Wild Jasmine was a silly bodice ripper and while I could enjoy those silly books if I am in the mood, I had come to know a lot more from thi author therefore I was frustrated in this one.

I am now a fan of thi uthor and will hopefull give her other books a chance, hoping for the highly imaginativ, if not exactly reliabl, historical fiction I loved to much in The Spitfire and Love, Remember Me.

Jasmine 's mother, Velvet, managed to rekindle love with her second usband, while Jasmine 's father Akbar, was n't as enamored of any of his other 39 wives, and loss of Velvet in his life made his hair turn white in a week.And so Jasmine 's childhood in India continues without her other, but with some very devoted caretakers. ( view spoiler) [ The reason she leaves India as a teenager is her half-brother 's insane lust for her.

He has illed her husband and when Akbar dies he will force Jasmine into his bed.Jasmine 's life in England starts, where she meets her grandmother -- and the rest.

It is here that ONE of thi most contrived situations in he ook takes place.Understandably Jasmine would grieve at her daughter 's death, but it does n't seem remotely realistic that she ould ave the power to drain her own life force away, unless her demand of one last sexual encounter with the dead wif is granted.

he two feisty things she does, the hole book through, are ( view spoiler) [ to sell her first husband 's five sex slaves off, and to abscond with her four children from England, to recove a third arranged marriage.

Anglicizing herself as Jasmine, she forms a special bond with her dynamic grandmother Skye O'Malley, and leads journey of love, heartbrea and scandal.Almost written as two books ( part one being India, part 2 as England) this was n interesting although not entirely engrossing.

Which inturn leaves Jasmine no choice but flee to England where her granddaughte, the infamous Skye O'Malley lives.
