In the story, we see a few cultural things. We meet the heroine whose stepfather was once a prince of a sheikh but was disowned for marrying the heroine's mother. They both have a good relationship, that of a doting dad and daughter. The daughter wants to become independent but the father wants to keep his precious daughter at home. Just when the daughter goes off, the family of the hero who is also the nephew of the heroine's stepfather come forward to acknowledge the marriage of her stepfather and that the heroine will marry the hero. However, the heroine has heard rumors of the hero and his sexual exploits, his behavior towards women, and doesn't want to marry him. Hero wants to marry the heroine, just so you know. The stepfather also provides some interesting metaphors about the hero. But the mother of the heroine insists that she go to the stepfather's home country and see them. I can't believe that the woman said that passive romances are boring. There is nothing wrong with them. People just have different taste on how a romance should be. The heroine does handle herself well when meeting the people, especially the sheikha because she asks what English men like and the heroine replies that everyone has their own taste. That was good answer. The heroine realizes the game played and accepts the native clothing, which I think is nice. I don't like the servant, because she says, "Unlike western women, we do not play with women," . I felt rather insulted by what she said because not all women in the West are like that but she seems to act very narrowed minded. I do like how she describes why the women wear the clothing. Then the heroine gets lost in the castle and meets the hero. The first meeting is horrible because the hero is insulted by the heroine rejecting the proposal in marriage even though in her culture it's understandable because SHE HAS NEVER MET THE GUY! He practically molests her till she gets away and demands that the servant help her get away. The servant instead places a hypnosis incense towards the servant and is married to the hero against her acknowledgement and will. I don't like that the heroine didn't fight him when the effects of the drug wore off. She does make some interesting points. Plus, there were interesting hints that the hero displayed but I didn't like the first night. Plus, how the servant acted saying that the heroine should eat in order to have a healthy baby BOY. It could be a girl. I did like that the heroine took matters into her own hands and went off riding to be free. It's when the Hero goes after her that we all learn something interesting about the hero that did win some points for me. It was so funny. I'm impressed with him holding out for long. They start to connect till some people that both the hero and the heroine know come by and the heroine catches the hero in a locked and kissed embrace with the other woman. I was so glad that she left with the other man. Then the hero comes after her. The love confessions go a little quick for my taste, but I do like the expression that the hero makes when he confesses his woman. The heroine does sound a bit haughty at the end. It was an okay romance.
