This is the first book of Bertrice Small's that I ever read over 20 years ago and once I did I was HOOKED! I've been her biggest fan ever since and have read (and saved) every book Bertrice Small has ever written. She's definitely the BEST romance writer EVER! You will LOVE her books no doubt! A MUST READ!

Quite heavy on the historical detail in this fictionalization of a wife of real-life sultan. There's plenty of trashy bodice ripper moments that are Bertrice Small's specialty. I've read this one several times since 8th grade and it never gets stale. :)

ADORA - Her mahogany hair and violet eyes captivated yound Prince Murad the moment he saw her in a convent garden, and their love flowered like the peach blossoms surrounding them.
But Orkhan, Grand Turk of an Empire, claimed Adora for his bride, tearing her from her young love as she wept bitter tears.
Destiny might carry them to other lands and other loves, but Muran and Adora were meant only for each other. Reunited at last, they blazed a trail of tender ectasies and together ruled the world, forging a magnificent love that lives foreverin the pages of history.

The most awful book I've ever read. Heroine (a byzantine princess who marries 3 powerful men) is repeatedly raped and abused by nearly all the men in her life. Practically unreadable. Stay away unless you like mysogynistic stories. Not a romance, but historical fiction with some graphic, disturbing sex scenes.

A beginning to a great writing career. read this book after I had read most of her current books and was not dissappointed.
