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.
