First, I want to assure you that this is the only WIP that will ever be recced in this community and to warn you that this WIP will probably never be completed. If you're like me and infinitely bothered by a story without an end, run away! [1]On the other hand, you have over thirty chapters that are completed, with smut galore, so it's a pretty satisfying read even without an ending.

The Seduction of the Desert Prince is a round robin between three of the best writers in the Highlander fandom, started all the way back in 1998. Apparently the goal was to write a Harlequinesque slave AU with no redeeming plot and mountains of sex, but after thirty chapters a plot got in there anyway (otherwise, this story probably wouldn't be recced).

General premise: A couple of hundred years go, Methos goes off to market and buys a pretty immortal slave with a charming Scottish accent. He then offers to let said slave buy back his freedom with copious amounts of sex. I think you can work out how the rest of the story goes. Shamelessly smutty, full of all of your favorite cliches, and basically a giant fanfic puff pastry (which is what makes it so good:) [2]
