Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know (Paperback)Samira Ahmed (author)
- Coming soon
It is August in Paris. Budding art historian Khayyam should be having the time of her life in the City of Light - but with her life back home in a mess, even the prettiest patisseries can't tempt her to leave her worries behind. Only when she meets a dashing young Parisian - who happens to be a distant relative of the novelist Alexandre Dumas - do things start to get interesting.
Two hundred years earlier in the Ottoman empire, Leila is the most favoured of the Pasha's harem. Her position is meant to be a blessing and a gift; but for her it is a curse and a risk, as she fights to keep her true love hidden from the jealous Pasha.
As Khayyam and her (possible?) new beau uncover the scintillating mystery linking Leila with Dumas, the painter Eugene Delacroix and Lord Byron - a radical symbiosis occurs: as one woman's long-forgotten life is brought to dazzling light, the other's is transformed forever.
