Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This romantic adventure centers on the romantic exploits of a lusty Arab princess who is saved from a terrible fate at the hands of Bedouin thieves by the handsome emissary and nephew of Emperor Charlemagne, who has come to the Sahara to see that an entourage of pilgrims make it safely to the Holy Land. The gallant emissary takes the princess to Baghdad where she is to join the harem of the Holy Land's ruler, Vilar. Trouble erupts when the emissary succumbs to the temptations offered by the seductive bride-to-be. Unfortunately, Vilar's jealous vizier finds the couple and condemns the wanton girl to death. Danger, romance and action ensues as the lovers attempt to escape their terrible fate.
