Any self-respecting hedonist will love this book! The author manages to seamlessly connect the dots in this exciting read that’s set in both contemporary Los Angeles and the late 18th-century Mediterranean region.
Beverly is perfectly content with her career as an exotic dancer who teaches women pole dancing, etc., on the side. Her ex-husband, Jay, could not handle her dancing and they eventually divorced. One of her students happens to practice regression therapy and Beverly is taken back to the 18th century and her life as a Middle Eastern princess, Camille. After two years apart, Jay and Beverly reconnect and decide to have an affair, no strings attached, but they are meant to be together; it’s just a matter of time. As Beverly reveals more of her past, she wonders whether Jay was her husband/prince. The parallels are striking and Jay starts to wonder the same thing. But he also experiences some jealousy of the prince, who meant so much to her. Camille, on the other hand, is unhappy in her arranged marriage and attempts to entice her husband away from his harem.
