By Marilyn Shoemaker TOP 1000 REVIEWER on June 30 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Only one way to describe it......an exceptionally sweet romance featuring an innocent woman who doesn't see herself as being worthy of a handsome prince's love. He's her boss, her very best friend and she loves and adores him and for Grace Brown the past five years working for him, travelling with him, getting to know his family has been heaven. He's changed her world and "filled it with light, warmth and sound".

In Lucy's July release Forbidden: The Billionaire's Virgin Princess the reader was introduced to Princess Lina and the handsome, rich, playboy...... Sheik Amir. Both of their parents arranged a marriage between them but Lina fooled them all by falling in love and marrying her bodyguard Hawk. So now Sheikh Amir is not going to let his family arrange another marriage. He adores his personal assistant, he trusts her and he's going to break her heart by asking her to find him a wife!

Amir decides he needs to return home to Zorha to see his family and also set his "marriage" plans in motion. He can't deny he has inner feelings for Grace, he certainly considers her more than a PA and close friend and for reasons he can't put his finger on, he's sexually attracted to her and fights his urge to act upon it. He knows if he does, he'll loose not only his PA but friend. He seeks the counsel of his eldest brother and admits his feelings and attraction, but what to do?

As for Grace, she loves Amir deeply and in the end agrees to find some candidates based on his requirements......beauty, intelligence, social standing and most important a marriage of convenience not love. Years ago, Amir loved deeply and his beloved was taken by him in death. He vows never again!

Pretty good... Aug. 11 2008
By Ellie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I generally like Ms. Monroe's work so this book was no exception. She isn't into the hot and steamy love scenes and generally leaves them until the end. So no surprise with this one.
I will not summarize the plot as that has already been done wonderfully. I will say that Ms. Monroe is one of the better Harlequin romance authors and this book shows. I enjoyed reading about Grace and Amir. Their friendship, love, and respect for each other shines through the pages. I enjoyed reading their story and the "risk" that they finally took to expose his/her love to the other. Sweet story. Certainly recommended.

Another gem Aug. 6 2008
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hired: The Sheikh's Secretary Mistress by Lucy Monroe is a delightful story in her Royal Bride series.

Grace Brown has been the personal assistant to Sheikh Amir Bin Faraq al Zorha for five years now. She has enjoyed the fast paced work and the world Amir lives in. But her growing attraction to him is causing her undo stress. Amir's family is tired of his playboy ways and wants him to find a bride to marry. He enlists Grace to make a list of suitable woman to marry.

Amir has had a soft spot in his heart for Grace. She always kept his business life in order. Grace takes no grief from him and Amir finds this refreshing. With this talk of marriage he finds himself looking at Grace in a whole new light.

Amir whisks Grace away to a weekend in the desert and Boss and employee are no more. Grace thinks Amir is still looking for a bride when they return and this crushes her heart. Can Amir convince her that he has found the woman he wants in Grace?

Lucy Monroe's Hired: The Sheikh's Secretary Mistress is a delicious story of unrequited love. I enjoyed how Grace and Amir realize what they were looking for was right under their noses. Lucy Monroe's books are the first books I look for when I want something to calm my soul.

Go out and buy this one! Aug. 26 2008
By J. Enyeart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wow, it's rare that I find one of these little Harlequin books that's any good. They're usually too short to get into any good character development and the writing always seems to be sub-par. This one was great! The writing was good and I really was into the characters and their personalities. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It was so good that I will look up more books by Lucy Monroe.

a very sweet love story Nov. 27 2009
By Picky-and-choosy romance novel lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Please know that I'm not reviewing the Kindle edition of this book, but rather the paperback edition.

Having said that, I very much enjoyed this book. I was engaged the whole way through, the reason for this being that I could so easily relate to Grace.

Granted, there is much good to say about Amir as well, but this book focuses much more about how Grace feels about the unrequited, deep love she feels for her supervisor, a richer-than-God Sheikh who splits his time between New York City and his middle eastern homeland.

Her reluctance to just bare her heart is perfectly understandable. It's easy to see why she feels the way she does.

What I enjoyed most about this book was the "little things" that the author used to convey Grace's deep feelings for Amir. For example, in one scene, they are flying across the Atlantic (in Amir's private jet, of course) and they both fall asleep. Grace awakens before Amir, and finds that, while still asleep, she'd snuggled her way into his arms.

I know that the above doesn't sound like much, but it is so well-written I'm sure it will stay with me for a long time. I was right there with Grace, very much in her shoes, knowing what she knew and feeling what she felt. Kudos to the author!!

To say a few words about Amir, he was certainly very ALPHA, but not mean or cruel (as can be the case sometimes with these books). So sure of himself, so take-charge, so convinced that he's right about everything ... and yet with some very human feelings that any woman could find herself relating to. Again, kudos to the author for bringing us not only into Grace's heart, but for also giving us a way to relate to Amir as well.

Well, if you can't tell by now, I really enjoyed this book! I will be seeking out more books by Lucy Monroe in the future!

Ms. Monroe, if you are reading this, I think you did a wonderful job writing this book. Please accept my heartfelt thanks. This is a keeper, and I'm sure I'll find myself reading this book a second time, in my bubble-bath, sometime in the not-too-distant future!

I thought this was a good read. I enjoyed it, I've always liked books that have someone who's been in love with the other for a while. I thought it was hot.
