Shannon Smith thinks her marriage to the intense, brooding Hani bin Nasser is one of convenience, but her mysterious Saudi husband has other plans.


Politically Incorrect: Subjugated is an interesting novella, with an equally interesting theme especially when one considers today's political climate. While reading it, it is apparent that Ms. Black manages to handle the subject with an extremely delicate and refreshing touch. Perhaps this is because she refrains from mentioning anything remotely political and concentrates her focus on the romantic and cultural aspects of the story. Those differences, both the minute and the complex, are illustrated in a number of ways and show how much time and attention Ms. Black spent researching her book.

I found Politically Incorrect: Subjugated to be a very charming romance, perhaps because it reminded me of an old-fashioned bodice ripper with the stereotypical dominant hero and his oh so wonderfully defiant heroine. Shannon and Hani are not the perfect couple, they just happen to be the perfect couple for each other. Coming to terms with this fact takes them a little time and several misunderstandings to work through and affords the reader with several colorful moments as they take these missteps. Ms. Black has a very deft touch in showing how Middle Eastern men view women and how these beliefs conflict when one has a Western, and somewhat strong-willed, wife. If you are looking for a straight forward romance, with a happy ending and a fun filled middle, this is the book for you.
