A tangled web of espionage and intrigue played out against the gritty background of the Tabrizi oil fields. The author employs her intimate knowledge of North Africa and the Mediterranean to weave an absorbing tale with more than its share of suspense and chicanery in exotic locations. I was fascinated by the descriptions of life in the antediluvian world of Tabriz, and the variety of characters drawn to work in this bizarre domain.

It is mind-blowing. The author takes you through such an exciting journey of sex, passion, hidden fantasies and much more. Each chapter is a different erotic story that will trigger your mind and will make you want to read more and more. Honestly it is hard to put down. And like me, you may find more than one of your erotic fantasies coming true. Joshrx7, Australia
I just finished reading Jacqueline's book, Foreign Affairs. This novel is fantastic, very hot and very literate. It is a veritable travelogue of sex as the title indicates. It revolves around a collection of short stories placed in exotic locations by an English writer, John Trehearne. They are being read at a censorship review proceeding and narrative between the stories develops John's character and his romantic opposite, Priscilla. Although, like most romances, the end of the novel is predictable the short stories often have trick endings with implied meanings keeping everything spicy. Several characters appear in more than one story and Trehearne admits that they are somewhat autobiographical. This links the stories right into the big picture, one of the characters even sent a letter addressing the censorship proceedings. Because of this related story-within-a-story technique, Foreign Affairs provides a richness of thought not often found in spicy romances. It's a red hot read and a novel that will stick in the back of your mind. Jojo Jinx(less)

I was really impressed with Jacqueline George's new novel, Her Master's Voice. She brought together so many different aspects of life, and with such ease. It seemed so natural. I felt as though I was watching a movie taking place in areas I could only dream of visiting. It is still true that foreign adventures seem much sexier, and the whole atmosphere adds a perfect backdrop to the story.
Sherry and Tim, a couple from England, seem to have lost their fire. Their marriage is still intact, but they need others to help them spice up their love life: that's where we meet a plethora of characters that are unforgettable. Ranji is the beautiful and vivacious Indian friend of Sherry's, who just so happens to teach her a thing or two about oral sex, which is sure to drive her husband mad. Alistair is the Malay prince, who has a very healthy sex drive, and who ultimately adopts the couple and brings them much closer together. There are far too many convincing and interesting characters to mention!
Overall, I still believe that Jacqueline writes stories with such interesting plots, and such beautiful detail, that I find myself not even realizing that I am reading something classified as erotic. I recommend this book to anyone who seeks a little adventure in their lives. Reviewer: Kyo
Fantastic Writing! This is one heck of a story. The details of the exotic locale are revealed by someone who knows what she's talking about. You feel yourself in the jungle, above the swamps, and gain a knowledge about a very different lifestyle. The characters, especially the women, are luscious and different… a God that revels in a Woman's bottom? I love it! It's a whirlwind story, always interesting and I like the way the sex scenes are presented with class, each tender choice for sexual 'parts' some word you don't expect, make you think twice about (often even arouse you). Salacious yet sensuous, surprising too. Wow. Great writing. Reviewer: Victoise(less)

War has broken out and the Imperial Army has occupied Montebello. Now the adjutant Prince Franz Mefist has presented her with an ultimatum: he needs girls for the officer's bordello, and if Therese does not find them in her convent, then the army will seize women from the neighbouring village.
Are her vows worth sacrificing village women and their families?
And if she agrees to help with girls, what else will she have to do for the handsome Prince?
Therese's dilemma is presented against the backdrop of a beautiful Central European winter, with Therese and Mefist struggling to keep the horrors of war away from the castle and the village. As they work together, she begins to appreciate a different way of life. Prince Mefist is not the ogre she had first expected...(less)

"The writer really cares about women, has a way of connecting with them, and their insecurities, and how they think and feel about themselves and the men with whom they share their beds and their lives.
I hope it is published fast enough; women who really want to please their men need to get their hands and reading eyes on it as fast as they can. It just might be the thing that helps them save that relationship they want to save."(less)

If you have read any of my stuff, you probably realise how I obssess about getting the places, people and events to be real and believable (even for fantasises!), and Liverpool University in 1968 must have been a fun time and place. Especially if you love getting out of town and into the hills at week-end - as I did (but later).
Girls mature rapidly when they first leave home and go to Uni, but I did not consciously make this a coming-of-age story. Great events entangle Light, and she has to grow or be swamped. She turns into a pretty tough cookie by the end of the story - I like her!
Definitely five stars - although I may be a touch biased.(less)
