The Sheik's Ruby

About the book: Shelby wants to break away from the mold of her small town and make a name for herself in the big-city journalism world. While skiing, she meets mysterious stranger Hakim who is actually the prince of the Middle Eastern kingdom of Khali-dar. 

When his enemies learn of Hakim’s connection to an American girl, they target Shelby. Fleeing to the safety of Khali-dar, Shelby falls deeper in love not only with the prince, but with his country. As she struggles to survive terrorist attacks, withstand the Sheik’s prejudice, and find her place in a world she doesn’t understand, she must choose which life she is willing to sacrifice—the comfortable one she has worked so hard to create, or the one with the man she loves.

My review: I'm always on the lookout for new books by my favorite authors and Jennifer Moore is really one of the best. I love her characters, she really has a way with making the characters step off the pages of her books and seem real. Shelby was such a great character, it was so fun to see things from her perspective. It was also really fun how Shelby didn't know that Hakim was a prince, but the reader does, that made the scene where he was helping her family on the farm doubly funny to me! Hakim is a great character too, I loved how he fell for Shelby, even though he knew that his father and really the whole kingdom of Khali-dar would not be pleased with his choice.

I loved the way that the kingdom of Khali-dar came alive for me as well, I almost felt as though I were the one tramping through the deserts on a horse. 

The love story in this book is top-notch! I love the way that Jennifer Moore writes. It's almost as if you can imagine that you are the one in this almost perfect love story. It can't be truly perfect, there has to be little bumps along the way! And the ending was amazing, I do have to admit that there were certain parts in this book that I was worried about Shelby, she goes through some really hard things, but she's able to stay strong and comes through them okay. 

Don't miss this great book by Jennifer Moore!
