About the book:
From desire on the high seas…
To royal duty at the altar?
Savoring his last taste of freedom, reluctant Prince Luca Fortebracci escapes to the Mediterranean on his lavish yacht. He’s destined to wear a crown and wed a flawless royal bride, so mysterious British beauty Samia is everything he shouldn’t want—but everything he craves…
Samia’s thrilled by the longing Luca awakens within her but knows a temporary fling is their only option. A future with him is impossible. For the shadows of her past make Samia wholly unsuitable to be Luca’s princess…don’t they?
In the 16th Century young women were stolen from their homes in Northern Europe before being taken on journeys of unimaginable hardship and fear before being sold on to slave-traders who supplied the Sultan’s harem.
This is the story of Celestina, a daughter of one of these captives. Left on the steps of a convent by her mother, when Celestina grows into a beautiful woman she too is sold to the harem for the Sultan’s pleasure. Trapped beween deadly politics and a life devoted to sensual pleasure, like her mother before her, Celestina must be shrewd enough to survive.
From the harem to the palace...
Celestina: Warrior Queen
With the Sultan at her side-and in her bed, and anywhere else he chooses to take his thorough pleasure of her-Celestina has learned that life offers delights and exquisite punishments. But she not only faces the erotic challenges made by her very potent Sultan, but those of being married to the land's fiercest warrior. She will be tested-by her people, her enemies, and even herself. And Celestina will have to choose between accepting her destiny... or being destroyed by it.
