REVIEW: His Defiant Desert Queen by Jane Porter

Posted February 16th, 2015 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Presents / 8 comments

His Defiant Desert Queen by Jane Porter is the second part in The Disgraced Copelands series. This was a well written His-Defiant-Desert-Queenromance with a mixture of revenge and marriage of convenience tropes.

Sheikh Mikael finds the perfect oppurtunity to take a perfect revenge against his family’s destruction when he catches notorious model Jemma Copeland flaunting Saidia’s laws—and her body—in his desert.

With her life shattered by the scandal that rocked her family, Jemma needed that modeling job. She didn’t know that she was breaking the law! But Mikael outrageous proposal: imprisonment or marriage pushes her beyond shock…to utter fury. If he expects her to be a meek, pliable bride, this arrogant sheikh has another think coming!

His Defiant Desert Queen has two of my favorite tropes and therefore I enjoyed the story. The chemistry between the characters worked really well too.The story was well written and set up in wonderful locales.

Mikael is a autocratic hero with qualities an alpha hero generally has. If you don’t like over the top alphas then you may not like him. Jemma is a sweet heroine who stands up to the hero whenever she can. She isn’t given much choice in the marriage as it is either face prison for seven years or marriage. I would categorize her as a damsel in distress type of heroine who to her credit tries to resist as much as she can.

Though I liked His Defiant Desert Queen by Jane Porter, having read the authors backlist I had very high expectations for this book. Overall, The romance is hot, passionate and the love scenes are probably one of the best things in the story.
