Aly Percy is her family's ugly duckling, and she's never been allowed to forget it. So she knows better than to imagine that Cup Companion Arif al Najimi's blue gaze holds anything but contempt for her as a woman, or ever will. But if he's offering to show her just how wild one night with him can be, wouldn't she be a fool to turn down his charity? She may never get another offer like this one.
Arif al Najimi isn't sure why he's dreaming about the little scientist who's so determined to take crazy risks for the sake of her research into the endangered turtles of his country. But as luck would have it, he's going to get the chance to do a little research of his own…into the question of why Aly believes her own negative publicity about how desirable she is—and how hard it will be to convince her of the truth.
Erin: The blurb is what caught my attention to Her Royal Protector. I’ve never read anything by Alexandra Sellers before and when I read the blurb, I knew I wanted to give this one a try. This was a sweet, (very sweet) light (VERY light) read and while it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, it was a nice read.
I really liked that the story took place in a different setting than I’m used to, and that Aly Percy, our heroine, was a smart, confident scientist. I was completely engaged in the rare turtle research and aspect of the story. The love story between Arif al Najimi wasn’t quite as interesting, but it was pleasant enough. Just to let you know, there is VERY little steam in this book. There is some sexual tension, but as for outright smut, you won’t find it here. I don’t need lots of sex in my romance books, but I do like to feel chemistry between the two main characters, and to be honest, there wasn’t a lot of that going on in Her Royal Protector. The scenery and setting of the story is what made this for me, and if you like your romances on the light side, I’d definitely recommend you give this one a chance.
