**Review as posted at Queentutt's World of Escapism book review blog.**

Shayla Black and Lexi Blake hit their stride with Their Virgin Concubine. I enjoyed the first two books in the Masters of Ménage series very much, but I found the likable heroines to be a bit one-dimensional. Expecting a similar heroine in Their Virgin Concubine, I was thrilled by its great heroine, Piper Glen who has the perfect mix of young, vulnerable virgin along with strong, independent, and intelligent woman.

The imaginary country of Bezakistan with its beautiful deserts, its wealth, and its customs, including the marriage customs, is just fantastic. I was so drawn into this new culture, especially the marriage customs, that I just kept reading, needing to know how Piper was going to deal with the al Mussad brothers and being their concubine. I was very satisfied with the way Shayla and Lexi treated the concubine issue.

Talib, Rafe, and Kade are all very different characters, each loving Piper but for different reasons. Piper is the perfect match for all three of the brothers. She understands each one for who he is and what he needs. But, all three of them are manipulating Piper. I found it refreshing that Piper realizes that she is being manipulated. Piper needs to balance her feelings for all three brothers and whether she can forgive any of them for what they have done.

Shayla and Lexi spare no details when describing the intimate encounters between Piper and Talib, Rafe, and Kade. I found myself always looking forward to future encounters because those hot and steamy scenes just burned up the pages.

Shayla Black and Lexi Blake have penned a superbly enticing, erotic romance. I’m really looking forward to the next installment of the Masters of Menage, Their Virgin Princess!

Blake and Black know just when to turn up the burner to scorching. ~ Under the Covers

It’s good to be Piper Glen. She has not one, not even two is enough. BUT THREE HOT, RICH MEN who dominated her each night. Not a bad gig, am I right?

Sheikh Talib al Mussad must secure his rule by finding someone to be his wife. However, things aren’t so simple. His customs say that he must find a woman that he is willing to share with his brothers, Rafe and Kade. The problem isn’t finding a woman they all want. It is convincing Piper to be willing to be with them all at the same time and also be the woman to rule alongside them. It’s a big jump for the clumsy, shy virgin.

First off, the sex is smoking hot! Blake and Black know just when to turn up the burner to scorching. I thought the chemistry was believable. In some ménages, it’s sometimes hard to believe in the potent chemistry between three people equally, but the authors managed to do this is with a hottie and do believe that takes some talent as a writer.

The only thing that irked me some was the way they kept reassuring her one moment, and then going full throttle the next. They all seem to be so gentle with her, telling Piper that she is special but then demanding things that seem a little too hardcore for the shy virgin. I will say that I enjoyed seeing Piper explore her sexuality so I guess it didn’t completely ruin the book for me.

Khalil al Bashir, their cousin who is trying to take away their birthright, however did make an impression on me. I liked his presence. It definitely created more urgency and tension in the book, making for a nice villain.

Overall, I wasn’t thrilled by the overall premise of the book, nor was the dialogue particularly engaging, but I found myself reading this book quickly because I wanted to find out how Tal, Kade, Rafe and Piper worked together as a single entity.

On a parting note, after reading this…I think I need a sheikh for myself. I’ll take Kade.
