The guest of a foreign prince, Robert St. Claire is given
a beautiful slave for his pleasure. Unusual customs aside,
he finds himself in a terrible dilemma. Not only is she
English, but the daughter of a friend. In order to rescue
her from captivity, he must use her like a harem girl in
every way possible...
Lady Celia Davenport has been abducted, sold into slavery,
and now finds herself in the bed of an Infidel lord. If
she gives him erotic pleasure with subservient eagerness,
there is a glimmer of hope in her future. Anxious to
escape, she finds that perhaps sexual servitude isn't the
prison she once imagined. Besides, every time she gives
her lover satisfaction, she receives a rare and valuable
pearl as a reward.

and fate have a hand in granting those rare Arabian

Brothers of the
Absinthe Club 1
for Arabian Pearl
[Brothers of the
Absinthe Club 1]
"The Regency era has never been sexier
than what you’ll experience in Arabian
Pearl. Emma Wildes’ unique writing
style is edgy and erotic. Robert’s
tenderness is sweet and sexy while Celia’s
acceptance of him and her situation is
both moving and emotional. These two
sensual characters create enough heat to
warm you on the coldest of nights and will
have you reaching for ice when things get
too hot. I anxiously look forward to the
remaining stories in the Brothers of the
Absinthe Club series. If they’re anything
like Arabian Pearl, I'll need to
free up more space on my Keeper shelf!" —Kerin,
Two Lips Reviews
"WOW!! Arabian Pearl is an amazing
story. When Celia realizes the situation,
she offers herself to Robert. Ms. Wildes
has an incredible storytelling talent and
she shows it here. Celia is a beautiful
and innocent young woman who is seduced by
Robert, a handsome and knowledgeable man.
Their sexual encounters are beyond erotic;
each night for twelve nights Robert
teaches Celia something new. I was
trembling in my chair as I read about
their exploits. Celia grows in this story
from an innocent child to an adult and
sexually aware young woman. Robert knows
that what he is doing is against all the
rules of his society, but he does not want
Celia punished and thrown into a far
corner of the harem. Although they are not
allowed to discuss their lives in England,
they manage to get to know each other in
whispers. I was simply enthralled by this
story and I highly recommend it to
everyone who enjoys a beautiful, graphic
and erotic love story." —Marcy
Arbitman, The Romance Studio
"This reader found Arabian Pearl a
most interesting read that not only charms
but titillates as well. This fascinating
tale allows the reader to escape into a
world of sultans, harems, and a beautiful
love slave with her English lord. Even
though Celia and Robert’s story is so much
different from the other beautiful women
in Celia’s predicament, I found my heart
going out to those women who couldn’t be
helped and had to suffer their fate when
they were sold into slavery. Emma Wildes
blends some wonderful characters, romance,
and a bit of history to make a sensual
read that keeps the readers interest. She
paints characters with so much emotion
that touch the reader, especially the poor
women in bondage, yet she creates a very
poignant love story between Celia and
Robert that is remarkably breathtaking
making this one excellent read." —Linda
L., Fallen Angel Reviews
"Emma has filled my imagination with this
book. Ah, so many roles in this book
captured my interest. Emma took us back to
the days of Lords, ladies king and riches.
She has given us a story that reminds me
of the old Mills and Boon historical
tales. Where the men were dominant but
love conquered them. The one difference is
that the love scenes in those older books
did not even compare to the hot sensual
love making that Emma writes. When you can
picture the images and places in your head
you know a book is superbly written! This
book has become one of my favorites and I
will go back to its pages more than once.
Bravo, Emma! This book gets a five rose
rating from me!" —Kelly, My Book
4.5 Blue Ribbons: "Inside
one of London’s most exclusive clubs
several gentlemen gather once a month to
visit with one another. As a diversion,
Jonas Maxim suggests they each reveal
their most daring sexual exploits. After
all, they are men and sex is one of their
favorite subjects. The Earl of Grayson
requests the opportunity to be the first
to share his tale...
Emma Wildes’ Brothers of the Absinthe Club series is
off to a brilliant start with this gem of
a tale. Arabian Pearl satisfies
that wicked fantasy that many women have
of being kidnapped and thrust into the
life of a harem girl while still retaining
a sense of independence and a hope for
freedom. I love how Celia changes
throughout the storyline - she goes from a
shy virgin to a self confident young woman
who rejoices in her own sexuality.
Robert’s blatant adoration of Celia really
endears him to me.
Arabian Pearl captured my interest from the very
first page and held me enthralled right to
the end. I can hardly wait to find out
which of the other men tells his story of
daring sexual exploits in The
—Chrissy Dionne, Romance Junkies
4.5 Stars: "Arabian
Pearl is the first book in the
Brothers of the Absinthe Club 1 series
which promises to be filled with great
heroes and heroines as well as sizzling
molten lava sex. I enjoyed the story of
Robert and Celia who were both put in a
situation out of their control. Robert
didn't want to harm Celia but if he didn't
use her as a pleasure slave she would be
lost to the harem forever. Celia realizes
giving Robert pleasure for two weeks is a
small price to pay for her freedom and she
begins to fall in love with him."
"Arabian Pearl is an exotic treat for those who love an erotic twist to their historical romances. Robert and Celia are your quintessential Regency hero and heroine who completely bypass the typical courtship. Instead, they are plunged into a voluptuous feast of the senses and, in letting go of their inhibitions, find a love that is truly unique. Relayed by Robert via flashback, this is the first story to be shared by a group of best friends gathered at the Absinthe Club. With its lush narrative and perfectly pitched pacing, Emma Wildes has begun an intriguing series sure to have an eager following."

