Wanted: royal bride and mother!
For Sheikh Tariq of Al Sarath, one miserable marriage was enough. With a kingdom to rule he has no time - nor wish - to find a bride, but his children need a mother.
Could Princess Samira of Jazeer be the answer? Samira has sampled passion, and it left a bad taste... So, knowing she can't have the children she's always wanted, Samira steps into Tariq's ready-made family. Her only condition? No sex!
Samira had thought royal duties and her love for Tariq's children would fill the hole in her heart, but a craving is building that only the Sheikh's touch can cure...

One stupid mistake in the past, has cost Samira her dreams. There will be no loving family for her, as she won't be able to have children. The next best thing will be marrying a man who already has children, like her brother's best friend Tariq. She has always had a crush on him, and now he has become a widower. But will he want a wife with a scandalous past like Samira?
And will his two little boys be enough to fill the emptiness in her heart?

A marriage of convenience, Tariq accepts Samira's proposal, but he will do whatever he can to make her change her mind about the no sex rule. After all, he has been in love with her since she was 16, and he only married someone else for the sake of his kingdom …

I really enjoyed this book, and my heart broke for Samira. Especially when she fell in love with a man who tells her he is uncapable of love himself…

9 stars.
