Nijad - I'm a Sheikh, third son of the emir of Amahad, a small but powerful Arab state. After bringing shame on my country and acquiring the well-earned title of the Savage Sheikh, the emir banished me to the desert, where for three years I have led the primitive tribes; my job to prevent jihadists from crossing the border. Do I want a wife? Heck, no, I can't risk letting ...more

This is my first book by Manda Mellett and I will say I am looking forward to reading more!

This is more than just a romance book, it's a book that deals with serious and life changing topics.

It really opened my eyes to the daily struggles of those living in Arab state, which I enjoyed. I love learning about other cultures.

Plus it was fascinating seeing Cara and Nijad relationship transform considering how that met. Cara came off a wee bit scared at first -IMO - but she was such a

The story was captivating. I enjoyed reading a fictional tale where the male lead was not only of color but a different nationality and culture. The way the fictional characters readily accepted and embraced each cultural differences was beautiful. Not to mention the Dom/Sub angle was the touch that made the story.

Stolen Lives Book 1

Ohh my goodness!! I love me some Sheikhs!! Wow! Sexy Hot Alpha men!! Who could ask for anything more. But the Author brings in a woman who is not 'perfect' by most peoples standards. She brought this Alpha man to his knee's. I love that the women have doubts about themselves like most women do. But Author proves when the right one comes along your beautiful in his eyes no matter how much you might not believe it. I can't wait to see what happens next in the series. I recommend

Wow! I have enjoyed other books by this author, but this one is one of my favorites of the year. The book had a wonderful plot that pulled me in from the start. The characters were so wonderful and I felt the connection right away. I put other books on hold to read so I could read the next book of this series.

I was given this book in return for an honest review.

I have to say this was one of my favorite books of 2016. The author puts the perfect amount of detail into this book which makes it so amazing.You really get a huge book (over 300 pages on my kindle). The author really gives me something I can sink my teeth into.

This book really has a story line behind it and not just sex while sometimes comes with books that has BDSM involved. The story line is really amazing takes you on a journy of highs an

This was my first book from Manda,and i love it! Usually this kind of series,for brothers or family members or friend are my favorite, and i can't wait to read every book from this series. I liked this book,i liked Cara ,she has very strong personality, she is smart, but it was a little annoyed ,because i had the feeling that she forgave Nijad a little bit to fast for my taste :)
But except for that i loved this book,and i'm looking forward to meet the other characters from this series.

I absolutely adored this book. Najid & Cara have a love story unlike a traditional romance. It was great to read a story where the heroine doesn’t look like a model. It was great to read a story based somewhere new to me. This book has a lot of faith and courage and passion. Will definitely read the other books in this series!

Stolen Lives

Stolen Lives is about being forced to do something but then that something turns out to be the best thing that could of happened to you. It's about two scared souls finding their missing pieces and healing. This story has alittle of everything alittle BDSM, intrique, suspense, humor and sexy time between the sheets. Happy Reading!!

Wow what a rush! Love a good erotic story? It is within these 400 pages. Like a little bit of drama and mystery? STOLEN LIVES offers this as well. Appreciate a good fairytale romance? Yep that's here too. A great fable, absolutely. To offer all of these wrapped up in a sweet package is exactly what Manda Mellett gives you.

There are a few issues with editing though and I found some parts to be a tad bit rushed. Rushed at 400 pages, you ask? Well again there is so much Ms. Mellet offers in these

Two lost souls come together. Two people who’d had their lives stolen from them, finding a new life together.

This is my first book read by Manda Mellet and I can say I love this book and I will continue reading more of her books.
This book will keep you on edge with so many emotions rolling around. This book was tense, heart stopping moments, betrayal, compelling, twist and turns, passion and love. Cara and Nijad love and passion was so hot that I felt like I was in the room with them. I love Car

When you read this book you have to remember there are huge cultural differences to the westernized world, so the way she is treated goes against 'girl power' but its their way. Its a good story, i thought the events of Paris were obvious from the start but when it is explained why things were accepted the way they were that is also a reasonable explanation. He is hard and cruel at times and you can't help feel for Cara but he sorts himself out in the end.
HEA but i believe their story is continu
