Current work: Medical (and ohhh, I need a holiday)
Listening to: Corelli (yup, stress puppy)
Reading: next on TBR
Today’s the end of term. Start of the summer holidays. I’m looking forward to them as I enjoy my children’s company. And I am soooo looking forward to a week away and a week pottering (aka doing pics for a book, but I haven’t told DH that, yet…). Need to work smart, though, as I want this book off my desk before we go away. (Otherwise I will be fretting and it will spoil my break. Working on our family holiday is forbidden. Might have to stretch a point, this year.)
Son decided to have a completely new haircut yesterday. Suddenly my little boy looks like a teenager. (OK, OK. Not so little. He’s an inch taller than I am, now, so I have to admit it. I’m taking great pleasure in watching him do to his father what he used to do to me – stands beside him and then silently rises onto tiptoe. Cue ‘OMG’ look on parental face on sudden realisation of just how tall son is.)
Had a lovely review from Pink Heart Society Reviews for Surrender to the Playboy Sheikh:
From the talented pen of Kate Hardy comes an exciting new novel for Harlequin Presents that will just leave you breathless! Written with her trademark warmth and assurance, Surrender to the Playboy Sheikh is one book you just have to read in a single sitting!
Lily Finch stopped believing in happy-ever-after after her husband betrayed her and shattered her heart into tiny little pieces. She doesn't want a relationship and she certainly has got no plans to put her heart on the line and let another man walk all over her. Instead, she has chosen to put all of her energies and time into making her culinary business, Amazing Tastes, a huge success. But little does Lily know that Sheikh Karim al-Hassan wants more from Lily than just her food - he's determined to get her into bed and what the desert king wants, he always gets!
Karim's reputation has always been that of a vacuous playboy who enjoys dating a wide selection of leggy blondes and partying hard. Yet Karim's priorities changed drastically after the death of his brother Tariq. Karim knows that he should stay away from Lily and instead pay court to an Arab princess and not a divorced English woman. But how can he resist Lily when he's fallen head over heels in love with her?
You can never go wrong with a Kate Hardy novel and Surrender to the Playboy Sheikh is certainly one of her best! Realistic characters, heartwarming drama, passionate emotion, tender love scenes and wonderful romance combine to make Kate Hardy's first Sheikh novel a book that will fly straight to your keeper shelves!
Thank you, Julie Bonello, for making my day.
