Life in the Harem

This painting by Rudolph Ernst, one of the 19th century Orientalists, is titled “The Captives.” Ernst’s work provided the inspiration for the harem scenes in HIS OBSESSION, my debut historical novel from Siren BookStrand (http://www.bookstrand.com/his-obsession) or click on the book cover on the left. The novel relates the adventures of Emeliese Alexander, a student at an elite Parisian finishing school, who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the pirate Republic of Bou Regreg. Tomorrow, more harem life.  Rita Bay
