"There will be inquiries." I choked out. "I am not such
a nonentity that nothing will be done when I am missed. You
will pay for what you have done."
"Pay?" His amused look sent a cold feeling of dread
through me. "I have already paid... in gold that matches
your hair, my gazelle. Besides," he continued, "the French
Government has no jurisdiction over me. There is no
authority here above my own."
My trepidation was growing every passing minute. "Why
have you done this? Why brought me here?"
"Why?" He repeated with a slow and heated appraisal that
made me acutely, almost painfully, conscious of my sex. "Bon
Dieu! Are you not woman enough to know?"

I guess I don't need to finish my cup of coffee, because the passage I just finished reading sure woke me up!! It was a pleasure (no pun intended) to read some background about The Sheik. Although that was a bit before my time, I heard bits and pieces about it growing up, but never heard the whole story. I know that Rudolph Valentino was quite a heartthrob back in his day, and that his grave was even visited quite frequently after he died. To read your rendition of the book is really going to be a treat, since the passage that you put in your posting was so sensual and really kept my interest. I can't wait to see what you did with the rest of the story!! You zoomed up to the top of my TBR list for my Fall reading!! Congratulations on such an ambitious project!!!

Thank you all for your enthusiastic comments! This really
was a risky endeavor for me to take on a well known classic
but I just knew I could make it so much more appealing to
today's readers. I hope those of you who read it will agree.
