Their Virgin Princess
A broken woman…
Alea Binte al Mussad, Princess of Bezakistan, was abducted from her university, mentally tortured and forced to witness the worst of humanity. She was rescued, but not before fear and her shattered soul made her retreat into herself. Two years later, she’s living behind the palace’s locked gates and the walls she’s built surrounding her heart. Alea is comforted by the joyous family around her, but inside feels so alone—except when she’s with the steady trio of guards who relentlessly keep her safe. And tempt her with a passion she isn’t sure she’ll survive.
Three stalwart warriors determined to claim her…
Dane Mitchell, Cooper Evans, and Landon Nix wanted Alea from the moment they laid eyes on her. Held back by their duty and her fragility, they worship the Princess from afar, determined to claim her if the chance ever comes. When Alea learns that someone may still be hunting her, she plots to escape both danger and her guards’ simmering, overwhelming passion. Dane, Coop, and Lan aren’t about to let her go. When they find themselves in paradise and all boundaries are stripped away, the ice begins to melt around Alea’s heart. But when reality comes crashing in, will she learn to accept love before a killer strikes again?
Princess Alea Binte al Mussad finds herself in a bad, bad situation. Abducted from graduate school in New York she has been doped up and thrown in a brothel in the jungle forced to continually witness the unspeakable acts other women held captive there are subjected to. As the torturous days pass by Alea loses all hope that anyone will ever come for her until Lieutenant Cole Lennox and his brother show up, guns blazing and return her to the palace in Bezakistan. And to where ex-Navy Seals Dane, Cooper and Landon are waiting to protect the Princess 24/7.
With these gorgeous men monitoring her every move Alea can’t help the fact that they invade her every thought. But emotionally damaged from her ordeal and completely insecure about her body she wonders what any of these men would ever see in someone like her. But they see more than she knows. Dane, Cooper and Landon have done nothing but spend the past year stealing glances when she isn’t looking and dreaming of what it would be like to be with her, all of them, together, as one big happy family. And lucky for them Bezakistan is two thumbs up on the idea of sharing!
What starts out as dream all the sudden turns into reality and also a pretty good testosterone pissing match when the men’s own insecurities bubble to the surface as they try to figure out what part each of them will play in Alea’s life. And when sexy Dom Dane, flirtatious Cooper and soft spoken Landon all fall hard for the Princess jealousy rears its ugly head as they realize they might not be so down with sharing as they thought they would be. But with a little help from Alea’s cousin Talib the men realize that they are family and nothing is more important than making Alea part of that family. Now they just need to make Alea realize it too.
Wanting to escape the stress of her life and her three overbearing bodyguards Alea decides to skip town on her cousin’s plane bound for Australia. But what she doesn’t bank on is her men getting wind of it and her getaway for one turns into an unexpected vacation for four. When their plane is sabotaged over the ocean they find themselves fighting to stay alive and end up marooned on a deserted island. Good thing Dane is the “MacGyver of island living” as Cooper calls him because they end up living pretty large while they are there! With no hope of rescue in sight and nothing to do on this tiny island but each other Dane, Cooper and Landon get to work on showing Alea just how much she means to them and Alea blossoms beneath their declarations of love and their heated touch. Frankly with how hot things got on that island I’m surprised all that sand didn’t turn to glass! Hmmm, three guys + one girl = well I think you can figure this equation out. *wicked grin* But despite all their progress Alea still won’t open up about what happened to her in the jungle and they can’t move forward toward that happy family they want until she can deal with her past.
But just as there is light at the end of the tunnel they suddenly are rescued and then everything goes to pot. With the carefree fantasy life they all lead on the island over Alea doesn’t want to subject the men she loves to the scrutiny of the press so she tries to do the noble thing and force them out of her life. But they are ready for her and they aren’t backing down and they will do whatever it takes, even if it means playing a little dirty, to make sure she stays with them where she belongs.
And when new information comes to light that Alea’s abductor might still be on the loose Dane, Cooper and Landon find that they are again fighting to save the woman they love. And there is a real twist in whom that abductor actually is! I think readers will be pleased with the conclusion to Alea, Dane, Copper and Landon’s story and are also treated to a glimpse at who the next Masters of Ménage book will be about. And I can tell you that the hijinks that are already going on with this next group already have me wanting to dive into their story!
I was excited to get the chance to review Their Virgin Princess because even though I have bought all three previous Masters of Ménage books they have sat idle on my NOOK due to my busy schedule. *ducks at flying objects from Lexi and Shayla* While I might have been at a slight disadvantage for some background story on some supporting characters I found that I had no trouble reading this as a standalone book. And having gotten a glimpse at what I have missed I am definitely going to go back and read the full series so I can catch up with all these characters, especially Piper and her men in Their Virgin Concubine!
