I loved the fiery passion that Khalil has, but sadly his passion for the throne is overshadowed with the thoughts of revenge and of course this made him the type of hero you can only have luke warm feelings for, but it is only for a certain period on the book , because as all fans of Harlequin Presents books know, there is always something or someone that will turn the person around. And that person was Elena, beautiful, smart and always seeing the side of a person they attempt to hide from the world. I loved Elena to bits! The author took me on a truly remarkable journey of how one man finds himself willing to fight for what he believes is his, and the one woman who let's him finally see the truth shine out from the revenge-darkness that his mind has become.
I am taking away a message of life has it's way of guiding us on the wrong path, but it's in order to find the right one. The trick of course is to not miss the right turnoff to take whilst on that wrong path, because the road up ahead might not bring along another turnoff to the road where the your calling is waiting for you. I highly recommend this read for all fans of a excellent, deeply emotional Sheikh romance.
Kate Hewitt is simply one of the most remarkable author 's of all time and with each book her writing just get's better and better! Jul 06, Jenny rated it it was ok Shelves: heroine-i-adore. I loved loved the virginal super sweet heroine but unfortunately hero was too cheesy and soft and nice!
As a result there was zero angst and weak chemistry. View all 4 comments.

What a wonderful, delightful book by Kate Hewitt. Loved it from the first page. Queen Elena arrived in Kadar to marry the Sheikh to save two crowns. His and hers. A marriage of convenience. Only one flaw in that plan she was whisked away by another into the desert to stop the marriage because he was the true ruler of Kadar.
In his eyes.
Two people had learned not to trust, that love was a weakness. At a young age, they both had been ripped apart emotionally by circumstances. Khalil banished and What a wonderful, delightful book by Kate Hewitt. Khalil banished and shamed at such a tender age only had one mission to take back what was his. The crown of Kadar as their rightful ruler, yet started to fall for this young Queen, who was strong, determined to save her own crown from those within who wanted her gone.

This is a story of learning to trust, rely on each other and how love was a strength, teaching each other that support and belief in each other can see one through so much and come out the other side a better person and the future isn't always what you think it is. It was an amazing journey. Elena finally learned to let go and feel, because for so long she had to show no weakness, had to be strong, couldn't have a life outside of her royal life of duty.
Can't wait to read the second book - Commanded by the Sheikh.

It is a well written with a gripping storyline set among the remote, hot desert of Kadar. Both main characters of the story are likable with both Elena and Khalil have put their people on priority over their own needs. It may sound unbelievable but this is what they willing to sacrifice for their people.
Overall, it is an enjoyable read for me. Aug 10, Beyond the Pages rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. What a refreshingly different kind of story. I loved it Oh how my heart broke for Khalil. His was a bittersweet end even though he got a beautiful blessing in Elena. How devastating to find out that everything he believed was a lie. Still, I cannot help but hope for some greater reward to befall these two people who lost so very much.
I am glad they found each other. I got my happily ever after, but I want more for them. And as for Aziz, his story intrigues me. Bring it What a refreshingly different kind of story. Bring it on!

Rating: 4. Aug 08, Ipshita Ranjana rated it really liked it. Captured by the Sheikh by Kate Hewitt is a well written romance around the kidnapping trope. The forbidden romance between Khalil and Elena is enjoyable due to the amazing chemistry they share. This is one of the few romances where both the hero and heroine are similar in their nature and have so much in common.
They both are different in their own way but are not polar opposite as it generally happens in romance. Read More. Oct 17, Susan in Perthshire rated it liked it. I found this to be a really nice story with engaging characters who worked their way through all of their difficulties and helped each other after a lifetime of loneliness.
I really like Khalil and Elena and although it took him in particular a long time to give in to the idea of loving Elena - it was an understandable reluctance. I disliked the ending - not the fact that he discovered he actually had no claim but that we were not given an insight into how he and Elena would creat a new life on I found this to be a really nice story with engaging characters who worked their way through all of their difficulties and helped each other after a lifetime of loneliness.
I disliked the ending - not the fact that he discovered he actually had no claim but that we were not given an insight into how he and Elena would creat a new life on Thalia which would have given him back a goal and an identity as well the happiness he deserved with Elena and a family.

I found that really disappointing so have given 3 stars instead of 4. The aunts secret came too close to the end of the story, also her focus on only happy things was annoying made her a shallow character about life and her denability about her nephews life mission n how her secret would affect him.
Aug 27, TashNz rated it it was amazing. I love dramatic and exciting beginnings and with an opening such as "Something's Wrong" I was captured - just like Elena! Queen of Thallia! Expecting to meet her fiancee, Elena is instead whisked away by Sheikh Khalil al Bakir, not before a dramatic attempt at escape which ends with both rolling around on the desert runway. Khalil intends to hold Elena captive for four days - long enough to stop her from marrying her fiancee which will also stop Elena's fiancee being crowned ruling Sheikh.

Khalil believes heart and soul he is the rightful ruler and kidnapping Elena is part of his plan to become the ruling Sheikh. Khalil doesnt realise Elena has her reasons for marrying Aziz, and desperate to remain queen of her people Elena attempts to be rescued. It's impossible though and although she's young, Elena has a wise head on her shoulders. Proving to Elena Khalil is not some barbaric warlord is a mission in itself. It also surprises Elena, she's been kidnapped and held in the neverending desert but has all the comforts of home.
During their time together the last thing Khalil expects is to have feelings for Elena Khalil was one of the best Sheikhs I'd read. He was dark and dangerous, strong and fearless, dashingly sexy, full of pride and very passionate about his people and his reasons for being ruling Sheikh. Although raised American, he's at home in the desert and had grown into a respected leader of his mothers people. Elena brings out a charming and witty side of himself and Khalil is worried about these feelings he's developing.
Elena was every inch the queen, a young queen but with a wise head. She thought before she acted, she showed grace of a queen and the tenacity of a warrior. Her plan was always to escape but she tried to plan well given she was in the desert and death was around every corner. Expecting barbaric treatment Elena was surprised when she was treated as a queen and with respect.
Elena is at odds with her heart when she realises Khalil is almost the first friend she has ever had in her sheltered life. Her giving heart and compassionate soul recognises Khalil as a man of pride. Elena and Khalil hadfantastic conversations which I well enjoyed. They were witty and throughly enjoyable. I loved their banter and their serious moments and their indepth discussions on war. Captured by the Sheikh is an exceptionally exciting and gripping story.
Khalil's race to the crown had me on the edge of my seat. I had breathless moments, for example, when Elena looking up to find Khalil pointing a gun at her and shooting My heart litterally stopped while I turned the page!
