheik should wed a proper mate, but Kateb’s heart was telling him something else: to claim Victoria as his woman–now and forever.

I liked Victoria form the previous book and she didn’t disappoint me in this one. She’s still fun and very forward, nothing is left behind with her, but did not appreciate the reasons why she ended up in the desert on the first place.

Prince Kateb sounded like a wounded guy since the first time I saw him. But to use Victoria the way he did, was very wrong. She’s just a nice girl, looking for the future, nothing wrong with that and he didn’t knew her reasons, so in the end she’s not bad, just a little lost after everything she’s been through.

I feel like something is missing at the end of this series. I’ve met several princes and Kingdoms, but I wanted the last book to show how things would be in a few years and everybody happy.
