UNDRESSED BY THE BOSS - Susan Stephens, Nicola Marsh, Anna Cleary
Sheikh Boss, Hot Desert Nights Casey Michaels has a new job in the desert. But, faced with her gorgeous boss’s potent sexuality, she suddenly feels out of her depth… Sheikh Rafik al Rafar knows an inexperienced woman when he sees one, and in the sultry heat of the desert he begins her sensual awakening. But royal duty is never far from their door…
Review: Again Susan Stephens charms her readers with a very steamy and sexy Sheikh Boss, Hotel Desert Nights.Sheikh Rafik (Raffa as he’s fondly called by Casey) is immediately drawn to the woman he’s sent for from England to help market his country.
Casey Michaels he realizes almost immediately is innocent however she amazes him with her business sense. Life has taught him many lessons and duty to his country is the most important thing in his life. However, she charms him and he’s drawn to her and fights it every step of the way.
Casey Michaels is determined to prove herself and win not only the marketing job but earn the respect of her employer, the sheikh. However, she as well doesn’t count on the intense attraction she feels towards him. She’s there to impress and impress she does when she takes on a charity auction, the proceeds to benefit the desert inhabitants. As she finally spends time in the desert, every thing heats up and not only the weather. Seeing Raffa in his own element with his people makes him more human, and not the playboy sheikh the press makes him out to be but a man of “simple tastes”.
Their love story was for the most part set in the desert, full of sensual tension until they make love and then everything becomes complicated for them both. Sadness like every journey takes place in the form of Casey realizing she must walk away only to have Raffa realize how important she was to him. Sheikh Boss, Hot Desert Nights was just a sweet and beautiful journey in finding happiness.
Behind the book from author’s website:
"I couldn’t resist another visit into the desert to unravel the secrets that lie behind the silken veil. I took a younger sheikh for this romantic adventure- a ruthless bad boy on the cusp of greatness, and gave him a determined young woman to go head to head with- in business, and in bed.
It was great to see Casey Michaels growing in confidence and in understanding of a very different culture- not to mention learning how to handle this dark and dangerous alpha male. I had the best time writing the book and hope you enjoy your journey behind the silken veil…" S. Stephens
The Boss’s Bedroom Agenda The instant Beth Walker comes face-to-face with her new boss – tall, tanned and incredibly toned Aidan Voss – they can’t take their eyes off one another. CEO Aidan has one rule of business: keep his personal life out of the office! But he’s moved Beth to the top of his to-do list…
Unfortunately I haven’t had the opportunity to read Nicola’s The Boss’s Bedroom Agenda. However, I can only guess it was incredible, just like the author because she has made me laugh, cry, smile with everything I’ve ever read of hers. I recently finished Sex, Gossip and Rock and Roll and loved it!
Taken by the Maverick Millionaire Cate Summerfield never meant to eavesdrop. But now she knows too much and powerful, brilliant Tom Russell must stop her from exposing details of an important deal. He’ll keep Cate very close – seducing the beautiful blonde will be no hardship at all!
Review: Anna Cleary has written an extremely, sensual and emotional-packed book which will make one forget whatever it was they were doing before they began reading Taken by the Maverick Millionaire. This is Anna’s second book set in beautiful Sydney which features the newspaper industry. It’s about secrets, corporate takeovers, a fake relationship which results in a rocky romantic journey for Cate Summerfield and Tom Russell.
Tom Russell, the proud and handsome son of the Russell Newspaper dynasty finds himself with three problems……his father has passed away leaving his fortune to charity, if a secret merger doesn’t happen he’ll loose his business and on top of that, the day of the funeral a rival newspaper woman overhears the secret details of that merger. What’s he going to do? He promises to give Cate Summerfield the scoop of the year if she’ll stay with him, pretend to be his mistress until the merger is complete.
Cate Summerfield comes from a middle class family, she’s has two loves, her ailing Grandmother and the desire to make her proud by becoming a successful newspaper woman. She’s recently had one bad relationship and it caused her Gran to suffer a heart attack when they were arguing beside her hospital bed. When Cate is given the chance to cover the Russell funeral and write the story, she’s over the moon. What she doesn’t count on is overhearing a discussion between Olivia West (publicist) and Tom who were making plans for a secret merger and if Cate scoops the story, it would take the Russell dynasty down! What she also doesn’t count on is her attraction for Tom and when she agrees to stay with him, her life if thrown into turmoil.
Both Tom and Cate have secrets and Taken by the Maverick Millionaire allows the reader to take their journey in a beautiful country, see the bond they form, see how they heal each other in the process, and in the end see how they learn to trust and declare their love for each other. It's quite an emotional and spirited love story; one that would light up any alpha's soul!
