From the back cover: A Spanish noblewoman, her Moorish abductor. . . . romance that soars the height of passions and plumbs the depths of love. . . .
In a raging saga that sweeps the 11th Century Spanish Empire, from its stately Christian villas to the dazzling pleasure-palaces of its Moslem enemies, the ravishingly beautiful Marquesa de Clavijo is abducted by Moorish invaders and forced to serve the Grand Vizier of the Kingdom of Sevilla. But even as her captor's gentle, virile passion transforms her terror to delight, and then to rapturous love, the outraged Marquis de Clavijo races across Spain to challenge his lady's conqueror and vindicate her honor. Here is a panoramic, epic tale that explores a world of exotic splendor -- perfumed harems, jeweled treasures, grand banquets, majestic kingdoms -- a novel torrential with the clashing of iron-willed men and their armies for the hearts of bedazzling ladies, a romance exploding with the joys of love and the triumphs of passion.
