Princess Katharine has always been destined for a political marriage. Her heart heavy, she prepares to meet her future husband-the man whisperers in his royal kingdom call The Beast of Hajar…
…and the Scarred Sheikh…
Concealing his disfigurement from public scrutiny, Sheikh Zahir rules his country from within the castle walls, allowing no one in. Until duty demands he carry on the Hajar family dynasty and allow his new bride to cross the threshold.
Zahir expects Katharine to flee at first sight. Yet her unflinching gaze fires Zahir’s blood, and their attraction burns hotter than the scorching desert sands
Beauty and the Beast with a Maisey Yates Spin, and boy is she ever good at spinning us a wonderfully engaging romance.
Sheikh Zahir once a playboy is now a shell of his former self having dodged death following a bomb blast that killed his family and left him badly disfigured. He suffers for PTSD and relates to himself as being a beast of Hajar. Enter Princess Katherine a strong woman bound by duty and protocol; she approaches Zahir with an offer of an arranged marriage to protect her brother’s right to succession.
Tormented Zahir and resolute Katherine are perfect for each other, what starts out as a political match up turns in to so much more for both of them. Katherine challenges Zahir at every turn; she helps him face his demons and believe in himself again.
Hajar’s Hidden Legacy had all the hallmarks of Maisey Yates writing that we have come to love and expect – great characters, vivid storytelling and a deeply emotional and compelling romance.
With a scarred Hero and loyal heroine this story reminds us to “Look not with the eyes but with the heart”. A recommended read.
