Book Blurb:

Life has taught Prince Vereham al a’Karim bin Hakar to control his emotions. Duty to his kingdom drives the enigmatic sheikh.

But one unexpected, intensely sexy encounter with inexperienced Samantha McLellan shakes Vere’s steely control. And when he discovers that Sam could be betraying his country, he decides to blackmail her–into being his mistress.

My Thoughts:

Well when I first started reading this book, I actually thought this was the second on the series, but is the last one, since there all different stories is ok, that I jumped the others.
Vereham has some well formed thoughts about how live and what to do in every situation and is kinda sad, because he doesn’t get a very good life, for him is all about duty and his job as sheikh, so one moment, a shared kiss changed everything. I didn’t really liked Vere from the first time I read about his strange considerations for his life.
I liked Sam, she has chosen a very hard occupation and accepted an even more difficult place to work. In a country where most men think the all the women should stay at home and take care of family.
She tried to make her work better and forget about that stolen kiss, but everything changed when Vere started thinking she was a spy and after a very steamy night on the desert he decided to make her a mistress for his pleasure only.
The book is interesting, but I know some people has issues with forced relationship and even thoughts about slaves, so beware that these is a bit more forceful than the regular, but there are no sexual assault.

Book Blurb:

Petra is betrothed–to rich, eligible Sheikh Rashid. But she plans to ruin her reputation so Rashid won’t want her. Blaize, a fellow guest at her hotel, agrees to be Petra’s pretend lover–though soon he’s taken her virginity!

Then Petra makes a shocking discovery. Blaize is actually none other than the man she’s supposed to be marrying–Sheikh Rashid!

My Thoughts:

I don’t about you guys but I feel in love with Penny Jordan’s books since the very first one and was so sad when I first heard that she passed away on new years. 
 
So with that thought in mind I decided to read some of her books during this years. My first choice was her sheik’s series, because (A) I love these different and very alpha male, (B) those are one of my first harlequin books. Very special, right?
 
The book is about a betrothed couple. Petra decides to accept her grandfather invitation and spend some time on her family country. And there she hears a strange piece of information about a supposed marriage with bachelor Rashid, super rich and sexy guy.
 
So Petra decides to destroy her reputation but she did picked the perfect guy, because she is actually dating Rachid, except she doesn’t know that’s him.
 
That’s a story about fairytale comes true and all those things, because he’s almost a prince. The way he treats her is so sweet considering he’s definily alpha male. Just loved.
