PRICE OF THIEVES by Tamelia Tumlin
Cheyenne Lawson needs to get arrested in order to get her son what he needs. When a man leaves an expensive ring on the table she seizes the opportunity. But her plan backfires when she's bailed out of jail by the owner of the ring. He just happens to be a very handsome Arabian prince. Prince Kareem bin Ishmail doesn't want a wife but he needs one in order give the people of his country stability. He is suppose to marry a woman from his country but doesn't wish to do that. So he make a proposal to Cheyenne that she can't refuse, life in prison in his desert country or a temporary marriage. As they get to know each other they find they are very drawn to one another. Cheyenne Lawson not only stole the prince's ring, she just may have stolen his heart too.
This was a great little story. Although not a 'Christian' story it was filled with lots of great characters and some great romantic tension and zippy dialog. The reason for stealing the ring didn't even seem reasonable to me but after all it is fiction. I totally loved the prince. He was a kind and chivalrous person. Cheyenne was a great character. Such a free spirit with a bubbly personality. If you enjoy a good clean story filled with great characters then you would enjoy Prince of Thieves.
