Vane does it again with The Sheik Retold! The Shiek Retold is a retelling of E.M. Hull’s 1919 production of The Sheik. Taking away some of the original of the book including animal cruelty and rape, she has transformed this story into a hot and spicy read. Reading it, we get to know the two characters involved, including that of Diana who is feisty, but is a girl in a world where men tend to be more powerful. It doesn’t stop her until she meets the man who will change everything for her. Boy does he change it! *Fans self* Victoria not only proves to be an excellent story writer, but a a servant in rewriting the tales of others. If you like romance with lots of hot scenes, great characters, an amazing story then you will enjoy The Sheik Retold.

“I am what you have made me— as hard as yourself— so how can you quarrel with the result? It is illogical. My life is now my own to deal with, and I will deal with it exactly as I wish. I will do what I choose when and how I choose, and I will never again obey any will but my own.”

“There will be inquiries.” I choked out. “I am not such a nonentity that nothing will be done when I am missed and you will pay for what you have done.”
“Pay?” His amused look sent a cold feeling of dread through me. “I have already paid… in gold that matches your hair, my gazelle. Besides,” he continued, “the French Government has no jurisdiction over me. There is no authority here above my own.”
My trepidation was growing more terrible every passing moment. “Why have you brought me here?”
“Why have I brought you here?” He repeated with a slow and heated appraisal that made me acutely, almost painfully, conscious of my sex. “Bon Dieu! Are you not woman enough to know?”Chapter One Excerpt Link: http://www.victoriavane.
