Stolen Lives (Blood Brothers #1)
Did I deserve the punishment I received for a violent crime I had no memory of committing? I have no way of knowing, but if it really had been me whoíd caused such injuries to the woman Iím supposed to have harmed, Iím the last man on earth who an innocent virgin should be forced to marry.
Unable to trust myself, my cockís seen nothing but my own hand for the past three years. But now, under the desert sun blazing on the sands of Amahad this woman is being delivered to me. A wife for political reasons, and the contract sheís agreed to and signed, puts it on her to bear my child.
Offcial 4* Review from The Romance Reviews:
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 pages, this is a wild ride for the start of a series. I hope Ms. Mellett offers more descriptive details within the setting of places she takes us to in her next book. Oh, you caught that, I hope, next book... Yes, definitely sign me up! - See more at: The Romance Reviews

Will I hurt her? Black out like I did before? Lose my control and force her?
And how will she cope in an alien environment, married to a stranger?
The emir has decreed the arrangement will need to last only five years. Can we survive together that long, or will it lead to the destruction of us both?
Iím being punished for a fraud my father carried out on the Arabic country of Amahad, stealing money from the desert tribes whoíd struggled to find funds to invest in discovering oil under their sands. They want retribution, and itís me who has to pay the price.
I live as a recluse, I donít show my face in public, scarred so badly by childhood acne. Iím not Arabian princess material, I work as a forensic accountant for heavenís sake.
Iím the last person anyone would want to marry, let alone a handsome desert sheikh.
I donít know what Iím afraid of most, being forced into the arms of a stranger, or him turning me away, unable to perform the duties of a husband due to the unattractiveness of his wife.
A five year sentence. Five years of being forced out of my shell, and into a world I know nothing about.
Will I survive?
