3.5 stars

Review is slightly spoilerish

"Of course, it's important. I know you. Nothing would make you bother the police for a joke. With you, it's always something important-you're about to be murdered, or else commit suicide, or perhaps you've decided to involve the Royal Family in some fiendish scandal, or disobey the Pope."

Hah! This is the third book in a long series, and this review will be rather brief to avoid spoiling events from the prior novels, Angelique (Book 1) and Angélique and the K

Sins of my youth -- I read this book when I was 12 with red ears... well still a pretty good trash read!

Angelique in Barbary
Sergeanne Golon - 3rd in series
This book tells how beautiful, emerald-eyed Angelique, sets out in search of her first husband, Joffrey de Peyrac.

Although Angelique has lived many lives in the years since Joffrey was sentenced to death, she could never forget him and remembered as the gentlest and wisest of her lovers. When the King reveals that Joffrey was spared execution and later outwitted his guards, she knows that no matter how inaccessible his hiding place, she will ma

Just like the three before it, this fourth book in the Angelique series, was magnificent. It had every element of brilliant writing and I found myself utterly caught up. This book was absolutely unbelievable. I loved it! This is well beyond 5 stars!

With the first two books, I learned about being a strong woman despite hardship, and being true to yourself. This book opened up a whole new Arabian world, and made me go on used book searches for the next book.

Recommends it for: I recommend all other volumes, but not this one
Recommended to Christine by: I read it as a part of the whole series
I read the complete series of 13 books (theoretically it would be 14 in English, but vol. 1 & 2 are one volume in Germany, plus the last 3 books have not been translated into English) twice, but this volume is the one that I did enjoy the least. I am simply not interested in sultans, serails and harems at all. I prefer France or Quebec as a location.
So this time while rereading the whole series, I will skip this volume.
The first 9 books were great, but the last ones from vol. 10 on seem to b

Překvapení nastalo v okamžiku, kdy se opravdu začalo něco dít. Samozřejmě se mi nelíbilo, čím vším si musela Angelika projít a že zanechala děti v péči své sestry, která ji nesnášela. Po odsouzení jejího manžela se zhroutila, což je sando chápatelné, ale méně pak její činy. Nesouhlasila jsem plně s jejími rozhodnutími, ale koneckonců není na mě, abych určovala literární postavu někoho jiného. Tato kniha se mi líbila více než předchozí díl, ale také jsem si asi přivykla více na televizní komerční ...more

I read this series of "Angelique" books when I was 16-17 years old - I thought it was cool that they were translated from French. I liked the exotic settings (geographically and historically) and I liked the idea that she could get out of any situation and the passionate parts were just icing on the cake. At that time I had no idea what a bodice ripper novel was and probably wouldn't pick it up today. I rated as I would have when I read them.
Love the cover. Generally speaking not a big fan of the whole series, as in this series, Angelique the heroine, always "escapes her fate" just in the nick of time, and I find that all droll and boring. But the cover art is to die for. I'd have done it with Angelique in a silk harem outfit, about to fall off her, with a perfect shot of the Sultan behind her.
Like the other Angelique books, magnificent historical novels that take one to 17th century France and create a lifelong interest in this fascinating period of history. Five stars and more. In this book, Angelique is captured by pirates and becomes a slave in the harem of a tyrant. Exciting as all the other books by Sargeanne Gplon.

I read all these over 40 years ago and loved them.
The fourth book in the Angelique series. I read this in High school many years ago.

My first in a history, romance series -- I LOVED all of them and was sad when Serge died. The last book, by Anne, clearly showed what Serge added.
Deborah Pickstone
Less good than the previous two/three (Book 1&2 in first volume).
The story line is becoming more romance and far less history.
Oh man this book taught me so much about slavery and piracy in the 17th century!
