This is the sequel to Harem Slave, but may be enjoyed independently.
Tammy Simmons, an all-American girl from Maryland, spent more than five years in slavery on the Persian Gulf, two in private harems, and three in a high- class “gentlemen’s club.” When she murders a man who has taken great pleasure in tormenting her, she is sentenced to be boiled in oil at a snuff club where rebellious slaves and other criminals are tortured to death as entertainment. She is miraculously rescued by the Ambassador of Cameroon, a member of the club who had fallen in love with her. He takes her as his fourth wife and they return to Cameroon where he is the newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Tammy is a strong person and has survived her harrowing years in slavery with most of her sanity and her sense of humor intact, but she is facing major adjustments: her recently restored freedom to a confusing and intimidating world, living in a polygamous household, the very public life as wife of a highly prominent personality, and living in Africa, where she has never been before.
It’s a struggle. She thought she could press a button and be herself again, but it’s a lot harder than she figured. Managing money is especially challenging. She keeps going over budget, incurring the wrath of her co-wives. “Try going five years without a penny to your name, surrounded by people who own 747s and yachts and huge estates,” she says. “You lose perspective, and what’s worse, you don’t even realize that you’ve lost perspective.” Readers will cheer her on as she gradually reclaims her rightful place among free people.
There are setbacks: she suffers two devastating miscarriages, and the press has a heyday with the fact that the Minister of Foreign Affairs met his most recent wife in a brothel. Further, wife number three, another American, refuses to recognize any difference between being a whore and a slave in a brothel, is horrified to be Tammy’s co-wife.
Then it develops that Prince Ibrahim, her owner for three years, decides that he wants her back, and tension builds…
