Book Description

Feb. 1 1978

Abducted from a life of privilege, she was sold into slavery in a distant land. For Lady Janet Leslie there would be no escaping the harem of the wealthy and powerful Sultan Selim. But from the moment the handsome ruler spied his breathtaking "Cyra," was captivated -- by the fiery desire that coursed through his veins. She belonged to him, body and soul -yet it was he who was enslaved.

Praised for her keen sense of history and remarkable storytelling powers, the bestselling author of The Spitfire displays the passionate magic that has made her a national favorite -sweeping the reader into the romantic past, from the magnificence of Renaissance Europe to the perfumed splendor of a Sultan's court.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Aug. 6 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Janet Leslie is a young Scottish girl who travels with her brother and widowed father to a small Mediterranean duchy where her father will serve as ambassador to Scotland. One day she is betrayed and kidnapped only to be sold is the slave markets of the East. She arrives in Ottoman ruled Turkey and meets 2 other young woman who will be embroiled in a plot with her. Their role will be to become the favorites of the current sultan's beloved son Selim. Janet, now named Cyra, makes a vow with the 2 other women Firousi and Zulieka that they will remain true to each other and survive their ordeal. This book tells the unforgetable tale of a remarkable woman who must learn to live in a culture completely foreign to her own, a woman who falls in love with Selim and remains true to her friends, a woman who would be mother to one of Turkey's greatest sultans, Suleiman the Magnificent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Blend Feb. 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be a perfect blend of history and romance. While I agree that the idea of a 13 year old girl being sold into slavery is completely repulsive by today's standards it wasn't uncommon for girls this age to be married and expecting thier first child back in the era that the book is set in. I thought the characters were well thought out, the women were strong and intellegent and in fact the relationship between the four main women in the harem very well may have overshadowed the romance between Cyra an Selim. If you aren't much into history this book is probably not what you'd want to pluck from the shelves first, however if you like a well written story with lots of good history, definately pick this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars the very best of bertrice Jan. 16 2004
By donna
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I never liked romance novels until i read a Bertrice Small book. The Kadin is so much more than a romance novel,its a story of janet/cyras life. I laughed and cried my way through the entire book. This is definitely a book I can read over and over again and would reccommend to anyone. Everyone of Mrs Small's books are great but this is by far the greatest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best! Nov. 24 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In my opinion, this is the best of all Small's works. Even tho they left the last chapter out of the original paperback it is an outstanding read. The historical information is accurate and very informative. The female characters are unusually strong. Just sit back and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Jan. 8 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the best one of Bertrice Small's books other than the "Skye" series. I have probably read this book 10 times or more. If you've never read any of Bertrice Small's books before, I recommend this as your first one. Once you read it you'll be hooked for life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST !!! March 15 2002
By A.C
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book was absolutly fantastic. Even though the years in the book went by rather fast I still enjoyed it. When reading this book I really got involved in the character of 'Cyra', we follow her life from the very beginning ang then when she passes away. I found myself a bit emotional when coming to the end because I new that she was going to die but it still effected me. Throughtout the book she shows such heart and such strength that a person would find it very hard not to conect to her in one way or another. I would highly recomend this book to any Bertrice Small fans, you won't be disapointed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Jan. 12 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite book. I have had it since it was first on the market and have read it over and over again. Would never sell it. I consider this the greatest love story I have ever read. I would give it a 10 star rating if I could. Bertrice Small gets my vote as the greatest erotic love author around. Make sure you read Love Wild and Fair after this one to continue the love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kadin Sept. 10 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I started reading Bertice Small with Love Slave. But I thoroughly enojoyed reading The Kadin. The author has a way with words, that transports you to the era. I "lived" with Cyra, Firousi, Zuleika, Sarina, Lady Refet. So much so, that I finished reading the book on a Sunday afternoon. Loving it, crying, laughing, enojoying it tremendously. The Kadin explained so much about the Sultan way of life, not known today. So much so, that I re read certain parts of the novel today, and looked up on the internet all that I could find on Sultan Selim. I strongly recommend reading this book if you wish to get away from your world for a few hours. I cried when Lady Refet passed away, as did Haji Bey. Via the author, you can understand their way of life and view yours as in need of change or review. Trust me, you must read this!
