The Sheikh’s Christmas Conquest by Sharon Kendrick

Summoned by the sheikh! 
Sheikh Saladin Al Mektala isn't used to being disobeyed. Incomprehensibly, the woman he summoned to help his favorite mare—the best horse "whisperer" in the world—turned his generous offer down! So he takes matters into his own hands. 
The snow is falling, the fire is roaring and the mince pies are in the oven when innocent Olivia Miller finds a darkly handsome and physically compelling man on her doorstep… The sheikh she dared to refuse is here to whisk her off to his kingdom—and this time he won't take no for an answer! 
A passionate read for Christmas nights!

So, the Presents imprint is known for its larger-than-life heroes but sadly this one just didn’t work for me. Saladin just kind of grated on my nerves. He’s in your face and pushy and his approach just crawled under my skin. Olivia did pique my interest but once I figured out her deal, the book fell flat and, sadly, this one became a DNF.

If The Sheikh’s Christmas Conquest was turned into a movie, Sharon Kendrick has cast these two stars to play the main characters.
In a movie version of the book, I’d like Saladin to be played by the man who is currently one of England’s biggest heart-throbs.  He’s actually Irish, but he’s a great actor and I think he’d make a brilliant Sheikh.  Allow me to introduce you to Aiden Turner... 
Olivia should be played by Isla Fisher, who is an engaging actress with exactly the same hair color as Livvy.  She’s best known for playing comedy but I think she has a great range and could easily do justice to my wounded heroine, who’s had such a tough time.
