About the Book
Confessions of a Sheba Queen by Autumn Bardot
Publication Date: March 10, 2019
eBook & Paperback; 384 Pages
With a host of unforgettable characters and unbridled sensual escapades, Confessions of a Sheba Queen is a triumphantly erotic retelling of an indomitable woman prevailing in a man’s world.
During a raging sandstorm along a riverbed in the ancient lands of Saba, a powerful jinni born of smokeless fire gives birth to a half-human daughter. Bilqis does not inherit her mother’s magical abilities, but the fire of her jinni blood does imbue her with other powerful gifts. As she undergoes her rites of womanhood and her insatiable sexual hunger is awakened, it becomes clear—this is the key to her “great destiny” prophesized at her birth. But it could also lead to her total undoing.
Bilqis comes to understand that her supernatural talents have the power to make men, and women, and nations prostrate themselves in utter devotion to her. When tragedy strikes, she leaves her home to seek revenge against the tyrannical god-king whose reign is a plague upon his land and people. Armed with only her body, courage, and wits, she quickly masters the art of seduction, all the while resisting the mind-consuming call to stay locked in an endless cycle of carnal passion.
Destiny soon intervenes, and what began as a quest for vengeance becomes a mission to heal the land of Saba from a twisted, corrupt regime and to see it become the wealthiest kingdom in all the land. Yet, it is only after meeting the already legendary and wildly attractive King Solomon that Bilqis discovers her greatest battle is not with others, but with herself.
This cover, just, wow. I think I need to learn how to up my makeup game! Like dang, I am LACKING in skill! But anyways, let’s move on. This book, just, wow. I know, repeating myself? Again?! Aren’t I sick of it? Nope! My statements stand! This cover and this book, just, wow!
So, I don’t think I’ve every really read any historical erotica before (unless Outlander counts?), so this is a new genre from me. And it’s a genre that I, *ahem,* think I need to check out some more of! But with anything remotely smutty there’s a good way to handle it and then there’s a not so good way to handle it. Confessions of a Sheba Queen most definitely falls under the good way of handling it. Actually, I may argue that it falls under the great way of handling it! It’s just so… elevated? That’s not really the word I’m looking for, but it’s a very posh type of smut that makes me feel fancy reading. Lol. But seriously, Bardot can write!
But even through all of these fan yourself types of scenes, the story itself is so good and interesting! I mean, the lushness of the scenery! The iconic story! Just, yes please! I love when I read historical fiction and I feel like I’m in the story. I find that so often I read these types of books and it feels like I’m sitting through a history lesson. And while this is not a bad thing, sometimes I also just want to be transported back through time and feel like I’m living through it. You know, especially with content such as this *wink.*
