A Woman Of Pleasure

Arabella Seymour

Naseema Khan, illegitimate daughter of an Indian mother and an English father, is born and brought up in abject poverty, shunned and despised because of her mixed blood. But her striking looks set her apart from an early age: having excited the lust of the weather money-lender who employs her mother as a menial in his household, Naseema runs away when she faces being sold into marriage with him – by the mother she adored and trusted. Intelligent and resourceful, she devises a wildly ambitious plan to escape to Europe…and in Paris her life suddenly takes on a very unexpected turn.

Arabella was born and educated in London, then worked in London Libraries before moving to Kent, where she was able to concentrate on writing full time. ‘I was incredibly lucky to be able to work from home, as I had a young, pre-school age daughter, and equally lucky to be signed up with Michael Sissons at what then was AD Peters. My novels were sold to France and the USA as well as the UK, and serialised by WOMAN’S DAY in Australia.’
