When the Sheikh comes to town Determined to confront the father who abandoned her Liyah accepts the position of chambermaid at his exclusive Chatsfield Hotel London Liyah must serve VIP visitor Sheikh Sayed bin Falah al Zeena and see to his every whim and those of his harem With his engagement irrevocably and publicly broken all Sayed wants is to cast off the shackles of duty and embrace t. cue Barry White music Sayed's body was so close his outer robes brushed her Her breath came out in a shocked gasp I'm waiting for the infomercial advertising an erotic Snuggie I'll be the first one to orderSince I can not account for any sort of cultural accuracy I will skip right on past how correct the story representation was and get right to the heart of the matter WHERE was the harem There was a harem mentioned in the book's synopsis I think that was about the same amount of mention in the book as well I was wanting to see a man who had a bunch of women at his beck and call Because I'm weird like that It sounded kind of cool though the idea of a story where a man has a ton of women but notices one who isn't rolling with his crew Right This man wasn't a player He didn't even really have pimp skills Aaliyah called him an alpha but I didn't see it outside of a few you will not uestion me moments He was just a normal nice and hot guy who happened to be good in the bedroom Hey I'm not complaining I look for these types of men in stories because they are rare breedsbut I think I was expecting something else completely The guy hadn't had sex in 3 years What Where was that harem againAnyway back to the story Sheikh's Scandal was surprisingly a lot of fun This couple bonded over shots alcohol not gunfire and conversation I liked how down to earth their coupling was Even though there was a very strange need you now even though I just met you vibe to start these two took some time to laugh it up and get to know each other even as they were looking at moving forward to doing the horizontal bed dance I'm sure at least a few of us can relate to that exact scene Those are some fun times indeed Drinks make people looser Who knew Oh wait we all did I'm writing a review for the publisher so it's probably not in my best interest to mention that I associate Harleuin presents books with standard cheese of the month But in Sheikh's defense this actually worked in the book's favor since I knew going into the read to expect a fair amount of cheese The cheese didn't bother me Fun times can cancel out some of the predictability Plus a little cheese can add to the entertainment factor I like the idea of having a drinking game every time the words big hands or big body are used She'd never heard of brown fire before used to describe Sayed's eyesNeither had I Because fire isn't ever brown Electric shocks had gone straight to his instant erection Is this supposed to be a good thing It actually sounds uite painful to me I've never had sex in an elevator she admitted like it was a deep dark even shameful secret Neither have I I also haven't had sex on a roller coaster OR on the back of a horse I FEEL SO ASHAMED Do I get points back for having had sex on top of a hay bale stack or on top of a police car You were smoother than jazzSmoother than jazz ReallyShe shrugged No music is smootherPerhaps I should be happy you didn't compare me to custard Yep They did go there Desire riding him harder than a runaway camel in the desert No matter how many times I read that sentence it comes out sounding perverted in my head and I picture the camel riding the guy See It was all kind of amusingAll kidding aside the story was sweet and held my interest For what it was I liked the read The basic theme of falling for a man himself and not his power and position is a love story that will resonate with many readers I would want to try out this theme again sometime but ONLY if there's a harem present Thanks Ash for jumping in and reading with me This book provided from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All uotes taken from the pre published version and may be altered or omitted from the final copy

CHARACTERS Sheikh's Scandal

Sheikh's ScandalHe desires and needs that only one woman can satisfy Sayed knows Liyah’s blood is heated by the same desert sands as his own making her irresistible But could their one night together result in scandal for the proud Sheikh Welcome to The Chatsfield London Collect all titles in The Chatsfield London miniseriesSheikh's Scandal by USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Lucy MonroePlayboy's Lesson by US. This is a good start to the Chatsfield stories There are 8 books in the series written by different Harleuin authors The blurb of the book pretty much sums up what the story is about but it is slightly misleading in that the Sheikh is supposed to be bringing a harem I think it is important to the character and integrity of the Sheikh that this matter is cleared up Yes rooms are set aside for the harem but in fact the sheikh doesn’t have a harem and has been celibate since the announcement of his engagement 3 years ago The rooms are set aside for his fiancée’s staff and other administrative staff the Sheik may have with himAlthough Sayed is attracted to Liyah he resists temptation because he believes in staying faithful to his fiancée who is very soon to become his wife BUT said fiancée runs off with another man effectively breaking the engagement so Sayed sees no reason to deny himself especially as he finds Liyah in his ex fiancée’s room drinking Liyah is trying to drown her sorrows because her ‘father’ has denied all knowledge of knowing her mother refused to acknowledge her as his daughter and called her a liar Sayed and Liyah decide to spend the night together with no strings attached but unfortunately in their rush they do not use protection a couple of times meaning Liyah could be pregnant so making it necessary that she travels back home with him until they discover if their night of passion brings conseuencesI really like Lucy Monroe and she is one of my Harleuin auto buy authors she tells a good story which is well written and easy to read Although this storyplot has been told many times in Harleuin Land Ms Monroe still managed to make it an interesting and enjoyable readSo it is well worth picking it up making yourself nice and comfy with a glass of wine and lose yourself in reading all about The Chatsfield Sayed and LiyahI am looking forward to reading the next Chatsfield story Playboy's Lesson by Melanie Milburne which is due for release in May of this year
