    1. What readers and other authors are saying about P.J.Parker s novel ROXELANA AND SULEYMAN A vibrant historical with well developed characters Impeccable attention to detail Arresting settings Lively dialogue Opulent narrative Well thought out plot Splendid writing PJ, great pace Well researched, well written Your main characters have emotional depth A D come alive Ok, I got all the way to Chapter 29 when I realized I was still reading I really got caught up in all of this you ve captured the esse [...]


    2. Exotic Saga It is an interesting romantic saga in the historical fiction genre, very colorful and cultured.Well written, immersive and enjoyable with exotic scenery.


    3. Good story too soon over Heard of the great story of Roxelana Suleyman the magnificent always wondered what their story might have been, although fictionalized thisdoes go someway in answering this question Good story but not very long is my only problem


    4. The characters were well developed and even though I had pre conceived views about Roxelana I warmed and bonded to her in this story I wanted to understand about the ladies of the harem and gained some insight from this book Overall I think the story struggled between historical fiction and erotic novel Much of the sensual parts I found to be unexciting and actually detracted from the story None the less I read to the end and was eager to understand how the story would conclude


    5. Relax and read a sample of the updated version of the internationally acclaimed romantic saga ROXELANA SULEYMAN Roxelana ElSultan Suleyman



    6. Piece of garbage I loved the Magnificent Century show And thought this would be a good book to read But it is filled with sexual situations that a Sultan would never get involved with Sharing a Sultana with another man would never happen.
