An odd mish-mash of sentimental romance and BDSM, neither very effective. This was exceptionally short, even for a "naughty nooner" -- it might have made more sense if it were longer. But the hero finding his long lost love after 11 years and immediately trying to assert dominance over her just felt off, and it didn't really go anyway, either.

Shades and shadows of The Arabian Nights and Scheherazade spring into the reader’s mind as they read this tale of the burning sands. The servant girl Jamillah is caught in the royal stables with one of King Achmad’s many horses. There is a long standing band between this beautiful girl and this magnificent and majestic animal. Before Jamillah is apprehended, the king’s son, Prince Zahir calms the horse and seizes the girl. As they look into each other’s eyes, they remember days long past when th ...more

I have never read one of these "naughty nooners" before and I wasn't sure how long they were. I figured with the name it should be a short novella, easily read in an afternoon. Nope, it didn't even take two minutes to read and I'm soooo glad that it was free because it wasn't worth those two minutes of my time.

Jamillah (h) as a young girl had fallen in love with Prince Zahir. However she was the daughter of a servent and so she wasn't good enough for the prince. When the prince's family learned

Master’s Thief is a tale about a woman who has loved the prince since childhood, but due to the circumstances of life, she has been forced to watch him from afar. When the prince discovers her—and remembers her—she realizes he’s had feelings for her since their separation. I liked that aspect and enjoyed their interaction before they got down ‘n’ dirty.

I liked this book, but there was an incy problem for me. The point of view switches threw me off a bit. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong wit
It was very, very, very, short.

The prince acted way too odd, and out of character according to his culture, as stated in the book.
Nor was there an explanation as to how the woman got to the stable where she meet the prince, or why she fought her feelings for the prince.

It was more like a plot element, or idea, rather than a story in itself.
Since it was so short, nothing in it made a lot of sense, but it did have a happy ending.

this was the best shirt story ever. it was quick for obvious reasons s but I. the 5 min it took to read it I fell in love. I would love to see a novel for those two.
Prince Zahir & Jamillah knew each other as children & were separated. When he sees her again all grown up, rather then punish her for stealing...he decides he must have her.
Quick read.

Could have been better

Not so full of Eastern promise. Back story helped but plot a little thin on the ground.

Erotica romance ! Quick read! Free!

This is a very short quick paced book. I loved every page of it. The story is based on a poor child of a servant who's in live with a future prince but taken away because of the connection between them. When she's found stealing the boy who she loved is now the prince dealing out her punishment. Fantastic story. 5 star.

excellent writing, hot love scenes--but it gets an average rating because this is a story that should have been a full-length book. SO much potential with the backstory hinted at. i'm a little sad that all we got was their reunion and we did not get to see their whole story! i would have loved to have read it!

This was an ok freebie. It was written well and I liked the story line. The characters were ok, but I couldn't really connect. I would've liked this to have been longer and have some meat to the plot. I didn't really feel this one. Good for something to read or for passing the time. Enh...Good Luck

The hero needs to make up his mind. They were best friends in early childhood. Then he decided that the heroine was to be a sex slave. Then he called her wife.

Dom and submissive roles over and above what is required between a prince and one of his subjects.

It is wrong for a price to fall for a servents child. So wrong that gaurds, servents, and everyone else try to keep them away from each other. But fate has other plans. Brought together in the act of stealing water, the two will find each other one more time.

While this book did have a few redeeming qualities, due to a lack of editorial contribution I would not recommend.

My Rating System:
* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.
This book was ok, it is a short story that I read before bed. I like it ok, but some short stories you don't get to learn the characters and that is how I felt about this book. I hope that I can read more from this author.
This book made me laugh by the way it was written. and the expressions that were used. It was the first time I've read a book of this nature and it was interesting if not a little far fetched...

ok, I think I was dumb founded by this book lol. He went from liking her to saying she's his slave. IDK an OK read to read when you're bored! If it was longer I think it could have been better!!!

The bit of backstory was helpful with this book but that was pretty much it unfortunately. The love scene was pretty hot though

A heated little read, nice setting building even for a short story. I look forward to reading more from the author.

This sounded like something I could have written. That's not a compliment. My writing is atrocious.
