    I loved reading this book, I didn't want it to end. I laughed, I cried, I went through my own emotional journey with this story. Not many books have moved me like this one did. A definite must read!

    Curl up with this one!

    When I bought this book I was concerned whether the author would fall into that common trap of falling off the edge of erotica and into pornography. It is after all an immensly sexual subject - life of a young girl in an Arabian sheik's harem. Well rest assured. Saalih does a magical job. The novel is compellingly sexy yet tastfully written and has a wonderful story line grounded in history. Saalih has obviously done her homework and produced a winner. Read this book with someone you want to undress!

    Harem Girl: A Harem Girl's Journal

    I really liked this book because it is a totally believable story with a superb story line. Too often sheik/harem books are premised on unlikely events such as travel back in time or set on some unbelievable planet somewhere else in the universe. Not this story, however, as felt I was reading a true account of life in an Arabian harem in the early 1900¿s. Mariyah the main character starts her adventure as a fourteen years old girl living in Tunisia and ends it in Arabia when she is forty. In the intervening years she is married, enters the harem of an Arab sheik as his slave Sapphira, falls in love and marries again. Therein lies a small but integral part of the plot¿only she knows that she is already married to another man¿until her deceit is discovered. How and why, as a married woman, she enters the harem of a sheik as a slave is an intriguing and cleverly woven story in itself, and what follows afterwards is both warm and harrowing. Expect to shed a tear or two. I bought this book as a present for my wife. It was well received¿as were the thanks the book inspired! If you enjoy sheik/harem slave girl stories you will not be disappointed! However, note the sensible warning on the back cover:¿'A book recommended for the mature and broad minded-not for teenage daughters.' It is quite erotically explicit in parts, but tastefully written, not pornographic.
