He’s competing for her hand

And her freedom…

Held captive by her tyrannical Sultan father, Princess Zorahaida lives an isolated life. A tournament is held and Jasim ibn Ismail, a handsome knight in arms, claims his prize: Zorahaida’s hand in marriage! Political reasons must be driving his offer – he’s certainly not offering love. Should Zorahaida grasp the tantalising taste of freedom marrying the impulsive knight would gift her…?

I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

Set in medieval Europe this the third book in the Princesses of Alhambra series but reads well as a standalone. Princess Zorahaida is a virtual prisoner in her father’s castle in Medieval Spain.

Jasim is a knight whose family has a history with the Sultan. He enters a tournament to bring him into the Sultan’s orbit and wins, but not the prize he expects.

This is an atmospheric story with vibrant historical characters and detail. There is an undercurrent of danger in this story, and poignancy about Zorahaida’s abuse by her father.

The romance between Jasim and Zorahaida is passionate, but the emotion takes a while to develop, as both have political agendas and trust issues.

An engaging historical romance.
