The story revolves around the mythical visit to King Solomon in Jerusalem, by the beautiful, rich, and powerful Queen of Sheba, from North Africa.
The first thing I particularly liked about this story was that it didn't actually focus on the relationship between the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon, that was merely the sideshow to the true action. No, the story was really about a shy, handmaiden of the Queen who meets and is smitten with a young Jewish man.
The erotica was beautifully written; very sexy and arousing. I enjoyed Guillaume's luscious descriptions, which never descended into vulgarity, but still left nothing to our fevered imaginations.
I could certainly see Sheba's Lovely Maidens as a book you would keep beside your bed and read on a lonely, cold night. Trust me, it would warm you up pretty quick.
Because this is a short book, at only 57 pages on Kindle, I don't think I can give it five stars, but it is a four-star plus book in its genre. A very good read Fionna Guillaume and thank you for it.