Lela moved in graceful silence across the room and slipped out
the door, closing it behind her.
They will be watching as you bed her…Abdul’s warning rang in his
head. If Robert spared Rushton’s young daughter, she was
doomed. Neither could he simply sit down and explain the
situation either. He’d found the small slits in the wall by
the bed, cleverly worked into a mosaic relief, and not only
would whoever sat there and covertly watched see them clearly,
they could also hear anything that was said, he was sure. It
would be an insult to his host if he explained to her he was
only doing this because he was forced by her circumstances.
The situation was untenable, but there seemed little choice.
Was it rape, Robert wondered, if both parties are unwilling to perform
Well, not precisely unwilling, he reminded himself wryly. He was almost
fully hard, and as he approached the bed, he felt himself
stiffen further. The beautiful nude woman waiting there was
not a sight any man could ignore. She watched him, her lashes
still lowered, and he could see the slight rapid beat of her
pulse in her throat.
He smiled at her as he sat down on the edge of the bed and reached down
to touch her cheek. “What’s your name?”
“Celia.” The answer was hushed almost inaudible.
Yes, that was it, he remembered now. Lady Celia Davenport. “You are
lovely, Celia,” he told her, his fingers lightly tracing the
full curve of her lower lip. Her mouth was pink and perfect
and he urged her to a sitting position facing him, her long
hair trailing over her slim shoulders. “I won’t hurt you,” he
promised, leaning closer, brushing his mouth across hers.
Her eyes, azure blue at this close range, simply watched him. He kissed
her again, a light pressure, tasting her.
“Tell me, where are you from?” he asked for their unwanted audience.
The slight shake of her head told him that she had obviously been
instructed to keep silent about her background. “I see,” he
murmured, not touching her in anyway except for the drift of
his mouth across her jaw. “Can you speak with me at all?”
“If you ask me a question, my lord, I will answer it if I am allowed.”
Inhaling her delicate fragrance, Robert slipped his arm around her waist
and brought her closer, into his embrace. Her breasts pressed
against his partially open robe and he could feel the warmth
of her smooth, pliant skin. Whispering in her ear, hoping it
looked as if he was continuing his gentle wooing and trying to
ease her fears, he said, “Do not react in any way to what I am
about to say, please, but I know your father. I hope only you
can hear me say this.”
To her credit, she showed no outward sign of a reaction, but he felt it.
Her heartbeat increased and her breathing changed slightly. He
moved his mouth to her neck, pressing against that quickened
pulse, before sliding upward again. With delicate care, he
nibbled on her earlobe, the movement of his lips concealed by
her silken hair. “I am trying to free you, but we must do
this. If you understand, put your arms around me.”
Her arms slid around his waist.
“And you have to submit completely or you’ll be here forever.”
He hoped only he heard the small sound she made, a sob caught in the
back of her throat. Rushton’s pretty daughter had courage, he
found then, for she said in a throaty voice that would due
credit to any harem girl, “You are very handsome, my lord. I
hope I please you well. Whatever you ask, it is my pleasure to
He shifted again, licking a path downward her stomach.
She caught her breath when he ordered softly, “Spread your legs. I want
to look at you.”
Lying back on the thick coverlet, she lowered her lashes a fraction and
complied, opening her thighs with difficulty, her face flushed
“Wider. I want to see all of you.”
Obligingly, she opened farther, stifling the urge to protest as his hand
slipped between her legs and he touched her intimately.
Propped one elbow, his robe open to show his muscular chest,
he stared at her exposed sex, running his finger along the
crease of her labia lightly, making her stifle a gasp. “I like
it bare like this,” he told her, his smile dark and almost
teasing, if that could be possible under the circumstances. “I
can see how female you are.” Using his long fingers, she felt
him part her folds, exposing the tender, protected tissue
underneath, holding her cleft open. “So pink and soft, like
wet, hot velvet. Have you ever touched yourself here, Celia?”
His fingers drifted very lightly over the most sensitive part of her
body and she fought a moan, the sensation was so uniquely
exquisite, a throbbing beginning in the very spot he touched.
“No,” she managed to admit.
Very carefully, he pushed her apart even more. She could feel the cool
air on the vulnerable area he opened so wide. “You should.
There is a small nub here.” His fingers glided upward as he
spoke. “It is your female equivalent of my male sexual organ.
When it is stimulated, you feel intense pleasure and orgasmic
release. Let me show you.”
His finger moved, touched someplace she wasn’t even aware existed, and
she cried out involuntarily, the feeling was so physically
pleasing. She arched as he stroked her again, his fingers
circling, causing her to shut her eyes in wonder of the
response of her wayward body to that skilled, carnal torture.
“You’re getting very wet,” he murmured, “and your bud is swelling
underneath my fingers. That’s good, I want you ready for me
when I enter you.”
She barely heard the words, her world nothing but the almost painful
pleasure between her legs as he continued to caress with
slightly more pressure. “Oh,” she breathed, her hips moving
involuntarily as her body trembled.
“You are easily aroused. My fingers are drenched. In fact,” he said
huskily, “I think that you are there.”
Where, she thought wildly as her body began to shudder, waves of
ecstasy washing through her as she twisted against the touch
of his fingers. It felt so sublime for a moment she stopped
caring she was in bed with a mysterious stranger, not
concerned that some unknown voyeur could see her abandon, but
only aware of the exquisite pulse of pleasure. She was barely
aware when he removed his hand and stood up, her body still
humming as the English stranger who had just done an
incredible thing to her slipped out of his robe.
Her eyes widened slightly as she actually saw his cock, erect and stiff
against his stomach. It looked even bigger than she had
imagined, but instead of being frightened, she was
She wasn’t going to be a virgin much longer.
