Excellent reading! Captures you and doesn't let you go!! Alexandra is in love with a man who died two hundred years ago ...across the centuries, she is drawn by an inexplicable passion into a realm of mystery and danger -- to be imprisoned in an opulent world of harem intrigue and sensuous slavery. And now Blackwell is with her --patriot, privateer, heroic commander of the US merchantman the Pearl--the dream, the desire made achingly real. Imperiled captives of fate, they are united by a power far greater than time--and by a passion that could destroy them both...or forever change the course of history.

Hot and adventurous time travel story. A lovely grad student writing her thesis on naval battles from the late 1700's is drawn into the life of one of the naval heroes she is researching. Rather just reasearch in the library, she starts physically tracing his adventures,finds a way to time travel and kind of changes history. Nice twists on the distinctions in life style, mores, behavior between the 18th and 20th c.

Xavier and Alexandria, born in different centuries and destined to be together.... but oh what they have to go through to finally be together. I couldn't put it down, totally captivated me as surely as they were captives in Tripoli....

As usual, Brenda Joyce manages a historical romance in a unique setting, with lots of action & sexual tension. Loved the harem stuff!

Time travel book. I didn't like it at all but I know a lot of her fans did.

While working on her master's thesis, an inquisitive graduate student stumbles across the story of a 19th-century New England sea captain who was slaughtered by pirates. The student finds herself transported back to the Barbary Coast of 1802 where she hopes to prevent her beloved sea captain's tragic murder. From the author of Beyond Scandal.
