I was enraptured by Ms. Anthony’s wonderfully passionate historical romance. Readers looking for a novel that will take them on an emotional rollercoaster ride and leave them breathless, will love this intriguing historical tale.

Jared, The Duke of Wyndmere, is being accused of treason and of consorting illegally with the Turks. He is being condemned by everybody in society: except for the high born Merridyth St John-Smythe, who much to her father’s chagrin, publicly defends him, and, once again, incurs the wrath and scorn of the whole of society.

Luckily for Jared, he is put aboard a Turkish brigantine and taken to Istanbul, where he is welcomed with open arms by the Sultan. Jared is stunned by how much he resembles the Sultan. But thinks no more about it, as he begins to get used to life in Istanbul.

As the years pass, Jared is informed that he will have to choose a bride, but, in the meantime, he will have a virgin slave brought to his room. But there is a shock in store for Jared, when he finds out that the virgin slave is Merridyth…

Feathers on the Wind is a wonderful book to lose yourself in! Passion, sex, romance, intrigue and passion are expertly blended in this superb tale, that will simply hold you enthralled from the first page to the last. JB
