Here I am enjoying this book, happily rooting for the author because I'm the girl that's all for the underdog. You hate it and rate it, then I know I'm going to most likely Love It!! At least that's how it usually works. Well I got to about 40% before I started frowning. Promise, I was looking for some aspirin because my head hurt from all the drama, kidnappings, and a few silly plot moments. I mean one bad thing after the other started happening until the story seemed out of control. (I actually like out of control, to a point). Then.... I almost had a fit when it didn't look like the HEA would ever happen. Good Lord, how many times can one be kidnapped. Everybody was thrusting their [email protected] into all kinds of holes, back-door holes, tight holes, loose holes, old holes, new holes, underaged holes, light holes, dark holes, anything that was of the female anatomy was being speared, but I actually liked that part too, depending on who it was and the situation. I thought the book had some scenes that could have been left out between 40% and the end, but that's just me; I always want to hurry and get to the good stuff. Decent read, so I don't get all the 1 star ratings. I often wonder if people sometimes jump on the bandwagon when a friend or something gives a bad review. Serious, look close, there is a pattern to it. Anyway, happy readings.

    Beautiful story, sensual erotica, highly charged! I loved this book! It was sensual erotica with a real storyline, very believable and I really connected with the characters and found myself crossing my fingers that everything worked out for them and that they would be together in the end. I noticed a lot of low ratings for this book from people who thought the book was "derogatory towards women" or who found there to be too much sex.

I personally found this book to be very 'real' of what probably did happen in Arabia in a Harem back at the time when this book is set. The main character is also highly intelligent and strong willed, and the Sheik appreciates that about her. I don't want to spoil the book by telling what happens, but I enjoyed every moment of it.

    This book was won for free through Goodreads Firsr Reads Guveaway. The beginning of this book really pulled me in. I liked it from the first page...but then I started chapter 1. I thought this book was going to be more of a romance, but it is almost strictly erotica. Too much of it as well. Every single page. Would not recommend.

    All this book needed was an evil guy in a black cape and a stove pipe hat tying the struggling slave girl to the railroad tracks and then twirling his mustache as he laughed maniaciallly. I mean how many times can one person be abducted in a lifetime?

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I received The Sheik and the Slave as part of a Goodreads giveaway. Kidnapped on the orders of a spurned suitor, beautiful, intelligent Kat Fairfax is shipped to Arabia to serve in the harem of Sheik Mohammad, a powerful, sexually dominant leader. Despite his sexual interest in (and activity with) many women, the stunning Englishwoman captivates him, while his power and prowess impresses Kat. As the two fall further into infatuation, forces--both English and Arabian--threaten to force them apart. I received The Sheik and the Slave as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

The author, Nicola Italia, sent me a lovely note with the book, which was a wonderful gesture. Because of this, I so badly wanted to like the novel. Unfortunately, it really wasn't my cup of tea. It's a lot of erotica, which I don't mind in small doses, but 300 pages of it was a little much for me, personally. Additionally, while I know modern historical romance novels are anachronistic in many ways, the idea that a solidly middle-class father would not only welcome his daughter and her illegitimate child back into the family with no ifs, ands, or buts, but also bless said daughter's marriage to said child's non-Christian father, really defies belief. I just think it would have been a stronger book if it had been more gritty and historical, and a less kinky bodice ripping.

    4+3/4 STARS!! Excellent Historical Romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. There are a few dark scenes that might be disturbing to some, but, unfortunately, these things did actually happen at that time. The story was amazingly well told and grabbed my attention from first page to last. I look forward to reading Ms. Italia' s newest book, just released. 4+3/4 STARS!!

    I don't think you could call this historical romance with the word "snatch" in it! I enjoyed the beginning but it fell apart after about chapter 3 for me. Too many POVs for one thing. I don't need to hear every characters POV, this book had literally everyones. Now I know why some books are free. I don't think you could call this historical romance with the word "snatch" in it!

    Hmm, I'm not sure quite what to say about The Sheikh and the Slave. I'm almost alittle embarrassed to even admit I read it. It reminds me so much of the old Bodice Rippers but more explicit. There is definitely a love story here though mixed within the heavy erotica. When I started reading this book I had a nasty summer cold/flu and read the first half while heavily medicated on NyQuil and nausea meds.

When I started reading this book I had a nasty summer cold/flu and read the first half while heavily medicated on NyQuil and nausea meds. I mention this because I'm not sure I would have given myself a chance to read far enough into the book to get beyond some very uncomfortable but somewhat scintillating scenes. I'm glad though that I did. Just past the half way point in the book the erotica takes a back seat and the love story becomes the focus. Were all the explicit scenes necessary? Hmm, again I'm not sure but it does allow us to see great change in the mind set of the Hero. At one point in the book (or really multiple times) I could not have ever thought I'd think of Mohammed as a Hero. My thinking may be just too western and possibly even puritanical to really wrap my head around Harems and the "Hero" buying and selling of a woman. If you've enjoyed Bodice Rippers such as Kathleen Woodiwiss and even Jude Deveraux and Connie Mason, give this book a try. Be warned though this is not your mother's or grandmother's romance and very rarely did the author fade to black. There is a deep love story here as well as adventure and unusual settings. Please be aware though this book is not for everyone and definitely not for anyone under 18- really I'd say over 21 even. There are very controversial topics including rape and incest.

