Editorial Reviews


  • '...a smoothly paced story about obsession, prose as taut as skin, and dialogue as
    transparent as Omar's lusts.' - Kirkus Reviews
  • 'A beguiling journey into the human psyche' - Amazon UK Review
  • 'Areal gem! Highly recommended. The ending is bothunexpected and inspiring.' - Andreu Cabre - Amazon USA Review
  • 'genuinely intriguing literature carrying the open-minded reader on a journey comprising an array of emotions' - Jeff L 'The Dark Quill' - Amazon USA
  • 'While told from a male perspective, it read more like a beautiful biography than a fantasy. It opened up my world perspective and challenged me to look at my own marriage differently. This is one that I will definitely recommend and keep forever on my shelf to read again.' - Raven Legal - Amazon USA and GoodReads
  • 'interesting and thought-provoking' - Lovereading
  • 'I needn't have feared this would turn out to be a male Fifty Shades...much wiser and more engaging' - Apple iBooks
  • ' It was one of those books that I had to stay up to finish reading. Some people may have an issue with the subject matter but I didn't you just have to remember it is a work of fiction. This book was well written and enjoyable. I rarely give a book a 5 star but in my opinion this book deserved it.' - Luisa Pitton - Amazon Canada
  • 'I liked the story of this polygamous man trying to find his place in the world, with women and with religion. It was a light read but engaging and I kept going back to it in my mind and wishing time could pass quickly so reading time was back again, and it had been a while since I had that feeling.' - Sonia Almeida Dias, Lisbon GoodReads and NetGalley Review
  •  'A really interesting insight into male sexuality and desire.' - Ellie Scott - Amazon
  • 'A probing, thoughtful story...' - Kirkus Reviews

From the Author

Sexual relationships - with wives, husbands, partners, lovers - form such an important aspect of our lives that it amazes me that so many novels on the subject are either 'romance' or 'erotica' i.e. either vacuous emotional or erotic titillation. I'm all for books being entertaining, and have done my best to make this one so - but there are fascinating life-changing experiences to be discovered in this area, and it is a shame that these are overlooked in the rush to trivialise love and sex.
If you've ever known the acute emotional pain of a failed love affair - but have managed to come through the other side without becoming too embittered -you will know that this is an experience through which a person grows, becomes stronger, is 'forged by fire'. Watch Omar Al Ghamdi, our polygamousprotagonist, stride into what he expects to be a sexual sweet shop - then having to cope with major transformational, spiritual anddevelopmental experiences.
