Overview


She’ d awakened in a hospital, confused, to discover she was mother to a newborn...and wife to a steely- eyed stranger. Mere hours after gazing on Ishaq Ahmadi in London, Anna found herself at their desert home, which seemed both hauntingly familiar and oddly foreign. No evidence of a happy marriage existed in the palatial residence. No photographs. No clothes that fit Anna’ s slender build. No trust, given Ishaq’ s endless questions. There was simply the primal, passionate connection between them...and, of course, the baby.

But Anna soon learned that nothing about her marriage was to be believed....

Meet the Author



Alexandra Sellers once sat down to try and count how many different places in her wandering life she has called home. She gave up when she reached forty homes in twelve cities and towns in six different countries. But she hasn't visited nearly as many places as she'd like yet.

She started dreaming about exotic locales at the age of 10, when she first cracked the cover of a small collection of tales and pictures called The Arabian Nights. The stories were taken from The Thousand and One Nights, and names like Samarkand, Shiraz, and Baghdad still carry a magic for her which no amount of current history can overshadow.

The stories must have triggered something else in her, too, for it was at this time that she first began to dream of writing herself. Following the advice of Jane Austen, though she hadn't read it yet, Alexandra wrote her first story about the world she knew, her cat. And following her own imagination, she wrote the cat's story from inside the cat's head.

After beginnings like this, it flows naturally that her two favorite forms of fiction should become romance and science fiction. Her first romantic short story sold to the first magazine she sent it to; her first science fiction was simultaneously rejected.

Alexandra was too naïve to realize how lucky she was with the romance story, and it never occurred to her to send the science fiction story to a different publisher. She concentrated on romance, and her only serious foray into that other world—so far—has been the fantasy satire Spoken Cat, published in 1997.

In between bouts of travel and university, Alexandra has been a full-time writer since the publication of her first novel in 1980. Her favorite hobby is foreign languages, of which she has so far studied eight, sadly without becoming fluent in any. One of the most enjoyable periods in her life was the three years she recently spent at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, where she was the first student ever to graduate in the double degree of Persian and Religious Studies.

Alexandra lives with her husband, Nick, and a cat named Monsieur. The two of them are equal parts maddening and indispensable to her happiness.

Alexandra welcomes visitors to her Web site at alexandrasellers.com.

    A Little Far Fetched? See For Yourself

    In the beginning, the story seemed rather far fetched, that someone can wake up and find herself with a baby when she'd not been pregnant, and being whooshed off to the Middle East. The ending is just perfect, when I thought it would end otherwise. See for yourself.

    Very Different

    Mystery, intreque, and a wonderfully woven plot with a good but abrupt ending.
