Victoria Bassington has been raised by her doting brother, and has been allowed to get away with anything. She's turned into a 20-year old terror who delights in outraging her society peers by joining the militant suffragists led by Emmeline Pankhurst. The arrival of her brother's friend, Aram the Pasha of Marrakesh, gives Victoria all kinds of opportunities to heap abuse on him for his less-than-liberated views on women. Her brother is at loose ends how to deal with her and tells the Pasha to t ...more

Oh Sweet Mother of God in a flaming canoe this was a bad book.

Not bad like Defiant Ecstasy bad, however. Shit did happen in this one.

I bought this book at a 79c bargain bin when I was 13 and it subsequently did the rounds of all my friends, their friends and their friends! A fun, historical sex romp set in London and Morocco, this erotic, multiple-partner romance was way ahead of its time. A little similar to Johanna Lindsey's 'Captive Bride' storyline (minus the romantic prose) and only because it was 2nd sheikh story I'd read at the time.

The heroine is a spoiled English suffragette who insults her brother's friend, the she
