I must say that I was astounded that the hero was able to get so much information on the heroine's fiancee of his sideways woman and dirty dealings with real estate in such a short amount of time but I guess for a sheikh who is protective of a family "friend", one will do what they can in order to protect that friend. However, I also don't blame the heroine for getting mad at the hero, I mean no woman wants that kind of surprise about the man she is marrying, yet she picks herself up and goes searching for a new job (fiancee was also boss). When the heroine tells the hero everything and proceeds to leave, the hero comes up with a job proposal in order to make her stay. Now, here is something that surprised me is that the hero believed that the heroine and the ex-fiancee had slept together, I mean looking at the time and era of when they were, that would have been unlikely. Plus, he stands on an assumption that he made himself, there was no hard evidence from the two people that they were sleeping together. Plus, this is all brought up because his brother (who was being a charming man) was telling her to not telling the "desert hawk" sweep her away. It's from then on, the hero starts taking cold showers. When the heroine comes the hero's country, she finds some things in the society that the women there wish to have and don't wish to be expected to do: they want to go to college and they don't want their expectation to be a mother only. I do love the reason the heroine puts so much effort in to make her job be seen as amazing, so she can show that women are capable of doing just as hard work as the men. Now, here I don't like the hero. First, he brings her to a horse track that will attract foreign visitors and asks for her opinion. When she gives her negative opinion with good reason, he blows up, saying the conversation is over. Suddenly, they have sex and the hero finds out the truth of the heroine's departed innocence and says they will marry. The heroine, distressed from the hero's comment leaves in the car that has her lose points with the staff because women aren't allowed to drive. The heroine then leaves and the hero doesn't come after for a while. They meet and have a civil conversation which leads to the heroine getting her job, at least that's what both the heroine and I thought. Yet, to the hero, it was a marriage proposal. That was a terrible marriage proposal. The ending was okay.
