I’ve got a historical romance for you all today.  This is a retelling of “The Sheik” that is well worth checking out.  I’ll be posting a review to Goodreads soon, but I can honestly say that despite having not read the original I found this to be an amazing story.  I was held captivated the whole time and was glad for the opportunity to read the book.

EXCERPT:

He chuckled lowly, a smug and self-satisfied sound. “Say it now, ma chère,” he softly demanded. “Tell me you want this above all things. Tell me you want me.”
I did. Desperately, but it was only the fleeting lust of the flesh that I craved—not him. Never him. “You have forced this upon me,” I hissed in a rage of frustration. “This means nothing—proves nothing.”
“As you will….I can be a patient man— when I choose to be.”
His weight shifted away from me, and then it was gone from the bed. He removed the blindfold and then gave a single tug on the silk cord binding me to the bed. My arms instantly released from above my head, and then just as suddenly, he freed my legs.
I instantly scrambled to my knees, dragging the silken coverings up around me as if their thin shelter were a protection. “Are you finished with me now?” I asked breathlessly.
“Finished?” His expression was mixed mockery and mirth. “Par bleu! I have hardly even begun, but for now, I shall leave you in peace.” He strode to the curtained doorway only to turn back to me with a sardonic bow. “Bonne nuit et doux rêves, ma chérie.”
He had left me alone. Alone in a state of dazed bewilderment and intense sexual frustration—for I knew damned well what I was feeling— and it made me want to screech and claw and rail.
The man was a mystery, an unfathomable enigma. My mind could not reconcile his barbaric ways with the evidence of his education and refinement. I had noticed a dozen incongruities in him—his cultured speech, the well-worn books in the tent, the elegant and fastidious order of his appointments. His cruel words and contradictory tender touch crowded my recollection until my head reeled, yet I was too tired to puzzle it out, too spent in mind and body.
I did not know what would come on the morrow but gave in to my exhaustion and sank  into a cocoon of covers. In the course of a single day, my entire being had irrevocably changed. At long last, and with the greatest possible resistance, I was learning obedience and humility—at the hands of this incomprehensible savage.
