If you love romance stories but hate the ones with graphic sex scenes this is the book for you. It has adventure, suspense about a young lady who was shipwrecked off the African coast and saed from the raging seas by the ship's handsome deckhand who is a infamous fugitive accused of murder. She is captured and sold to a Turkish Ruler for his harem. Her hero plots her escape. When she is safely back home she seeks to prove his innocence. A suprise ending.
