REVIEW: Bride Behind the Desert Veil by Abby Green

Posted April 28th, 2021 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, HJ Recommends, Presents, Review / 0 comments


Bride Behind the Desert Veil by Abby Green is a stunning sheikh marriage of convenience romance.

Sheikh Sharif is floored when his wife is revealed to be the unforgettable, mystery woman he met in the desert. Princess Liyah is stunned when she arrives for her arranged marriage to find the man who shattered her in the best ways standing before her at the altar.

Sharif is honouring a diplomatic agreement between his and the neighbouring country. He has no desire to have a proper marriage and envisions it to be in name only. Business is booming now that his brothers have settled down and he plans to use his wife as his side piece and project respectability. He didn’t plan for her to cause havoc by getting under his skin. Sharif’s doesn’t need any distractions from his lifelong motivation to destroy the business his father created bit by bit until there’s nothing left.

Abby Green’s writing style when a Sheikh is involved is so aesthetic. The desert really comes alive. I felt like I was watching Liyah’s peregrine falcon in the sky. From the hot desert sands to quickly switching over to Sharif’s cold corporate Manhattan life Liyah wakens Sharif from his lifelong motivation and he starts to see the world clearer with the help of Liyah’s innocent observations and genuine appreciation of the little things. Filled with expressive dialogue, vivid descriptions and picturesque landscapes both desert and city, I love Abby’s writing.

The Marchetti Dynasty trilogy is brought to its conclusion with Sharif and Liyah’s story. Maggie, Nikos, Zoe and Mak’s are well mentioned and the women welcome Liyah into the fold. I really enjoyed this arranged marriage story, both Sharif and Liyah were likeable and I liked Liyah’s growth and how she aroused Sharif from his lifelong drive for revenge. Highly recommended and enjoyed.
