Description

Kim Nelson has heard the legend of Jade, a powerful woman who was considered to be a djinn, a spirit with the ability to seduce any human heart—but Kim isn’t interested in legends. She’s just looking for her grandmother. Fifty years ago, Jade served the Black Sultan as part of the Imperial Harem, but Jade was no ordinary harem girl—she was the sultan’s favorite. She had the power to manipulate men’s and women’s hearts, subtly alter their convictions, and even affect the course of an entire war. A brilliant adventure, erotic and exotic, beautifully drawn with fully formed characters and a mystery that draws you in.

The legends also say that Jade, and Jade alone, knew where the Black Sultan hid his treasure…a treasure that no one has ever managed to unearth.

Now, fifty years later, Kim Nelson is reliving the life of her ancestor Jade in modern Istanbul, hoping to find answers that have been lost to history. It will be a long journey, a journey that will change her life forever.

We are offered two parallel stories, as the lovely Kim Nelson probes into highly dangerous and erotic territory to find out about her grandmother. Meanwhile, she is manipulated and abused by others who want to find the Sultan’s lost treasure. And melded carefully in, we have the real story, of Jade and how she stopped at nothing to achieve what only she was aware were her true goals. A page-turner of the first order, both highly adventurous and highly erotic, which I highly enjoyed reading. It will continue into Volume 2 and even though we don’t get a wrap-up, I am pleased that there is more of this fine work to come. -Bud
