Nadwa is a voluptuous khadine, a slave of the royal harem. But khadines do not have sex with all in sundry and the Sultan, but then Abu Talib was no ordinary Sultan. A cruel man, who had wheedled his way to power, now ruled as he saw fit. He liked using the khadine as much as his own concubines and he had no intention of denying himself anything he wanted. There were others however, just as callous and calculating as the Sultan and ruthless and dangerously handsome Hubdia needed two women who could aid him in his plot to wrest power from the Sultan.
All think they are in control, Nadwa, the stunning, cruel khadine, who can only gain sexual relief by whipping herself. Bella, the street waif and her friend Fatima who see a chance to get rich at last. All believe they are in control, but all will learn that it is the men with whom they dice and deal that carry the whips.
A torrid desert tale of trickery and deceit and the women who suffer the whip, hard labour, torture and even slow death, only to see the men who donít take the risks take the spoils - and only women bleed.