    Oh no, I just got through the prologue and it's stuffing a modern girl into history. Also, some of the information is repeated enough to insult my intelligence. Argh and mixed modern language with old English! I will keep reading, maybe it will get better. Bah! It felt like a narrator was telling me about everyone's thoughts with some dialogue thrown in to string along the story. I will see how far I get. After 7% can I read any more? The heroine is judged on her beauty and her upstart brains. She Oh no, I just got through the prologue and it's stuffing a modern girl into history.

The heroine is judged on her beauty and her upstart brains. She is hated and sold into slavery. Some unsavory descriptive language regarding female and male anatomy that is definitely not historical. And now the story descends into sex with many different partners with the sheik(by the way most stories use sheikh). If this is supposed to be erotic it comes across as crass. Skimmed the rest. This girl is hated and hated and hated bleh. Read other reviews if you like this kind of story.

    If I could give this book a no stars rating I would have. How anyone can give this book a 4/5 star rating is beyond me, they must be getting paid to place the reviews. This book is horrendous! It has a stupid storyline with far too much badly dwritten sex scenes, rape and kidnappings. It was a tremendous struggle to finish this book! The author needs to either get some lessons in writing or never write another book.

    This is the biggest piece of trash I have ever read, and not in a fun way. I was attempting to read this for a romance challenge, but am going to have to switch titles, because I just can't take this any more. The "sheikh romance" (notice the spelling) subgenre has its definite problems but Italia takes them to a new level with the blatant amounts of "rape is sexy!!!!" that this book employs, including the hero claiming that he didn't rape the heroine though HE CLEARLY DID. I would give this zero This is the biggest piece of trash I have ever read, and not in a fun way.

    It was a passionate love story. The flames of hunger and need leap from the pages. The relation of Mohammad and Kathrine is one of turmoil and passion. The story spans from the lush green of England to sand dunes of Arabia, two worlds colliding. I highly recommend this book. A great read on a stormy night.

    I started reading this story years ago when it started on Literotica. It was captivating then. To be able to finish this was wonderful. The MC is blond and seems to find trouble regardless of her circumstances. However, she is a strong and determined woman. The Sheik is just that a Sheik who is married to a shrew. It all comes together nicely.

    Massive let down I was reading online and wanted to know the end. There are well written parts (the erotica) but the rest of the writing is amateur, the characters are underdeveloped, the explanations very long and repetitive (you can skip whole paragraphs and miss nothing).

    I normally like most all books I read that are romance. This one however reads like a porno. I'm not a shy miss about romance novels either, but in spots of this book it's this one sleeps with that one, this one goes down on another, and so on. This alone wouldn't have been enough to make me not like the book, but it seemed as if the author couldn't decide what she wanted to happen to Mohammed and Katherine. They both went back and forth so many times & Katherine is kidnapped more times than can I normally like most all books I read that are romance. This one however reads like a porno.

They both went back and forth so many times & Katherine is kidnapped more times than can be counted. A previous review I read said if they had just talked they could have been together earlier. I don't think that's true. They talked, told each other how they felt, but still they constantly turned their backs on each other. I won't be reading anymore of Ms. Nicola's books...very dissjointed.

    I picked this book up at my local bookstore because the owner recommended it. To start off, I really did enjoy the book. The characters are really well developed for a bodice ripper type npvel. The story is pretty good too and it's a difficult book to put down. my main critique however is the conflicts of the book. There are some really good conflicts that aren't really dealt with, they just kind of sort themselves out so the couple never really deals with much turmoil.

    It was a struggle to even finish this book. I say "book," but what I really mean is far too many chapters of rape scenes, ridiculous kidnappings, gratuitous and horribly written sex, and just bad writing. This is like one of the worst romances of the 80s come back to life to haunt us. I am so glad I got this for free, it is not worth actual money. I feel kind of bad giving a book such a bad review but it. was. terrible. It was a struggle to even finish this book.

    I enjoyed this book and was certainly rooting for our female protagonist. It combines sex, romance, adventure and historical fiction. All genres that I frequently enjoy. I did find her father and some of the other nobles remarkably tolerant of her absence and then her pregnancy at a time when this would of been a complete no-no even if it wasn't her fault. Despite this, a lovely read. I enjoyed this book and was certainly rooting for our female protagonist. It combines sex, romance, adventure and historical fiction. All genres that I frequently enjoy.

    Could have been a good book What a waste of words on such a good plot. This book could truly have been a worthwhile read but for the overdramatizations.....reminds me of the Perils of Pauline except Katherine had never been tied to the railroad tracks by the villains. Not worth a recommendation.

    Good Storyline My love for Arabian romance grew from my teen encounters with SergeAnne Golon's Angelique series and against which every book of that genre is compared. The Sheik and the Slave is a good story but not quite the epic that is Angelique.

    Good Storyline Enjoyed reading this story. The characters were developed well throughout the story. The book had just enough intrigue, mystery, and sexual situations. Recommend reading for some light entertainment.
