The Sheik Retold by Victoria Vane Review & Giveaway

The Desert Was Never Hotter...

Pride and passion vie for supremacy in this steamy re-telling of E.M. Hull's romance classic.

A haughty young heiress for whom the world is a playground…A savage son of the Sahara who knows no law but his own…When pride and passion vie for supremacy, blistering desert days are nothing compared to sizzling Sahara nights…

** NOTE** Due to differing copyright laws, this book is currently only available in the US, Canada, Australia, Japan and India. 

I've read Vane's books before and fell in love with them.  She has a knack for creating memorable characters that are easy to relate to.  It's no surprise that I loved The Sheik Retold.  I didn't read the original version by E.M. Hull, so I have no comparison.  

Diana is a no worry heiress who wants to go on an adventure in the desert.  The time is around the nineteen twenties and the story is set in Africa.  She's warned that she should be careful and take more than just a guide, but she's stubborn and determined to show that she can take care of herself.  

Then she is taken captive by a sheik, Ahmed.  Ahmed is a man's man and does what he wants, when he wants.  He makes his own rules and bends to know one.  He wants Diana and makes no pretense about it.  He is a fair man though, and Diana does some growing up quick.  There are some sizzling hot love scenes as well as beautiful depictions of the time and place.  If you enjoy memorable, sizzling hot, page-turning romance, you'll definitely want to pick up The Sheik Retold!

  1. Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Wendy. I'm so glad you enjoyed THE SHEIK REOLD. :-)
    Warmest regards, Victoria Vane


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
