Synopsis
How deep into the darkness will she have to go to help bring him into the light?

Oil baronness Lily Harkness isn’t so much steel magnolia as titanium cactus. She’s used to living in a man’s world and when she plays, she plays to win. She wants exclusive oil rights to ensure her company remains at the top and she’s not walking away empty handed.

Sheikh Isma’il al Zahara rules his country his way. Always in command, he has his own plans for his country’s oil and it’s not just about the money. But he’s intrigued by the buttoned up business woman who’s come to his country to strike a deal. He can’t help but wonder what’s beneath her icy facade.

Lily’s desires are buried down deep, but her attraction to Isma’il is too strong to deny. Will seducing the sheikh cost Lily her body and her soul?

My Review

Sheikh Isma’il Zahara has plans for his country, and he knows his people and will do whatever it takes to stay in command and do what is good, which is why he must always be in control. He has plans for his country’s oil, and is looking for someone that will help and aid his country. Lily Harkness, is a CEO and businesswoman, she gets the job done, and has dealt with many arrogant men, but she isn’t ready for this commanding sheikh who rattles her. Lily has desires that she hides even from herself, she has a dangerous past that she wouldn’t dare reveal to anyone, but Isma’il shows her desire and a seduction so deep he takes control of her heart and soul…but will she be able to do the same with this Shekih that exudes power and command…

Never Seduce A Sheikh is a contemporary romance, and deals with quite a bit of some darker issues that if you are looking for a light read, this isn’t it. It has some darker elements that really suck the reader in and make you think about certain issues. In the beginning of the story, its all about business and transactions and agreements, the Shekih shows Lily that there is more to life than a contract. Lily is fully invested in gaining this oil agreement, so she doesn’t see the bond forming between them until she can’t resist him. Both Lily and Isma’il have dark pasts, but in this erotic romance, we see them share every dark secret, and there is quite a power in this story that draws you in. This story is a shorter read, so you will just breeze through it the moment you get into it, which for me happened very quickly and I just couldn’t get enough. The characters are very vividly written and the author does a splendid job in portraying them in a way that captures you. And even though I am not a huge fan of erotica, I like more romance in the story, however in this one, I felt like there was quite a bit of intensity in the romance department, and how this story is all about overcoming and facing the past to embrace the love they share. A enthralling read to take hold of you and not let go!! A CAPTIVATING LOVE STORY!!

Synopsis 
 Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now.

But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse—she doesn’t know his real name or where he lives, she’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talks with her brother isn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he’d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms.

Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming “property of”.

Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… If she’s a very, very good girl, she’ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he’ll let her brother live.
Maybe.

My Review 

Marie has finally built up the courage to leave her husband who abused her, and she couldn’t stand it anymore. So now she is living with her brother, looking for a job, and didn’t see the big scary biker like Horse to come roaring into her life and tilt her world upside down. When she first meets him, Horse and his biker friends, have business with her brother, and business she has no knowledge of, and part of her doesn’t want to get involved. Even though he makes her body burn, she just wants Horse out of life, he is way out of what she ever imagined, and he intimidates and her feelings for him start to scare him. Then one day when she walks into her home, she finds her brother has cheated them, and they are about to kill him, and only thing will appease them and save her brothers life….Marie in Horse’s bed. Horse is part of the Reaper’s Motorcycle Club, a club that is family, and a brotherhood, and he would give his life for. He has wanted Marie since he first saw her, and doesn’t hide it. As he begins to start to care for her and would love for her to be his in every way, her brothers messes up and the only thing that will save her brother will if he can convince her to be his and he can claim her as he has wanted to for quite some time now!!

I finally decided that I needed to try this one out!! For quite some time I have seen so many high ratings and reviews for this story, and I will admit I normally don’t read biker romances…ever. However I changed my mind ( I am a woman after all, its in my genetic makeup). and I decided that this was a story I would really like, and like it….scratch that…I LOVED it!!! I couldn’t even put this one down, it had such a compelling voice to the story that just drew me in from the first page. If I had known Wylde wrote like this, I would have read her long ago. I am a idiot for waiting so long. Before I read this, I thought it had a darker theme to the story, but as I was reading it, I really didn’t feel that at all. The romance between Marie and Horse is actually quite sweet and romantic in the beginning, its almost like they are doing this dating dance, and Horse even takes her on a picnic…I KNOW. Bad ass Biker dude taking a girl out on a picnic, never saw that one coming. Now Horse has rough edges that is for sure, but he has a soft spot for Marie. But then Marie messes up their relationship, and it becomes strained, and then her brothers cheats the club, and now she will have to pay, in Horse’s bed, to do with in whatever way he likes. The story is full of flashback in the beginning, and normally I hate flashback, but with the voice of this author on every page, I fell in love with it and the style of the way it turns out.

I really couldn’t help but loving this one….everything about this story I adored. I don’t even know why, since the synopsis makes it seem really harsh and rough, but with the way the story begins, and the emotion that is riddled through the story, and how even though technically its erotica, it had such a exciting plot, that it didn’t seem like one, it seems more like a contemporary romance, and gives off a swoon inducing effect that will make you hungry for more~~ I can hardly wait to read the rest of the series….found a new favorite author, and I am going to follow this series. This story made me fall in love with bikers and intense chemistry that only Joanna Wylde can do in her very unique storytelling voice!!! A WICKED PAGE TURNER!!
