Oh my god. Bertrice Small. Why did I even try?

Um, it’s a Bertrice Small book. I went into it expecting it to be pretty bad. And it is. Bad and dated and full of revenge sex. Also, set in a harem, so there is this one scene that, had it not been paraphrased by the female participants in conversation with other women, would have been straight-up erotica rather than romance. Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s just that at some point, you reach a level of graphicness that pulls a book out of the roma
Bedazzled is one of Bertrice Small's "harem" books. She has written several of them and almost all her main heroines, from Janet Leslie (The Kadin) to Jasmine Leslie (Wild Jasmine), have spent some time in a harem or two :) In this one, it is India Lindley who finds herself kidnapped by pirates while on the high seas and taken to a remote coast that is part of the Ottoman Empire. There, she falls under the spell of the local "dey", Caynan, who is not what he seems. This was a a very silly, highl ...more

Recommends it for: Lovers of Pirates and Harems and Spunky Heroines
Okay, okay, I confess, I picked up a trashy romance novel. Sometimes, a brain just needs some rest. Honestly, I am not quite finished with it yet, and am not sure if I will finish it. It's a little lengthy for a trashy read.

But, if you want to read about an English girl who goes to elope with her lover in Italy, and en route, gets waylaid by pirates, and sold to a local ruler with a harem, whose spunkiness he finds alluring, and who she in turn finds herself strangely drawn to in spite of his r

I was not prepared for how bad this book would be. I should have done some research before setting out with a different author that I was unfamiliar with. I wanted to read a romance, not a straight up porn in words. Not only that, but in the way that Beatrice Small wrote this book I seriously had to continue to question whether hers was a pen name and she was actually a man. There is so much chauvinism in this book that I just about gagged. Not to mention to the degradation of women.

This book made me cry like a baby when (view spoiler) In my view that makes it a good book, because it reached me on an emotional level. I was also filled with outrage over the actions of India's family, I doubt I would have ever been able to forgive them. Few books reach me on an emotional level, and yes, this is a bodice ripper and has lot's of purple prose, it's good, and I'm glad I decided to read it as part of my current harem obsession.

De tous les B. Small que j'ai pu lire c'est le seul livre où :
1_ les personnages ne sont pas tête à claques (par contre le fait que notre héroïne ne reconnaisse pas notre héros sans sa barbe, c'était quand même un brin limite lol )
2_ l'histoire n'est pas noyée par l'Histoire
3_ Point le plus incroyable : il n'y a pas de partenaire multiple ni infidélité!!!!
J'ai adoré ce livre :)

I enjoyed reading.
I have read every one of the Skye O'Malley series and now I am working my way thru the Skye's Legacy books. India is so much like her great grandmother. She is headstrong and determined to live her life her way. Bertrice Small has always had a way of making you feel connected to the heroines in her books. I wanted to cry right along with India when her son was taken from her. I can't wait to see what the next book has in store for me.

So far I like it. I had a hard time believing that India could sneak away so easily, but it quickly got better.
