These 3 are connected by brothers, and are more enjoyable in order, but could be taken as standalones. There would be slight spoilers for the earlier ones if you start at #2 or #3.

Sheikh Ahmed Al-Qasimi ❤ Caterer Melanie Martin    

 

If you are not the heir or the spare, then what are you?

 

Sheikh Ahmed Al-Qasimi is the baby of the family. He feels overlooked and under-used in his family. He is never given anything of importance to oversee, only frivolous things that his father or brothers don’t want to waste their time on. It’s getting old and boring and he longs for something more. When Ahmed spots a stunning green eyed brunette member of the catering staff, he knows he definitely wants more of her!

So the hunt begins!




Run, little rabbit, run!

With Melanie, her career comes first, past failures be damned! Establishing her catering business is her goal as well as where she puts all of her time and money. She meets the sexy Ahmed one evening during an event she is catering while both of them are attempting to find a private moment to breathe. Melanie is as taken with Ahmed as he is with her, but there is not room for a man in her life, or even a day off. Food seems to be Melanie week point, as she is eventually coaxed into a midnight meal at a place that is authentically local. His treat, of course!

(Hey, don’t judge! That’s how I met my husband, “free food and beer!”)




During their late night rendezvous, Ahmed confesses he has not had the pleasure of truly seeing New York and Melanie agrees to a weekend of helping to rectify the injustice. A no strings attached Cinderella story that ends at midnight on the second day. And it does, but their time together leaves lasting impressions on the pair in more ways than one. Melanie doesn’t want to derail her plans with the complication of a relationship and tries to avoid Ahmed, but he has decided he wants his little American and is going to do whatever it takes to get her back into his life.
And his bed!



 


Of course it’s not going to be that easy!

Ahmed’s father is up to his old tricks with unwelcomed surprises. There is a mystery man offering Melanie a large sum of money out of nowhere. There are more secret weddings, babies, and of course HOT hanky panky!

You will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of story that is packed into this 3 hour audiobook. Overall this is a well plotted sexy little story!

♥ Narrator(s) ♥

 

This is my second listen by Nicholas Thurkettle, and I’m still in love! He humanizes all of the characters, no matter the gender or age. He uses a slight accent for Khalid and his family that sounds like it could be the way the characters would really talk and not a gimmicky accent that is often done for people in that area of the world.

♥ Story ♥

 

Sheikh Khalid Al-Qasimi ❤ Journalist Casey Connolly

 

The story opens at the altar of all things. Sheikh Khalid Al-Qasimi is getting married, and not to the heroine of the story. Not quite what you were expecting huh? It’s a forced/arranged wedding that neither of the participants want, but it is tradition. The marriage is a punishment in Khalid’s eyes, handed down by his father who is tired of his sons making less than honorable headlines, and kids today complain about losing cell phone privileges. Really puts thing in perspective.




Enter Casey Connolly, a journalist out for a story on arrange marriages that will make front page and forward her path to a Pulitzer. She’s a woman on a mission! Her outbursts disrupts the wedding, causes the bride to call it off, muddies the water for all other present, and lands Casey in the palace prison. So not quite how she thought it was going to play out.




While pacing her cell, Casey receives a visitor with an offer she can’t refuse! Khalid wants to thwart his father’s plans for him to marry and sees a way out in the journalist. Casey needs the interview to headline her report to get her front page across the nation. Seems like a win-win for both of them, so what could possibly go wrong?
Always EVERYTHING when you say that!

This is more of a Novella size at barely 3 hours, but Casey and Khalid have enough time to do some soul searching and discover some deeper part of themselves. Plus have some sexy times too! Overall a sweet and sexy little story!


“Please. Always. Forever.”
— Casey

This is my first listen by Nicholas Thurkettle, and I’m in love! His voice definitely works for the future ruler Khalid as well as the determined Casey. He uses a slight accent for Khalid and his family that sounds real and not overly done like some can resort to.
