REVIEW - Never Seduce a Sheikh by Jackie Ashenden
Release Date: 10 October 2014
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 Opinion 5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Tule Publishing for an honest review**
I have read almost all of the novels that Jackie Ashenden has written and I have not read a book yet that I would rate below a four star. Jackie Ashenden has a one-click stop for me and so far it has not steered me wrong.
Both of our characters in this novel have a darkness in their past that they have not come to terms with, let alone talked with to another person. However both see a corresponding darkness and pain in the other that seems to set them free in more than just one way. Lilly thought she had put the incident behind her and moved on, only to realise that she had not, whilst Isma'il thought the darkness he hides was a bad thing and that he was tainted and therefore not worthy of Lily's kind of love.
Both find solace and comfort with the other and a cleansing that no other has given to them before. Their emotions run hot and Lily finds herself having to stand up for what she wants and pushing Isma'il not to run away.
A brilliant read that had me turning page after page and not being able to put the book down.
