Sold into Marriage 5* star review from author Haythem Bastawy - A Military Republic
A Beautiful Story
I was not sure when I first started reading this book, I don't know why really, maybe because I have not read romance for a long time. I've found the book an absolute joy to read. I mainly read on the way to work and back and it was very hard sometimes to stop reading to get off the bus. The relationship between Lord Sebastian and Isabel was very romantic with so many different angles and it was beautiful watching both characters growing more fond of eachother everyday. I've found Maxi Shelton very insightful into male psyche, it is not very often when one comes across a female writer who knows how a man thinks. Overall very entertaining and totally recommend.
