Sold to the Sheikh is an emotional, erotic romance about finding a way to move on after heartbreak and love again. It contains mature themes and content perfect for fans of the Crossfire series and Fifty Shades of Grey and at least one thing you should *not* try at home without a whole lot of practice first....
Stella Spencer is grateful for any job she can get after her divorce, even if it's at her friend's exclusive club. And Club Volare proves the perfect place to hide while she mends a shattered heart - until she interrupts an auction scene, and the powerful Sheikh Bashir al Aziz bin Said decides that Stella is the woman that he wants.
At Club Volare for one last wild weekend before his family requires him to settle down, Sheikh Bashir doesn't expect to find a woman he can trust or a woman who challenges him. But Stella Spencer is a challenge, all right: both vulnerable and guarded, beautiful and insecure, and a closet submissive. But she's hiding something. Stella is afraid to open her heart to love again after the way she's been hurt, but Sheikh Bashir wants to be the Dom to show her who she truly is - and Sheikh Bashir always gets what he wants.

The Logger's Daughter
intriguing; hot; enjoyable
love the unsuspecting submissive's path to discovery.
Stella... fabulous narration.
Too bad they didn't use ISABELLE GORDON for all the Volare series books, she is perfect.
Well written, good plot, and steamy Dom segments and some actual character development made this a very good read . It wasn't just smut there was some real life depth of feelings, emotions and intelligence; very nice
This book takes a hurting, normal sized woman and puts her in an exotic situation out of her control and comfort zone. Sheik Bashir is sexy and commanding. He seems to know everything Stella needs and wants and does his utmost to give them to her. Sexy, sweet, loving, and more.
I liked them both.
This book is in its own class. The male lead was a Dom but he was respectful and really cared about the female lead.
I received this book free on Amazon and since I read just about any Romance, I decided to check out this book and the author.
I'm glad that I did because I was pleasantly surprised with this book.
There were a couple of scenes or situations that made me a bit uncomfortable but overall
this story was a very Good Read.
The characters were well developed and I liked the dual main leads Point of View.
Bashir was a Dom but he was respectful of Stella, plus you don't find too many books
where the male lead "Plays Hard to Get" =)
I noticed a few reviews of people not liking that the Dom in this book because he didn't consult or discuss things with his submissive first,
Well, I've read a few BDMS books, and I don't remember where any of the Doms asked
permission before doing anything to their Submissive.
Stella signed a contract stating that she would do anything that Bashir wanted for the entire
Holiday weekend, so that's exactly what he did. He did not do anything degrading nor did he pass her around to his friends like some of the "sold" books.
Plus, the good thing about dual POV, is that the Reader knew what Stella and
Bashir both were thinking during the entire book which really helped in certain scenes.
In addition to Stella not objecting to whatever Bashir did to her,
she stated several times that she was enjoying herself and she never used her safe word.
The reader was told several times that Stella did in fact have a Safe Word and could have
used it at any time:
“ It’s fifty thousand dollars for the holiday weekend, Stella.
Standard safe word arrangement, terminating the contract at a prorated rate.
It will change your life,” Lola said, and her face softened."
- Bashir: He reminded Stella of her safe word more than anyone, including Stella.
“You did read the contract you just signed, didn't you, Ms. Spencer?”
“It says that I own you, Ms. Spencer.”
“It says that you are mine, to do with as I please.”
“You have your safe word.
"You do not speak unless I permit it, or to use your safe word.”
“You will have a special safe word for tonight, for this event. ‘Rococo.’”
"She'd never felt so weak. I have my safe word. I can always say the safe word."
"And the plain fact was, she had her safe word. So why didn’t she want to use it?"
Overall, a milder version of the Dom / Sub relationships and I rather enjoyed this one because of it.
Isabelle Gordon is a really well with the narration.
